Warren Goddamn Ellis. How does he do it? Science Fiction written really well, while half the writing is just swear words, really.

I like stories that involve dystopian futures and wibbily wobbly timey wimey stuff. Especially if they involve Doctor Who references. So, naturally, Freakangels was a fantastic read - Not least because of these things, but more because the characters evoke so many visceral reactions within you, while the story takes turns that are hard to digest, because the character
freakangels is a finished (and free) post-apocalyptic webcomic written by warren ellis and drawn by paul duffeld. i remember following it in 2010 or so and wandering away between updates; now it's been finished and i've had a lot of fun reading it to the end. it's pretty self-contained and very nicely paced, there's a cool premise (basically, what if midwich cuckoos grew up?) and an interesting plot and character development to follow up on me, and even a half-decent attempt at diversity.

I read the entire series online over the course of a day (available free and legally at, and will be buying the graphic novels when I've got the funds. This is a fantastic comic, excellently written by Warren Ellis and amazingly drawn and colored by Paul Duffield et al. More than anything it's a story about people growing up, taking responsibility for their actions, and trying to make good. And having super powers. And living after the end of the world.

It's a bi

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

Just as good as when I first read it online. I love this story, and the characters, and the beautiful art and KK's goddamn bike and Karl's garden and Kirk's attitude.

And it's COMPLETE, you know. Which is rare, and awesome.

Post-apocalyptic society rebuilding with superpowers and interpersonal drama, all deftly told in just six volumes. What's not to like?

Thirteen principle characters seems unwieldy, but Ellis manages to give them all unique voices and important roles in the story.

His depiction of life in post-apocalyptic flooded London is fun and steampunky.

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.

I read this online, and couldn't, um, put it down. The storyline is gripping, the characters engaging, and the art is magnificent. Excellent!
