    @Ariana
    Thanks :) Although that's one of the resources I've been using (and it's done the job fine), the perfectionist in me would love to know how the flooding would look down to the building, and more than that I'd also love to be able to glide through London to any viewpoint and create more accurate skylines when I don't have decent photos. As a reference to London or a flood guide, it would be useful on every exterior shot. Not to mention that having an accurate 3D model of London would just be cool!

    Another black man here who is also glad to see Carolyn, freckles, knots and all. Great new episode.

    Also I figure "Welcome to Whitechapel. Freakangels territory." is Warren's subtle way of opening the second act after the interlude.

    So, where's Arkady's hand in the 4th panel of pg. 3 ? Just curious...

    Great comic, Paul, Warren! Beautiful scenes, and a compelling story and characters. I'm new to comics but have been reading since the first episode. Is this going to be an extended parable, then?

    I was also questioning the placement of Arkady's hand. I'm assuming it wasn't intentional but even the look in her eye makes it seem as if she is coping a feel. No girl I've been with has ever let me caress her breast while having a casual conversation.

    I didn't even know the Millennium Dome existed before reading this thread.

    As another black guy (and decent human being) in the Whitechapel I do like seeing diversity as well, but I really haven't noticed "Warren's trademark color blindness" Hawksmoor mentioned. His work seems pretty anglocentric to me. Not that there is anything wrong with that.

    Carolyn should totally be played by Stacey McKenzie in the live action movie, yeah?

    Stacey McKenzie is Carolyn

    Awesome job, gents.

    This episode just made everything richer, for me. Filling out some of the texture. Loving it lots. It reminded me to properly prod the boyfiend into reading it - he read it backwards (?!) but is a proper convert now.

    @Zombinoid - If you look at the 3rd panel you assume Arkady's arm is locked around Carolyn's but on second glance the angle looks awkward and, in the end, you just can't say where her hand is... When you come to the next panel, she is apparently 'copping a feel', and her eyes are the dead giveaway.

    Thoughts?

    Like I said, I'm new to this genre. Is this a plot line or is Duffield just f*cking with me?

    LBA:
    Also, it seems that the people depend on the FREAKANGELS for almost everything, I'd think that they would at some point have to have the people start doing a lot of stuff on their own. There has to be some engineer, scientist, agronomist, etc inclined people out there that could lend a hand.

    At this point the people seem to be happy to be looked after but i do suspect this will be a bigger part of the story if / when the people find out what the freak angels did (causing the flood and all) i'm sure panic and a division of the population and imbalance in the distribution of available resources depending on 'sides' chosen if the secret were to come out. there is a lot Warren can do with this if / when the time comes.

    Excellent episode to come back off an interlude from; great conversations.

    @ Paul Duffield - I don't know if this will be of any help, but there's a PS2 game out there called The Getaway that is said to be a meticulously modeled 3D representation of several blocks of London's city streets. It's, of course, not flooded, though.

    I remember seeing part of "The Day the Earth Caught Fire" with the flooding of London forcing evacuation of women and children ... makes me wonder.

    New girl here.
    I'm absolutely loving how all the characters are coming in nice and slowly (but not too slowly) and are given the chance to get their own story in right away.
    I also love how all the FreakAngels we've met so far have a K or hard C sound in their name... don't know if it's just a coincidence, but it's one thing I've noticed.
    And I have to jump on the wagons of 1) What Carolyn is usually called, and 2) where the hell was Arkady's hand?
    Also, hearts to Connor, but he looks a little different than he did in earlier episodes.

    Nope, not a coincidence. Welcome to Whitechapel, diello.

    According to my boyfriend, Arkady is a Russian masculine name, and decidedly not one to be given to a girl. I thought that was pretty interesting.

    This is indeed true. But many years ago, I knew a purple-haired woman who used Arkady as her internet handle.

    -Arkady's hands. heh. It was pointed out what they were doing earlier in the thread, and now seems rather obvious.
    -I like the name Arkady. It's a sorta jaunty name, nice off the tongue.
