In other subjects, the art was strong with the last day’s worth of tweeting. Ben Templesmith claims a Batman sketch he posted was painted in beer, which in addition to the fact that it’s a Ben Templesmith Batman sketch makes the piece mighty rad. Check out a link to the big picture and Robert Kirkman’s love for the CGI Yoda replacement that’s coming to the new “Star Wars: Episode I” Blu-ray discs. It’s all in the highlight reel below.

@MrAdamFreeman Steve Jobs. iQuit. Didn’t write that joke, but love it.
-Adam Freeman, Writer (“Dark X-Men: The Beginning,” “The Highwaymen”)
@badmachinery Woke up to all the Steve Jobs chatter. First thought: “he’s dead”. Second thought: “he’s decided to put on a belt for the first time ever”.
-John Allison, Writer/Artist (“Bad Machinery,” “Scary Go Round”)
@rstevens Fun fact: The iPhone is a failure. Its original mandate was to put millions of networked cameras in the wild to prove the existence of UFOs.
-R. Stevens, Writer/Artist (“Diesel Sweeties,” “LOLbots”)
@RobertKirkman News of a CGI Yoda in Phantom Menace has me stoked. I love all Star Wars… Even the not so great ones. I buy every damn release.
-Robert Kirkman, Writer (“Invincible,” “Walking Dead”)
“Game of Thrones” pt. 1: @GWillowWilson Cersei is the only fictional char I’ve spent energy hating. Yet in TV series she’s resigned and weary instead of grasping and evil.
-G. Willow Wilson, Writer (“Air,” “Vixen: Return of the Lion”)
“Game of Thrones” pt. 2: @brubaker @GWillowWilson And really really hot.
-Ed Brubaker, Writer (“Captain America,” “Criminal”)
“Game of Thrones” pt. 3: @brubaker @GWillowWilson Sorry, I just love Lena Heady.
@BRIANMBENDIS in five years we will not recognize the comics industry, but the stories will still be told by caring, gifted artists
-Brian Michael Bendis, Writer (“New Avengers,” “Ultimate Spider-Man”)
