    I think the answer to the is Warren sticking around question should definitely be yes. Around he should stick.

    Hello Si!

    Call me sentimental, but before Warren hands over Whitechapel's leather control leashes to Si, would it hurt to have an "Our Founder"-style portrait of Warren gracing the site? It would be a visual reminder of his guiding presence behind this community. Then again, I'm not talking about one of those traditional 18th-century portraits, but something visually appropriate for him.

    Well hell. Didn't know there was actually a reason Warren was linking to him so often. Like God, Warren seems to have a plan behind every seemingly random ocurrence. "Links in mysterious ways..." Speaking of God, loved Si's Short and Curly #50 column and recently messaged it to 5 other people of similar hate-tinged atheism on facebook, message heading: "I want to express my atheistic hate as well at this But Probably Never Will". So, cool he's taking over.

    Welcome Si, you come highly recommended, sir.
    All I ask is that you do what you can to make this twisted and wonderful matrix of artists and creatives stay the course of its own twisted-ness. It literally has changed my career hanging out here, and I look forward to whatever comes next.

    I'm certain Paul Sizer has already designed something suitable, but I'll be buggered if I can find the images now...

    I like both Crosses and Family Values, and Psychopath seems to be shaping up to be something different enough and also awesome, so I'll happily hang around here for the community and the next Crossed tale.

    1. I to hope that Warren pops in from time to time.
    2. A portrait, if any, should in fact be an 18th century style with a puffy collar and aliens, but I don't think we need a reminder.
    3. If I get banned from that comment it has been real.

    Paul Sizer knows when to design and when not to design. This is the latter.

    Part of the reason we're aiming for a slow transition is that it takes far longer than you might think to develop the appropriate Anal Pocket for the storage and manipulation of Arse Eels. It's not something you want to rush, y'know? Nobody wants to belong to a forum ravaged by poorly-disciplined rectal anguilliformes.

    You guys are both delightful.

    Also, as much as I 'love' the Arse Eels, I sense an imminent rise in Rape Dolphins.

    I just got most of a bar to toast "Long Live Whitechapel!" I seriously doubt any of them knew what I was talking about, but that's alright.

    Welcome aboard, Si. I haven't read you yet, but that's going to change right fucking sharpish.

    Yeah, yeah. In another few weeks you'll have run out your string, and we'll all have transfered our allegiance to a younger, more vital master. Your pub table's already closed; we have to start ingratiating ourselves as soon as possible.

    An historical note:
    "I'm transferring my allegiance to a younger, more vital male."
    That's how one of my goddaughters informed her father she was getting married. It's a useful verbal construct for any sort of change.

    Welcome, Si.
    Mark's warned me told me about you. Bwahaha.
    I hope you enjoy it here, have fun making comics, and oh yeh. Have fun makin' comics, dammit.

    Also. I dub thee "Mini-warren".
    Take that as you will. I hand out nicknames almost as frequently as I get them. :) (and yeh, if it really does bug you I will STFU with the nicknames. Except for calling Warren Ellis "sir". because I just can't. It's like this weird reflex thing).

    @gov
    -if Warren says "Behave or I'm turning this internet around RIGHT NOW", that's when I'll be afraid :)

    I can't shake the suspicion that this is all an obtuse marketing scheme for 'A Serpent Uncoiled'...it'd be damn impressive if it was.
