Even though Veteran's Day doesn't give your kid a day off from school (Neil Gaiman checked), the Twitter Report joins all of the creators in our feed today acknowledging the risks taken and sacrifices made by service men and women alike.
Not all of the V's in today's posts belonged to Veteran's Day, though. Now in its second week, "V" watchers are starting to decide how much they like (or dislike) ABC's remake of the '80s TV series. Brian Reed and Paul Southworth were among those sticking with it.
Meanwhile, Jill Thompson was soliciting Twitter advice last night for an "X-Men" bet, Jamal Igle made his pick for best superhero movie of all time, and Todd McFarlane offered more advice to aspiring creators.
I'm @brianwarmoth and this your Twitter Report for November 11, 2009.

@neilhimself Enough concerned tweets that I checked school calendar, and no, Veteran's Day isn't a day off here. Nor President's Day. Thanksgiving is.

@BrianReed Re: V -- the sooner we kill the kid's irritating friend, the better. Same goes for the old priest.
-Brian Reed, Writer ("Ms. Marvel," "Secret Invasion: Front Line")
@Southworth "V", I don't think you are very good. You are not a very good show, but I will keep watching you anyway.
