    Loving the Karl character. Could really feel the scene in this one (and ah, what tantalizing summer memories in the simple drawing of those strawberries!) Wish it would stop snowing here...

    ~Kim - We set up a cousin with a clawfoot bathtub planter. The old tub was cleaned, put on it's side and partially filled with compost, soil and whatnot. Was a heck of a lot of work, but the result was gorgeous.

    Another wonderful installment. True I wish I'd get more meat on the bones, but the flavor is so good I can deal.

    Karl, I like quite a bit. Strawberries are the best treat in a post-apocalyptic world, without a doubt.

    FreakAngels goddamn rules.

    I don't know how far in advance they're making these things, but I find it impressive that Internet Jesus and Friends are on schedule with this even with one man's computer down the shitter.

    I'd be nothing but a dirty hairless ape without my box and/or backups. Made of sterner stuff, he is.

    Terrific. Thank you very much, gentlemen.

    This is just good work. Regardless of format, page count, convention, price, marketplace, style, environment, geoeconomicopolitical sassafrass, just regardless of...

    Powerfully good stuff, and yet another example of, "Why would I do this? How could I not?" that we seem to get more and more of from Mr. Ellis and a few others (like Mr. Duffield, whose star is swelling exponentially, I suspect--we'd all do well to mark the time we saw such a flashpoint in real time).

    Thanks for opening your doors for any and all, guys. And Warren, I know you're on a cyber-island and only able to access the web through some unspeakable Frankenstein-cum-Stevenson coconut based process, but I hope you can soak up the adoration coming your way.

    That tinfoil hat thing is really clever.


    Loved the rainbows, too.

    I think I'd help to end the world if afterwards I got to hang around growing strawberries and wearing a tinfoil hat. Good stuff.

    My favourite episode yet. Nice pacing, pretty artwork.

    I guess if you caught the Lambeth clap, you'd be doing The Lambeth Walk - ho ho
    (Any time you're Lambeth way
    Any evening, any day,
    You 'll find us all
    Doin' the Lambeth walk. ... Oi!)

    just read it again - nicely setting the end-of-the-world scene, few veg around etc., poss of scurvy (what a grim way to go) and KK having to bellow 'cos even telepathic comms won't work sometimes - wonderful! Guess she's off to S next and this way we get introduced to the main characters.

    Karl, I love this character. A gardner who doesn't want anything to do with the freaks he helped destroyed the world with, who also happens to wear a tinfoil hat in order to assure that he isn't bothered by them.

    Greatness Warren.

    Well, I just now joined the site, even though I've been gulping down great big helpings of FreakAngels since it first started. What do I think so far? As usual, Ellis starts off with a whisper instead of a bang, choosing to allow us into the craniums of the important characters before the action sets in. I like the connection between the characters we've met thus far. They really do behave like siblings. Talk like them, expect like them, sneer like them. LOL. I've got four brothers and a sister, all of us adults, so trust me, I know. I'm glad to be sitting alongside the rest of you for this ride. Hopefully, it'll be long and just as entertaining, not to mention just as brilliant, as all of Warren's Kaboost Rides are.

    The writing "speaks" for itself. The art? HOLY SHIT!!!! If it weren't for the fact that this is completely free, I'd make it an everyday task to threaten the writer and the artist with the Nuclear Innard Seeking Harpoon rusting on my living room wall until they killed themselves getting this hyper-excellent shit out five times a month...ya know, if it was being published the usual way, that is to say, on the skin of raped and dead trees.

    LOL.

    Anyway, keep it coming, fellas.

    Pleeeeease?

    The rainbow effect is brilliant.

    Given that Warren speaks often of his garden in the Signal, it's nice to see one integrated to this story.

    Top quality job Messrs Ellis and Duffield. The best and prettiest episode so far and the characters are starting to gel more for me.

    I like that the 20 odd pages thus far have been both decompressed (not in some mad rush to cram exposition up our asses) and yet still been engaging and fulfilling. The webcomic format can lend itself to too much frontloading, but here it feels like the story is being given time to breathe. I also like that each dose is contained, giving us a piece of the larger story but still giving something satisfying all on its own.

    Ten Bells? Whitechapel? Such fun.

    I'm using the RSS gadget on my google page now that i know about it.

    edit: Oh my god, you actually drew in the rainbows from the hose water on page 5, that's amazing!

    I think that detail alone makes it one of the most beautiful comic panels of all time.

    Seriously.

    Never seen that attention paid before.

    The rainbow truly, truly is superb.

    I love the Ten Bells in there, more than I loved the dodgy jaw and Brown eyes on the Mancunian chick from Episode 0002. I haven't been there for a while, but once upon a time (and as I keep posting in various places) it will live in my heart forever because, back when it was still a dodgy old London boozer, I was taken there on a Friday lunchtime by the guys I was doing work experience with. I was young and naive. I thought the pretty girl in a bikini and a tankard full of money was collecting for charity. I thought the big speakers and the pole with a bit of threadbare carpet at its foot was just charming old decor. I didn't worry that everybody else in the pub was about seventy, and I was seventeen. And I'd never had a naked girl on my lap before.

    So imagine my glee. That, and "the wrong side of the river", haha. I live there now. But one day, I shall return...

    I love this show.
