The Best of the Week in Twitter – 08/04/2010

At least you're taking responsibility.

Bryan Lee O'Malley (@radiomaru) Suddenly keenly aware that many "Scott Pilgrim" film reviews will be of the "bam! pow! comics!" variety. I am so, so sorry.

Really beautiful, yet disturbing grasp of language here.

Ryan Stegman (@RyanStegman) The best way to describe Robert Crumb's crazy string-eating brother is to say that he has a rapist's twinkle in his eye.

I really wonder why. Like, a lot. Maybe it's a riddle.

David Lapham (@DavidALapham) Today, moreso than other days, chopping the heads off of dead fish sounds like fun.

He's just jealous he didn't go.

Ryan Stegman (@RyanStegman) Pen. Stab. Eye. I rest my case.

My kinda guy.

Eric Powell (@goonguy) Show me the way to go home… I'm tired and I wanna go to bed…

I'm not sure Gibbons ever made it home.  He'll be missed.

Dave Gibbons (@davegibbons90) Is that… banjo pickin' I hear? NNNOOooo!

They're not entirely sure what a joke is, Brian.

Brian Bendis (@BRIANMBENDIS) little convention tip for the emotionally disconnected- if someone says something & the audience laughs that indicates it was a joke.

No joke. It's just true. Also, makes for a terrible interview.

Gabriel Ba (@Gabriel_Ba) Never explain your work. Just work. It will say it all.

Just wanted to repeat it.

Jamie McKelvie (@McKelvie) Hey! Ever suggested a woman only got comics work because of who she’s sleeping with? Here’s a suggestion: go fuck yourself, you sexist shit.

He tweets things like this more often than you'd think.

Jimmy Palmiotti (@jpalmiotti) i got the whole staff at the gym in trouble today. I just couldnt find a damn towel…it turned into madness…lol

You can tell it's fiction, because those people actually want 3D TV.

Ryan Stegman (@RyanStegman) Watching the jetsons. George is watching a 3d television. This show is absurd.

I'd say like, 5, 6 tops.

Chris Ryall (@chris_ryall) There aren't many people in the 21st century who'd drive 90 miles to see Ratt and Dokken play, but I'm evidently one of them.

"Love to."

Ande Parks (@andeparks) You can't turn off Butch & Sundance. I don't care how many times you've seen it!

Some time later: regret.

Chris Ryall (@chris_ryall) The only person who was more bored than the lead singer at tonight's Ratt show was me. Not sure why I expected otherwise.

Finally someone stands up in defense of chaps-based redundant language!

Tony Moore (@tonymoore) it bugs me when people call them "assless chaps." If they had an ass in 'em, they'd be called pants.

You'd also say that Harrison Ford looks really good for being that old.

Phil Hester (@philhester) If Raiders had come out when I was 42 instead of 12 I would have been: Yeah, the action's nice, but what's Marion's character arc? Bleh.

Pretty clear message here.

CB Cebulski (@CBCebulski) No, no one from Marvel will be attending Wizard World Chicago in a few weeks.

It depends on the type of cookie.

Jimmy Palmiotti (@jpalmiotti) Girl in front of me eating a cookie like it's the last one on earth. What does she know?

It's because his editors were terrified to give him notes.

Fred Van Lente (@fredvanlente) Reading MEIN KAMPF for 1st time (research WW2 stuff) and can report that in addition to his many other faults, Hitler was a shitty writer.


  1. I had dreams about Nazis last night. i didn’t read Mein Kampf, but i did watch an episode on the notradamus effect about Hitler. PS, Nazi’s are only fun in Indiana Jones movies.

  2. You’ve never read a hell of a lot of comics with Nazis then, have you? Or Inglourious Basterds for that matter. Hellboy weeps.

  3. Nazis suck.*

    * Yes, I am a master of the understatement.

  4. Love this feature.  These creators crack me up.  Makes me glad I’m not on twitter…this way I avoid being that guy that’s always TRYING to be funny.

  5. @Josh, you’re right, Nazi’s are fun in other comics, and in IB, and in when your killing Nazi Zombies, or when family guy makes fun of hitler. man i need to think before i write.

  6. i think Jamie McKelvie has given us all the golden key into the industry…get out there and Fuck yourself !!!
