Warren Ellis is my favorite goddamn comic book writer of all time. Granted, I haven’t followed him as closely the past couple of years. But, that’s more about my failing to read any comics. That said? Ellis writing a T-Rex Batman may be just the juice needed to power my ass back into a funny book shop.

Monday Morning Commute: The Easy Winter

The Easy Winter

All of them, for your pleasure. I hope. Oh, I hope. You’ll share your own world(s) in the comments section!
