Warren Ellis is a comic book writer who lives in Southend, United Kingdom. He was born in Febuary 1968 in Rochford, Essex, United Kingdom. Ellis is a self-admitted cynical bastard and has even quoted Grant Morrison once calling him "the man with a snarl for every occasion" in an interview.

He started off in the British comic magazine Speakeasy (which later folded and became Blast), with the beginnings of Lazarus Churchyard. Lazarus Churchyard is the story of an immortal man, who only wants to die.

Ellis moved on to American comics, and wrote for Marvel and DC. Some of the comics he has written for include Wolverine, Excalibur, X-Calibre, Hellblazer, Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight, and many others. He also wrote comics that were his creation rather than others. He has created such wonderful series as Transmetropolitan, Planetary, Dark Blue, Strange Kiss, and others.

Ellis is known to be friends with other British comic greats, such as Alan Moore, Garth Ennis, and Grant Morrison.

At the moment he lives in Britain, with his girlfriend and their daughter.
