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.

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.
I thought that this book was very interesting and had a lot of entertainment to me and my fellow friends. I hope you guys will enjoy it because it was amazing to me, and hopefully you too. Thank you!!! :0)
