Rob Liefeld Vs Batman's Scott Snyder: Twitter Wars Wage!

Continuing where we left off from last night with Rob Liefeld v. Tom Brevoort, we know have an exchange between Rob and Batman writer Scott Snyder.

It it has gotten so heated - maybe even dirty(?) - that Rob has posted some Twitter direct messages between the two.

I gather it's about sales and that Batman sells well because it's "Batman" — with Snyder saying that's not so, it's because of himself and artist Greg Capullo.

Of course, Rob then brings up Haunt and Swamp Thing.

Read on...

It's not you. It never has been. It's Batman.

From Scott Snyder - I can assure you batman doesn't sell the way it does because it's Batman. It sells that way because of me and Greg.

Get over yourself you pretentious prick 

From Scott Snyder - I can assure you batman doesn't sell the way it does because it's Batman. It sells that way because of me and Greg.

Been berated in DM's by  this morning. Excuse me if I don't marvel at your amazing abilities to write Batman. Piss off.

I'd like to think that if your going to wave your ego around on Batman you'd remember all that came before you. Holeee crap

Average Batman book sells 80k. 'Nuff said.

So let me re-iterate again, it's BATMAN.

one word, HAUNT. 2 words SWAMP THING - not all creations equal   

never the issue  Never attacked the work. Was berated in DM's. Shocked at the bravado on Batman.

Batman is the number one selling character in the history of the biz. Period. End of story. Will endure beyond creator careers.

It's Batman.

[Then Rob posted the following DMs:]
