Warren Ellis knows nothing about GI Joe

Yet he was willing to take up the job of writing a webtoon based on the famous franchise, and on his blog a couple months ago, he said:
It went like this. Sam Register phoned me up and said, we’d really like you to write a GI JOE animation, at a PG-13 rating, aimed at an older viewer. I said, I’ve never seen a GI JOE cartoon in my life. The closest I got to a GI JOE comic was drinking with Larry Hama. I’ve never even seen a GI JOE. Couldn’t tell you what they look like if you paid me. I know nothing about GI JOE. It is meaningless in my world.
So it's a mystery why they would hire him of all people to write anything related to GI Joe. And what if anti-war leanings turn up in the product that's made its debut yesterday, which CBR's Robot 6 blog has a trailer of? (I can't view it here; Adult Swim is like Hulu, and blocks online broadcasts outside North America.) Those, sadly, mean something to the pretentious comics writer from Britain.

And just what kind of people do they have looking for talent at Hasbro?

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
