If you've been thinking about "V for Vendetta" and trying to figure out how to celebrate Guy Fawkes Day, look no further than the Twitter accounts of Neil Gaiman and Simon Pegg today. Along with the recent casting news regarding Sally Field and Martin Sheen in Marc Webb's "Spider-Man," the holiday has been a trending topic.
Comics creators have been raising other important issues as well, though, such as how the "Twilight" graphic novel could succeed despite its font choices and whether or not the Secret Six are a better team than the Outsiders. Find out who's arguing for what and who got to see Metallica play at a "Call of Duty: Black Ops" launch event after the jump.
