Warren Ellis's Scars -- Imagine NYPD Blue as directed by David Lynch or perhaps David Fincher. That's my high-concept description of Warren Ellis's new Scars, a mini-series with artist Jacen Burrows coming from Avatar Press.

I've always enjoyed Ellis's Avatar titles. They're not as polished as his work for other companies, but they have a raw, nasty attitude that perfectly suits their black-and-white horror sensibilities. Burrows is a perfect artist to handle this project, equally capable of depicting normal life and the hideous underworld that Ellis quickly introduces.

Warren sent along the script to issue #1 last night, and I think this will be his best Avatar effort yet. The script finds a bitter cop encountering about the most horrific drug dealer scenario imaginable -- and the true horror is in how very possible Ellis's ideas are. This could happen; maybe it already has.

Between Global Frequency and Scars, Ellis looks to be seriously back and working in a variety of genres. This is very good news for readers, indeed.
