Warren Ellis unveils 'Scatterlands' daily strip.



Ellis wrote on his website: "So I'd been talking about newspaper strips, and an idea that amused me: to lay a daily single-panel strip down on the website.

"I mean, I'd been talking about various options, but that one did kind of make me smile. And then Jason Howard, a frequent collaborator with Robert Kirkman, emailed and said, 'I could fancy that'.

"So we got to talking, and discovered that certain musics and certain kinds of science fiction were mutual pleasures, guilty and otherwise. And we came up with Scatterlands.

"A largely improvised comic strip that will run here Mondays to Fridays, one panel a day. We'll take a short break every four or five weeks, at which point we'll run a digest of that block of panels somewhere or other (we have no serious plans in this direction beyond the intent, and are basically making s**t up as we go along). But here they will be daily and free."

Ellis previously collaborated with Paul Duffield on the well-received webcomic series FreakAngels.

He recently debuted his second novel Gun Machine.
