Today(ish) in Twitter – October 2nd, 2009

twitterToday(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.

Joe Quesada Just got off the phone with Mark Millar. I’m always scared when he begins giggling like a school girl mixed with a mad super villain.

Joe Quesada And yes, he is concocting something so amazing, that now I need to call someone or I’ll burst. Oh wait, I’m sworn to secrecy.

Paul Pope According to the book Ad Land, KFC’s famous Col. Saunders never got past Private in WW2.

James Robinson In my overwhelming passion for hard-boiled egg and anchovy sandwiches, I almost burned the place down.

Jock speaking of destruction, I’m drawing quite a few heads being blown off today. Dredd’s not happy

Skottie Young Well, sadly OZ is no longer 9 on the New York Times Best Seller List…IT’S NUMBER 3 M’ FERS! Thanks for all the support and reviews!

Stephen Wacker It’s creepy stuff but I have had severe hugs with creators who work for me on Amazing Spider-Man.

Bryan Lee O’Malley drinking my espresso out of like a giant soup-bowl mug, because all our regular mugs are dirty, because cartoonists visited yesterday.

Dan Slott Sometimes being a writer is EASY. It takes little-to-no effort to type “We pull back to a large crowd scene.” In the same space…

Dan Slott …you could’ve typed, “Move in on a tight close up of the character’s eyes.” But, boy, does that change a day-in-the-life of your artist!

Dan Slott Got a LOVELY piece of art for a book today. HUGE crowd shot! BEAUTIFULLY done, lots of detail. And my first thought was, “I’m such a jerk!”

CB Cebulski Note to artist’s agent: “Going forward I would recommend he sticks to a grid, no more crazy panel layouts, & also includes panel borders.”

CBCebulski “Many pencilers thinks it’s “boring”, I know, but clean storytelling is the best way to impress an editor and get work.”

Brian Wood frantically cleaning my office before writer from Nordic Reach magazine shows up.

David Lafuente FLU + DEADLINE + MOVING OUT + BROKEN HEATING = FUN

Andy Diggle What would happen if a zombie, a werewolf and a vampire all bit each other simultaneously?

Andy Diggle That’s not my story idea, btw. My story idea is GOOD.

Brian Michael Bendis after Scorsese backed Polanski I wasn’t in the mood for letterman to bum me out.

Jonathan Hickman Wait, The Jesus and Mary Chain’s 21 SINGLES – that’s 21 singles – is 9.99 on iTunes. Why would anyone not have this?

Cameron Stewart There is nothing worse than working on something, feeling like you’ve done a bad job, but not having time to correct it.

Cameron Stewart Obviously there are lots of worse things than that, but I like hyperbole.

Bryan Lee O’Malley 1. there’s still no release date for the movie but of course we want to have the book out first. That’s the goal.

Bryan Lee O’Malley 2. I haven’t broken down a pagecount yet (need one more quick rewrite) but I expect it will be the longest of the series, at least by a bit

Bryan Lee O’Malley 3. I promise the book will be better than the movie adaptation in every possible way and if there’s a tie it will be settled with fisticuffs

Gail Simone I think, of all the sexual offenders with b.o. who write comics, my favorite is @brian reed but only because he REALLY commits to the b.o.

Hope Larson MERCURY got a starred review in Booklist! So happy I could cry.

Brian Reed Somehow or other, this turned into a day off. I wish I’d known I wasn’t going to accomplish anything. I would have enjoyed it more.

Brian Wood I think Leo Fernandez drew a Viking Age Batman into one of these Northlanders pages. Nice cowl!
