Unsurprisingly enough, the new "Dark Knight Rises" poster attracted multiple comments from the comics community on Twitter yesterday. Kevin Smith loved it, as did Cameron Stewart. Even Batman himself spoke up—and explained the changes he would have made.
Elsewhere, Brian Michael Bendis began tweeting from the "Powers" TV set. His thoughts, Simon Pegg on aging and Mark Millar's recommendations for a "Highlander" reboot and more await you after the jump.
