Ellis Tells Us The Fell #10 Script Is Done, But…

FellIn his new newsletter Orbital Operations, Warren Ellis caught his fans up on some of his current projects including the long waited for next issue of Fell with Ben Templesmith.

FAQ: Ben’s had the FELL #10 script for a couple of years, but his life is massively busy and complicated. I know he’s broken ground on it, and he knows that when he finishes that issue I’ll write another one. But it’s not on any schedule, and will happen only when Ben has time and space in his life. We are good friends and all is well. I believe I’m also set to write the introduction to his next big project.

He also spoke of an audiobook recording by Star Trek’s Wil Wheaton.

The other week, Wil Wheaton went into a studio and recorded an audiobook version of my horrible little story DEAD PIG COLLECTOR. I don’t know right now what the international provision of this audiobook is, but I do know that it can be pre-ordered in North America right now. This is the Amazon.com link. I’m sure audiobook fans know where else to go.

And he spoke briefly about the new Moon Knight series and working with artist Declan Shalvey and colourist Jordie Bellaire.

Very much a team, those two, and I enjoy being able to write for a colourist again. I presume it launches in the spring, I can’t find a hard date on my schedule right now. I’m working on the script for the third issue at the moment, and Dec just showed me layouts for the second issue. He has a really interesting way of telling a story using stacks of page-wide panels that’s keeping me on my toes.

Finally he announced that he’s begun work on a new prose novella, a long one his account, that will be published by Farrar Straus Giroux, also the publisher of Dead Pig Collector and the non-fiction work he has in progress.
