Today(ish) in Twitter – October 19th, 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.

Hope Larson Let’s see if we can turn this Monday morning from shit to THE shit.

Andy Belanger Just got my Halloween costume yesterday and realized superheros wear jocks for a reason! you see everything!

Andy Belanger Drawing like crazy today check out BofA, and My buddies doing High Moon

Gail Simone If Dan Slott and I were an Amalgam Comics character, we’d be Dail Slomone. And there would also be Brant Bendorrison.

Paul Pope Long and inscruitably boring dream of the various mundane steps of shaving, then waiting forever to use an ATM. Seemed to go on for ages.

Sean Phillips Zombie Goliath

John Reppion anyone else noticed there are a fair few “antique” vampire hunting kits about these days?


Karl Kerschl My new neighbourhood is full of cats. I love it. Especially the ones that hang around my door. This is not sarcasm.

James Urbaniak Is the media saying that Balloon Dad was “full of hot air” yet?

Gail Simone I don’t know why @gerryconway hates humanity. I don’t like to gossip but I saw him kiss the devil on the lips.

Chris Eliopoulos Sometimes I feel like a fireman who rushes into a blazing building, saves the entire family only to hear them complain I took too long.

Agent M RT @damiella: Hollywood film stars banned from Twitter: [hmm.]

Dan Slott In my usual spot but on a different computer. Feels strange. Do musicians feel this way if they have to play with different instruments?

Andy Diggle SCARY. The Soviets really did build a Dr Strangelove-style Doomsday Machine, and it was called Perimeter:

Steve Niles True story. I head-butted masuimi max. I’m an idiot.

Gail Simone What I want is a Magic Bullet where the blade stays stationary and the universe rotates around it at great speed.

Ramon Perez @cameronmstewart passing through on the way to spain – all i’m seeing is the train station!

Paul Cornell is off to London for a meeting today. And then hopefully some comics shopping. Why is it dark outside? Is it the end of the world?

DanSlott Yay. Since the computer meltdown, I’ve now rebuilt some of my files to where they were on Friday. Y’know that “I’m a PC, I’m a Mac” ad? In my world, the Mac-guy is mentally defective, lost stuff I gave him to hold on to, and I want to punch him in his cool-slacker face.

Dean Trippe Just read Adventure Comics #3. You guys, @geoffjohns0 and @francismanapul are making the comics I love to read. Tim + Conner = RADTIMES.

BillWillingham And examination of @marjoriemliu ‘s four rules of writing can be found at the Clockwork blog:

Frank Tieri apparently satan made my football teams pay today for my yankees win yesterday.

Stan Lee Didja know Marvel is prepping an Ant Man movie? Guess I’d have to lose a lotta weight (and size) for a cameo in that one!

Dennis Calero I just got two compliments on a row for my anti Che t shirt. Che sucks and your tshirt is not cool

Matt Fraction sitting next to a guy that vibes “biggest prick in the universe.” like Locke’s-Dad-on-LOST superprick.

Geoff Johns Best night EVER. Last night was sweet because 1) I won the Scream Award for best comic book writer, introduced by Dave Navarro and Eliza Dushku. 2) Hung out with great people including @chris_ryall , Dan Didio, Johnny Galecki, Kaley Cuoco & Kual Nayyar (of THE BIG BANG THEORY). 3) Met Woody Harrelson and talked Zombieland, and 4) Went to an after part in a cemetery and they had a massive dessert spread with “gourmet” Hostess cupcakes and snowballs.

James Robinson @Geoff Johns Wow. Congrats, buddy. I’m so proud of what you and your amazing talent has achieved. What a trajectory you’re on.

Cameron Stewart oh my god, this is one of the worst hangovers of my life.

Stan Lee I’ve noticed really big stars, like Johnny Depp, Harrison Ford and Toby McGuire are great guys– easy to talk to and be with. Not like me.

Beaucoup Kevin SHUT UP, NERDS: “This episode is okay. It still, however, doesn’t give an explanation to why Music Meister’s voice can control people.”

Jim Lee When ppl ask me what books I want to draw,am surprised when i say JLA,LSH,JSA ppl think thats my next book. Arent these all bks most DC artists want to draw at some point in their career?

Fred Van Lente Best thing about COMIC BOOK COMICS #4? It’s full of my three favorite things to make fun of: super heroes, hippies and Nazis.

Brian Wood Just read LUNA PARK… staggering book, one of the best gn’s I’ve read, high lvl of excellence all round Worth the price even before you open it. Gorgeous production, Zezelj + Dave Stewart = stunning art. Love love love this.
