I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that Alan Moore could not have cared less about the "Green Lantern" and "Cowboys and Aliens" trailers that premiered in time for his birthday this week, but a handful of creators in our feed cared enough about him to celebrate his birthday with posts. Gene Ha summed up the day's significance nicely.
As for Jon Favreau's new movie, the first clips to show up in public got a warm welcome broadly. There are some skeptics, though, and Kevin Colden was among them. Check out whose side you're on and photographic evidence of what could happen to you if you try drawing "Ant-Man and the Wasp" near Mike Norton.
I'm @brianwarmoth, and this is the Twitter Report for November 18, 2010.
@GeneHa On this day in 1957, a child was born to us in Northampton. Failing at LSD dealing & cartoons, Mr Moore wrote comic books. Happy bday, Alan!

@mrmarkmillar The Green Lantern trailer looks great. Why's everybody bitching? Reynolds is perfect casting.
-Mark Millar, Writer ("Wanted," "Kick-Ass")
-Jim Lee, Artist ("Batman," "X-Men")
@Todd_McFarlane HOLLYWOOD: Calls coming out of the woodwork because of WALKING DEAD success. Producers all want the 'new' comic book thing to develop. TODD
