I'd recommend continuing with Hellblazer, it's never light reading but well worth the read. Also check out Global Frequency, it (oddly) goes between the approach he's taken with Bond and what he did with Transmetropolitan.
Okay, I've just finished reading Global Frequency. Thank you so much for the advice Orion. A truly magnificent comic book.
Which ensudred me of two things.
One: Ellis is a great storyteller who can write a tense, original stories that literally make you hold your breath. And it only proves that with VARGR he didn't come close to his best. Almost as if it was written hastily, in a slapdash way.
And two: he really should team up with more talented artist than Masters. Every single story of Global Frequency has different style which really enriches the narration. Even Simon Bisley's (who I remember from his Lobo artwork and recognized immediately even though it's been almost twenty years since I read it) bizzare drawings. Master's work on VARGR is unbelievably.. common.
Sorry for the slight off-topic.
As for Casino Royale comic book adaptation, I'm wondering if there's anything more to say? After all we've read the novel, we've seen the film (or films). We know the story by heart.
So how are they planning on keeping us interested and excited about it?
I'm looking forward to reading it of course but I'd much rather read some original stories in the future.
