Now that Joss Whedon's "Dollhouse" has been cancelled on FOX, expect to see a lot more more tweets over the next few days from the comics Twitterverse. Paul Cornell was among those mourning the show's loss today and had some advice for Whedon.
Matt Fraction, meanwhile, offered some advice to CNN after learning that Lou Dobbs would be leaving his show on the network, and Mitch Breitweiser spoke up about artists being asked to work for free. Find out what they had to say after the jump along with Tony Lee's comics-related findings in India, what Skottie Young was up to at the hospital while waiting for his new baby to be born and Stan Lee's shout-out to Splash Page!
It's all in the Twitter Report for November 12, 2009.
-Stan Lee, Writer/Editor ("The Amazing Spider-Man," "The Fantastic Four")
@Paul_Cornell is sorry to hear Dollhouse is cancelled. Is it time for Joss to depart TV for an online subscriber show? Maybe the first of a new trend.
-Paul Cornell, Writer ("Wisdom," "Captain Britain and MI: 13")
@skottieyoung Why I am I watching Gilmore Girls at 7:49 am? Oh yeah, it's Casey's favorite show and we're at the hospital waiting for our baby to be born.
-Skottie Young, Artist ("New X-Men," "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz")
@mattfraction CNN I WILL WATCH YOU FOREVER IF YOU REPLACE LOU DOBBS WITH A MEXICAN JOURNALIST
-Matt Fraction, Writer ("Casanova," "Invincible Iron Man")
India pt 1: @mrtonylee @warrenellis I told people today in Kolkata that you were a comic writing master, they threw stones and herded me out of the city.
-Tony Lee, Writer ("Doctor Who," "The Gloom")
India pt 2: @warrenellis @mrtonylee I'm told that that was just because they realised who you were, not because of anything you said
-Warren Ellis, Writer ("Transmetropolitan," "Planetary")
India pt 3: @mrtonylee @warrenellis Apparently I'm the guy who created Batman Returns, according to the national paper. It might have been for that.
@robertliefeld For best artist of the decade it's a tie between Bryan Hitch and Frank Quietly. Between their Authority work and everything that follows...
-Rob Liefeld, Writer/Artist ("X-Force," "Onslaught Reborn")
Parting Wisdom for the Day:
Free work pt 1: @mbreitweiser Young artist just asked me if they had what it takes, & that they are working on a book with no pay, but % of sales off the back. *sigh*
-Mitch Breitweiser, Artist ("Drax the Destroyer," "Captain America: The Chosen")
Free work pt 2: @mbreitweiser Seriously, I don't know why anyone in their right mind would work for no pay, unless it's from your own creator owned property.
