Freakangels Vol. 5
Intended for mature audiences
Volume Five of award-winning author Warren Ellis' ongoing web comic, FREAKANGELS, is here! This installment collects the entire fourth arc of the post-apocalyptic saga into 144 gorgeous, full-color pages. 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 23-year-olds are living in and defending Whitechapel, maybe the last real settlement in flooded London. They've made a new friend, and together they've successfully defended their home from outside attackers, a ghost from the past, and threats from within. In FREAKANGELS: VOLUME FIVE, everything you thought you knew about the 'Angels is wrong. In fact, much of what *they* thought was true simply hadn't been sufficiently examined. While Alice keeps watch over Whitechapel from the watchtower, the twelve Freakangels - that's right, *twelve* - down below are forced to re-examine their lives... and their deaths. Ellis' ongoing story of a flooded London is beautifully illustrated in jaw-dropping detail by Paul Duffield, and every page is as much a work of art as it is a compelling and multi-layered story.
