WAITING FOR TOMMY: WARREN ELLIS REMIXED
By Richard Johnston

MAliChoudhury-cactusmaac: I just finished reading Ruins and felt it was a bit atypical of your work. Not because the writing was sub-par or anything but because in all the stuff you've done that I've read (MOS, Planetary, Transmet, Authority) despite everything there is an undercurrent of optimism, joy and a hope for the future. Ruins was different because it was very, very bleak. Any particular reason why that was so? And how did the project come about in the first place? Finally it was pretty interesting to see the ideas that you've used elsewhere like prisons for freaks and undesirables, a mad Hulk that was locked away in a vault and Galactus floatig dead in space.
WARREN
: RUINS was a comedy.


TRANSMETROPOLITAN: TALES OF HUMAN WASTE TPB

It came about as an issue of WHAT IF?, originally, a quick swipe at MARVELS -- and then somehow EIC Tom DeFalco got to see it, re-commissioned it as a two-part series in the MARVELS format, and then resigned, laughing.

CAM STARR: I just read the last Transmet trade. GREAT ending, but I have a question. Even with Callahan gone, isn't the rest of the administration just as bad, such as the V.P.?
WARREN: Nixon's people were evil. But with Nixon gone, they had no cover. That was among the reasons to get rid of Nixon -- those fuckers couldn't work in the daylight.

AREFIN THE MACHINE: What is your take on the religion? Are you a religious person?
WARREN: I'm an atheist. In fact, I'm a Celebrity Atheist.

RICH: And while this thread continues, Warren popped up in a Lying In the Gutters thread at the same time and added a few notes of his own on the current state of the X-Men.

WARREN: Well, I have extensively researched this, using Bit Torrent to steal things. I mean using my credit card to give comics shops vast amounts of money. Really.

ASTONISHING X-MEN is by my good friends John Cassaday and Laura Martin and Joss Whedon whom I met once and is a really nice bloke. It has the X-Men in the pervert suits because the pervert suits will make people like them. Joss is adapting well to comics.

NEW X-MEN: PAEDO ACADEMY has minors in pervert suits, and soon Evil Professor X will turn up to give them psychic orgasms and make them sit in his lap.

OLD X-MEN is by Chris Claremont and Alan Davis who have come to show the young people that all their music is crap and what you really need is a bit of Mantovani or perhaps some skiffle because it's got a good beat.

OTHER X-MEN is by poor old Chuck Austen who never hurt nobody and who used to do a comic called STRIP which was a funny porno comic for teenagers. And it's got all the shitey X-Men characters that no-one else wanted.

RICH: See everyone? You feel sorry for him now don't you?

Warren Ellis writes Ultimate Fantastic Four, Ultimate Nightmare, Global Frequency, Planetary and has about three hundred new comics about to hit. Find him every day at Die Puny Humans and occasionally at Millarworld . Rich Johnston steals things every week for Lying In Then Gutters http://litg.comicbookresources.com. Thanks to all the fine folk from Millarworld who've had their work plundered without care or attention for this emergency capsule.
