'Akira,' Dave McKean's 'Cages' Movie, And Inviting Brian Bendis To School In Today's Twitter Report

CagesDave McKean proved that his award-winning artwork can go for the long haul in his feature length movie "MirrorMask" with Neil Gaiman. Now, it sound like he's taken a step forward with adapting his own graphic novel "Cages," according to a tweet this morning.

Meanwhile, Brian Michael Bendis received an old-fashioned fan letter in the mail inviting him to appear at a 10-year-old's school. Unfortunately, there's a sad twist to the story. Find out about that, along with who Edgar Wright saw "Akira" with in 1989, where Steve Lieber's currently trying to obtain a new passport, and what terrible dreams about "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" plagued Jonathan Hickman last night.

It's all in the Twitter Report for October 21, 2009.
