Official Press Release

"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."

Starting today, writer Warren Ellis and artist Paul Duffield begin the

FREAKANGELS serial -- a new, weekly webcomic offered free online from

Avatar Press. Each weekly installment of six full-color pages will

follow the story of the titular Freakangels, twelve unrelated young

people living some years from now in a flooded England. The lives of

the Freakangels take a sharp turn when a girl from Manchester named

Alice shows up with a shotgun and a grievance. You see, she's met the

twelfth, prodigal Freakangel, who had very different ideas of what

they should do with themselves in this flooded future England...

Visit http://freakangels.com to read the first six pages of this

exciting new serial, and bookmark the link! Be sure to swing by the

Whitechapel forum and discuss the comic (or any number of other

topics). Freakangels and the Whitechapel forum are both free and


FREAKANGELS, the story of what happened next, begins Friday, February 15 and

updates every Friday with a new episode from Warren Ellis and Paul Duffield.
