World news, TV events and movies took a back seat in Comics Twitterverse discussions this morning, thanks to Wacom's new Inkling device that keeps track of paper doodles and transfers them to digital files. It was definitely the hot topic of the last few hours.
Meanwhile, the most movie-relevant comment of the day came from Eric Powell. For those of you still itching with excitement about the "Goon" movie, it sounds like you've still got plenty of waiting left to do. His quick update and more made the retweet list down below.
I'm @brianwarmoth, and this is the Twitter Report for August 30, 2011.
@goonguy “@popculturecube: When is The Goon movie coming out? I saw the trailer & am psyched!” You have a while to wait.
-Eric Powell, Writer/Artist ("The Goon," "Action Comics")
@bradmeltzer After filming Decoded, ran to son's basketball little league. No other coach wore more makeup than me.
-Brad Meltzer, Writer ("Identity Crisis," "Justice League of America")
@PiaGuerra Latest Torchwood: more standing around talking. Gwen spends even more time on a plane. Pullman is creepy. Oven this, oven that.
-Pia Guerra, Artist ("Y: The Last Man," "Doctor Who: The Forgotten")
Inkling pt. 1: @jock4twenty I think I chuck around too much ink when i sketch for the #inkling to be 100% useful. Love that it's vector graphics tho
-Jock, Artist ("The Losers," "Green Arrow: Year One")
Inkling pt. 2: @McKelvie Can't really see the Inkling being useful for me, as fancy as the tecnology is.
-Jamie McKelvie, Artist ("Phonogram," "Siege: Loki")
Inkling pt. 3: @cameronMstewart The Wacom Inkling is pretty interesting. I don't know if I would use it as much as I'd like but I'll try it.
-Cameron Stewart, Writer/Artist ("Batman and Robin," "Sin Titulo")
Inkling pt. 4: @Michael_Cho Yeah, the new wacom thing is interesting. I'm not sold, but it looks like a fun thing.
-Michael Cho, Artist ("X-Men: First Class," "The Age of the Sentry")
Inkling pt. 5: @Rob_guillory Dunno if I'll buy the Wacom Inkling, because I dunno if it's really necessary. May just over-complicate the process for me.
-Rob Guillory, Artist ("Chew")
@Templesmith Just realized that with that pen I could potentially store my convention sketches. Too bad it's not about paint as well.
-Ben Templesmith, Writer/Artist ("30 Days of Night," "Welcome to Hoxford")
