'Star Trek' Waffles, Jim Lee Art And A Surprise Comics-Webcomics Connection In Today's Twitter Report

'Star Trek' waffles - image copyright Duane SwierczynskiEver wonder what comic book creators feed their kids in the morning? Well, at least one writer out there has discovered waffles with Star Trek characters on them. I can't imagine there's any better way to casually encourage sci-fi conversations with the family at the breakfast table. The Twitter Report kicks off today with that pic from Duane Swierczynski and some Jim Lee Batman artwork that is magnificent.

Right after that, there's a piece of trivia that came to light on Twitter in the last 24 hours -- apparently "Amazing Spider-Man" writer Dan Slott was high school chums with one of my favorite webcomics creators, Bill Barnes of the library strip "Unshelved." Click on down to check those out, along with tweets from Paul Pope, Evan Dorkin and Tony Moore. It's all in the Twitter Report for September 18, 2009.

@swierczy http://twitpic.com/i5i3t - Star Trek Waffles: proof our kids are being raised by nerds.

-Duane Swierczynski, Writer ("Cable," "The Immortal Iron Fist")

@jimlee00 http://twitpic.com/i4279 - Trying to get into the swing of things so I can slowly slide back into work mode (a piece many of u may not have seen):

-Jim Lee, Artist ("X-Men," "Batman")

@DanSlott Ol' high school pal, @billba, was in town and took me out for sushi. Had a lovely time. Thanks @bilba! :)

-Dan Slott, Writer ("Avengers: The Initiative," "The Amazing Spider-Man")

@billba Enjoyed catching up with @danslott over sushi. Both of us are fatter and balder than in high school. Weird.

-Bill Barnes, Writer/Artist ("Unshelved")

@mrtonylee Todays pages of Pride & Prejudice & Zombies - a tea party and a dinner evening. I'm hitting the mother lode!

-Tony Lee, Writer ("Doctor Who," "The Gloom")

@pulphope Comics for magazine editorial is more tedious than usual comics cos there are fact checkers and more editors than usual. Requires patience.

-Paul Pope, Writer/Artist ("Batman: Year 100," "Battling Boy")

@evandorkin Monster of the Day: That rock monster on the old Star Trek show who made a fake Abe Lincoln. Can't make that crap up. Well, someone did.

-Evan Dorkin, Writer/Aritst ("Milk & Cheese," "Dork!")

@radiomaru I think it's the ONLY comic that I kept up with over those ten years. My tastes have completely changed, but 100 Bullets is still perfect.

-Bryan Lee O'Malley, Writer/Artist ("Scott Pilgrim vs. The World")

Parting Wisdom for the Day:

@tonymoore Fun Fact: When i was a kid, i thought the guy on the Quaker Oats box was Boss Hogg. i still have my suspicions.

-Tony Moore, Artist ("Fear Agent," "The Walking Dead")
