Further controversy in the Report today come from Brett Favre’s annual retirement circus and a newly announced Justin Bieber biopic in 3-D. You’ll find two comics professionals who are not fans of those respective topics and thoughts on Vladimir Putin from David Hahn below.
I’m @brianwarmoth, and this is the Twitter Report for August 4, 2010.
@andeparks So, is this latest Favre ridiculousness about him holding the Vikes up for more cash? He’s not THAT far gone, is he?!
-Ande Parks, Writer/Artist (“Green Arrow,” “Capote”)
@GailSimone If the zombies in the comic had British accents, it would have to be retitled THE WALKING DEAD (ARE DEUCED CHARMING TO BROADS)
-Gail Simone, Writer (“Birds of Prey,” “Wonder Woman”)
@brubaker @neilhimself My wife still asks about u sometimes and I thought it was because u were nice, but now i see it’s just the accent, isn’t it?
-Ed Brubaker, Writer (“Captain America,” “Incognito”)
@D_MacPherson Justin Bieber 3D movie? I would rather eat my own face. #justsayin’
-Dwight MacPherson, Writer (“Sidewise,” “The Surreal Adventures of Edgar Allan Poo”)
@jeffparker hey no fair, how did Erik Larsen pull ahead of me in followers today
-Jeff Parker, Writer (“Agents of Atlas,” “Underground”)
@KurtBusiek Hey, for all that Erik Larsen may be a grumpus on Twitter, SAVAGE DRAGON is still a really fun book.
-Kurt Busiek, Writer (“Astro City,” “Avengers”)
@ErikJLarsen At no point in my life have I made blanket statements condemning any group–but folks are mighty quick to accuse me of doing such a thing.
-Erik Larsen, Writer/Artist (“Savage Dragon,” “The Amazing Spider-Man”)
Parting Wisdom for the Day:
@David_Hahn It’s totally impossible to accurately draw Vladimir Putin without it looking like you don’t know how to draw. #ruleofcomics#32
-David Hahn, Artist (“Marvel Adventures: Fantastic Four,” “Spider-Man Loves Mary Jane”)
