TWITTER REPORT: J-Lo, The World Cup, And Retailer Power Over Marvel

Marvel iPad appJ-Lo made headlines during her MTV Movie Awards appearance Sunday, but she could find herself in a comic book as well. An accident on an airplane may have forever altered the course of a script Jeff Parker was working on if his tweets are to be believed.

You can definitely believe the sincerity behind Scott Kutz and Bill Amend's opinions in a discussion right now about who Marvel will be hurting and/or helping with their decision to release "Invincible Iron Man Annual" #1 simultaneously via digital and brick-and-mortar channels. Decide where you stand after the jump. There, you can also find out who's watching the World Cup, how Eric Powell feels about drawing some new Goon action, and what Kevin Smith thinks of "True Blood" Season 2.
