    Warren, please tell me that this teaser is REALLY for your small town detective series on ITV. Like Miss Marple only....you. "And coming up next, Warren Ellis finds himself wrapped up in another mystery when someone is murdered at a dinner party. Stay tuned for Captured Ghosts."

    And your voice is fine and you look fucking awesome. That whole thing about taking photos of you with Mark Millar? Don't regret saying it. Well, maybe with Millar.

    Ok, so we are supposed to think that what they captured on the screen is a real ghost and not a special effect?

    It could be worse. At least you aren't singing your own version of Rocketman.

    Warren, quit smoking cigarettes...you know they kill you, right? Make the switch to the e-cigarette, it's techno-sexy which I'm sure you're all about. Just a thought, dude.

    I have a suspicion that, in Britain, you're accustomed to a more polished standard of radio voice than we are in America. (Also/alternately, it may just be hearing one's own voice, coming from somewhere other than one's own head; when I hear recordings of myself I always think they sound like some sort of tranquilized ape.)

    Oh, and re: smoking, I would have to imagine that Warren has in fact noticed the giant "SMOKING KILLS" message which takes up an entire panel of cigarette packaging in the UK. I mean, if he hasn't, he's doing a remarkable job of concealing his near-blindness. (I still remember when I saw those warnings for the first time, in London; I immediately remembered Dennis Leary's "Drugs" routine and smiled.)

    Wait? Smoking isn't healthy?

    What? WHAT?!?

    Oh...we've been lied to, compromised at every level. The children, what about the children?

    Something's gonna kill you kids. Might as well be something fun.

    I think if a smoker got a dollar for every time someone tells them smoking kills, they'd be rich. Warren's no fool, the man can read, and has made his own choices. Let him smoke in peace.

    Well, sir, you're quite a bit more comprehensible (to my heathen American ears) than Mr. Moore. Bravo.

    This is utterly fantastic news! All my friends will know about this, yes...

    I haven't heard you in maybe 8 years since the signing at Comic Relief. Your voice is fine - though in the trailer - you sound a bit gruffer than I remember. To my ear, you sound like a hard working driven writer.

    I'm looking forward to this as well. I was a fan of the William Gibson doc, NO MAPS FOR THESE TERRITORIES, and this looks somewhat similar. Minus the whole "Ellis being driven around in a car the entire time" element, of course.

    Will mentioning that you sound suprisingly soft-spoken here get me in a world of hurt?

    I'M GUESSING IT WILL!

    ...or is this Documentary going to start off like a normal talking heads beast, only for it to morph in an episode of Jam with Alan Moore as the ghost of Comics past?

    Now that i would pay to see....

    I actually find your voice rather pleasing.

    And I'm definitely looking forward to the doc. I always play the YouTube "Writer's Block" video when I get dejected about writing. It never motivates me, but it's always amusing.
