EVENT: Warren Ellis to Speak at The Farmhouse in Hollywood

Warren EllisHow does listening to Warren Ellis speak under an avocado tree in Hollywood sound to you?

Transmetropolitan, Red, and Iron Man fans in the greater Los Angeles area have the chance to witness this come Sunday, January 26 from 6pm to 9pm. Tickets range between $20-$50, which includes some light drinks and snacks - not a bad deal at all! The British author is expected to "tell stories about the world we live in now (and where we’re going in the future)." Get tickets soon, as the event is fairly intimate, capping at around 40 people.

In addition to penning the aforementioned comics, Ellis has written for Vice, Wired UK, and Reuters.

On a link from the Drudge Report, the website breitbart.com is reporting that in an upcoming issue of “Amazing Spider-man,” President-Elect Obama will be making an appearance. Peter Parker attends the inauguration to take some pictures and while there springs into action as Spider-man and punches out an impostor attempting to pose as Obama. I think it’s The Chameleon from the page posted on the website. This really annoys me!

People are entitled to have their political opinions. If you are a writer or an artist, you are free to incorporate your views into a story if you wish.  If you are a liberal, that’s fine. I live in New York, so I have a lot of liberal friends and family members. What pisses me off is that there is no balance when it comes to incorporating politics into comic book stories.
