PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: Warren Ellis launches his new creator-owned line of books right here with the first four books from Apparat! The four Apparat books are inspired by the pulp magazines of the 1930's and imagine modern day comic books that evolved from the pulps without the influence of super-heroes. Each issue features a full-length story with loads of extra text material by Ellis. Angel Stomp Future is illustrated by Juan Jose Ryp (Frank Miller's Robocop, Alan Moore's Another Suburban Romance). Ellis describes the creation of Angel Stomp Future, "I love the science fiction pulps. Always have. I own dozens of sf pulps from the 30s, and books of their covers. The sf pulps still survive today, in the shape of monthly digest-size magazines. But they don't have the true spark of madness in their covers, and rarely in their content. You could look at those old covers and see people opening up the throttle and just letting rip, getting as crazy as possible, just for the hell of it, just for the art and the sound of it. Ryp is the spiritual heir of those early sf pulp artists -- working at the upper limit of imagination and endurance, filling every inch of his pages with exquisitely-illuminated insanity and producing it at almost impossible speeds. Me and Ryp, making some noise. Angel Stomp Future now."
