Format: Hardcover
The Freakangels world continues to grow with this second volume. As the new girl settles in, a mortar attack signals the beginning of a traitor in the midst of Whitechapel and the Freakangels retaliate by heading to the dissident territory of Shoreditch. The infrastructure of Whitechapel is debated as the Freakangels' protectorate grows and they begin to realise their responsibilities lie further afield.

The characters of the Freakangels are what I love best about this series. Warren Ellis imbues them with individual characteristics and has them interact so easily, I completely buy that they're best friends with a long history behind them. There's also hints of how they ended the world and the variety of their powers, which suggests adventures of the kind of large scale Ellis is used to dealing with in series like "The Authority" and "Planetary".

Paul Duffield's drawing style continues to enthral. He uses large panels per page so the maximum number is four and often is just two or three, allowing for more detail per page and a kind of cinematic quality to the books. There's also a few scenes where the Freakangels go on the hunt for their supposed assassins and the way he draws them makes them look like a scene from the "Village of the Damned".

"Volume 2" is an excellent sequel to the first one, adding more to the saga of these fascinating characters the increasingly more doomed world they inhabit. "Freakangels" is quickly becoming one of my favourite Ellis titles and is definitely worth a look if you're a comics fan.

Format: Hardcover
This wonderful series continues just as well as it started. Almost mirroring the first issue we have a long period of character development. This includes some clever recaps and cast reintroductions courtesy of Alice. Then there is a shocking moment of drama but this time there are consequences that need to be dealt with.

We meet the remaining members of the Angels ensemble and also see a small flashback of life before. The clues and reveals are expertly timed so you never get frustrated or deluged with information. As always character is king and although you have a lot of personalities to take on board they all remain distinct.

The art has stepped up a gear. There are more digital backgrounds, adding to the already high production value, and more complex shading appearing. A large part of the story takes place at night so many of the pages are quite dim. Whilst this would be fine on screen (as this was originally an online comic) it looks a little murky in print, but does allow you some great lighting effects.

You want more and you want it now. Maximum Thumbs Up!

Buy it even though you can read it free online 1 Feb. 2010
By V. Gomez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Anyone familliar with Freakangels knows that you can read this free every week, but this thing is so great that it is worth purchasing even if you have read the entire story to its current episode. Great quality book, beautifull art, and always great writting from the Master himself Warren Ellis. I bought this for my wife and she loves it, next up is trying to convince my daughter to read it. This is a great book (amd Scott Pilgrim)to indtroduce somebody to comic books, especially somebody not into super heroes. Support the Great comics you read even when you can read them free online!

What if...? 20 Jan. 2012
By Agustin Goba - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Warren Ellis has created a post-apocalyptic England where the new and the old clash in perfect proportion. Imagine the children of Village of the Damned have grown up... The story, in inimitable Ellis style, features not just physical conflicts with enemy powers, but also the day-to-day conflicts of personalities trying to get along with each other while exploring amazing powers that even their owners can't fully understand. Top off the story with the gorgeous art of Paul Duffield and you have one of the best graphic novels of all time. These are the kinds of books that make me jealous of anyone getting to read them for the first time, because you never know what you are going to find when you turn the next page. Enjoy!
And yes it is as good as that sounds 23 Nov. 2014

A more modern midwich cuckoos.
And yes it is as good as that sounds.
Once again Warren Ellis mixes issues of survival, trust, family and history into a sci-fi tale that leaps of its pages with likable (and not so likeable) characters.
Incredible series 29 May 2010
By T.Laco - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I read the complete series off of [...] and HAD to buy the books. Incredible series, funny, great drawing. Plus the book is big enough to actually read (unlike some other print webcomics *cough*CAD*cough*). Can't wait for Volume 4.
