"Twenty-three years ago, twelve strange children were born in England at exactly the same moment. Six years ago, the world ended. This is the story of what happened next." FreakAngels is a new graphic novel published online in weekly installments by Warren Ellis. The zany, dog-hating author is best known for Transmetropolitan, from which Valleywag cribbed the "I Hate it Here" tag and the Spider Jerusalem Award. FreakAngels opened last week with a blackout-drinking young lady and her steampunk helicopter. This week: Shotguns and jerricans. Next week, I predict, something bad happens to puppies.
