    The caffeine, it does nothing.* Here, have a comic.

    (*No, Steph, before you ask: Of course I haven't slept. But m1k3y was emailing me at 2am, so I know I'm not the only one keeping odd hours 'round these parts. Anyone missing shut-eye, of late?)

    i slept a whole night for the first time in an aeon. another new flavour with another new character. very cool to start getting even more of an idea of the world and the space it occupies.

    Excellent. That thing is perched on Christ Church Spitalfields! I love the idea the world has reverted to old habits. Great artwork, I realy enjoyed the aerial views of the area.

    Hahahaha - I'm with you on missing shut-eye, but I did manage to grab 6 hours, which is a record as of late. I had good reasons for being awake last night, but a very loaded schedule today. I'm deciding if I hit myself with cocoa or tea for the caffeine - the cup's in the microwave right now.

    Back to FreakAngels - I like the fleshing out of their world, so to speak. I'm more fascinated with the bovines. They aren't cattle like I know them, but they don't quite look like yaks either. Puzzling.

    Winner - Tea.

    And, by seeming like a perfectly reasonable person, Kirk is now my favorite character.

    Aww, where's the fun in that?

    Seriously, Kirk's cool if only because he reminds me of Grant Morrison with a buzz cut.

    Also, on the installment itself--'twas nice to hear someone say it was going to be a nice day when I was bleary-eyed and needed addictive substances to make me alive even in the vaguest philosophical sense.

    what a wonderful day and girls always miss the bucket. {hehehehehehe} the artwork in this episode was very exceptional. thanks to both of you for making every friday a wonderful day.

    Wow, a portrayal of gratitude, responsibility, community. And characters appreciating a beautiful day.
    That was an extremely pleasant way to start out my Friday. Seriously. I mean, violence, intrigue and hedonism are all well and good, but...

    Man, I'm getting old.
    • CommentTimeMar 28th 2008
    That bit of conversation in the last two frames...very nice.

    Good episode; it was a pleasure to finally meet Kirk.

    Of course, all this begs the question: What is Kirk watching out for?
    • CommentTimeMar 28th 2008
    @Flabyo Very good point.

    This is turning out to be great so far. I love how we're meeting the cast in pieces and getting small glimpses into the bigger picture. I'm curious how it will read in collected form (and I'm definitely planning on picking up the collection).

    Paul Duffield has quickly become one of my new favorite artists.

    I've been away from Whitechapel for a bit. Were there ever further discussions about a FreakAngels t-shirt? I could definitely go for one.

    I think 'girls' miss the bucket on purpose as to not ever need to use it again. Thanks for the free comic today.

    @DarkKnightJRK - This was coming dangerously close to only having characters that I disliked as people. Not that there's anything wrong with that. Good stories are made up of interesting characters, and I don't have to actually want to spend time with any of them. That being said, occasionally it's nice to meet a character that's not a prick. And six pages in, I could be completely wrong about him. He could be the biggest prick of all.

    I have to second (or third or fourth) everyone who's said that it was nice to wake up to a character making a positive statement about the day. It did make my day feel a little bit nicer.

    @~Kim - That was probably my favorite moment in the series so far. (Also, all the naked bits in the prior installments. That's nice too look at. But this installment was nice to read.)

    Excellent read! and I sympathize with the odd hours of sleeping. I got some shut eye round 4 am and woke up around 6. so I am going to spend most of today in a caffeinated daze.

    @ muse hick & spiraltwist

    They are indeed highland cattle :) I like them, they have big horns and are more likely to survive the apocalypse because they have big horns.

    He's slowed his metabolism?

    Am I the only one that wonders, whodidwhatnow?

    As always, a welcome start to a Friday morning. The relisation that a new episode would be up roused me from my hangover.

    I'm going to be very happy when I can go buy a hardcopy of all this.... :)

    @musehick - thanks for the point in the right direction

    @Paul Duffield - thanks for the confirmation and your reply makes sense, but those aren't the big horns I recognize. ;)

    @The Rascal King - re:metabolism; I've been pondering that. The purpose of slowing down metabolism would be to remove the requirements for food or water, slow cell growth/death; maybe even slow aging? If he wishes the man the tower 24/7, it makes sense to negate his body's biological needs. Intriguing.

    Is that a YAK?!?!!!!!
    -it's officially my favorite character.
