After Rich Johnston surprised (or didn’t) the comics community yesterday with his announcement that Lying in the Gutters was ended at CBR and his own comics blog would be taking its place, it seems Warren Ellis just has to one up him.
At which point, I may as well confess that I’ll be returning to writing weekly about comics and things at bleedingcool.com.
At his blog, he posted the news today. This isn’t a first for Ellis, as he has previously held several internet columns about comics and otherwise. The prolific writer maintains a massive internet presence already, with the aforementioned blog, his ever-hilarious twitter stream, a highly successful webcomic that blends traditional style comic pages with a free weekly delivery called FreakAngels, his own message board that has a mostly non-comics focus and boasts several industry members (check out the remake/remodel threads for a real treat), and that’s just his core set of sites. So if all that, plus the Bad Signal mailing list wasn’t quite enough Ellis for you, well, you have less than a week to add another place.
As a small aside, congrats to Rich and best of luck on your new endeavor with BleedingCool.com
