You can check out why Andy Diggle thinks “Sucker Punch” is like miniature Comic-Con, who’s been waiting for “SC2” and why Kevin Smith wants to meet “Mad Men” creator Matthew Weiner after the jump. Such answers await along with Mark Waid’s feelings about children, Jhonen Vasquez on casting an “Invader Zim” movie and a response to George Lopez dissing Comic-Con attendees.
I’m @brianwarmoth, and this is the Twitter Report for July 27, 2010.
@BrianReed STARCRAFT II, I think I love you.
-Brian Reed, Writer (“Ms. Marvel,” “Secret Invasion: Front Line”)
@mikechoi HOLY CRAP Just saw the trailer for Sucker Punch. My brain just broke in half and a baby playing a little trumpet danced out. What the hell.
-Mike Choi, Artist (“X-Force,” “X23: Target X”)
@andydiggle If you compressed the entire contents of SDCC down into a 35mm strip, you would end up with SUCKER PUNCH.
-Andy Diggle, Writer (“The Losers,” “Hellblazer”)
@ThatKevinSmith Finally watched MAD MEN season opener. I do so love this show, but I wish creator Matt Weiner was my friend, so he could explain sh– to me.
-Kevin Smith, Writer (“Green Hornet,” “Batman: Cacophony”)
@MarkWaid Mixed emotions at SDCC: Every time I thought to myself “Man, we need more kids into comics,” someone would bang a stroller into my ankle.
-Mark Waid, Writer (“Kingdom Come,” “Irredeemable”)
@bclaymoore Ah, nice. George Lopez is making fun of Comic-Con attendees. Does George Lopez have that much room to be lampooning people?
-B. Clay Moore, Writer (“Hawaiian Dick,” “Billy Smoke”)
@JhonenV Let’s cast the hideously ill-conceived INVADER ZIM movie, yeah? I think we can all agree that GIR would have to be played by Tommy Wiseau.
-Jhonen Vasquez, Writer/Artist (“Johnny the Homicidal Maniac,” “Invader Zim”)
@robertliefeld Truth is, comic writers and artists can’t compete with the Hollywood cache that is now so prominent at SDCC, so just go with the flow.
-Rob Liefeld, Writer/Artist (“X-Force,” “Youngblood”)
@edgarwright I just heard Sigourney Weaver may come to my premiere tomorrow. If so, I may act like Louis Tully around her all night.
-Edgar Wright, Director (“Scott Pilgrim vs. The World”)
Parting Wisdom for the Day:
@tonymoore Hey JEEP, when extolling the virtues of American products, perhaps Cash’s “God’s Gonna Cut you Down” isn’t the best anthem.
-Tony Moore, Artist (“Fear Agent,” “The Walking Dead”)
