Warren Ellis fans: what should I read by him? I loved Transmetropolitan, but I’ve been pretty disappointed by every other Ellis I’ve looked at. Freakangels seems to have nothing unexpected in it; Global Frequency was cardboard characters rushing through repeated “race against time, then a big gunfight” plots. Crooked Little Vein: I plannd to buy it, but standing in the bookshop, flicking through pages of wooden, cliched text, I abandoned the idea.
Has Ellis done anything as good as Transmetropolitan? Or, while I’m at it, are there other comics so blisteringly fantastic that I should dump Ellis and go read them instead?
Also, guys: witch-hunts are bad, mmkay?
