Reactions to Daft Punk's "Tron: Legacy" soundtrack continued to trickle in today, but they were joined by a rumor that the film may be accompanied by a theatrical trailer for "Thor." A lot of faces in the feed may be big supporters of such a move, but I don't think Evan Dorkin is among them.
In other posts, the anniversary of John Lennon's death brought out Twitter's sentimental side, and if you didn't already know which Marvel writer named his son after Lennon, you will after today. Those details, along with Brian Michael Bendis' "iCarly" excitement, Matt Fraction's latest joke-writing assignment and Erik Larsen's pick for the most screwed up Christmas Carol await you below.
