Title: FreakAngels Is Ending!
Post by: Rob on January 15, 2011, 12:25:43 PM
I was kind of surprised at first but after thinking about it for a bit it makes sense. FreakAngels isn't a webcomic like we think of our webcomics. It's a project... and an experimental one at that, done by Avatar Press and one of the best known writers in comics (not to mention his amazing art team). So it makes sense that it would end in a much shorter time, at the height of its popularity. Well maybe sense isn't exactly the right word. I guess it seems reasonable is the best way I can put it; since all of the people involved have a rather steady flow of other fish to fry.

The last chapter lead me to believe there was a LOT more to come though. And I wasn't even really thinking about "The End" of the series.

There seems like so much story left to tell. It will be really amazing to see if Ellis can create a satisfying conclusion in a short time with so many narrative possibilities available.

I'll be sorry to see it go.  :'(

Yeah, that bummed me out when I read the chapter intro from a couple weeks ago.  The same kind of realization dawned on me that this isn't something that was meant to go on forever.

I love Freak Angels, and I look forward to it more than anything else each week, but does anyone else feel like there's been like absolutely zero conflict in the plot?  The whole Mark thing happened in the blink of an eye and was completely benign.  Everything else has been sort of anti-climactic.  In my opinion.
