This Week In Comics (28may09)

May 27th, 2009 | comics talk

Comics creators: got a book on release this week? Go to Whitechapel and tell us about it.

(DON’T post it in comments here. Someone does, every week. And I delete it. Ha ha.)

Everyone else: also at that link, a list of what’s in comics stores from this Thursday.


Architectural Association Talk: More Details

May 27th, 2009 | about warren ellis/contact

Okay, so, I’m in London on Friday speaking at the AA as part of their symposium THRILLING WONDER STORIES, an all-day event around the theme of science fiction and cities. Co-organiser Geoff Manaugh has all the details at this link here. Notables: it’s free entry, and if you keep checking back at that link, Geoff will eventually update it with details of the planned live stream.

I don’t know what time I’m on.

It’s Wednesday, I’m backed up with work, and I still have no idea what I’m going to talk about because bloody editors won’t leave me alone.

Check out that line-up, though.


On Whitechapel This Afternoon (26may09)

May 26th, 2009 | brainjuice, comics talk

Just barely starting the week at my internet hovel:

* Post-London MCM Comics Expo Thing – portmortem of this past weekend’s event.

* REMAKE/REMODEL: The Gadget Man – this week’s art challenge. A terrific piece already in from Annie Wu, among others…

* The Self Portrait Imagethread (May09) – the male nudity had to be stopped before we started to feel the clammy horror of one of the participants draping his testicles on our foreheads. Sorry, Suraya.

* Comics Shipping This Week (28may09) — the list, with a few indications from me as to what’s worth looking for.
