Official Press Release
ComicBookResources.com (CBR), the premier comics destination, is proud to offer a signed, limited-edition trade paperback collecting Warren Ellis’ “Come In Alone” column written exclusively for CBR.
This collection presents all 52 columns written by Warren Ellis, containing his unique take on the industry, interviews with top professionals, plus “The Old Bastard’s Manifesto,” the most talked about and influential column of the entire series.
“Like everyone else in comics, I used to devour Warren Ellis’ COME IN ALONE every Friday on Jonah Weiland’s Comic Book Resources,” commented Larry Young, whose company AIT/PlanetLar has put togheter the collection. “Some of the columns were diverting confections; others were as incisive as the hard stare from your prom date’s dad. All were well-crafted and all were entertaining. I remember reading the eighteenth column, the one with The Old Bastard’s Manifesto, and thinking, ‘Jesus, I hope someone has the sense to collect all these in a book when he’s done, because there are some important things being uncovered here.’ Then I realized I might just be the man for the job.
“A few bottles of good whisky, and Ellis was convinced; a large donation to Brian Wood’s numbered Swiss bank account, and I got an evocative and haunting cover out of the best designer in comics. A quick conference with Jonah, and an author’s signed edition was manifest.”
This edition is signed by Warren Ellis, limited to 500 copies, costs $29.95 and can only be purchased online in the CBR Store. Orders are now being accepted and shipping will begin Monday, June 25th. Place your order by Monday, June 25th and get the collection for $24.95, $5 off the regular price.
