    Previous installments had shown another boat near Jack's and his being armed with a gun. So I knew Something Bad might be coming down. But the sight of the nasty clout still gave me a lurch...even after reading the first chapter of NO HERO. Does Jack have some previously unseen Freakangel power that allows him to survive both drowning and head injury? Or will he become the first casualty of our cast?

    That bit of overactive fan speculation aside, I wonder if some FREAKANGELS fan has been mad enough to try building a working model of KK's helicopter.

    Miranda's Eyes: if I had any mechanical expertise whatsoever, you can bet there'd be a half-assembled KK-mobile in my backyard right now.

    Also, slightly non-contributive (and I'm definitely not accusing Ellis of plagiarism) but does anyone notice that Connor slightly resembles Amon from Witch Hunter Robin? Except more awesome. And less huge in the shoulders.

    for those of us who don't live in the UK, here's the story of the word "Scran": http://www.worldwidewords.org/qa/qa-scr2.htm

    Ah, this has been pointed out before. No deliberate resemblance though, I'm not a fan of Witch Hunter Robin.

    The empty and flooded london streets are beautiful, as ever, as is that eerie gunmetal sky and the lighting. Everything seems quite clean, which is odd, and a bit spooky - you'd expect there to be moss and rats and brambles and pidgeon colonies and things - there's an abandoned building on Blackfriars road that has buddhleias growing out of all sorts of places.

    Sorry Lambeth...

    It's funny, because the average Freakagels episode would in theory last anywhere from 2-6 minutes, depending, if you dramatized it; and yet it's become the surrogate "TV Show I Must Watch Religiously Every Week."

    I had a similar thing when I was reading the Baroque Cycle by Stephenson, Reading 3000 pages over several months, 3-4 nights a week, it became like a serial.

    However unlike television, Warren Ellis and Neal Stephenson don't stop the story every 2 minutes to sell me Doritos.
