Do you have burning questions for writer Brian K. Vaughan? Well, good news, because for most of the day today, he's taking over the Panel Syndicate Twitter account and answering people's questions. Just last week, Vaughan and artist Marcos Martin finished their 10-issue maxiseries The Private Eye that they offered under a "pay-as-you-like" model on the Panel Syndicate website. In addition to answering questions, Vaughan is talking about comics he likes, posting videos, and more.

Skullkickers and Wayward author Jim Zub launched a simple hashtag late on Wednesday that turned the comics Twittersphere into a museum of childhood memories, with fans and creators sharing '#fourcomics' that influenced them growing up.

For example, he used his Twitter account as a springboard for his new comic starring cats, All Ages.

Still, he doesn't seem to be the biggest fan of the way some users abuse the social media platform. At least not according to his new comic on The Talkhouse, in which he imagines a Twitter-style conversation between two cat people in a house.
