Now's a good time to go back and dive into FreakAngels, a free online tale by graphic-novel superstar Warren Ellis, illustrated by relative newcomer Paul Duffield. When we first blogged about it in February, there wasn't much to read. But the story is now up to nearly 120 pages. The science-fiction premise has been explained: Something happened to change the nature of time. The 20th-century theory that time is an artificial construct in our minds no longer holds. There's a 3-minute delay in the fabric of the universe between London and the Suffolk Coast. London is partly underwater. But most important, there's a tribe of 23-year-old hotties with steampunk helicopters and psychic powers. Their romantic and sexual hookups = Random Play + It's Complicated. FreakAngels is guaranteed to hold you over until Melissa's next post.
