Book Description

15 Jun 2010 FreakAngels (Book 4)
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 are living in and defending Whitechapel, maybe the last real settlement in flooded London. They've made a new friend, and together they successfully defended their home from raiders - but the post-apocalyptic drowned London that the eleven Freakangels survive in is never a safe place, and never surrounded by friends. In fact, there's a serial killer stalking in their midst, and one of their own has broken their most valued rule. Volume Four of award-winning author Warren Ellis' ongoing web comic, Freakangels, is here! This installment collects the entire fourth arc of the post-apocalyptic saga into 144 gorgeous, full-color pages.

5.0 out of 5 stars Angels on the run 4 July 2012
By Sam Quixote TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
SPOILERS

The fourth volume in this excellent series hits the ground running and doesn't stop until the final page. The Freakangels are in turmoil: Mark is back from the wilderness with murder in his eyes and Luke is on the run after shooting Kirk. This book is also the first time we see the Freakangels before they ended the world - and how they did it. Flashbacks go back to their 14th birthdays followed by the time they're being hunted by the government, to the moment when Mark suggests they link together and do something BIG to escape persecution - something like flood London.

Warren Ellis and Paul Duffield can't seem to write a bad Freakangels book, each one is better than the last. The pacing is perfect with action being the order of the day as we see Freakangels in a corner and then battling amongst each other as they figure out who they are and why they are the way they are. The story becomes even more interesting as Ellis slowly pulls back the curtain to reveal more about their abstract powers and hinting at a larger, deeper storyline. It's all very sci-fi, kind of like the film "Chronicle" crossed with "Akira" set in JG Ballard's "Drowned World" - in other words, three kinds of awesome.

This series should be adapted for TV, it'd be a huge hit and Duffield's large panels make it seem like you're reading a TV show/movie. But seeing as it's not, pick up the books instead which are utterly brilliant books and are quickly becoming one of my favourite comics series I've ever read. Fans of Warren Ellis need to read this, Freakangels is his masterpiece, and anybody interested in comics should check these books out, they're too good to be overlooked.

Regardless of how long you have been waiting for this volume you want the cliff-hanger from the last one resolved. Ellis being the maestro that he is makes you wait but gives you something even more exciting. He flashes back to the main event and you get to see what happened. `See,' being the operative word as you watch things unravel in a beautiful and imaginative series of silent frames.

This is a riveting and compelling read with a fast pace and moments of real drama. Ellis also shows you the world isn't as black and white as people think it is. His antagonists aren't cartoon stereotypes but complex people on different paths.

The art is superb with a lot of skilful and imaginative touches boldly crammed in. There are three time periods here and each of the characters is present at a different age. All of them are distinct and identifiable and it is great to see our beloved characters as children.

Absolutely brilliant in all ways so it has to be a Double Thumbs Up!

5.0 out of 5 stars How we ended the world 9 Aug 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I just love this postapocalyptic comic- the combinations od the delightfully pleasant art of paul duffield, soft and gemtly drawn, and the cynic, harsh storytelling of Ellis makes for an unique masterpiece. here the estranged Freakangel, Mark, returns, but we first see how teen freakangels, hunted and persecuted, tried to scare away they persecutors...with unwittimgly global results.
Mark returns boasting his powers and making exaggerated demands, whilst Luke the pariah, having escaped Kait's pit, is hunted by Jack and Alice. A volume full of dramatic situations and uncanny events. I recommednd it!

5.0 out of 5 stars When we made the world end 16 Aug 2010
By Ventura Angelo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
volume four will reveal how it all began (and ended). Poor supenormal kids hunted like criminals defend themselves and try to make a point...but the exercise of their full power will bring about, unwittingly, the end of the world as we knew it. And back to flooded london, an unexpected return, when Arcady sees in the future, Luke meets its end (really?) and Karl takes care of the weather. Mili the Doctor will have a field day, as Sirkka's love for Jack is put to a fatal strain and Connor leaves home.
A magnificent portrait of the Post-apocalypse you won't want to stop reading!

5.0 out of 5 stars What if...? 20 Jan 2012
By Agustin Goba - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
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!
