Hey Bros!

Welcome to Twitter in Focus where media comes to die.  Today’s contestant is the artist behind the Image comic, Chew, Rob Guillory.  If you haven’t read Chew, you should.  Let’s see what Rob’s been tweeting when he’s not drawing.


October 28th:  “Magic in fiction always feels like a cop-out to me. At least give me something plausible. Like Gamma Rays. Or being born with magnet hands.”

Or a face that shoots fire.  Because then the guy could be like, “What happened?  Did I hit anything?  I can’t see because of all the fire.”

October 28th:  “If I was Dr. Strange, I’d probably try plugging the Eye of Agamotto into a Game Genie cartridge at least once. Just to see what happens.”

Yeah, I could see that.

7 hours ago:  “Yesterday’s Internet: “MARVEL SO ANTI-DIVERSITY.” Today’s Internet: “MARVEL MADE MY PANTS WET WITH DIVERSITY.””

The next day’s Internet, “Diversity Marvel Diversity”.

7 hours ago:  “For the sake of fairness, I feel like the Inhumans movie has to be directed by an actual Inhuman. Michael Bay: YOU GOT THE JOB.”

The man just likes things awesome.

7 hours ago:  “I just want one line in the Black Panther movie where T’Challa talks about Wakanda’s sister nation, Zamunda. With an Arsenio Hall cameo.”

Wait, is Arsenio playing the Black Panther?  Oh, right, from Coming to America.

7 hours ago:  “I like when comics are part of a Multiverse, because it makes it easy for me not to buy them ever.”

But you’ll miss part 29 of 143!

6 hours ago:  “My favorite DC Multiverse is the one where all the superheroes are pies. Earth 3.14159.”

Mmm, delicious multiverse.

6 hours ago:  “Sony’s Projected Superhero Slate: 2016: SINISTER SIX 2017: FEELINGS OF REGRET ABOUT TOBEY MAGUIRE 2020: SELL SPIDERMAN TO MARVEL, DEAR LORD”

2022:  Stan Lee Cameo: The Movie!

Okay, let’s rate these tweets.  Rob is pretty funny and he certainly knows his comics.  I give him an 8 for Insanity, a 9 for Mustness and a 10 for Style.  That’s an overall score of 9.  Follow Rob and read Chew.
