If you're a comic book reader on Twitter, two of the greatest joys you can find in your feed are Yildiray Cinar art posts and Gail Simone-created hash tags. This morning, the Great Tweet Magnet was benevolent, because Cinar tweets a Weapon X piece and Simone sounded off with her love for Bruce Wayne's butler using the #anysexyalfred tag.
In theaters, "Conan the Barbarian" has been struggling with its box office numbers. Rob Liefeld is a documented Conan fan, so his opinion means something on this matter. Meanwhile, Rafael Kayanan proposed his own approach to Conan filmmaking. Check out their thoughts and a reaction to Grant Morrison's recent Rolling Stone interview after the jump.
I'm @brianwarmoth, and this is the Twitter Report for August 23, 2011.
"Conan" pt. 1: @RafaelKayanan A Conan film should be parts Leone Western, creepiness of REC/THE SHINING but with treatment of violence ala Kurosawa, directed by Fincher.
-Rafael Kayanan, Artist ("Conan the Adventurer," "Amazing Spider-Man")
"Conan" pt. 2: @robertliefeld So...the new Conan is okay. Wish it were great. G'night.
-Rob Liefeld, Writer/Artist ("X-Force," "Youngblood")
-Yildiray Cinar, Artist ("Legion Of Super Heroes," "Noble Causes")
Re: Morrison vs. Ware: @royalboiler I do think Morrison would have more to argue with if he wasn't living in a batman house. I don't like Ware but he seems to aim for art.
-Brandon Graham, Writer/Artist ("King City," "Multiple Warheads")
@westonfront Going to see Batman Live this weekend with the kids. It could possibly be the best or the worst thing ever. Simultaneously.
-Chris Weston, Artist ("The Authority," "The Filth")
Alfred pt. 1: @GailSimone Also, I want a cave. It doesn't have to have a huge dinosaur. A little plastic one will do. And I want an Alfred. #anysexyalfred
-Gail Simone, Writer ("Birds of Prey," "Wonder Woman")
Alfred pt. 2: @JerryOrdway @GailSimone "When Master Bruce falls asleep, join me in the pantry.Bring the whip, Selena, I'll bring the creme fraiche. "#anysexyalfred
-Jerry Ordway, Writer/Artist ("Superman," "Hulk")
Alfred pt. 3: @GailSimone How do I keep my mustache so immaculate? Really, perhaps it's better if I just SHOW you, madam. #anysexyalfred
