Warren Ellis’ ‘FreakAngels’ Webcomic Launches
The first episode of FreakAngels, the free webcomic created by Warren "I am Internet Jesus" Ellis has finally gone online.
… And there was much rejoicing.
Announced at last year’s Comic-Con International in San Diego, FreakAngels is written by Ellis and illustrated by Paul Duffield. The webcomic is hosted by publisher Avatar Press, who will post a new episode each week on the FreakAngels website.
CBR spoke with Avatar founder William Christensen about FreakAngels and the unique online publishing plan unfolding around the series.
Though other publishers have offered content online, sometimes even new material, “FreakAngels” is perhaps unique in that its creators will be paid as they would if it were a standard, print comic. “After I spent a little time looking around, I realized there hasn’t been much in the way of a focused effort at providing streamlined, quality material,” Christensen said. “We’re not interested in setting up a huge site with a grab-bag of daily strips—Warren and Paul are going to make an amazing serial comic, and we’re going to make sure it’s being produced and displayed as well as anything you’d pick up on a shelf.”
