I'm not actually a huge fan of Warren Ellis's work, but, that's also not that fair to say because I haven't read a ton of it. I just know I've read some and not been so engaged in them that I looked up more. I have, and read, this because I got it very cheap from someone who was selling a very large collection of comics and this one was in the mix. He must've been a big fan of Warren Ellis.

Just so nobody buys this thinking it's a comic book - Amazon has mislabelled this a "graphic novel" - it is in fact simply the prose writings of Warren Ellis. Specifically it's ideas and storylines that never (yet) got made. Some are ok but mostly you see why they never got developed further. Not a comic book then, only for those wishing to read scores of prose writings. For those looking for the comic book magic of Ellis, try elsewhere.

Recommends it for: Any comic book fan!
If you read comic books at all you owe it to yourself to go out and grab this in order to better understand the genre and to help you on your own way to becoming a graphic novel scribe. Good luck!
