    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?

    You're thinking of Switchblade Honey, I bet.

    Have you ever had a "day" job - a gig requiring you to show up at the same place at roughly the same hours at least five days/week? What was the last one, if so?

    That there's almost begging for a Twitter meme: "jobswarrenellisusedtodo"

    I'd start it, were I not fearing the eels.

    Day jobs have included working at a garden centre, briefly running a pub, working behind a bar, working in a records department of a store, working in bankruptcy, working in a bookshop, running a bookshop. Packed in day jobs around 23/24, I think?

    Probably been asked before, but what does a typical Warren Ellis work day consist of these days, exactly?

    Just wondering. Have you ever been asked to be a talking head on TV culture programmes a lá Alan Moore on Comics Britannia or the late review at all?

    And if you were to be asked, what would your answer be?

    I did a spot for Channel 4 news once, talking about some tv show, I forget which... in general, I avoid that kind of thing. There's an awful lot of talking-monkey-syndrome, that affects even Alan's appearances -- "look, he writes comics AND he's intelligent. We better find some other way to make him look fucking stupid." And usually, they do. No-one's giving Jeanette Winterson a copy of KICK-ASS to flick through out of altruism. And the level of intellectual rigour in relation to comics on The Late Review is usually worse than that -- Tom Paulin's considered opinion on the work of Chris Ware were "oh, aren't the colours dreary?"

    Nah. Occasionally I'll look at an international match if one happens to be on when I sit down on a Sunday afternoon.

    And what would the point of that have been? I know Nick Griffin's history, I've read BNP literature, I'm fairly up to date on current affairs, and I know he and the BNP are all poisonous cunts who don't deserve to breathe.

    Why, were you one of the people who let Nick Griffin claim that he alone won Question Time its best ratings in years and that it bespeaks a passionate British interest in his policies?

    I mentally packed in work when I realised I would have to get up in the mornings, nowadays I approach every day as if I'm about to be fired which I find gives me the appearance of being incredibly confident. I'm still working on a way to get paid just to exist.

    Ginja is most definitely not one of those people.

    Oh my god, that's a tough one.

    I'll come back to that, I think.

    How do you feel about print media dying out?

    Honestly, I don't think it is. It's just changing.

    Any plans to play around in the western, crime noir, or kung fu/chop socky genres?
  10.  (7016.19)
    Westerns don't hold a great deal of appeal to me -- too American a tradition, maybe? Similarly, something like FELL is probably as noir as I get. I've often fancied having a go at the traditional Chinese martial-forest form. Maybe one day, when I have the time to study the old Chinese comics again and assemble the right toolbox...depicting motion is always the killer, and the Chinese evolved very specific tools to do it in illustration.

    You've worked with a lot of talented artists... are there any artists you haven't done anything with yet, that you'd like to pencil/paint a book of yours in the future?
