The Hardest Working Man in Comics

The genius of Warren Ellis is undeniable, not the musician, I mean the writer responsible for such gems as Transmetropolitan, Global Frequency, StormWatch, Strange Killings, and Nextwave : agents of H.A.T.E. This is only a small sampling of his works but all of them contain elements that make Ellis so great.
An acerbic wit, matched with a genuine way with words and a unique view of the world all combine to make Ellis a writer worth following.
But beyond his work in comics he has many other strings to his bow. As Ellis states on his Myspace page he writes "comics, novels, journalism, videogames, screenplays and television". It is well worth visiting his page and having a look at all the things Ellis does. I have provided a link so that you can do just that. On there you will find Ellis's blog, and this is always worth reading. You can also visit as well, and see more things he does.
Ellis also writes a regular column for SFX magazine and various other organisations. The man is very busy.
Go out and read something by Ellis and discover someone in this poll-driven world who is not afraid to speak his mind.
