Usually, I don't stretch the Twitter Report back past the 24-hour mark, but last week's shot of C.B. Cebulski with Paris Hilton from the Marvel/CBLDF bowling fundraiser produced an unprecedented industry crossover. (Paris Hilton, of course, being her own industry.) It didn't quite make Twitter in time for last Friday's installment, but it's worth the wait, believe me.
Meanwhile, down in Baltimore, Erik Larsen praised this year's Baltimore Comic-Con for sticking to comics and not having any media guests in attendance. Jason Aaron, who was also in attendance, seemed to enjoy himself, and tweeted a celeb encounter after the show with former NBA star Manute Bol. Check out what they had to say below along with a custom action figure by "Hack/Slash" creator Tim Seeley and Dan Slott's "Rock Band" wishlist.
It's all in the Twitter Report for October 12, 2009.
