    I for one would have been stoked to see her wearing a Stone Roses t-shirt.

    Or, as they were known down south, "that cunt with one eyebrow who wanks a microphone and the other three in the back."

    (hides perverse fondness for "Made Of Stone" and "Waterfall")

    (remembers he had them on his mix mp3player during his Chicago signings)

    (shit)

    Bwaaahaahaaa.

    I admit it. I still love that tired old "I Wanna Be Adored" song. Video makes me want to stab things in my ear canals, though.

    Whatever Warren, the self-titled album is genius from beginning to end.

    Yes, even the song that's just another one of the songs backwards with dude singing different lyrics overtop of it.

    OK, maybe not that song. But still.

    It was an important album. I don't think a lot of it was actually very good, but it was important. And I am Warren Ellis and you are a weirdo on the internet, so go and take some drugs or something.

    Go, Alice!
    Attack on two fronts? Holy fuck, that cannot be good. Like someone else upthread, I suspect Mark in this. Somebody had to have planned this. And hired idiots like the ones that attacked Luke. Makes me paranoid that all this is distraction and the real threat will slip in while they're dealing with this mess.

    I was not at nerd prom. I was at naked pagan dancing.

    I'm rather new to this comix thing, I'll say more in the introductions page, but that comment from Connor: "GIVE ME YOUR EYES—JUST LET IT HAPPEN—SHOW ME THEM" seems a bit deus ex machina. If in the middle of an emergency, a voice in your head said "Give me your eyes." wouldn't you balk? Wouldn't your mind reel -- no matter who the voice said it was? You would do something to protect yourself, even if unconsciously- you'd flinch. I know it's essential to move the plot along at a reasonable pace, but for me it strained the limits of disbelief.

    I know it sounds like a minor complaint and my reasoning behind it is going to seem even more ridiculous, but it made the characters seem cartoons.

    It helped things clip on a bit, I'll allow -- but I would note that I established the "give me your eyes" stunt back in Episode 6, so it doesn't really count as deus ex machina.

    Not to mention she's already familiar with their weird ass mind tricks, is on their side and knows the urgency of the situation. Besides, how do you defend yourself from a psychic attack? Not like she was capable of it before...

    I agree, D ex M was the wrong idea, It would have been a miracle to Alice, not to me.
    Everyone wondered when she was going to have stopped running the siren, right about then, I would imagine. Then my genius husband said, he's not reading her eyes, he's reading her mind, he should only have had to ask her to look at the intruders.

    I suppose when you're doing this kind of writing, it's difficult to parse the line between too much exposition and not enough.
    Cheers,
    M

    "give me your eyes" sounds so much cooler though. Whoever thought there'd be this much fuss over one line?

    at this point i'd like to point out the second panel is brilliant. I know paul talked before about having trouble getting action/intent in his drawings? but her pfffft is the perfect expression.
