    I was specifically searching for a good post-apocalyptic webcomic that I could read for free (I'm on a post-apoc kick lately). FREAKANGELS is a real page-clicker; I discovered it just this morning and am halfway caught up. Bravo, gents!

    I was sitting here thinking about how much I enjoyed Supergod so far, and wiki'd Warren Ellis and found this.

    A good friend of mine was showing off some new comic book he had (I can't remember the name of it now, lol) and he wouldn't let everyone look at it, but he let me cause we're close and in the very back, there was an add for the FA website. Neither of us knew what it was so I checked it out and now I'm officially hooked ;)

    A friend on another board mentioned it and I looked it up. hooked ever since.

    I found Freakangels from an ad on a different webcomic I read. I can't remember if it was The Phoenix Requiem, Girls With Slingshots, or something else. But it took me maybe 4 days to read up til the newest chapter (I was sick for the last one, so there was quite a lot of uninterrupted reading time). I've been telling my friends about it, too. :)

    I found it from watching Attack Of The Show on G4 Tv. I'm glad I decided to check it out. :)

    A friend of mine asked me if I liked graphic novels. I said I did.
    Mouth gapes wide and read it all in one day. <.<
    I wish I wasn't so impatient, sometimes. <.<

    I'm trying to find ANY way to nab one of those black FA field bags with the white markings on it. They're always sold out. Anything anyone knows about that for me? :(

    I searched "Steampunk webcomic" and I got this. I'm glad I found this!

    I followed a link off Girl Genius, and read myself to the then current comic. I was raving about Freakangels to my older daughter, and she asked if I had ever seen Transmetropolitan. She has been a Warren Ellis fan for a long time, and passed along ALL of Transmetropolitan for me to read and return, on threat of pain if I lost or ruined any of them. I have enjoyed British dystopia science fiction, steampunk, and such since I can remember. I only began reading graphic novels a couple of years ago. I read underground comix back in the sixties, and this stuff is like that, but with better art and stories!

    My webcomic addicted best friend told me of it and I read right through in one night, work the next day be damned!

    I read about it on Avatar's website, I was also in the audience in San Diego when Warren Ellis and publisher William A. Christensen made the annoucement.

    I googled Warren Ellis because I missed Transmetropolitan and needed an Ellis fix. (I stumbled across lots of other stuff too and am very happy I live near Forbidden Planet.)

    Right so this is a little messed up...I was looking for a recipe for Tea Wine and stumbled upon the discussion thread on this board. I've never heard of the creators to my knowledge, altho I did have a pretty serious webcomic addiction back in my college days. But anyway I poked around the forum for a while until I got curious as to what this FREAKANGELS thing was everyone kept talking about, clicked on the link, and about five hours later came up for air. WOW!

    tldr: Tea Wine

    through the playlist section of the saturday times.
    caught my eye as it's the only time've ever seen a webcomic mentioned in the paper.
    kept the issue, looking at it now, it's been two days shy of a year since i started reading freakangels.
    it's been a good year!

    Started following Warren Ellis on twitter because of someone's follow friday recommendation, followed an update post of his here. I LOVE post-apoc fiction so it was perfect for me. I was unemployed at the time so I read the whole damn thing in three days in blocks of about two to three hours at a time. I like to read comics slow and look at all the pretty pictures. I'm totally addicted, even bought the first graphic novel version from my local indy comic store that features a whole rack of only Warren Ellis titles. Free comics on the web are nice, but it's a totally different and much more satisfying experience to hold it in your hands.

    I first discovered Freakangels from an advertisement from Anna Mercury #1, way back in 2008. My LCS store had a few boxes of discounted issues, so I ended up spending $5 on Anna Mercury #1, Gravel # 0-2, and one of the Thunderbolts issues.

    I started out checking to see if Lovecraft is Missing'd started up again - it hasn't - and somehow ended up here.

    As a Scouse Englishman - almost a contradiction in terms - I'm a particular fan of the unholy triumvirate of Morrison, Ellis & Moore, and although I wasn't keen on the Freakangels as a name, or the APPARENT unoriginality of the concept after reading the first page, I told myself it wouldn't do any harm to read one more page - something I've been spending the last few hours telling myself over and over again!

    Ellis, you're a master story tellin' bastard - I hope y'deathsticks give y'cancer, 'cause now I'm hooked, y'sod!

    I'm pretty sure off an ad in one of Warren's comics. Doktor Sleepless, maybe.

    2000AD chaps kept referring to the art compos on here and then I started clicking on the other links. Found FA. Got happy. Read all but last three episodes in one go. Retired with major headache and a comics-crush on Connor.
