Volume 1

Ellis, Warren

Book - 2008
Average Rating: 4 stars out of 5.
Twenty-three years ago, twelve strange children were born in England at exactly the same moment. Six years later, the world ended. This is the story of what happened next. So welcome to Whitechapel, some years from now, just barely above ground in a flooded England, where a clan of eleven strange people with purple eyes - the Freakangels - have carved out some sort of a life for themselves. A life that starts to show big cracks when a girl called Alice from Manchester turns up with a shotgun and a grievance, having met the lost, prodigal last Freakangel, who had very different ideas about what they should do with themselves and this flooded future England. Because the Freakangels have a big secret: Something very bad is their fault.

Freak Angels is an interesting story set in a post-apocalyptic world created by the writer Warren Ellis (Transmetropolitan, Fell). In this series we get right into the middle of the story and action. The reader learns about the world and what happened along the way. Highly recommended for mature readers and fans of Ellis' work.

I have been following this comic online for some time and I would highly reccomend it for anyone who likes steampunk and post apocalyptic stories.

some fo teh characters I find rather grating while others are charming and/or adorable. The pacing can be a little slow unfortuntaley.

The artwork by Paul Duffield is gorgeous and again, the colours give it a very steampunk, sepia tinged sort of atmosphere. Overall a good read.
