    If you were trying to make an Ellis convert out of someone who, for some odd reason, was morally opposed to reading anything longer than one trade paperback, what would you suggest?

    Me list:
    Either Global Frequency trade
    Fell
    Crécy
  2.  (433.2)
    NextWAVE or Fell
  3.  (433.3)
    i have done this already with global frequency multiple times.

    It depends on what the person is into, really.

    Ministry of Space and/or Orbiter spring immediately to mind.

    Desolation Jones yo.

    So many of my friends are roped in by JHWIIIs art and are won over by Warren's writing.

    I would've mentioned Desolation Jones...but I live an embarssing life as a 'not-yet-reader.'

    (Oh yes, a willing dancing monkey I am.)

    I'd have to say Ministry of Space. The writing and art are both fantastic and it's a great piece of classic science fiction.

    The Apparat Singles Collection - quality and variety in one volume.

    TRANSMETROPOLITAN: LUST FOR LIFE

    It's got the Mary story, and Spider's visit to the religion convention.

    Converted four to the Ellis with that, though Strange Kiss works well for fans of David Icke.

    Desolation Jones by a country mile.

    Depends entirely on the person:

    Mainstream TV viewer: Fell or Lust for Life
    Crime fiction fan: Fell
    Genre Fan (SF): Global Frequency
    Super Hero fan, older: Planetary: All Over the World
    Super Hero fan, younger: Authority Vol 1 or Nextwave
    History Buff: Crecy

    and so on...

    Hey, your right! I love Icke and Strange Kiss...somehow, I never put the two together.

    "Authority: Relentless" issues 1-8. Other issues followed, but 1-8, come on!

    Just wanted to say that I like JTraub's list a lot. It's a testament to Warren's craft that he has that range. Though, we all realize there's a gaping void of Warren's work for the romantic comedy fans. I feel Black Summer is destined to appeal to the genre and older superhero fans.

    JTraub, where would you put Desolation Jones?
  12.  (433.17)
    I prefer not to limit myself, so ALL of them.
  13.  (433.18)
    Sure I will play this game a bit more, why not.

    Mainstream TV viewer (Cop): Fell, Scars
    Mainstream TV viewer (Comedy): Lust for Life
    Mainstream TV viewer (Drama): Apparat
    Crime fiction fan: Fell
    Genre Fan (SF in general): Global Frequency, New Universal vol 1.
    Genre Fan (Firefly, Farscape fans only): Switchblade Honey
    Genre Fan (alt history): Ministry of Space
    Horror: Black Gas
    Horror Lovecraft: Strange Kiss
    Hard SF Fan: Orbiter or Ocean
    Spy Fiction: Desolation Jones
    Super Hero fan, older: Planetary: All Over the World
    Super Hero fan, younger: Authority Vol 1 or Nextwave
    Super Hero Crossover/Event Junkie: Black Summer when ever its done and collected, SW:Change or Die
    Super Hero Fan, kid: Ultimate Fantastic Four Volume 2
    History Buff: Crecy
    Sword and Sorcery Conan fan: Wolfskin (shhhh, don't tell them)
    Manga Fan: the URL for Freak Angels maybe, hah.

    and

    Romantic Comedy: Stranger Kisses. It is about love after all, and I laughed.

    Sarcasm on //Keep in mind folks, all of Warren's work is the same, I know this because the interweb says its so//

    For me, probably Fell and Orbiter.
