Well-known protest signs from the Westboro Baptist Church arrived at San Diego Comic-Con this week, and both Gail Simone and Ben Templesmith reacted to their anti-SDCC messages via Twitter. If debauchery was on on their list of gripes, they probably needed to look no further than the G4 party, which Nathan Fillion was keeping an eye on.
Elsewhere, Jon Favreau was still gearing up for his Comic-Con arrival, and it sounds like he's going to be tired. Find out why after the jump alongside a spiffy Olivier Coipel Red Sonja sketch and a look at Dan Slott taking a video game break.

Westoboro pt. 2: @GailSimone Bender said into the megaphone, "Westboro Baptist Church, BITE MY SHINY METAL A--!" It was THE KING OF AWESOME MOMENTS.
-Gail Simone, Writer ("Birds of Prey," "Wonder Woman")
@Jon_Favreau Shooting nights. Flying out to #SDCC after wrap tomorrow morning. The adrenaline from Hall H should wake me up.
-Jon Favreau, Director ("Iron Man 2," "Cowboys and Aliens")
@McKelvie I think this is the year we stop pretending sdcc is about comics anymore. Comics areas so quiet compared to movie aisles.
-Jamie McKelvie, Artist ("Suburban Glamour," "Phonogram")
@BrianLynch A wee bit drunk at #sdcc. Not full-on "think you're going home with She-Hulk, waking up with RED Hulk" but getting there. #holyshitwhat?
-Brian Lynch, Writer ("Angel: After the Fall," "Monkey Man Unleashed")
