Curious to know what "Scott Pilgrim vs. The World" looks like? Try asking Wes Anderson the next time you see him. Edgar Wright tweeted last night that the "Fantastic Mr. Fox" director got a sneak peek at the new film. In an earlier post, he also clarified "The Winstead Effect", which he defines as "the 15 minutes that gets lost when any member of the post production team look directly in Ramona's eyes."
On the other side of the Twittersphere, Jock tweeted triumphantly that Vertigo will reprint the first 12 issues of "The Losers" in a new paperback, which should give it a nice head start on the April film. You can also check out which creators were most excited about "Brutal Legend" and what it looks like when Whilce Portacio draws Iron Man and Wolverine.
I'm @brianwarmoth, and this is the Twitter Report for October 13, 2009.
@edgarwright I also showed Wes Anderson about ten minutes of Scott Pilgrim. It was indeed exciting and hugely nerve wracking. Has been a good night.

@DanSlott Absentmindedly (though successfully) screwed the toothpaste cap on upside down. I think it's a sign. Today all the rules are out the window.

Parting Wisdom for the Day:
@andydiggle What if Somali pirates hijacked a cargo ship only to find it's full of illegal toxic waste? Story sense... tingling!
