Matt Fraction, Fred Van Lente and Mark Millar all seem to have their own ideas about what Columbus Day represents, and no matter how you feel about today's holiday, they've got wishes and ideas for you to ponder after the jump.
Meanwhile, most of the comics industry probably needed a holiday today, thanks to this year's New York Comic Con. Neil Gaiman didn't miss a beat, though, and dashed on over to a Comic Book Legal Defense Fund meeting. Check out what Jim Lee did when the show wrapped, as well as what advice Rob Liefeld has to offer Brett Favre down below.
I'm @brianwarmoth, and this is your Twitter Report for October 11, 2010.
Columbus Day pt. 1: @mattfraction happy columbus day! now get lost and slaughter something.
-Matt Fraction, Writer ("Thor," "Casanova")
Columbus Day pt. 2: @fredvanlente HAPPY COLUMBUS DAY! I celebrate by "discovering" a stranger's house. If he stops me from moving in, I shoot him. Then I give him a disease.
-Fred Van Lente, Writer ("Action Philosophers," "Marvel Zombies")
Columbus Day pt. 3: @mrmarkmillar I saw Chris Columbus was trending on Twitter and assumed the Home Alone guy had a new movie out. Such has the Hollywood beast consumed me.
-Mark Millar, Writer ("Wanted," "Kick-Ass")
@robertliefeld Brett Favre should emulate Mel G who never responded to allegations, insinuated it was all staged and phony, until the interest died.
-Rob Liefeld, Writer/Artist ("X-Force," "Youngblood")
-Jim Lee, Artist ("Batman," "X-Men")
@neilhimself Today I'm in a @CBLDF board of directors planning meeting. It will be more interesting than it sounds.
-Neil Gaiman, Writer ("The Sandman," "Miracleman")
@chuckbb If you told me that I'd like a TV show featuring Ted Danson I'd call you a lying jerk. But you'd be right - Bored To Death is good times.

@Paul_Cornell Today I'm writing a DC comic I can't tell you about yet. But it's coming out very soon.
