Freakangels, Vol 6

Hermetic Library fellow T Polyphilus reviews Freakangels, Vol. 6 by Warren Ellis and Paul Duffield.

Warren Ellis Paul Duffield Freakangels Vol 6

This collection concludes the FreakAngels series in what seems retrospectively to be the only possible way. Warren writes what he has to, pretty entertainingly, and Duffield’s art is in fine form. The adoptive FreakAngel steward Alice becomes absolutely key to the story, while the mutants themselves are sequestered in a basement areopagus.

The whole series is an excellent coming-of-age science fiction story for a mature readership. [via]

The story continues to develop interestingly in this volume of FreakAngels, and there’s a little breather from the violence in the earlier parts. The emphasis here is on the FreakAngels’ further exploration of their psychic potential, and a certain amount of reconciliation from their earlier conflicts.

Some of Duffield’s art seems a little rushed by comparison to what has come before–some of the figures are a little out of shape. [via]
