    Favourite work by Orson Welles?

    F FOR FAKE, without a doubt.

    Have you ever considered setting up (or forcing some minions to organize) some sort of big Whitechapel gathering in meatspace?

    Good god, no. When that happened on WEF, people started reproducing.

    FreakAngels seems to be doing well using a "free online/pay for the printed collection" business model (is it?).

    Ask Avatar. I don't know the numbers.

    Will you be using this same model for future comics?

    No idea. Maybe one day.

    Do you recommend it for other artists/writers?

    Um... webcomics that paid for their creators to live were around long before I came on the scene.

    Are you investigating any other innovative business models?

    If I were, would I tell you?

    Warren,
    I thoroughly enjoyed Orbital, and my copy has your signature on it (which is pretty awesome). Thanks for taking our questions, it's always cool to hear what you have to say. You're welcome to answer as many or as few of my questions as you like:

    If you could fist fight any comic book creator/writer/artist, who would it be and why?

    Would you have taken FX7?

    I am creating a comic and publishing it to my blog one page at a time (I'm only writing I can't draw to save my life). Do you have any advice on what to do with my writing in this digital world?

    What do you think is the coolest invention humans have ever come up with?

    You may have related something like this before, but if you did, I missed it.

    Would you share a personal story of fans actually making you fear for your life, a la the mark waid story you posted a while ago? Or, barring that, at least a REALLY weird/creepy one? Just the fact that people will show up at your booth with your entire collected works to sign tells me that you've had at least a few.

    There really isn't one. People tend to behave themselves around me.

    @ Senor Ellis -

    Do have any honest-to-goodness "guilty pleasures"? Like something you never thought you'd ever in a million years you'd be a fan of and will actually go "Holy dickface, I can't believe I'm watching/reading/listening to this!"

    It's the insuperable terror that accompanies your presence, Warren. I felt as if it was necessary to ask you not to stab me when you did that talk in Dundee.

    Have you ever had a story idea that made you flinch and think "So fucking wrong, even for me"? Did you write it?

    Warren - what was the latest tally on your POD Shivering Sands book? (loved it by the way - lots of stuff of yours that I had not read in its original form).

    Do you consider it a "success" in terms of financials and in terms of what you wanted to put out there?

    On another note - did you ever watch the last few seasons of THE SHIELD?

    I'm happy your fans treat you like a human being, somewhat rare in fandom. I've heard of writers actually quitting various series because they were stalked.

    I'm submitting an online sci-fi/horror animation piece in a few months, and while I've got a handle on distribution, any tips on launch and advertisement?

    Dearest Warren... My place wouldn't have room for a stack of dismembered rentboys, even if they were vacuum-packed.

    Do you think you'll come back to Norway/Bergen and Raptus in the next few years? I have no idea how those things are arranged and who contacts who, but FreakAngels is the first thing you've done since Transmet that has been so big I've heard people talking about it even in Norway, so to me now seems the right time to come back. And anyway Transmet is still sort of news over here.

    Warren,

    You are often heading down the pub. Obviously this is conducive to drinking, but how is this conducive to your writing? How much writing do you get done down the pub, if any? Or is this venue simply a genuine 'ideas den'?

    @ warrenellis. Ever seen a ghost?

    I've never been invited back to Raptus. I don't think that's something they do. No plans to go back to Norway.

    Hi Warren!

    I know you've written about your experiences and general thoughts on comicons in the past, but I thought I'd ask anyway. When, if ever, do you plan on coming back to North America for a comicon/convention/gathering of some kind? Or do you just not think about those things?

    Cheers

    1. I've often found it amazing how you're able to write so many things in a day and can still come online and torment/love us. Do you have a schedule for that kind of thing, and if so can you run some of it by us? Just wondering how you do your amazing time management.

    2. Got any BBC, YTV, Channel4 or ITV shows/movies from any year you'd recommend?

    3. If you ever come to Toronto, can I buy you a drink, squire?

    I don't know if we are supposed to be limited to one question/post, but i'm asking another.

    Happened to be reading old Marvel issues of G.I.Joe and admiring how you managed to capture the spirit of Larry Hama's characters in Resolute. Did Larry Hama's original G.I.Joe comics influence your take on the Joe universe? Also was the decision to make Scarlet's love interest Duke (like in the Sunbow cartoon) rather then Snake-Eyes (like in the Marvel comics) your choice? If it was, why make that change?
