I read the entire series online over the course of a day (available free and legally at http://www.freakangels.com/?p=23), and will be buying the graphic novels when I've got the funds.

I first read this back when it was coming out in weekly webcomic installments. The experience of reading it all in one go is quite different. I don't know what the pantsing-to-plotting ratio was, but seeing it all laid out in one volume shows how structurally sound this story was, despite coming out 6 pages at a time in its original format. Highly recommended. Incidentally, the entire series remains available for free at www.freakangels.com.

The pacing is optimal for Webcomics. There were moments where I paused and imagined not having the next issue for a week. It was excruciating. I loved it.
