The man himself proclaiming that he’s a messiah, Matt Fraction proclaiming “Warren Ellis will break your fucking head open,” and Molly Crabapple assuring that he’s really nice in person are just a few of the highlights in the new trailer for Warren Ellis: Captured Ghosts, the forthcoming documentary from Respect Films and director Patrick Meaney, who produced the outstanding doc Grant Morrison: Talking with Gods just last year.

The project has been in the works for months, and Ellis has frequently commented on it via his blog, often with tons of characteristic snark. Meaney and company recently ran short on cash for the project, and set up a Kickstarter campaign. That has already raised a good bit more than its initial goal. Here’s hoping the extra money will help Respect Films get this project completed by the advertised date of September 2011. In the meantime, we can all go re-read Transmetropolitan and Planetary in preparation.
