From Warren Ellis's email newsletter Bad Signal:

ULT EXTINCTION is on time -- Brandon's actually working slightly faster than anticipated, and I ended up producing two scripts in a single week to buy some breathing space.

So if anything happens (knocks on wood) it won't be cuz of Brandon.

Good news.

Actually I winced a little at that too, considering the major letdowns that were Ultimate Secret #3 & 4.

Actually, it's on the back of his hand with a smudgy blue biro.
After a half a dozen failed attempts at writing it on the pint glass itself with a pencil.

This news doesn't exactly inspire hope in the hearts and minds of readers. Plus I'm still trying to figure out why they say Gah Lak Tus instead of Galactus?

Meh---I just haven't been impressed with Marvel's big Ultimate Universe Crossover events. Between Gah Lak Tus and Vision---they're leaving a lot to be desired. So I'm even losing faith in the upcoming Wolverine/Hulk arc.

That was bugging me for a while. Then it came to me, his name is Gah Lak Tus, and not Galactus.

Staring me in the ****ing face it was.. some things just pass you by.

This is definitely a cruel joke. I don't believe a comic book writer has ever been a head of schedule.

You mean artists.

A writer falling behind is pretty darn uncommon.

HITCH : Come on Millar, give me the script already, I've been done with the last issues for ages!

MILLAR : Wait, wait, I want to get the last coma right before I move on the the next panel worth of dialogue.

BMB is always 10 issues ahead of Mark Bagley.

Here is my idea for marvel's delay standards. The only acceptable reason for an artist to delay an issue is if they have a broken hand and I mean they will have a broken hand if their comic is delayed. I know this is a bit extreme, but I'm pretty sure this will motivate them.

Yeah, who cares if a family member dies or something. Screw that!
