Global Frequency

Warren Ellis produced a nice little comic called Global Frequency.  12 issues, each with a different artist, around the idea of thousands of on-call specialists available to deal with some of humanities least tractable problems around the world.

It got picked up to be made into a TV series, and then canned after the pilot was made (see the producer's comments here - well worth a read).

You can now get the pilot on BitTorrent.  I plan to watch it this weekend, because everyone I know who's seen it loves it.

Ya never know - with enough publicity, it might even make it to the screen...
