In all of the excitement getting "Siege" #1 out this week, a page of text got mistakenly duplicated in the issue's backmatter. Marvel put the corrected pages up on Marvel.com, but Tom Brevoort, Brian Michael Bendis and Chris Eliopoulos had brief discussion on Twitter about where blame should rest.
In other news, work-in-progress tweets have been all the rage for the last 24 hours. "Mouse Guard" creator David Petersen, Gail Simone, Mark Brooks and Jock all tweeted updates about the projects they've been chipping away at. The retweets are all lined up for you after the jump along with Rob Liefeld's thoughts on "Youngblood" in 3D and some advice from Todd McFarlane.
