Hello Strange, Beautiful World!

June 3, 2008

It is a strange world. And that’s the beauty of it!

This realisation came when I read the Planetary Magazine – a series created by Warren Ellis and John Cassaday published by Wildstorm. At sci-fi tale of mystery and intrigue of the adventures of the Planetary Organisation. It’s a three man group with a person known as – ‘The Fourth Man’ funding it!

Unlimited imagination, a tale that is as interesting as it is challenging. Warren Ellis shows his true genius in stories like these. Inspired by the events in Marvel comics (Fantastic Four), Warren Ellis forges ahead to create a tremedously exciting story that deals with parallel universes, mythical objects of power, God and the random strangeness of events that makes our planet so interesting.

The Planetary*ing Jakita Wagner, The Drummer, Elijah Snow and guest starring Sherlock Homes, Jules Verne and Count Dracula.

A beautiful story and a must-buy comic book.

God?

What this be?

Yes, really!

Yep, could be God!

Hello Tiger and Strawberries!

It all comes back to him.

It begins in London though. It begins with a Zen Gunman whose act of contemplation is pulling the trigger. It also has him chasing a baddie through the colour filled world of India…umm…London, yes!

Right, so zen gunman chasing the baddie who has stolen a big willy (purple soldier of love, tool, rod etc…) that plays music – The Ride of the Valkyries, to be precise! And umm… then zen gunman stealing it back from him by putting a couple of bullets in his knees (note: knees, cuz he’s a Zen Gunman). On this wild chase he is accompanied by Rosi Blades – the most clicked cam girl in London. An odd pair to say the least!

From here this three part comic book called Two Step – goes…bollocks! 😀

A fair on the frozen Thames, a mob whose big weapon is a giant who has a fetish for buggering cars (that’s right, cars as in automobiles and buggering as in sodomising), and a scooter ride into the sunset.

Yep it all comes back to the man – Warren Ellis.

Hello violent world!

May 17, 2008

Violence – the word conjures up images that are graphic – blood, guts, punches and more. When good guys kick evil butt all the way back to where it came from, Hollywood triumphs.

The Midnighter – a superhero who first appeared in a fully loaded comicbook about a rogue superhero team called the Authority. The characters and the books were created by Warren Ellis and Bryan Hitch.

MIdnighter gives violence a new meaning. Where the mainstream superheroes – confront but don’t kill, Midnighter does so with a panache nobody can match. Midnighter derives his powers rom the chips embedded in his brain that allow him to win a fight before it happens (he can process a million combinations of the events about the happen and select the one that causes the most damage).

Midnighter is married to Apollo and both have adopted Jenny Quantum. It’s a long story for another post.

But right here, right now – Midnighter is the big hero (as opposed to Superman being the major hero in DC Universe although Batman gets more stories/comics published than Superman does). The Midnighter-Apollo scenario is seen by some as a take on the Superman-Batman: World’s Finest partnership taken to another level.

MIdnighter now enjoys his own eponymous series – written by one of the finest Storyteller/Writer in our times – Garth Ennis. Brought to life in a comicbook by Penciller- Chris Sprouse, Inker – Karl Story, Colored by – Randy Mayor, Lettered by – Phil Balsman for Wildstorm comics.

When a man puts a bomb in your chest and sends you back in time to kill Adolf Hitler so that his dad can rule in place of the Führer, what do you do if you’re the Midnighter?SPLATT!
When a tank fires a shell on you when you’re the Midnighter, you fight fire with fire!Fire!

“I am not a Father. I am not a lover. I am not a friend.

I am what I was bred to be.

And therein lies the problem.”

— the Midnighter

Today I will share a secret – why is Warren Ellis a comicbook baap(the big daddy-of-comicbooks kinda guy)?

1. Because he writes the coolest and most kickass comicbooks!
