The rebooted "Planet of the Apes" franchise proved to be a juggernaut in theaters over the weekend, and the tweet reactions it received show why. Jhonen Vasquez claimed to have accidentally stumbled into a different ape film, but I've got my doubts about that.

@KurtBusiek Oh, and congrats to the Red Sox for winning the season series against the Yankees, too, even with 6 more games to go in it.

@Christosgage If @KurtBusiek roots for the Red Sox it means they are Superman and the Yankees are Magog.

@jimlee00 I'm getting too old to handle Cheez-its...their chemically altered flavor is too pure...might have to downgrade to cheddar Goldfish
