    Those pirates are so totally, totally screwed. Unless they somehow knock Jack out very, very fast.
    One thing did bug me in today's comic - the shadow as the bike takes off, if it were that shape then surely it would be being cast onto a wall behind the viewer, rather than on the floor below it?

    The art is brilliant as always.

    Am I the only person that looks at the images of flooded cities and drools with artistic glee? That picture is beautiful!

    It was really coming down a second ago here in PA, but the rain seems to have changed its mind and given up now.

    I suspect bad shit is about to rise to the surface.

    Loved the shot of Jack about to go in ...

    I've just read this cool episode, listening to BBC 1 Xtra, surrounded by cacti. I read it from the veranda of my house, at the top of a hill above Rouen, Normandy, France, and the weather is sunny. That hill got its name because Rabelais' giant, Gargantua, once sat on it in order to cool his feet in the river Seine. There are strawberries in the garden, so red and glistening birds can't help gallivanting.

    I can't wait for episode 19!

    So, I picked up my Freakangels t-shirt in Chicago. I am a happy camper now. :)

    I can't wait until the print edition of this series comes out--maybe if I've got it laying around the house my wife will finally pick it up & get into it. I keep trying to steer people over here, but not so much success.

    I deny nothing! Google is my friend :D

    I like those drowned london pics, although they suffer from photo-manipulation induced uncanny valley syndrome a bit. I wonder if they were in any way inspired by Freakangels?

    What is in the camping shop?
    Something wicked this way comes.

    I'm guessing Jack is hitting up the camping shop to see if they've got the rope that Alice is looking for.

    @Lazlo23:

    "that sailboat doesn't look friendly..."


    Aye - but the binoculars on page 4 look far more menacing. It's the whole grey thing going on in that frame, and the gloves - gives me the chills.

    I think this was our first glimpse of Mark. I looked carefully in other episodes and I saw no one else wearing gloves, neither Freakangels, pirates or the boat-based invaders. Granted the skin doesn't look especially pale, but that could be the angle and the shadows. Or perhaps Mark does something to darken his skin.
