Quicky, Spoiler-Free Review: Crooked Little Vein

Warren Ellis’ Crooked Little Vein is offensive, irreverent, and at times disgusting. And those are it’s good points! If you’ve been reading his blog at http://www.warrenellis.com, or if you get his “Bad Signal” e-mails, you know exactly what to expect from him. In fact, a lot of the book reads much like his blog (He even lifts things like the idea that Americans should give each other blankets for Thanksgiving).

The book is entertaining, if not far-fetched. It’s an Alice in Wonderland adventure through America, full of conspiracy theories, people who are debatably sexual deviants, and people who are sexual deviants without the need for debate.

It’s a quick read (I have ADD, and I read it it 2 sittings), so if you can find it at your library (or have time to sit at Borders), go ahead and read it.
