    An odd question, and one I'd take to someone else, if not for the fact that most of my friends understand how invested I am in the answer at the moment:

    What's your opinion of romantic love? Is it a legitimate phenomenon or an invention to sell chocolate and roses?

    Thanks.

    Thanks for this thread Warren. I wasn't sure if you were gonna open it up again.

    Sorry if already asked, I did check:

    Any upcoming events, lectures, talks, general public appearances -hopefully in UK? I really hope to attend one if poss. (If not please do some. I will pay good money to sit and watch you talk bollox).
    My dad told me that Warren Ellis guy you like was on Radio 4 the other day, but I think he probably meant the Nick Cave musician right?

    Iceland Bob:

    When are we likely to see your next Apparat "real History" title (i.e Crecy). i remember you asking for suggestions, but my impressionable nephews need their next history fix....

    Next spring, with a bit of luck. I've got one forming in my head now that I guess could be out by April or May.


    Oh and are you a Jeremy Kyle or Trisha sort of person when you wake up in the morning?

    Die, Bob.

    Now Warren, Just because you have the mental ability and skill to refine your thoughts into art which is bought and appreciated world wide, doesn't mean the like of Jezzer and Trish shouldn't give the inarticulate bottom rungs of society the time and opportunity to inseminate their personal lives onto the screens of the equally underachieving/unemployed-daytime-tv-watching public.
    Also, don't hate me, but I'm glad to hear the are plans for Desolution Jones.

    In the new book you are putting together will there be any cooking stories? I really liked the recepies in the back of CROOKED LITTLE VEIN. I use the scrambled eggs recepie all the time.

    Also if you were invited to go on THE F WORD to take on Gordon Ramsey in the dessert challenge, would you accept the offer? Any ideas on out cooking Chef Ramsey? And would you throttle the obnoxious matire de from Brussels?

    When are we going to get more cooking and gardening advice?

    You should put a book out of it. I'd buy it.

    I'm wondering what the most crazy/whacked-out thing a fan has ever done at one of your signings/events?
    Also I was in a conversation with the owner of a comic book shop about your work, and he referrred to a book as being your take on Star Trek. He couldn't remember the title and for the life of me, I can't think of anything you've done that could fit that description.I'm not sure if he just made it up, what do you think?

    Do you find it easy to work outside of your office. You know, your daily pub crawl kind of suggests you can (so I might be answering myself here), or is the pub more of a place to relax, think and answer emails before you dive back in your office and write? Do you need absolute isolation to produce work or could you have gone and sit on the 4th plinth and bash out an issue of Gravel?

    Will you writing another 12 issues of Xmen after the Jimenez run? I remember you mentioning that you usually only stay on one year on company owned comics...that still hold true?
  6.  (7016.14)
    I'll be doing at least another six after Phil's five issues (I've written two of them already). After that, we'll see. I'd like to do 24 (well, 23), to match Joss' run, but that's not up to me.

    Where does the best coffee come from? The Americas, Africa or Indonesia?
  7.  (7016.16)
    You can find excellent coffee in any of these places, so long as you're buying single estate beans.

    Do you find it easy to work outside of your office.

    Yeah. If nothing else, it's good process to get the hell away from everything for an hour or two every day while remaining work-geared. It's where new ideas get developed, and where columns get written.

    I''m at about my wits end looking for SK: Necromancer #3 to finsh my Gravel collection and it's not looking good. Have you created a black hole that eats these up so people will buy the trades instead?

    Do you find that you are moving along as planned, or being carried along by the ebb and flow?
  11.  (7016.20)
    Glancing through my old Wizard magazines as I threw them away I came across an interview from 2001 wherein you mention some books you were working on. Can you tell us what happened to "Black Horses" with John Paul Leon and/or "Morning Dragons" with Steve Lieber? Those are both artists I'd really like to see you collaborate with.
