Today(ish) in Twitter – Wednesday November 25th, 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.

Just to let you know the guys over at iFanboy have put together the ULTIMATE TWITTER LIST! Definitely recommend checking it out.

On a special note – a very happy 57th birthday to my father Tod DeCourcy. Hope you’re having a decent one.

Karl Kerschl Whenever I get asked for a Green Lantern sketch, I try to do something like this:

Geoff Johns If you buy GL #48 and Blackest Night #5 today, read them in that order. Now with 300% more Larfleeze.

Fred Van Lente God damn. That is without a doubt the most incredibly violent comic book script I’ve ever written.

Andy B @Willow Dawson Yeah I know, I see you there quietly judging me! when you go to starbucks I might drop a stinker on your chair.I’ve been dying to engage in Immortal Battle with that effing Laser eyed prick all day. I eat Robots for breakfast even though it’s lunch.

Dean Trippe You know what, guys? I was wrong about landmines. If the President likes ’em, so do I.

Todd Nauck Spider-Man: Clone Saga#3 is out today. PeterParker+BenReilly+Kaine+TheJackal x Clones=MAYHEM!

Ed Brubaker Don’t forget it’s new comics day. Read your comics while being thankful for the print industry.

Rob Liefeld On a completely different note, whatever your beliefs are, please pray for our family friend Brielle, 11, who is fighting for her life. Brielle is battling cancer and undergoing stem cel treatments and is not doing well. Please pray…

Geoff Johns I am thankful for slurpees, Barry Allen, Pringles, Ryan Sook, Christmas Trees and California weather. I am not thankful that there is not a comic book story within an hour of Palm Springs.

Hope Larson Congrats to K. Monnin on her new book, Teaching Graphic Novels: Practical Strategies for the Secondary ELA Classroom!

Mike Hawthorne Know what I hate? People showing up at the house in the middle of a day cause THEY have the day off, then telling me I should get a real job.

Jonathan Hickman While I would never write a cross-company Aquaman/Galactus story, I would write a Galactus/Legion book tomorrow. For free. In my underwear.


Ron Marz If you want to spread the comics gospel, hand people “Bone” or “LOEG” or “Criminal” — something they might like, not something YOU like.

Andy Diggle So who else has had Bohemian Rhapsody stuck in their head all day? Bloody Muppets.

Chris Ryall Evidently Jimmy Fallon told some monologue joke about our Transformers comic & Optimus Prime quitting. Anyone catch it? Was it a good joke?

Dave Gibbons Moebius on a Cintiq!

Warren Ellis Americans are starting to wish me a happy Thanksgiving, so now I’m going to sign off before it triggers some appalling rant.

Jim Lee Not sure if I ever posted this sketch I did a while back…too many diff tweet pic depository sites heh Last one–Batgirl rough…not sure what this was for. Never finished. G’nite ppls

Paul Pope You know what song I can barely stand to listen to I love it so much? Roberta Flack’s “First Time Ever I Saw Your Face”. Incredible sounds.

Vertigo Comics Vertigo: Graphic Content – From The Editor’s Desk: Karen Berger:

Paul Cornell Wonders if anyone near Northampton can help Matt Smith help a friend: Already, new Doctor being awesome. Pass it on.

Evan Dorkin Hey, Grant Morrison fans – The Lawgiver’s selling the ultra-rare Zenith books 1, 2, & 3 1st editions on eBay:

Frank Tieri Ok, so the last 2 episodes of V have been better… and now the show’s not back until MARCH?! Way to kill any momentum you might’ve had ABC.

Chris Samnee Today’s blog sketch, as suggested by @DocShaner: KID FLASH!

Kate Beaton Toronto! I missed you, and you’ve greeted me with a forecast full of rain? Man, I thought the prodigal son got the fatted calf.

Faith Erin Hicks I thought to myself: “It’d be nice to spend some time drawing tonight,” then realized that’s what I’ve been doing all day. I don’t know why I keep forgetting that. It’s weird. I’m still struggling with fun drawing vs. work drawing and why the two are different.
