Opinions on what DC’s relaunched titles will accomplish varied. A couple of takes, along with Edgar Wright’s “Game of Thrones” discovery and info about a “Powers” pilot cut you can’t see unless you’re at Brian Michael Bendis’ house made the rundown today.
I’m @brianwarmoth, and this is the Twitter Report for August 31, 2011.
“Powers” pt. 1: @BRIANMBENDIS @Oeming got the new powers cut. come over!
-Brian Michael Bendis, Writer (“Ultimate Spider-Man,” “New Avengers”)
“Powers” pt. 2: @Oeming @BRIANMBENDIS what’s that? A new cut of the Powers pilot? Hells yea! After I get a new back though #powersFX
-Mike Oeming, Writer/Artist (“Powers,” “The Mice Templar”)
@edgarwright Late to the party, but thoroughly enjoying ’Game Of Thrones’. No one told me the 1st ep was directed by the lead bully from ’Class Of 1984’!
-Edgar Wright, Director (“Scott Pilgrim vs. The World,” “Shaun of the Dead”)
@marcbernardin I was so underwhelmed by LA Noire, I’m replaying Red Dead Redemption. And 30 minutes in, it reminds me just how superior it is.
-Marc Bernardin, Writer (“The Authority,” “The Highwaymen”)
DC relaunch pt. 1: @MrAdamFreeman I bet most publishers see a bump in sales just from the new foot traffic coming in LCS. Bitch, bitch, bitch. Relaunch is good for everyone.
-Adam Freeman, Writer (“Dark X-Men: The Beginning,” “The Highwaymen”)
DC relaunch pt. 2: @JimLee 18 hrs from the start of our 1st radio interv today2the last comic signed at @MidtownComics -@GeoffJohns0 & I r done:D twitpic.com/6dvdx3
-Jim Lee, Artist (“Batman,” “X-Men”)
DC relaunch pt. 3: @dan_goldman Still wincing whenever I see “The New 52” tagline; WTF is that supposed to mean to a first-time reader?
-Dan Goldman, Writer/Artist (“Shooting War,” “08: A Graphic Diary of the Campaign Trail”)
@jonrog1 Just … let’s not pretend “comics won’t be around” b/c of piracy. If comics “die” per se, corporate decisions over decades made it happen.
-John Rogers, Writer (“Blue Beetle,” “Zombie Tales”)
