And yes it is as good as that sounds.
Once again Warren Ellis mixes issues of survival, trust, family and history into a sci-fi tale that leaps of its pages with likable (and not so likeable) characters.
The characters of the Freakangels are what I love best about this series. Warren Ellis imbues them with individual characteristics and has them interact so easily, I completely buy that they're best friends with a long history behind them. There's also hints of how they ended the world and the variety of their powers, which suggests adventures of the kind of large scale Ellis is used to dealing with in series like "The Authority" and "Planetary".
Paul Duffield's drawing style continues to enthral. He uses large panels per page so the maximum number is four and often is just two or three, allowing for more detail per page and a kind of cinematic quality to the books. There's also a few scenes where the Freakangels go on the hunt for their supposed assassins and the way he draws them makes them look like a scene from the "Village of the Damned".
"Volume 2" is an excellent sequel to the first one, adding more to the saga of these fascinating characters the increasingly more doomed world they inhabit. "Freakangels" is quickly becoming one of my favourite Ellis titles and is definitely worth a look if you're a comics fan.
