    Final Words: This review's been all over the place, so I'll try to sum it all up in these final words. Doktor Sleepless #5 was nothing mind-blowing, but anyone claiming this is just the same old Warren Ellis is out of their wits. This story is building toward something that feels more like a Grant Morrison scheme than something Ellis would do, but if it gets better with time it could get very, very good. There's already a blog that mimics the fictional imminent.sea blog, a fan maintained wiki, and hidden URLs and clues to be found both in the comic and on the website. If it makes you feel better, don't look at Doktor Sleepless as just another comic book, look at it as a multi-media experience because it's through reading the comic and perusing the websites that give you a more complete sense of what exactly Warren Ellis is doing.
