    Nothing to say this week except good job, gents. @Paul in particular: spiffy gradient on Jack's steam.

    I will have to say, though, that even a week is too long. Too long! At least I get other goodies to read in the interim...

    I was just wondering the same thing, Frexels. About Carolyn and the pale skin, that is. I don't think it's albinism, though. Aren't albinos extremely sensitive to the sun/sunburns? The only one who's shown any inclination to stay out of the sun is Sirkka, and I don't think she's worried about sunburns. Plus they've got the dark hair (at least some of them) and their eyes are purple, not pink.

    I hadn't a second thought about the purple eyes. It just seemed like an anime inspired aesthetic choice. Everyone seems just as pale as the Freakangels to me though.

    Purple eyes would be really cool in a live-action adaptation.

    23 years ago, twelve strange children were in england at exactly the same moment.

    I can't remember how many times I'd read over that part and never took that bit in... Wow.

    New Freakangel = WIN.

    Busy day at work today, busy tomorrow. Thank you, holiday.

    Another enjoyable read. Can't wait to see what happens next.

    I'm not sure if it's the rendering of the art work or the glow from my tablet's monitor, but I think I want Freak Angels to be an animated movie. I gaze at the panels and I think I see movement and then it gets blinked away. Is it possible to make a beautiful amine out of a comic and still be faithful to the artistic aestethic?
    I basically want to use all the panels as a full colour storyboard and just give them life. Well, not life exactly (because they seem to have a complicated life as it is) but movement. Does anyone else see the characters or scenery move just slightly when reading this comic?

    Yes, it really is but only a few production houses from around the world (most of them that I know of in Japan) are capable of replicating or bettering the aesthetic from a good comic. In the case of Freakangels it would be relatively easy, since the comic itself emulates the aesthetics of animation on a lot of levels.
    I think I've said this before somewhere, but I approach Freakangels with the sort of attitude that I'd approach an animation (and use some similar production methods), since a lot of the time it's identical in format to a storyboard, but with a finished level of detail and the script printed in bubbles instead of separately.
    I'd love to see it animated well some day. I don't know if Warren feels the same?

    Illumination conversation this week. It will be interesting to see the introduction of said pocket factions. I wonder if they'll be wearing the tinfoil hats?
    Did anyone else hear Jack speak with Warren's voice?

    Just got back to civilization a few hours ago. Missed the net a bit.

    I still don't quite like Alice yet, but Connor's had my heart since day one ;)
    Also, Sirkka told KK that Conner hadn't gotten any action in a while (RE: his rescuing Alice). See anything budding there yet? Think it will?
