George Lucas' Star Wars Changes And Project Pitches In Today's Twitter Report

Star WarsIf anyone can sympathize with George Lucas amid all of the criticism he's recently received over the new Star Wars Blu-ray changes, it's comic book creators. Ron Marz and Eric Canete both came to the franchise founder's defense with some stern words today.

On a much more serious note, creators have been banding together to raise money to help cartoonist Dylan Williams, who's currently battling cancer. If you want to help out, you could do a lot worse than picking up the Batwoman artwork that Steve Lieber put up on eBay. Check out a link to that, pressing questions and a proposed casting choice for a "Stronium Dog" movie.

@westonfront If they ever did a film of "Portrait of a Mutant", Paul Dano would make a good Young Johnny Alpha.

@maguirekevin I just watched a blu-ray of X-Men-First Class. Why hasn't Fox announced a sequel to this OR Rise of the Planet Of The Apes yet? Seriously.
