Kanye West was the talk of Twitter last night at the VMAs for his un-prompted interruption of Taylor Swift's acceptance speech, and some of comics' biggest names were among those sounding off. If you're interested in a quick rundown of what Mark Waid, Brian Michael Bendis and several others posted. Look no further than the Twitter Report.
And even if you're not, you can still read on to find out which writer is scheduling his week around the release of "Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2," what happened after Phil Hester announced he was open to reading other people's scripts and which new projects Steve Niles is excited about.
It's all in the Twitter Report for September 14, 2009.
@MarkWaid It's oddly relaxing to realize that Kanye just set a bar for douchebaggery that, for the rest of my life, I could not reach if I TRIED.
-Mark Waid, Writer/Editor ("Kingdom Come," "Potter's Field")
@skottieyoung I'm not sure about you all, but I'm fairly certain Pink could kill the f out of Kanye West.
-Skottie Young, Artist ("New X-Men," "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz")
@BRIANMBENDIS what do you think the noise in kanye's head that drove him insane sounds like? is it a throbbing sound or a dull roar or a high pitch?
-Brian Michael Bendis, Writer ("New Avengers," "Ultimate Spider-Man")
@ScottAllie Not saying what Kanye did was cool, I just don't get the outcry. His arrogance is more funny than upsetting.
-Scott Allie, Writer/Editor ("Hellboy," "Solomon Kane")
@Jerwa (2/2) And I'll publicly admit that I genuinely admire Lady Gaga for her clear desire to incite and test the conventions of the pop world.
-Brandon Jerwa, Writer ("Highlander," "Battlestar Galactica")
@rstevens Even Bin Laden has to pre-record his messages so Kanye doesn't interrupt.
-R. Stevens, Writer/Artist ("Diesel Sweeties")
@SteveNiles Can't wait to announce new slate of projects for Wildstorm and IDW. Fun projects. Amazing artists. Gonna be a fun next couple of years.
-Steve Niles, Writer ("30 Days of Night," "Criminal Macabre")
@philhester Elapsed time from me joking about being willing to read "your f---ing script" to receiving a script in my inbox: 36 hours.
-Phil Hester, Writer/Artist ("Green Arrow," "The Irredeemable Ant-Man")
@DavidGallaher Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 drops tomorrow, which means I should probably do all of my work for the week today?
-David Gallaher, Writer ("High Moon")
Parting Wisdom for the Day:
@MKupperman What the hell is wrong with the NY subway? Their new slogan should be "We'll show you how little we care."
-Michael Kupperman, Writer/Artist ("Tales Designed to Thrizzle")
