    At its core, this is a story about power, guilt and responsibility Kinda like Spidey, that s right The FreakAngels are far guiltier than Peter Parker ever was, though, and so what really comes to mind while reading this is the role of so called first world countries in the devastation of the planet and of so called third world countries in particular, andspecifically the current refugee crisis in Europe In other words, FreakAngels is the kind of science fiction dystopia that becomes m At its core, this is a story about power, guilt and responsibility Kinda like Spidey, that s right The FreakAngels are far guiltier than Peter Parker ever was, though, and so what really comes to mind while reading this is the role of so called first world countries in the devastation of the planet and of so called third world countries in particular, andspecifically the current refugee crisis in Europe In other words, FreakAngels is the kind of science fiction dystopia that becomesrelevant by the minute It is also one of the most thoughtful, nuanced, sincere and best comics Warren Ellis has written to date read it already

    In Volume 3, The FreakAngels have brought in and put to work several refugees Staying the course and rebuilding Whitechapel, the FreakAngels are trying to undo the pain and suffering they initially caused However, along with the exiled Mark, Luke is beginning to realize the sheer scope of their powers Breaking the one rule , Luke sits on the verge of ex communication Can the FreakAngels rebound from Luke s treason and can Whitechapel return to its past glory In the age of the digital web co In Volume 3, The FreakAngels have brought in and put to work several refugees Staying the course and rebuilding Whitechapel, the FreakAngels are trying to undo the pain and suffering they initially caused However, along with the exiled Mark, Luke is beginning to realize the sheer scope of their powers Breaking the one rule , Luke sits on the verge of ex communication Can the FreakAngels rebound from Luke s treason and can Whitechapel return to its past glory In the age of the digital web comic, it s hard to believe that work of this calibre is being given away for free Granted, if you want the hardcover collectors edition, you ve got to shell out a few dollars This isn t to say that in terms of quality, stuff like The Oatmeal, Cyanide and Happiness or Toothpaste for Dinner isn t up to par with Ellis epic it just feels like this series deserves to be paid for With Volume 3, the series begins to take a turn towards darkness We re exposed to what the FreakAngels are capable of through a pretty disgusting act by Luke I won t spoil it for you but it s deplorable to say the least.Comics like FreakAngels is why I could never become a weekly reader I simply love devouring series back to back to back monthly or bi weekly issues could never work for me If Volume 4,5 and 6 are just as good as the first 3, you re looking at a ridiculously solid series I may or may not be getting these books for free from my local library

    Like many other post apocalyptic stories, where humans strive to survive in a normal community, humanity rears its ugly head Ellis examines a little bit of basic survival issues including food and water needs as the population rises, butimportantly what happens when one orpeople decide not to play by the rules How do those in charge deal with bad elements And just what happens when those in charge have psychic powers That pretty much sums up Volume 3 Still very interesting a Like many other post apocalyptic stories, where humans strive to survive in a normal community, humanity rears its ugly head Ellis examines a little bit of basic survival issues including food and water needs as the population rises, butimportantly what happens when one orpeople decide not to play by the rules How do those in charge deal with bad elements And just what happens when those in charge have psychic powers That pretty much sums up Volume 3 Still very interesting and I m not sure where this is heading and that s good

    The story of the Freakangels goes into darker territory in the third book when one of the survivors they rescued in the second book is found murdered in the style of Jack the Ripper Also Luke is caught raping one of the survivors and the Freakangels discuss whether executing him is the right way to go That is, until Mark shows up and all Hell breaks loose Warren Ellis continues to impress with this amazing story of a dozen psychic young people with incredible powers living in and rebuilding a The story of the Freakangels goes into darker territory in the third book when one of the survivors they rescued in the second book is found murdered in the style of Jack the Ripper Also Luke is caught raping one of the survivors and the Freakangels discuss whether executing him is the right way to go That is, until Mark shows up and all Hell breaks loose Warren Ellis continues to impress with this amazing story of a dozen psychic young people with incredible powers living in and rebuilding a post apocalyptic Whitechapel an apocalypse they seemingly brought about The voices of the characters all sound genuine and Ellis s dialogue brings them all to life as if they were real people Paul Duffield s artwork is always brilliant in these books Large panels, sometimes 2 to a page, show a wonderfully rendered backdrop to the manga esque characters At times it feels like watching Ghibli film, the actions are drawn so intuitively and fluidly I love these characters and this world and even when there s not a lot going on and it s simply Karl the Gardener showing ordinary people how to irrigate land or Arkady the super powerful psychic savant playing with chickens, it s still a mesmerising read Throw in the excellent storylines that builds to a crescendo by the end of the book and you ve got a masterwork of modern comics Only, make sure you have Vol 4 handy as Vol 3 ends on fantastic note which ll make you want to start reading the next book immediately

    Funny how something that took about 6 months to read by 6 page Friday installment ends up not muchthan half an hour when you have it in book form It can be less frustrating this way even, for some reason, the cliff hanger ending doesn t bother me so much at the end of the book as I thought it would, but it can also be less rewarding not to get the enforced time to dwell on each set of 6 pages that the weekly format gives you There is a bunch of stuff that happens in the middle, and a Funny how something that took about 6 months to read by 6 page Friday installment ends up not muchthan half an hour when you have it in book form It can be less frustrating this way even, for some reason, the cliff hanger ending doesn t bother me so much at the end of the book as I thought it would, but it can also be less rewarding not to get the enforced time to dwell on each set of 6 pages that the weekly format gives you There is a bunch of stuff that happens in the middle, and a lotset up for a hell of a 4th book, hopefully, so I m hoping that it will all pay off.Who am I kidding How can Warren Ellis not pay off Anyway, it s very very nice to be able to read pages without scrolling, so if you can wait or want to reread, reading it by book is better than online

    I really dig this one because it s where the interpersonal stuff starts to get super screwed Part of that is just seeing how truly mad Kait is Haha, Quincy , which makes me happy Also, seriously, her and Miki Maaaaan And then her and Arkady It s the law Looooove.But I also think a huge part of my love for this one is the egg chicken discussion between Jack and Connor which for some reason makes me unreasonably happy.Actually, I think what this whole collected book really is, is proof I really dig this one because it s where the interpersonal stuff starts to get super screwed Part of that is just seeing how truly mad Kait is Haha, Quincy , which makes me happy Also, seriously, her and Miki Maaaaan And then her and Arkady It s the law Looooove.But I also think a huge part of my love for this one is the egg chicken discussion between Jack and Connor which for some reason makes me unreasonably happy.Actually, I think what this whole collected book really is, is proof that between Ellis s dialogue and timing and Duffield s art, these two could pretty much vamp with absurd conversation for an entire book and I d eat it up with a spoon and laugh my head off.Oh yeah, and I think stuff happens in this one too Or, I should say, it begins to happen Like, for real this time
