A little intermittent, but anyone who enjoys Warren Ellis' stuff should be used to this by now. He's now slow, I think he just has a major case of ADD. Randomly puts projects on hold to work on others, jumping back and forth when he feels like it.
Fell is a noir/crime book, and probably the best one I've read.
"The comic is an experiment by Ellis in order to create a more affordable comic by producing a lower page count than normal. This is balanced by a nine panel grid format for each page, in order to compress the story into the smaller size." This is brillaint and I didn't even notice the page count until after.
Seemed pretty good. Is it all short stories like that?

Not a fan of his Stormwatch/Authority stuff, or NextWave? The later was the overlooked title of the year for me.
Nextwave was a pure piece of shit to me... if X-51 (Machine Man) needed to become a drunken robot, then he should have written the book with Bender in it. And while he may have been a C-lister hero, some people liked him and that was completely out of character for him... and Ellis just pisses on past continuity so he can tell "his" story and inflate his already massive ego.
Nextwave was second place in the "don't buy it unless you love shit" title of 2006 for me... a close second to Kevin Smith's needless three year delay of "The Evil that Men do".
"It's disturbing when young people believe right-wing political hype. It's like rock n' roll never happened."
Not a fan of Kevin Smith's comics, so yeah, he's a douche.
Loved Nextwave, but I honestly don't care for continuity all that much. Big fan of X-Force/New Mutants, and did find he overplayed Tabitha as the dumb blonde, but in the end, it made me laugh, and gave me a good satirical team book that I could easily not put into marvel canon if it mattered to me :-P
