    it started, for me, with transmetropolitan, which was like a "hunter s. thompson in the future" kinda thing. then i got into nextwave: agents of h.a.t.e. and that was excellent.

    i hear he was gonna write a short novel or work on some tv show or something, i think the guy is a damn genius.

    Loved his Authority. Only thing i've got against him is the slowness of Planetary.

    Are you reading Black Summer? I think it's pretty good.

    Very good. The artist on Transmet has a great new series called The Boys.

    black summer is GREAT! i've generally enjoyed almost everything ellis has done. titles like planetary and nextwave are some of my personal favorites.

    Yeah, he wrote a novel Crooked Little Vein, that wasn't too bad. There were some minor elements that reminded me of Desolation Jones though. His work on Black Summer and Doktor Sleepless are good too. I haven't read Black Gas though (too many on my pull list), if I get a good recommendation on it, i'll check it out someday.

    Havent read any Black Summer or Doktor Sleepless yet but Ive loved almost everything hes touched. His run on Thunderbolts has been great. Im pumped for when he takes over Astonishing X-Men

    The Warren Ellis in Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds is pretty alright too.

    Warren Ellis' Bad World Tp...

    he takes myths, fables, stories, chain letters that hes read / seen on the internet, mail etc... and wrote a book about them. Probably one of the funniest things ive read in a while.

    cause you know, the internets is serious business
