If you guys end it on issue eight I'll be really, really sad. And maybe a bit furious.

Assuming you mean about Fell boss...you better check the wizard website here. Someone on my little forum alerted me to it. If I'm wrong, I of course apologize and abase myself before you. I always figure I'm just the last to know anything. I usually am.

http://www.wizarduniverse.com/magazine/wizard/000775433.cfm

"Fans hoping for more volumes of Fell will be disappointed to learn that the author has no plans to return to the series. "I think one is enough because it's a bastard to write," said Ellis. "One is enough. I think it has got the ball rolling for other people. Casanova is out now. I think there's going to be at least one more book in the Fell format in the next six months from Image."

The dick from Wizard with the laptop was in the far corner of the room and well out of earshot. The question was, "will you create more books in the FELL format?"

Great. So there was no reason for me to just shout "FUCK!" in the middle of my office, then?

I guess I don't usually have a reason at all...

*the above comment is me. apparently my browser now likes to log me out of LJ for no apparent reason.*

i am very happy to hear that Wizard is just a bunch of idiots & that nobody has cancelled Fell. group hugs all around.

It could have been worse...they could have called him Brian.

Possibly that's an in joke. See previous lj entry. ;)

You're also a bloody good sci-fi artist.

Git.




ever read/played SLA Industries?

Nah sorry, never heard of them/it.

I suspect you'd rather like it. Violent sci-fi RPG with loads of genetic mutants (built to order) and massive media saturation. Quite good fun, really. I haven't played in many years, but I still read the books occasionally. 'The Contract Directory', which details the most popular assassin/TV stars gets me every time =)


still, you probably don't have the time to check that out, right?

ben_templesmith

Thanks!

And more will be known...in good time I guess. ;)

As for being a gullible twat...well, I just assumed if I read somthing in Wizard, it had to be true!

In my defence, it was about 3:30am when it all happened. I am quite gullible at that hour regarding everything.

Hey, I remember buying Wizard each month myself, because... well... "because", I guess. I think it tickled my fan-gland. ;-)

Seriously, Warren's "The Fuck?" says it all. You thinking "aw well, just another one of those fuck-over's" to me shows you've had your share of shite in the industry, and despite that shite, you're still the Mister-Nice-Guy in modern comics.

AND you do good drawy-stuff.

Hugs!

Thar's awesome, who drew it?

Just kidding...whoa! Love the change in direction.

ben_templesmith

Who drew it? Well...according to Aint it Cool News, some guy named "Brian Templesmith" drew it. I figured I'd try and help his career along as best I could. ;)

A change is as good as a rest I guess...though I'd really like the rest!

See you at the con...I hope!

Love that brown to blue color thing over it... and the WHITENESS of it all... lovely.

Racist! ;) "Whiteness" indeed. Such overt prejudice from you Art. ;)

Oi! I'm black and I'm proud!

...

No I'm not... I mean, I'm not black. Not that I wouldn't WANT to be black, 'cause, I mean, there's absolutely nothing wrong with it, or not that I wouldn't be proud if I WAS black, but I'm not.

Black, that is.

*sigh*

I'll get me coat.

i dunno about anyone else, but there's just something about a guy holding a chainsaw in one hand, a machine gun in the other, sporting a minigun/rocket launcher on his shoulder pad, and a variety of other weapons across his back that makes me feel all...tingly on the inside.

my favorites are the "Buh Bye" on the chainsaw and how you signed your name in the shadow of the oh, so ominous figure. nothing like a little post-apocalyptic artwork to get the blood flowing, eh?
