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.

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!

Whilst Jack and Sirkka wrestle in their relationship. KK and Caz reflect on their responsibility in building an infrastructure for Whitechapel in flooded London.Responsibility strongly felt by Miki, the Freakangel Doctor and by Kaiylin. the harsh Freakangel constable and policewoman. In this poetic an dark volume, another attack by a fringe tribe uncannily brings our twelve friends to an act of mercy and charity, strongly imposed by Miki, the real conscience of the group. But the comic and the poetic findsits wayamong the dramatic events. And Arkady is as sweet and surprising as ever.

HASH(0x9566e648) out of 5 stars A postapocalyptic breed of mutants, lovely and/or deadly 11 July 2010
By Ventura Angelo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Like Whyndham's Midwich Kukoos, those violet-eyed mutants were hunted and chased for their powers. Their communal "LEAVE US ALONE" in an outburst of power was so powerful as to unwittingly bring about apocalypse. And now those twelve, in a flooded London. are to come to terms with the world they involuntarily create. They keep the Whitechapel survivors under their protection. Unlike the Midwich Cuckoos, each of them has a different personality, more than often clashing with the others: Connor the androgyne chronicler, the aggressively female engineer KK, the irritable watcher Kirk, the viperine outcast Luke,the spiritually inclined, sweet Arkady, the somewhat sexophobic gardener Karl who wears a tin helmet to avoid other's talk of sex, the scientist Caz, Miki the concerned doctor, Sirkka the group sex expert who keeps an harem of boys and girls, her somewhat estranged lover , the scavenger Jack, and and the paranoid "police officer" Kaitlin, who love "Quincy" And there was a sociopath Mak who was ouste from the group. The story of those persons is inserted in a postapocalypti scenario, marvelously depicted by Duffeld. A magnificent graphic novel!
HASH(0x957117b0) out of 5 stars And off we go... 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! (P.S. Buy the hardbacks; you will want to re-read these...)
HASH(0x9566e8d0) out of 5 stars not as good as the first, but not bad enough to turn me off 4 April 2011
By k. jeigh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
volume 2 of this series was decidedly not as good as the first. i actually had to check it was the same artist as volume 1, 'cuz it was just less visually compelling (though still beautiful, and with a lovely color palette). it's prolly more like a 3.5 star, but i'll round up for keeping me interested enough to get the next one.
builds on previous story and you get to know the characters better, but there is no subtlety to the way things unfold... just BLAM, here's each character's deal. i hear they get better again- i hope so!

If you are a fun, you already know what it is about. If you are not, you are probably about to become one! Excellent work from two masters of the kind. I would not be able to favour either the story or the graphics, they are both amazing. And although anyone can read it for free at the Freakangels site ([...]), for a fun of the spieces it's a must have!
