Today(ish) in Twitter – February 1st, 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.

Jim Lee Ramen is the breakfast food of champions. My mom used to make it for me all the time.

Hope Larson This morning I’m making wardrobe decisions that will have to ride for the next 200-something pages.

Chris Eliopoulos RT @dailycartoonist: Bill Watterson grants first interview in decades (Neat!)

Marc Bernardin I am taking the wee lad to see The Tooth Fairy. I am doing my part to preserve Dwayne Johnson’s bankability. It’ll come in handy.

Paul Pope Working on a complicated cover image–I notice that in drawing, thinking and concentrating are not necessarily the same thing.

Bryan Lee O’Malley wow, i didn’t know “sad winter playground” was such a photography cliche. The things you learn searching for reference

Cullen Bunn Found a HC copy of X-MEN: THE ASGARDIAN WARS waiting for me when I got to work this morning. My childhood is rekindled!

Rachelle Goguen In case you missed it, Tiina recaps Strange Adventures’ first ever Ladies Night

Myke Norten Part of me is jealous I’m not part of Comic Twart But mostly I’m thankful I don’t have to compete with those guys! WOW

Hypergeek The A-Z of Canadian Comic Book Creators: B is for John Byrne #comics #Canada

Tony Moore Comedy Central should have Lewis Black, Jack Black, and Frank Black promoting historical awareness all February.

Brent Chittenden Rip Torn… the new Gary Busey

Fred Van Lente BTW, I am sick as a dog. But must somehow make the comics today otherwise I will fall hideously behind. Send me the good vibes, Interwebs! “Sick as a dog.” Interested to know derivation of that phrase. Why dogs? Why not “Sick as a gerbil”?

Gail Simone Hmm. I actually enjoyed the Tales From The Black Freighter animated film more than the Watchmen film. And I still hate women, dear.

Bryan Hitch New Marvel books: Immonen is our generations Garcia-Lopez: stunning draughtsman. Coipel is the new Alan Davis: best superhero artist today

Gail Simone Once again the Cowsills are ignored at the Emmys just because they have long been broken up and weren’t very good and were creepy.

dcumoviepage ‘White Collar’ Actor Recalls Brief Time As Brett Ratner’s Superman

Marc Ellerby There’s a new comic about kicking leaves and Los Campesinos! at

Bryan Lee O’Malley today: The mug is actually a Scott Pilgrim film prop that (strangely enough) doubles as a vessel for coffee-drinking.

Chris Weston Outer Space now belongs to the Chinese.

Rob Liefeld Pretty close to shutting the door on Extreme/Awesome catalogue. Time for all new ideas and stories. Last 10 years was restoring projects/characters I had created or been involved with. Youngblood, X-Force, Onslaught Reborn, Image, Deadpool. New era needs to be about moving forward. Lots of stuff that has been sitting inside the sketchbooks needs to come OUT!

Jim Lee For those who weren’t up late last nite…a piece I did for a friend running Naples Comic Con

Ryan Dunlavey Some of what I’m drawing today: Shakespeare, Odysseus, Commissioner Dolan, Ziggy, Bone and Firestar

Sean Phillips I’ve put a few copies of Incognito on amazon…


Tom Fowler spending a very unpleasant morning drawing screaming/crying child faces. 10 down, just 33 to go… then i get to draw them all over again

Dan Mcdaid Don’t want to jinx it, but I think there might be more Doctor Who in my future. Woop!

Rafael Albuquerque I like Doug Mahnke’s art a lot, but confess i used to like way more when he did Lobo vs Mask and Lobo vs Hitman.

Chip Kidd I Popped My Marvel Cherry, up on the site:

Chris Samnee Today’s blog sketch: MEDUSA vs SPIDER-MAN!!
