The announcement that Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips' "Incognito" has been optioned by Fox led a big morning in comics and movies news topics in the Twitter Report feed. Right behind it was that first picture of Chris Hemsworth as Thor. Everyone obviously had an opinion about both of these topics, though Brubaker may not have been prepared for all of the reactions he encountered.
Elsewhere, Chicago and Los Angeles residents should check out the retweets below for some Free Comic Book Day appearances. If you want to track down Skottie Young, Tim Seeley or Greg Pak, Saturday should be your lucky day. Read where they'll be below alongside some excellent Yildiray Cinar and Jeff Lemire artwork.
I'm @brianwarmoth, and this is your Twitter Report for April 30, 2010.
Thor pt. 1: @philhester Thor looks cool, but no Hollywood art director has the guts to follow through on Kirby's stout monster proportions (Destroyer, Hulk).
-Phil Hester, Writer/Artist ("Green Arrow," "The Irredeemable Ant-Man")
Thor pt. 2: @JAMALIGLE @cameronMstewart I think they were going for a more regal feel, as Thor deserves.

Parting Wisdom for the Weekend:
"Incognito" pt. 1: @brubaker Boy, you think comics internet people are rude sometimes, have a movie deal announced and you learn where the real ugliness lies. Damn.
-Ed Brubaker, Writer ("Captain America," "Incognito")
"Incognito" pt. 2: @brubaker Of course, it's a really good problem to have, being accused of being a rip-off of My Name is Earl... didn't see that one coming.
