More Planetary in offing?

Warren Ellis is one of my favorite comic writers, but his output has always been highly erratic. Some years back he started this series called Planetary, which was about these three characters exploring the Secret History of the Wildstorm comics universe, and his take on literary myths like Superman and Sherlock Holmes, and genres like Hong Kong action movies. A very cool read meant to run 25 issues, the meta-plot was just picking up speed when the publication dates began stretching out longer and longer, and finally stopped, with the last issue nearly two years ago now.

From a recent Slashdot interview, it looks like he's actually going to start producing the remaining 10-odd issues. About flipping time.
