    Good morning, denizens of White Chapel...

    This is Steve Ekstrom; most of you might be familiar with my work on Newsarama.com. Well, this month my first webcomic endeavor, THE ARES IMPERATIVE, is up on ZUDA and I'm competing for a much-coveted publishing contract with the website.

    I've been much more of a lurker at this site than I used to be--but I'm a firm believer in the strange mixture of awesomeness that is Warren Ellis. In fact, in the last 24 hours, two people have said that my work on THE ARES IMPERATIVE has echoes of his voice in it...which is a HUGE compliment that I don't believe I'm worthy of.

    So, please consider voting for my little story--it's an homage to the old EC action-adventure and science fiction stories of the mid 20th century--with a little bit of Johnny Quest, 24, the Bourne novels/films, and The Manchurian Candidate (from Mars) thrown in for good measure. Check it out.

    If you're reading this, Warren, I put "the band" together--and I'm doing it. :)

    Best wishes--have a great day, folks.

    Steve Ekstrom
    Writer, THE ARES IMPERATIVE
