Nice to finally get the low down on this thing. I haven't happened upon an explanation anywhere as of yet.


The price is considerably less impressive when I realise it's only sixteen pages.
Still, at least it's not over priced, like the Avatar Robocop crap I got suckered for.

you should have asked us for our opinions on it, Mike.

I've been reading since the first issue.

Yeah, it seems like 1.99 isn't that great for only 16 pages, but when you are reading it, you don't even notice it's length, because the stories are that intriguing.

According to Warren Ellis, there's never going to be one.

Each issue is self-contained, so what's the point?

A little underwhelming. Not quite on the level of Powers or Midnight Nation. But a solid read.

I'm really just praising the coolness of a free issue. :cool:

What's a good 22 pager? $2.99?
That's pretty good, still. Just not as amazing as I thought it was. :?

It's 16 pages of story, yes, but because it's a 9 panel grid, it feels like a full 22 page story.

And in addition, the remainder of the pages are used for text - an essay, usually about the story you just read and how it came to be, and letters. Worth reading for Ellis' unique voice.

All this for 1.99, in a day when comics with less story are going for 3.50, is pretty damn good.

This is a great book. More people should check it out.

More people should ALWAYS check comics out. Books doing well, though.

I enjoy this movie every month! When I first read the "lower price" argument, it didn't seem like that good of a deal, but after reading it and the essays that Ellis puts in there at the end, really push it over top in greatness.

I didn't say never. I said "no time soon." And any trade collection wouldn't contain the backmatter.

Not really. I've always worked in different styles: I'd moved on to GLOBAL FREQUENCY before people started crapping on about "decompression."

The explanation for the thinking behind the FELL format is in the back of #1, and was covered a lot in my email diary. Basically, comics are too expensive for some people, so I wanted to do a comic that you could buy with pocket change and get a complete experience out of.

Well, you've succeeded impressively. Great book.

Agreed on both accounts. Any plans for a sequel to Global Frequency? I loved that there was a complete, epic feeling story in each issue, and the different artists really helped that idea.

Wildstorm ask me about a sequel every now and then. I don't know. I was up for it, but all the bullshit around the tv show kind of took the wind out of my sails a bit.

FELL is a damn fine book. No hyperbole -- one of the best on the shelves right now.
