With the Fourth of July still three days away, Canadians in the feed got a head start on expressing their patriotism this morning. The Twitter Report wishes them all a happy Canada Day and hopes they celebrate safely.
In other lively summer events, some DC Comics readers are planning to protest the company's book reboots in a few weeks at Comic-Con International in San Diego. Jimmy Palmiotti had a suggestion for them, while PJ Holden proposed an alternative strategy for DC. Check out what they said and see an awesome in-progress Superman sketch by Mike Oeming after the jump.

@pauljholden Thinking about this again: DC should do an "Anti-Event", where no comic is linked and everything is completely self contained.

@David_Hahn If you're an art director & you instruct a client to draw "less like a comic, more like a graphic novel," you are conveying zero information
-David Hahn, Artist ("Marvel Adventures: Fantastic Four," "Spider-Man Loves Mary Jane")
