    RachaelNoel...snarky?

    You didn't sound that way to me.

    LOL.

    S'all good.

    Oh, by the way, by ethnic, I meant any race other than European.

    Sure, they're ethnic too, or more specifically, they belong to a certain ethnic group.

    I guess I should've just said that Carolyn looked exotically ethnic, given the characters we've seen so far. That make sense? LOL. I hope it does.

    Facial features, bone structure, hair texture and style...Carolyn stood out to me because there seemed to be a little darkness in her makeup.

    One way or another, I'm glad to see Warren's trademark color blindness come into play. It always does.

    What's more, he doesn't feel the need to write his people as throwback stereotypes in order to please people who won't get out of bed with the whore of pop culture.

    S'all gravy, here. LOL. I didn't take offense in anyway, so please don't apologize.

    Hawksmoor...From The Bleed.

    Seeing the millennium dome in there really blew my mind. Brought home the point that the Freakangels world is nascent, barely born. I think the artwork and writing on Freakangels is exquisite. Warren this is one of your masterworks, for me it's already up there with Transmet and Fell. Please don't end this anytime soon.

    "We're succeeding ourselves to death". Really loved it.

    I like Caroyln's freckles! I like the detail to the clothing. I like the hand gestures, the sense of motion about the characters.

    Beautiful! This is the first comic I've followed from the beginning, and it has set the bar pretty high.

    "Luke's keeping out of trouble."
    I laughed maniacally at that line.

    Great job Paul and Warren! feel the same as everyone else- wonderful art- Paul: cool watercolor effect, Carolyn is awesome, and anything Arkady related- and wonderful writing Warren: "succeeding ourselves to death", and the segueway from water cart + Arkady to Connor + Stray, brilliant.
    Thanks P & W and have a great wkend.

    Every panel seemed to add something new to the Freakangel's richness this week - lovely. Carolyn is a solid addition and it's interesting to see more of the tech being used. Thanks guys (n gal).

    Now I'm waiting for someone to work out which parts of London are still accessible by working out the water level from how high it is on the dome...

    @synthsapien

    lol! Good luck to them :D I've been scouring the net for a comprehensive exportable 3D model of London to use for exactly that purpose, but to no avail (actually if anyone knows of such a thing and how to actually get hold of it, you'll have done Freakangels an awesome service).

    Feeding children is succeeding ourselves to death? Really everyone was thinking it. Thanks, Warren!
    I'd forgotten that there are so many Freakangels. Really, we only know half of them... what 6 or 7? There are supposed to be 12 or 13? I like Carolyn, but I like Tinfoilhat-flower-Karl. Happy to see him talked about, but I sure do love seeing him. Good to see Connor back, too. 14 will be nuts.

    Paul, I don't know what to tell you thus far, but I am on the mission and it is an important one. Everybody, help out! J'command!
    Edit to add: And your skies are always amazing. I don't know how you do that, but it's brilliant.

    @Paul - I don't think you can get one unless someone you can contact has access to the Virtual London model. Google tried to get it on Google Earth apparently, but the idea was scuppered.

    @synthsapien
    Arg, I came across that article a while back, but misread the title, becoming very excited followed by very disappointed :( I don't know of anyone who might have access to it.
    @Cyman
    Thanks! The more help the more chance :) Maybe we can find an insider... hehehe...

    Freakangels has become the lunchtime stimulant hit that powers me through the Friday afternoon grind. That opening shot of the dome had my mouth literally hanging open. Luckily, it was empty at the time. Not that it matters, but I thought Carolyn had more of a celtic look to her..

    the people who made this might have a virtual model maybe

    @Paul Duffield (& @Synthsapien):
    you may want to locate an old-school contour map of London area. They will either be available online, or at most major university/ public libraries in England. London and area must have been extensively surveyed for decades or even in the 19th century by whatever is the equivalent of a British cartographic or geographic service- most major countries have done this. then you can superimpose a contour map upon a street map. the third thing that may help you is a tourist map- showing all the key features and highlights. mark this on your contour-street map and bingo- that'll give you precisely the info you need! :-)

    ucl virtual london

    this might also be interesting

    @promethian - That sounds promising, but hard work! Worth it though.

    @musehick - that's the model we were talking about ;)

    @Promethian
    That's roughly how I'm doing things at the moment (only with a bit more hacking, since it's not quite so straight forward).
    @Muse Hick
    I came across the flooded london and also the london crysis mod that this guy has posted here: http://digitalurban.blogspot.com/ As far as I can tell, they got the London data from Google 3D archives and processed it with Sketchup (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ij4Pwg4RqjY), but I'm not sure how that adds up since I can only find a handful of models in the archive.

    Paul, has no-one sent you the link to the speculative flood map overlay? You can work off street level for a given area, and guesstimate the height of the buildings for difference. I'd assumed that (or some variation) was what you were doing, as you've been quite consistent so far...!

    I want Connor's jacket. I want it now.

    Give it to me.

    I'm intrigued by the concept of the solar still Dome... What's the science of that process? Is it like evaporative desalination? Cos I thought that process, while very effective at purifying contaminated or salty water, also left behind most of the beneficial nutrients of drinking water...

    Seems things are progressing on the 'angelsworld floodmap ;) Most interesting!
