And speaking of criticism, there’s been no shortage of it mixed in with the compliments for “Tron: Legacy.” More responses rolled out in the Twitter Report feed today, along with Eric Powell’s reaction to Brett Favre’s $50K fine, Kalman Andrasofszky’s new webcomic idea and the identity of a confessed Spider-Man Snuggie owner.
I’m @brianwarmoth, and this is your Twitter Report for December 30, 2010.
@GerryDuggan Tron romanticized horrible arcades. The truth is back in the 80’s they were filled with half-working machines, cigarette smoke & mustaches.
-Gerry Duggan, Writer (“The Infinite Horizon”)
@Robwilliams71 Tron: Legacy. Not great, sadly. Was pretty bored. Duff old script. Sounds great. Looks good. Erm…
-Rob Williams, Writer (“Dark X-Men: The Beginning,” “Robocop”)
@CBCebulski Show us you can write comics first. Then we’ll let you know if we think you’re ready to write Marvel comics.
-C.B. Cebulski, Sr. VP, Creator and Content Development (Marvel)
@jeffparker Okay, I’ve finally read the Patton Oswalt piece. We’re overreacting. If Geeks are going to be mainstream we need to be able to take a punch.
-Jeff Parker, Writer (“Agents of Atlas,” “Dark Reign: The Hood”)
@goonguy Favre fined 50k for sexual harassment. 5% of one game check. If broken into yearly income, he literally makes that amount in 3 minutes.
-Eric Powell, Writer/Artist (“The Goon,” “Action Comics”)
@evilkalman I just came up with the best webcomic idea you guys. It could be the next Dinosaur Comics, but also likely get me sued to f—. What to do?
-Kalman Andrasofszky, Artist (“NYX: No Way Home,” “Dazzler”)
@theramonperez inking on captain america going much better today then yesterday. yesterday more white out was used than ink.
-Ramón Pérez, Writer/Artist (“Kukuburi,” “Dazzler”)
Deep Thought for the Day:
@DanSlott Perfect storm: heat’s out + an impulse buy. And now I’m wearing a Spider-Man Snuggie. Noting the date: 12/30/10. Last shred of dignity: gone
-Dan Slott, Writer (“The Amazing Spider-Man,” “Avengers: The Initiative”)
