@RyanOttley Just watched the Conan Barbarian preview, looks it might be fun.

@marjoriemliu Something about that classic Conan movie was just so juicy and rough. It had soul, man. Hope the new one has more than special effects.
-Marjorie Liu, Writer (“X-23,” “NYX: No Way Home”)
“Thor” pt. 1: @fredvanlente Really enjoyed THOR. Cameo at the end choked me up a bit. You’ll know it when you see it.
-Fred Van Lente, Writer Writer (“Action Philosophers,” “Marvel Zombies”)
“Thor” pt. 2: @DanSlott Back from THORRRRR!!!! So? What’d I think? BEST Marvel movie since IRON MAN. Great cast! Epic battles! Good use of 3-D! Awesome cameos! YAY!
-Dan Slott, Writer (“Amazing Spider-Man,” “Avengers: The Initiative”)
“Thor” pt. 3: @goonguy Was never really into Thor. As long as he smashes stuff with the hammer, I will probably like it more than people who love Thor.

“Thor” pt. 4: @paulazaceta My review off Thor…. Volstagg wasn’t fat enough!
-Paul Azaceta, Artist (“The Amazing Spider-Man,” “Punisher Noir”)
@rstevens If I walk into an Apple store in Canada, you think they could help me get a prepaid data sim card for an iPad? I want to blog the trip.
