On Warren Ellis’s characters

I am perhaps not reading this in the way it was intended (and I’m doing it on purpose, even!)—but if I were Warren Ellis, this preview isn’t quite the sort of publicity I’d hope for:

…Jones is very much an original character. Where Spider Jerusalem would use a bowel disrupter to incapacitate his “victims,” Jones gouges their eyeballs out with his own fingers.

Well, it’s a day after I post my new year’s resolution and I’m posting this? It’s all meant to be jovial good fun, I promise. The problem with my new year’s resolution is that it makes me reluctant to poke even good-natured fun, because the internet is such an anti-jovial zone.

    All the more reason, I should think, to try and inject some good-natured fun. Rage against the machine: smile.

    I think, if one were to avoid the comments, a site like Fanboy Rampage is actually funny and without bile. It’s just people like me in the comments that make it so vicious. But there’s nothing wrong with you having a good laugh now and then.

    Ha ha! That’s why I read the FBR comments and Steven doesn’t, in fact!
