Why Warren Ellis?

Because everyone has heroes, lists, and favorites.
Thank you, Mr. Ellis.
Ask me which sports star is my favorite, without a doubt it's football (still can't bring myself to call it soccer anymore) wunderkind Lionel Messi. Drummer? Carl Palmer. Top three guitarists? Stevie Ray Vaughn, Jimi Hendrix, Sammy Hagar. But when it comes to writers, the name at the top of the list is Warren Ellis. And instead of writing his resume, just check the images of some of his work:
Lazarus Churchyard
Excalibur, X-Force, X-Man, and Astonishing X-Men
Spider Jerusalem in Transmet
Ocean and Orbiter...
Doktor Sleepless, Anna Mercury, and Bad Signal
William Gravel and Richard Fell
Nextwave, greatest Superhero comic ever...
FreakAngels and Ignition City
No Hero, Black Summer, and Supergod
And that's just to name a few! So, this week's challenge: pick your favorite Warren Ellis as your inspiration, and give us a page. You can play at home, too; just leave us a page of script in the Comment section below.

And Warren, if you're out there...Thank you. Thank you very much.
