TWITTER REPORT: World Cup Indifference, 'Cowboys And Aliens' Shooting, And 'Gears of War 3'

Cowboys and AliensPaul Cornell may be excited about the World Cup kicking off in South Africa, but there was a lot of indifference in the Twitter Report feed today too. His words for the hater and Jimmy Palmiotti's thoughts on soccer in general are retweeted below.

Elsewhere, "Cowboys and Aliens" has commenced shooting, according to Olivia Wilde. You can find out how she feels about that after the jump, as well as where you'll be able to find an "Echo" omnibus from Terry Moore soon, and what Jhonen Vasquez hopes to see in "Gears of War 3."
