    I think the biggest worry is going to be what the Mudlarks do to the "civilian" populace that's left, to everyone who's not a Freakangel. Before our heroes can assemble and stop them I have a bad feeling the streets are going to be very red...

    And I just keep waiting for Mark to rear is his ugly head again--but then again, I kind like that he's this shadow of threat lurking out of frame, stirring up God-knows-what out in the wider world. When he finally *does* make his entrance into the story I'm expecting it'll be pretty grand.

    Love this comic...

    Fuck yes.

    That flourish with the lack of sound and overlapping telepathic disconnect was genius.

    Very picaresque. Ever thought about having just a 'good guy' as your good guy?

    Something like this?

    I was actually making this before I say this thread, because I thought the same thing... It's 1280x1024. I can resize it too if people would like...
    Going to edit my own post 500 times apparently... Not sure if I should have put the Avatar logo in the bottom right. I wanted to be clear that it's not my material, but does that give the false impression that Avatar endorses the wallpaper?

    It's not great. I haven't really used photoshop in a year or two other than to do photo manip. so...
    Constructive criticism welcome!

    That was satisfying. I too wondered if the folks coming were more Mudlarks or citizens sent by other Freakangels. Kind of hope more Mudlarks so that maybe a demonstration of what the FAs can do in a pinch will come up.

    I'm having a time out until I can learn some manners.

    nothing like a story which doesn't try to beautify the nature of violence. i really enjoy reading between the panels here, wherein jack's assault was perhaps augmented with his psychic ability to see the thoughts of his enemies. combat precognition is a wonderful and terrible thing. got a feeling it'll be devastating to see what the whole gang will do with their powers combined to repel these invaders. makes me wonder further, what kind of variation there is in their powers- is jack naturally gifted in this aspect of melee? arkady's already demonstrated an entirely different propensity, for conceptual/emotional attack.. and was it sirkka or kk who dismantled alice's knife with telekinesis? way to keep the suspense rising, sirs

    @ravnos--I hope no one minds that you made that, because it's AWESOME. I already saved a copy.

    I'm just a big fan of the page transcript for page 4. It's so... descriptive.
    • CommentTimeJul 12th 2008
    ... uh... thanks! Not used to praise... lol. I'm mildly unhappy with it mostly due to quality. I had to pull the logo from the official wallpaper they put up on the site, and when I edited the background out and resized it (slightly) I lost some of the original quality, so I had to add a blur effect to remove a little of the pixelation, so I lost some of the sharpness of it. But otherwise I think it's pretty good. If anyone has some advice I'd love to hear it so I can improve it.

    Oooh, suddenly the almost to-good-to-be-true lifestyle of Freakangels gets all bloodied up and nasty!! Fabbo!!!
    And cos I can (I silkscreen (by hand)) old airforce jacket updated.. >:-)
    • CommentTimeJul 13th 2008
    Yes!! My new wallpaper! <3<3<3

    And Avatar icon or not, we all know who's goods it is :)
    Actually, is there a thread in here that's for fan-made wallpapers and icons 'n stuff? Because I made a few livejournal icons for myself a while back. I'd love to share some if it's okay with the boys.

    I made another 2 versions. I've been thinking it's a little too "busy" so I made the bottom logo smaller...


    Then I still thought it was too "busy" so I made the top one smaller too.


    Also sent the psd to a friend who may play with it a bit.

    ahhh, sweet carnage. always gets the goo flowing. it indeed makes for an uplifting event inside the drollery of my week. next week.... more blood! i hope....

    Nice jacket. :)

    ^ ditto.

    I've always prided myself on being able to look at gross things without wincing (a couple weeks shadowing a pathologist's assistant will do that to you) but that panel of the guy's throat spewing blood in the air is by far the most unapologetically violent shot I've ever seen in a comic. It's like a fountain, but in a much gorier way. Priestess like.

    Also, I will grudgingly admit that I breathed a sigh of relief when Jack turned up alive, because next to Connor he's probably my second favorite Freakangel.
