FreakAngels, Vol 2

Hermetic Library Fellow T Polyphilus reviews FreakAngels, Vol. 2 [Amazon, Bookshop, Publisher, Local Library] by Warren Ellis and Paul Duffield, part of the FreakAngels series

Ellis Duffield Freakangels Vol 2

This second volume of FreakAngels charts a turn from mere survival of the Whitechapel clan and their local peasantry, to a more ambitious rebuilding project in the ruins of London. Some new psychic powers are demonstrated, and it turns out that the mutants use the eight-circuit psychological model of Timothy Leary in describing their paranormal interactions with other minds. 

I first noticed in this volume — though it was surely true in the previous one — that each of the FreakAngels has the letter K in his or her name.

The title continues to impress and engage me, and I’m enjoying the leisurely pace of narrative development. I already have the next volume on hand, but I’ll take a little breather before reading it.
