Twenty-three years ago, twelve strange children were born in England at exactly the same moment. Six years ago, they used their psychic powers in unison and accidentally flooded the world. Today, they live in and defend Whitechapel, perhaps the last real settlement in soggy London, from the evil machinations of one of their own – a “Freakangel” gone rogue. But when Mark, t ...more

Lately, with irritating frequency, I end up reading the a series of books or comics, enjoying the hell out of it, then being let down by the ending.

Sometimes this is because a series gets canceled. Which sucks all around and isn't the author's fault. (Firefly.)

Sometimes the ending merely leaves me with a profound sensation of "meh." And while the intellectual equivalent of a shrug is not a terrible thing in itself, it's a pisser of a way to end a story that I've enjoyed and devoted time, money

Too bad it's over, I want more.

Since it's writer is Warren Ellis, author of Transmetopolitan one of my favorite graphic novels I had high expectations and I wasn't disappointed.

It definitively goes to my favorite graphic novel list along with Saga, Fables and Transmetropolitan.

Okay. If this had been a novel, I'm not sure how I would have felt about it. You're dropped in a post-apocalyptic world with minimal information. Eventually you learn how the world came to be the way it was. There are some conflicts. The rising action suddenly crescendos as you learn even more about the breaking of the world and the ante gets upped all at once. And then...the story ends. There is resolution, but not much of it. There is denouement, but not really or everyone, and not in a comple ...more

Like all final books in a beloved series there are lots of revelations, storylines are tied up, and the ending is a controversial one. It seems the end of the world brought about by the Freakangels was not the end of the world… entirely, and the Freakangels decide to do something equally massive with their powers but this time for constructive purposes not destructive. And some of the Freakangels get drunk and hook up.

It’s hard to talk about the aspects of the plot as it’d just give awa

I was just browsing the online library SWAN catalog, thinking I'd pick up a few things by Warren Ellis and stumbled across al six volumes of FreakAngels. What's this? How had I not heard about this? Oh, because I don't ever pay attention to anything Avatar puts out. No wonder it passed by me just like Gravel did years ago.

Honestly, after the first volume I would have given up on it completely had I not checked out the entire series. I figured I'd push on through as long as it was here, why not?

Ich denke, allein der Umstand, dass ich in den letzten 12 Stunden kaum etwas anderes getan habe, als an diesem Comic zu lesen, zeigt meine Begeisterung für die Reihe. Ich habe mich relativ schnell in sie verliebt und obwohl ich heute andere Pläne hatte, konnte und konnte ich einfach nicht aufhören zu lesen - bis ich durch war.

Ich liebe die Geschichte der 12 Menschen mit besonderen Fähigkeiten, die langsam erst im Laufe der Geschichte zu begreifen scheinen, dass sie einander brauchen und dass sie

I have some mixed feelings about how the series ended. I do like (view spoiler) but I don't like that it took them six years to even think of doing it. We don't see their initial reactions at the time, but I can buy that they were scared kids unsure of their limits. But they never even tried? I did like that not everything was tied up with a bow, and that there were a lot of unresolved issues left. (What happens next in London? And w ...more

This is pretty much the only way it COULD end, but it was weird and talky and... pretty much a Freakangels ending, actually. It was also effing awesome. I don't even know what to say, I'm mostly just sad there's no more.

**This contains my quick thoughts on the series (with NO SPOILERS). I am putting it under Vol 1 and 6 until I have time to write full reviews for each volume.**

FreakAngels is a webcomic written by well known comic book author Warren Ellis. It is dark and graphic at times - as posted on the site, recommended for mature audiences. It is a complete, overarching story spanning six print trade paperbacks worth of comics and really must be read from the beginning.

At some point I'll go back and review

... and we get to the end. What can I say ? Go and read it. This is one of the more beautiful comics I've ever read. Simply perfect.

I will miss the freakangels, but, as cheesy as it sounds, this characters will be forever in my mind. I loved them.

Whole series : 5/5

I love this series, and it's something I have been wanting to read for some time. This is a webcomics classic, and we discussed it on a recent episode of the podcast: http://comicsalternative.com/webcomic....

Det är inget bra tecken att man är glad att serien är över, en serie som blir sämre och sämre för varje nummer. Sista delen handlar i stort sett bara om att Freak Angels ska komma överens om att rädda världen. The End.

I enjoyed the series overall, but this conclusion was a little disappointing-lots and lots of sitting around talking and then a sudden solution to everything. I probably shouldn't have read it right after reading the whiz-bang action-packed 11th volume of Fables, which was also a conclusion of sorts. A much better one, in my opinion.

I had given it 2 stars at first but bumped it up to 3 for the artwork, especially the panels when the kids were operating on full mojo.

I, this series was amazing. It had some flaws (they wanted to blow up Northampton, seriously not cool) but it was a great read, and the art was awesome.

As an ending, maybe this was a bit, I don't know, odd, but it felt like the right ending for the series. It was the kind of ending that left me wanting more (more Alice, more of the FreakAngels, more of the world) but was, in light of not getting more, a ending that did the job.

So, I really do love this series. There are some fascinating characters, and also some great themes at work. There appears to be some kind of strange Jesus allegory at work here: that we, as people, don't deserve any kind of messiah or saving, mostly because we wouldn't be able to handle it. Which, for some reason, is an idea that fascinates me. Just excellent, thought-provoking stuff. Absolutely worth reading.

I can't believe it's over! I've been following this series for quite awhile now, so to see the words 'the end' seems almost impossible.

A fantastic series, simply amazing and I thought the ending was beautifully done. I had no idea how they were going to wrap it all up, but the way they did it, with a little ambiguity and more unsaid than said, worked perfectly with the story.
Ren
Generally a solid conclusion. Although, I have to say, I'm not entirely sure I like how they dealt with /actual rapist/ Luke, and I'm feeling pretty lukewarm about (view spoiler) being a thing. Also, Alice is the true MVP and I'm salty that it looks like they won't see her again.

I think this might rank right up there with Global Frequency as some of my favorite Ellis works. I also think, like Scott Pilgrim, you have to read all six books in one setting. The fact that Ellis put this all up for free on the internet is awesome.
Shanna
Bloody rediculously awesome! Only downside is WHAT HAPPENS TO THE FREAKANGELS IN THE DAMN FUTURE????? Otherwise, it was unbelievable violent, humorous, good fun. Will be looking forward to more Warren Ellis.

I will miss the FreakAngels. A nice series, well drawn, interesting and engaging, with a bit of humor. I could see this being made into a movie. Hope some of the other online series are as entertaining.

A very satisfying conclusion to the Freakangels story, providing resolution, restitution, forgiveness and character growth. I intend to keep an eye out for both author and artist.

I really liked the concept, art and dialogue in this series, but the ending just didn't quite satisfy me. The rest was super enjoyable though.
