All in all, it was night of fiery words and critical screams in the Twitter Report feed, but I’ve summed up the big picture in retweets below as best I could. You can read on through to find out where everyone stands, and if you make it to the end I can promise you a glimpse of the most disturbing horse costume you’ve ever laid eyes on.
I’m @brianwarmoth, and this is the Twitter Report for May 24, 2010.
@BRIANMBENDIS i unfollowed a few good friends over the dickhead spoiler action. not cool.
-Brian Michael Bendis, Writer (“Ultimate Spider-Man,” “New Avengers”)
@ErikJLarsen I’m in the WTF camp when it comes to the LOST ending. Nice to see everybody one last time but seriously–that was a mess.
-Erik Larsen, Writer/Artist (“Savage Dragon,” “The Amazing Spider-Man”)
@ronmarz Interesting LOST reactions. People who were more invested in arcane mythology of the island are pissed off about answers they didn’t get.
-Ron Marz, Writer (“Green Lantern,” “Witchblade”)
@TheBurnham I dug the Lost finale. It didn’t explain squat, but I didn’t expect it to. It felt right.
-Chris Burnham, Artist (“X-Men: Divided We Stand,” “Nixon’s Pals”)
@DennisCalero #lost was science fiction written by people Who never wrote SF for people who never read SF. Thus I am not disappointed.
-Dennis Calero, Artist (“X-Factor,” “Legion of Super-Heroes”)
@Reilly_Brown If you liked the way that Lost never answered any questions for 6 years, and nothing was ever specific, you’ll LOVE the finale!
-Reilly Brown, Artist (“Cable & Deadpool,” “Incredible Hercules”)
@marcbernardin man, was that ever better than Battlestar Galactica’s finale. BURN!
-Marc Bernardin, Writer (“The Authority,” “The Highwaymen”)
@DanSlott One of the reasons the BSG series finale was SO bad was because SO much of the show was THE BEST stuff on television! That was a hard fall!
-Dan Slott, Writer (“The Amazing Spider-Man,” “Avengers: The Initiative”)
@Christosgage Michael Emerson got his LOST job ’cause Ruth & I wrote him such a great role on SVU. Pedophile…how often does a part like that come along?
-Christos Gage, Writer (“Union Jack,” “Absolution”)
@BrianReed As far as I’m concerned, that was a perfect finale. But I have a huge crush on Tina Fey and Julianne Moore both, so what do I know?
-Brian Reed, Writer (“Ms. Marvel,” “Secret Invasion: Front Line”)
Parting Wisdom for the Day:
Horse pt. 2: @SteveNiles @kmellon How much is a commission of a dude in a leather horse suit?
-Steve Niles, Writer (“30 Days of Night,” “Criminal Macabre”)
Horse pt. 3: @kmellon @SteveNiles It depends on the pose.
