Collecting the final chapter of Warren Ellis’ enormously popular web comic, a tale of twelve psychic Londoners whose combined powers flooded the world! Twenty-three years ago, twelve strange children were born in England at exactly the same moment. Six years ago, they used their psychic powers in unison and accidentally flooded the world. Today, they live in and defend Whitechapel, perhaps the last real settlement in soggy London, from the evil machinations of one of their own – a “Freakangel” gone rogue. But when Mark, the bad seed, returns and forces his old friends to expand their consciousness beyond all concepts of space and time, they discover there’s something coming… something dark and terrible beyond the borders of Whitechapel, closing in for the kill. Writer Warren Ellis and artist Paul Duffield proudly present the last stand of the Freakangels in this final, gorgeous sixth volume of the 2010 Eagle Award-winning online web comic!

A young cop in 1830’s London is hot on the trail of Captain Swing and his band of Electrical Pirates, futuristic villains who sail the very sky! From the sparking-mad mind of Warren Ellis, the creator of TRANSMETROPOLITAN and PLANETARY, comes an electrical romance of a pirate utopia thwarted! In the London of 1830, newly-minted copper Charlie Gravel keeps seeing things he's not supposed to: a crooked Bow Street Runner with a flintlock revolver, high-flying vessels that are not supposed to fly, and the violent Scientific Phantasmagoria popularly known as Spring-Heeled Jack. With the coming of Captain Swing and his Electrical Pirates, history shall never be the same! This crackling new graphic novel is illustrated by Raulo Caceres in a stunning woodcut style, capturing the classic literary feel from days of yore.
A collection of commentaries on comics and culture by graphic novelist Warren Ellis, creator of TRANSMETROPOLITAN and PLANETARY. From Warren Ellis, the creator of PLANETARY and TRANSMETROPOLITAN, comes one of the internet's most influential commentaries on comic books, culture, and beyond. Warren Ellis' e-mail column "Bad Signal" shows that he is a modern master of the short form essay, as his biting wit makes even the most esoteric of topics into must-read material. By his own admission, BAD SIGNAL is Warren Ellis on the move, emptying his head of thoughts and shoving them into a handheld computer with a wireless modem plugged into it, so that he can instantly bug four thousand people with useless e-mail from public toilets all over the world. This second volume collects his humorous and insightful columns from 2002-2003.
