FreakAngels, Volume 4 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 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 something for them leaving it hanging that long even though one can imagine who it is saying Hello, Kait , still, wow Loved the other flashback even , though In a sappy, Daaawwwww look how cute they were way.Particularly cool moments in this one for Alice and Jack with Luke and then the thing with Arkady and KK and, you know All that Good times It s incredible how these little series of moments have built them all up The plot, though it now seems to have some serious propulsion, is actually still moving quite slowly And it s brilliant A lot of long awaited insight to what actually happened before the world went all post apocalyptic Some tensions get resolved, some new ones are introduced Very, very tight volume I read this one in like half an hour, probably, and now I feel like I ve been through hell and back, just like the characters in the book Man, Warren Ellis sure can write. 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 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 Now He S Back, And His Arrival Forces The Group To Reflect On Their Shared Past A Time When They Used Their Power In Tandem And Flooded The World Presenting, For The First Time, The Tragic History Of The Freakangels The Fourth Chapter In Award Winning Author Warren Ellis Post Apocalyptic Web Comic Series Episodes History is revealed and the tipping point is reached for situation in Whitechapel Lots of stuff happened in this volume It ll be interesting to see just what changes in the relationships between the Freakangels and I still don t know where this will end up which is always a plus. finally get some background info on the angels, which helps with a lot of the relationship context I wish we found out earlier, but the flashbacks were very well done the story continues to surprise, and the art is great I just wish I could distinguish the characters So how did a bunch of silly disaffected teenagers end the world And now that it s ended, is there anything they can do about it Luke s on the rampage, Mark is back and the Freakangles are discovering just how few limits there may be to their powers, which could be awesome or could be terrifying but probably both, and it certainly puts a strain on their relationships with each other. finally, backstory also, I love Arkady. 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 Okay, I just reviewed Freakangels 3 so if you want the broad strokes see that review Rather than repeat

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 four panel breakdown, it seems to go on forever, taking up half the book, or so it seems It should be a quick aside jump to the past, at the height of climax, dramadramadrama, DISASTER back to the story Nope, long conversation, spoken exposition when it s obvious what s going on, and every thirty seconds asking myself, Who s talking Who are you You all have different haircuts and are now completely indistinguishable from one another This should be a pound the pages dramatic story, tons of stuff happens in this book Death, zombies, a shootout You d never realise it from the sense of dissatisfaction that you ve got to the end of ANOTHER book without progressing a single day This is a universe without time apparently 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

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 be the best yet Not only does it contain two rather big events and loads of pretty graphic violence, we re treated to a glimpse into the 14 year old lives of the Freakangels What we re shown makes certain current situations that muchheartbreaking given the personalities that have developed For example, given the general consensus on the outlawed Freakangel Mark, it s hard not to like him in these flashbacks it makes you wonder what went wrong.It s hard to really single out one character but I think I mthan partial to KK Not only does she have the technical know how when it comes to building and creating new machines, she has some pretty great scenes and dialogue I m hoping she grabs a bigger role in the two volumes yet to come.This is turning into quite the series I ve yet to be disappointed over any twists, turns or developments No complaints from me.On to book 5 SPOILERSThe 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

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 together and do something BIG to escape persecution something like flood London.Warren Ellis and Paul Duffield can t seem to write a bad Freakangels book, each one is better than the last The pacing is perfect with action being the order of the day as we see Freakangels in a corner and then battling amongst each other as they figure out who they are and why they are the way they are The story becomes eveninteresting as Ellis slowly pulls back the curtain to revealabout their abstract powers and hinting at a larger, deeper storyline It s all very sci fi, kind of like the film Chronicle crossed with Akira set in JG Ballard s Drowned World in other words, three kinds of awesome.This series should be adapted for TV, it d be a huge hit and Duffield s large panels make it seem like you re reading a TV show movie But seeing as it s not, pick up the books instead which are utterly brilliant books and are quickly becoming one of my favourite comics series I ve ever read Fans of Warren Ellis need to read this, Freakangels is his masterpiece, and anybody interested in comics should check these books out, they re too good to be overlooked
