    @oldhat

    IT is going to be very cross with you once I pin the soda-soaked keyboard on you. Office equipment and spit-takes don't mix.

    So Warren's dying? I'm sorry, I didn't actually read this thread.

    I remember when I first encountered Warren Ellis. It was in the Congo in 1912 and we'd been lost in the jungle for some time. I'd tell you the rest of the story but why bother? It's more fun if you make up the rest yourself.

    Your eels can't reach us now and more's the pity. We'll miss you but I'm sure you'll get along without us. We'll still buy your books but we probably won't throttle people who don't know who you are.*

    *Well, I still will but that's because on DO ANYTHING and Jack Kirby's Head on your desk. When Stan dies, what will you do with his head? I have some ideas ...

    He's dying...?

    Don't worry, Warren. We will ensure that you go easy. We shall take turns hugging you in your deathbed and telling you how much we wuggy-luggy luv you and telling you about all the good things that have been happening to us lately and listening happily to the many many swearwords you will be spitting in an attempt to kill us all with ballistic saliva and projectile vomiting and then we'll show you the many drawings we've made of you by which time you will overcome the illness and get up on your feet so you can throw yourself out the window.

    But don't worry because there'll be WCers below the window to catch you and hug you.

    Forever.

    I'm not hugging him, he's got Hungarian Cockrot.

    Oh, maybe just a LITTLE hug ...

    the end of an era, and the passing of the arse eels, we had fun and remade and remodelled, talked shit, and read some great comics, and in the process of all that we all created a community under the gaze of a talented man, that kept us in line and stopped it becoming another circle in this divine comedy of internet hell. but we're still here and the community will hopefully live on, as far as internet sub cultures go this one is wierd in good ways we look at pictures of abandoned underground tunnels linked in around the net at 3am not stuff that'll get you arrestted and put on a pervert register, long live whitechapel.

    We're handing out hugs and here I am coincidentally, and accidentally, naked from the waist down. Oh go on then.

    Thanks for the freaks and the angels, now all the pressure is on Mr Spurrier. I hope he cracks like a cheap, pornographic vase and produces something vile.

    NEVERMIND DELETE THIS ONE. THIS WAS A BETTER COMMENT IN THEORY THAN IN PRACTICE.

    Don't be strangers.

    i had a dream last night that i was writing a Tom Baker Doctor Who script called - 'Blood Over the Ringpiece'!?!
    do you think it was a result of me taunting the arse eels?

    Thank you, Warren. There's always a tankard of suspicious looking liquid waiting for you at The Outer Church.

    This is the kind of warm and loving circlewank I wouldn't miss for the world. I'm currently reading through Transmetropolitan as it's being published through Comixology and reliving the vibe of how it got me through the darkest days of my journalistic career. I was poked by taphead to join this forum, which gave me a swift kick in the creative nuts I needed.

    I have bought the Freakangels hoodie and the sling bag, but weirdly enough, I haven't read Freakangels in almost a year: I'm waiting for it to be published in an electronic form where I can pay for it. Me and my credit card are in a holding pattern here - stuff like this needs to be paid for! Thanks, Warren, for writing this stuff and creating the community, thanks Paul for the great artwork (and truly sorry we couldn't use it in Iron Sky), and thanks for all the rarely seen minions who made this possible.

    But, godspeed you black emperor, and good luck with your future adventures. Freakangels has been a great creative adventure and this forum was a great spawning ground for absurd little shits like me. The creative circles definitely need more people like Warren out there!

    OH MY GOD!! The arse-eels are real?!?

    I am not going to ask how Mr. Ellis found that link. I don't want to know. I dont...

    Why, Mr. Ellis, why?

    @StefanJ - Only instead of "Kiss me, Hardy", it'll be "Anyone who tries to kiss me will be shot dead."
