With all of the terrible happenings in the news this week, today felt like the perfect Wednesday to veer away from contentious opinions, looting in London and big events impacting individuals who happen to work in comics. So here, without further ado are the ten tweets in the Twitter Report feed from the last 24 hours that were most likely to induce happiness.
They include details about the "Locke and Key" game from Joe Hill, Eric Powell Godzilla art and Stan Lee smiling next to a real life Stripperella. (Spoiler alert: He looks really, really happy.) They are in no particular order except for the best one being last.
I'm @brianwarmoth, and this is the Twitter Report for August 10, 2011.
-Stan Lee, Writer ("Amazing Spider-Man," "Fantastic Four")
@skottieyoung Rise of the planet of the Apes was pretty sick. I wanted to see the sequel right away. I'm in! Going home to watch the original now.
-Skottie Young, Artist ("New X-Men," "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz")
@brubaker Rise of the Apes was shockingly good. Way to go, Rupert Wyatt.
-Ed Brubaker, Writer ("Captain America," "Criminal")
-Reilly Brown, Artist ("Cable & Deadpool," "Incredible Hercules")
@DanSlott It's probably just me. When I started out, guys scrambled to get 8 pg stories in MCP. And you treated each page like precious real estate.
-Dan Slott, Writer ("Amazing Spider-Man," "Avengers: The Initiative")
-Eric Powell, Writer/Artist ("Action Comics," "The Goon")
"Locke and Key" pt. 1: @joe_hill Hadda blast watching the L&K pilot w/ @MissLiberty, @jcyr & the @JetpackComics crew tonight. And playing the forthcoming LOCKE & KEY game.
-Joe Hill, Writer ("Locke and Key")
"Locke and Key" pt. 2: @joe_hill Game is coming soon. Hell of a lot of fun to play. Very high speed. Good use of the elements from the comic.
-Jim Mahfood, Writer/Artist ("Grrl Scouts," "Clerks")
