It’s Friday, which means time for a Friday Fun Thread. Friday, at least in my life, also means a new installment of Freak Angels – the weekly web comic by Warren Ellis (writer) and Paul Duffield (illustrator). Today it reached its 131st episode. You can read from episode one over at FreakAngels.com.
Hanna introduced me to the comic a couple of years ago and I freely admit it’s become addictive. The basic set-up is this:
23 years ago twelve strange children were born in England at exactly the same moment.
6 years ago, the world ended.
This is the story of what happened next.
We have a cast of “freaks” (the cohort of twelve) who’ve established a post-apocalyptic haven for survivors in the Whitechapel district of a flooded London. There are wonderful gadgets, great characters, there’s angst, violence, and general psychic wackiness. If you want inspiration for your next steampunk outfit, you really need look no further than KK’s flying gear.
