In preparation for the February launch of his new webcomic Freakangels, comic writer and self-styled "internet Jesus" Warren Ellis has started a new online community to support it. Whitechapel is, according to Ellis:
not a comics-centric place, though there's plenty of space for that. But I've also created space for Second Lifers, the steampunk/retropunk crowd, the people who like following the mad science and signs of the apocalypse, music and art etc.
Of course, this being a Warren Ellis board, expect to have to wade through camgirls and sycophants to get to the good stuff. [Whitechapel]
