Graphic Novelist Warren Ellis’ 4am PodcastJun 17th, 2010 | By Elisabeth Lewin | Category: Audio Podcasting, Podcast Quickies
Warren Ellis is probably best known as a graphic novelist. He has worked over the past 16 years at both DC and Marvel Comics, as well as Caliber Comics, Image Comics, and Avatar [under the "imaginary" imprint Apparat], and is author of the prose novel Crooked Little Vein.
He has created stories about such comic heroes as the X-Men, Batman, and done a graphic novelization of Philip K. Dick’s story, “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?”. Ellis’ stories make social and cultural commentary and many feature transhumistic technology that meld man with technological “enhancements.”
We were surprised to learn that Ellis also has a music podcast. The 4am is an occasional series compiled from music created and sent to him by his readers. The theme and style of the podcast varies from show to show; the latest episode, “Sleep Department,” is a half hour of lovely ambient spacey tunes [which caught my attention in the first place].
