Whether or not "True Blood" actor Stephen Moyer is in the running for Doctor Doom in a Fantastic Four movie reboot, Gail Simone has strong feelings about how Sue Storm should be cast, and she tweeted her hopes regarding the part (and Jessica Alba) yesterday.
Meanwhile, a "Firebreather" peek sneaked out at San Diego this summer, but further news may be on the way, judging from a Phil Hester post Monday. Make your own assessments after the jump, where you'll find out who in the comic book industry is unimpressed by "Doctor Who," what writing a TV pitch feels like for Warren Ellis, and what it looks like when artist Ming Doyle sketches Emma Frost.

@GailSimone I hope Marvel casts someone better than Jessica Alba to play Sue in the Fantastic Four reboot, like a can of corn or Soupy Sales' corpse.

@MarkBrooksArt Wow, that opened the floodgates! Sorry guys, Dr. Who just ain't my cup of tea. I'd rather watch my wife dry heave for an hour frankly.
