What would you do if every day was spent in a struggle for survival against the very people who should be keeping you safe? What would be going through your mind if your own government was relentlessly pursuing you simply because of what you were, of what you might do. And what would you do if the government had every right to logically be hunting you, especially when you consider that you’re not alone, and that all of you together have the ability to knock some people down for good?
Freakangels, by Warren Ellis and Paul Duffield, has a pretty simple concept and plot, but has a tendency to present at least three sides to any argument to you and then leave the difficult choice of which answer is right to you. The premise of Freakangels is simple, and Duffield and Ellis remind us exactly how simple it is at the beginning of every chapter: “23 years ago, twelve strange children were born in England at the exact same moment. Six years ago, the world ended. This is the story of what happens next.”
