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 live in and defend Whitechapel, maybe the last real settlement in flooded London. The Freakangels have lived in fear of the return of Mark, the twelfth of their kind, whose psychic powers far exceed their own. N...more

So after that pretty awesome cliffhanger in Volume 3, the 4th book opens with.. a flashback! Part of me was annoyed because I needed to know what was going to happen immediately. My first thought was, "MAN! I'm glad I wasn't reading this on a week to week basis". However, once I realized the flashback was finally going to give me some information about how the world ended up in the state it's currently in, I was satisfied.

The fourth entry in the Freakangels saga is a pretty awesome one and may b...more

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...more

Okay, I just reviewed Freakangels 3 so if you want the broad strokes see that review. Rather than repeat myself about the pacing (Freakangels 4 covers the same day as Freakangels 3, going from afternoon to evening), I'll focus on the specifics of this book. The first half of the book is a flashback explaining how the world ended, what... the Freakangels did to cause it, all that back story. Necessary and it has it's good points, even some good artwork, but, again because of the pacing and the fo...more

This is where I actually stopped reading FreakAngels weekly -- or rather, I stopped right before the cliffhanger at the end of book 3 because I had a few mad weeks where I couldn't get to it online, and that took the edge off. So I didn't pick it back up, deciding instead to wait for the TPBs now I'd kicked the habit.

Thank god I did, seeing the first bit of this TPB. For me, it was awesome to finally get the backstory bit. Loved it. If I'd been reading weekly, I would've probably punched somethi...more
I should have seen that coming...but I didn't.
Not too much to say about this one - an awesome (if somewhat anticipated) ending to this part of the very ongoing story. Reading it all at once somewhat negates the frustration of going from a massive cliffhanger at the end of book 3 to what must have been nearly two months of flashbacks before the cliffhanger was attended to, and the backstory is definitely nice to have. In fact, the whole volume is full of nice moments, that just can't come quickly enough, dammit.

I obviously LOVE LOVE LOVE this series. Everything that's in print went on my Christmas list. Extremely glad that W.E. is planning to continue the free series at least through book 6... Now I'm just among the rest who have to wait for the weekly installments, since I'm all caught up now. Aww. Boo. Can't wait for more!

surprised that it was willing to go back and fill in the moments leading to the apocalypse.

Finally getting used to the art. Each page is divided into quarters and the storytelling is real slow and clear. The artist can get some very subtle effects but man is there not a lot of story in each issue.

Warren Ellis continues to impress with this series. As we look headlong into the debt crisis, I find myself thinking that, you know, maybe the Freakangels and the Authority have it right. I dunno ... it's good stuff.
These just get better and better, with story arcs and character developments that I can't put down.

(a.k.a. Gahhhh! What happens next? What happens next?!?)
This is the best of them so far - gives a bit of the back story and fleshes out the characters. I'm truly enjoying this series.
Loved the concept, characters, and artwork. Great stuff, only sad the series didn't go longer and take a few more side trips.
Another excellent volume. The flashback stuff was great, and the cliffhanger at the end was REALLY great. I love this series.
Finally, a little of the backstory revealed. Tensions mounts amongst the 12. Abilities are enhanced and rivalries exposed.

Volume 3 ended with a cliff-hanger and Volume 4 opens with 6 years ago. That's just mean.
Still going strong. Violence, action, super-power driven, crazy ride.
best comic series going, and its free.
