    "Fook" did come across us a tad immature at first. Immature in that it seemed to avoid using "fuck", which of course it wasn't, but it did make me question its usage and therefore detract from the story, which I'm sure wasn't intended.
    [An aside: My wife works in a junior school (not as a teacher). A phonetics specialist was in her classroom yesterday. One of the first things she asked the kids was, could they come up with a word that ended in "uck"!]
    I think it is inevitable that an author's characters are going to appear similar, particularly if the author is very prolific. If an author is successful then it's probably because their readers like their characters, as much as the stories being told.

    Another Raymond Chandler character making with the wisecracks! Whatever shall I do?

    Don't know if this has been suggested, but have you guys thought about having a cover page in the begining of the chapters? This would keep people who are coming in a few issues behind or just starting to read from inadvertantly catching little pieces of plot that are on the first page as they enter the site.

    Really I just want to see some more of that fantastic art every week because i'm selfish...

    As is his way, Warren is also Throwing A Full One.

    I can't wait to see where this goes. Bravo.

    I love the depiction of Alice - without the accent I would still have figured her as a Manc from the trainers-sans-socks, urban camo, smack-addict eyes, and that jaw... and, of course, the United shirt... it's a brilliant caricature of the (usually) affectionate prejudice we have between cities, and between districts too (I'm with KK on the Lambeth thing!). Wonder what'll get dropped on people from Highbury?

    There are humans in Highbury?

    That reminds me of a lovely old football song:

    My old man said
    "Be an Arsenal fan"
    I said
    Shit fuck bugger you're a cunt
