"They want me to entertain you bastards," Warren Ellis began his series of columns for the comic book Internet destinatioin website Comic Book Resources. Part social commentary, part sitting-at-the-feet-of-Socrates, part kick in the ass, COME IN ALONE was the column that would zig when you thought it would zag. This collection of all fifty-two columns includes Ellis' unique take on the comic book industry, features first-class interviews with top-flight comic book professionals, and even includes the lebgendary Old Bastard's Manifesto. Wrap all this up with an evocative and spooky cover by Brian Wood, and you've got a collection of commentary that midwifed the birth of the comic book industry into the 21st Century.
