Read full description of the books:
The Apocalypse... Done Right!
“23 years ago, twelve strange children were born in England at exactly the same time.
6 years ago, the world ended.
This is the story of what happened next.”
That’s how it all starts, and then hints are dropped that those twelve strange children may somehow be responsible for the end of the world as we know it: they felt radical change was needed...
I read this first volume once before several years ago and liked it a lot, but my library back then did not have the other volumes and so I never read on. A few days ago, I finally stumbled upon the complete six-volume set—hooray for my library! I know, this was originally a webcomic, I’m afraid I just can’t get used to those...
Anyway. Rereading this book now, I am amazed at how well I still remember the main characters and their world—especially considering my generally bad memory! That’s well-conceived, effective, memorable character- and worldbuilding for ya, no matter how free-spirited and spontaneous it all feels.
Writer Warren Ellis and artist Paul Duffield have created the rare exception to the rule: a post-apocalyptic story that feels organic and vivid rather than gimmicky and overblown; even the supernatural and the outrageous are treated rather casually. As a result, the post-apocalyptic world of FreakAngels actually comes to life—and you realize how much potential the genre really has!
Bottom line: it’s fooking brilliant is what it is.
