Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Warren Ellis' hugely popular web comic, Freakangels, is here, collected in print for the first time in this gorgeous, full-color trade paperback! 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.

Synopsis:

Six years ago, twelve psychic children accidentally used their powers to flood the world. Now they attempt to rebuild society and defend London's Whitechapel survivors from one of their own.

Twenty-three years ago, twelve strange children were born in England at exactly the same moment. Six years ago, the world ended. Today, eleven strange 23-year-olds live in and defend Whitechapel, maybe the last real settlement in flooded London. When a dazed, gun-toting girl appears on the outskirts with a deadly grudge against the self-proclaimed Freakangels, the kids realize that an old enemy is still alive beyond the safety of their borders... a twelfth psychic child, evil and exiled, who can program human minds to hate, and send his private, pirate armies into Whitechapel for revenge. The first chapter in award-winning author Warren Ellis' post-apocalyptic web comic series!

Warren Ellis has a great voice, and I am loving FreakAngels as much as any of his prior projects, a kinda snarky take on "Village of the Damned". This is one of those instant classics, in my opinion, right up there with "Pride of Baghdad", "Bone", "300", and "We3". Not your everyday ho-hum cliche of postapocalyptic life amongst the zombiefied and/or virus-infected. The artwork alone of the new London waterworld is inspiring and this is one graphic novel I would love to see come to the big screen. Just read it already and keep thinking: "Brick wall... brick wall..."
