[Comics] I am a reformed X-Men fan. I have not picked up a copy of this comic since the early ’90’s and my peak X-Men reading year was probably 1988-89. That was until last week… when I picked up an issue of Generation-X scripted by Warren Ellis. Here’s a trailer for the X-Men film which comes out this summer. I don’t want to be a born again X-Fan. I’m nearly thirty…. I’m too old for this shit….

[Comics] New “Come In Alone” column by Warren Ellis in CBR. “Comics are plain, conservative, old-looking objects. And this sacred bloody ugliness bores into the brains of people immersed in the culture too long, until they see nothing wrong with it.”

[quote] “I really do think that the battlelines have been drawn. I want to see comics as a pop medium, I want to see the Forbidden Planet empire reaching out to every city in the world like McDonald’s. I want to see comic creators and retailers in Vogue and on telly, but ranged against that brilliant global vision are the cornershop bankers who just want to sneak home with their brown paper bags and their Betty Page video’s and who’re just desperate to keep comics at the level of stamp collecting and train-spotting because they can’t face up to the glare of the real world. Which side will you be on? — its as simple as that.”Grant Morrison (1992)

Warren Ellis writes some of my favourite comics at the moment. His website has just got a redesign.
