    Warren Ellis Not Working On New Comic Projects Anymore This Year

    In a very odd, ominous, and slightly upsetting post, Warren Ellis revealed simply:

    There’ll be no more new comics projects from me in 2010.

    Wow, that’s a weird thing to type.

    What has caused this? Unknown. What does this exactly mean? Also not necessarily sure. Though, for the record, I am not implying that there is anything bad going on in the Ellis world that would cause him not to do new projects. I should also mention we’re still waiting on some work from Ellis, such as the lost issues of Astonishing X-Men, the new Xenogensis mini, the books that he collaborates on (Wolfskin and Gravel) as well as Supergod and Captain Swing – not to mention the weekly FreakAngels webcomic. Will he still be finishing up any book currently out? I’d hope and imagine so. But for the time being, I suppose we can’t expect any new fun and zany comics from one of the medium’s greatest contributors.

    I suppose now, if any, would be a great time to go back and read or re-read his epic library of amazing contributions to comics as there are still six months left in this year. Transmetropolitan, The Authority/Stormwatch, Planetary, Nextwave, No Hero – time to get reading, folks.

    Once upon a time, Matthew Meylikhov became the Founder and Editor-in-Chief of Multiversity Comics, where he was known for his beard and fondness for cats. Then he became only one of those things. Now, if you listen really carefully at night, you may still hear from whispers on the wind a faint voice saying, "X-Men Origins: Wolverine is not as bad as everyone says it issss."
