Today(ish) in Twitter – Friday December 18th
Today(ish) in Twitter is a regular column wherein our staff troll through the best of the 140 letter updates of the comic book world. ComicBookDaily is not responsible for the content of these tweets, but we will admit to laughing our collective bums off at some of them.
Bryan Lee O’Malley I want to bitch about something inconsequential on twitter but i don’t feeeeeeeeeeel like it
Faith Erin Hicks Nerd potluck tonight! Nerd potlucks are the best. Nobody knows how to cook, so we just eat a lot of mashed potatos & pass out drunk. (And by “drunk” I mean, “insanely full of mashed potatoes.”)
Eric Trautmann I have decided I need to start a band called JAX-UR’S SCIENCE MURDER. We play music. Then we enslave you monkey-born primitives.
Paul Tobin I am wonderfully busy tonight, with old projects and new.
Michael Ian Black Hearing a rumor that next year there’s going to be a movie not based on a comic book.

Ed Brubaker I’ll just say, for all those complaining about Reborn 6 being spoiled, there’s a ton of stuff in that issue that isn’t even hinted at so far
Brian Michael Bendis Off to la for a 1 day in and out. I’ll tell u why after it happens.
Erik Larsen In 1969 Neal Adams came over to Marvel and pencilled and colored the X-Men, which was on the verge of cancellation. Neal’s coloring was state of the art at that time–well-chosen but flat colors using a limited palette in percentages of 25, 50 and 100%. Years later, when painted color was all the rage, Neal’s X-Men were collected and re-colored using the improved technology. They looked awful. Later still, with more technological advances, Neal’s X-Men were re-colored and collected again with Photoshop effects. Again–looking awful. Eventually Marvel collected Neal’s X-Men in their Marvel Masterwork line and its original color was restored. It looks fantastic.
