No matter which comics faces you may have been following on Twitter this weekend, they were most likely watching the World Series, "V" on SyFy, "Mad Men" or all of the above. Dan Slott and Frank Tieri fell into the first camp, and it seemed like most of the Marvel office was pulling for Alex Rodriguez to earn his salary when he stepped up to the plate. A-Rod's game-winning double was matched in tweets by Yankee's fans only by Johnny Damon's double-base steal.
Meanwhile, the SyFy "V" marathon had Ben Templesmith and Brian Reed's attention. Evidently comic book people like TV shows about alien invasions. Go figure. Check out what they had to say, as well as who was watching "Mad Men," and what Stan Lee had to complain about on Halloween.
It's all after the jump in the Twitter Report for November 2, 2009.
@smilinstanlee Halloween was fun but I resented people looking at me, saying Wow! and asking what kind of mask I was wearing-- because I wasn't wearing one
-Stan Lee, Writer ("The Amazing Spider-Man," "Ravage 2099")
@FrankTieri Congrats, Johnny Damon. You just assured your Yankee contract for next year.
-Frank Tieri, Writer ("Wolverine," "Iron Man")
"V" pt 1: @BrianReed SyFy Channel. Original miniseries of V. On now. 1983 in all its glory. Line of dialog of the series: "Oh, those damn scientists!"
-Brian Reed, Writer ("Ms. Marvel," "Secret Invasion: Front Line")
"V" pt 2: @Templesmith yeah, I'm watching the Original V series in a marathon. Never seen it. Got to freaked out as a kid when the skin starts coming off.
-Ben Templesmith, Writer/Artist ("30 Days of Night," "Welcome to Hoxford")
Norman Rockwell pt 1: @seanpphillips @jock4twenty Got that Rockwell book today. Very interesting, especially the lengths other people went to help him including Nasa and the gov
-Sean Phillips, Artist ("Marvel Zombies," "Criminal")
Norman Rockwell pt 2: @kodychamberlain @seanpphillips I picked up the new Rockwell book too. Very good detail on his photo process but I wish they had included more sketches.
-Kody Chamberlain, Artist ("Shang-Chi: Master of Kung Fu," "Punks")
@neilkleid MAD MEN really went the extra mile tonight to let you know that after JFK, everything just went to hell

Parting Wisdom for the Day:
@DanSlott World Series head-scratcher: Before the National Anthem, the announcer asked everyone to remove their hats... and then the singer didn't. 😕
-Dan Slott, Writer ("The Amazing Spider-Man," "Avengers: The Initiative")
