Warren Ellis in Pulp

posted on 2000-09-19 17:39 EDT
Viz announced today that Warren Ellis, comic book author of Transmetropolitan and The Authority, will be writting a regular column for Pulp Magazine starting with Volume 5 issue 1.

Excerpts from press release:

In his new monthly column, the critically acclaimed English-language
comics writer discusses how American and Japanese culture interact through comics. "Western comics were not the same after AKIRA," Ellis says. "It was most Western people's first exposure to post-Tezuka, massively decompressed storytelling. And it was strange to see a Japanese comic, coming as it did from a place that still labored under lots of stereotyping and misconception from abroad, Showing 'us' how to make a comic so utterly contemporaneous."

Warren Ellis is the author of dozens of comic books, ranging from his early work for Marvel Comics to recent series for DC and independent publishers. His work ranges from superheroes to science fiction, horror, and other genres, including PLANETARY, STORMWATCH, THE AUTHORITY and TRANSMETROPOLITAN, which has been praised by sources as diverse as SPIN magazine and science-fiction writer Michael Moorcock. Ellis is the recipient of multiple Eisner Awards, and is the genesis of some of the most high-traffic comics sites on the Internet, "www.warrenellis.com" and the Warren Ellis forum ("www.delphi.com/ellis").
