Any idea how much of it has already been written? I've been aching for something to be released consistently from Ellis.

Not sure.  I think they were originally supposed to start putting it up last Fall, but I couldn't tell you whether they've been working on it this whole time so they could have a lot of it already in the can, or it's just fell by the wayside for a while.  To be fair to Ellis, I think a lot of the delays on his work tend to be due to the fact that he's usually teamed up with artists who do great, but time consuming work, and Ellis doesn't ever seem to use fill-in artists when things start falling behind.

And the fact he tries to write too many damn stories at once.

First six pages are up.  Also Newsarama recently did interviews with Ellis (http://forum.newsarama.com/showthread.php?t=146720) and Paul Duffield (http://forum.newsarama.com/showthread.php?t=146834).

I'm liking this so far, although I try to keep myself from checking back every week since I'd rather just let a few episodes build up first.  Also, yet another Ellis project has been announced:

Someone pm me when these are "finished" and I can buy them in a lasting format (read: not a flimsy comic), also the one is SF sounds cool because its in SF, too bad that art looks pretty lame for a first immpression cover.

The first TPB is making it's debut at Wizard World Texas (this month from the 7th to the 9th at the Arlington Convention Center).  Supposed to be an HC and a Limited HC signed by Ellis and Duffield, but I don't know if those will be available yet.  There will also be an exclusive art print (limited to 250) available there:

Paul Duffield will also be at Wizard World signing copies.

I've just started reading this, and it's f'ing sweet. I was sold as soon as I saw the steampunk chopper.
