    Morning, Whitechapel. It's Friday, and if you've been waiting for a full book of FREAKANGELS to start reading: here you go.

    I've noticed we've got some new faces just in the past few weeks, so a couple of highlights from the FAQ:

    No, this isn't the end of FREAKANGELS -- just the end of the first book. Through today will be the contents of the upcoming printed collection.

    Yes, all episodes will continue to be archived, online and free, even after the trade is released.

    We'll get order details up about the first trade here very soon:

    Sirs - that was pretty sublime
    • CommentTimeAug 15th 2008
    Yes indeed, that was mighty satisfying. When I get time this weekend, I shall go back and read through it all in one sitting. It'll help me get straight who's who in my head.

    Ah, a chilled episode after last week's carnage... nice. Luke's gonna be trouble soon, isn't he?

    And Alice? Alice is all of us.

    Yeah, I'm guessing that look on the first panel of page 5 is horror at the carnage she unleashed and distress as to what she has gotten herself into. I love the birds-eye view of London in the last panel, but I wouldn't want to be on top of rickety scaffolding on top of Christchurch's that is tall enough to look down on the Gherkin!

    First page: highly excellent. First big laugh of the book for me, I believe. Looking forward to having a chance to read Freakangels in places other than my computer chair, too. Must admit to some small sadness at seeing the big guns getting put to bed, though. There's something about a steam-powered onslaught of excessive pointy death that just... does things to a man.

    My first visit and I get to read the whole first book in one go, amazing, sublime, inspirational i could go on but I think you get my point.

    That final panel is stunning. And oh, heh, Lambeth. Heh. Luke is definitely going to be trouble though, isn't he?

    And nothing ever escapes the touch of LOLcat...

    Exquisite. Like somebody offering me a beer, and then discovering they have nothing but Guinness.

    I love how she kind of melts into the picture in the last page, hard to make out in the gray of Ruined London.

    The writing and art on this have made it my favorite part of Friday.

    You lucky bastard.

    And the art. Don't you all love the last panel of this book one? mesmerizing.

    Sam - how does it read in 1 sitting? I joined at about episode 10 so I got to read 10 in a row but I was wondering today how it would read in a single volume. Does it feel like lots of 6 page comics strung together or does it flow.

    Mesmerizing - you mean head spinning! I got vertigo when I studied the picture for more than a few seconds.

    I have no doubt it will flow just fine in book form, I've kind of been eyeing that (mentally) as well. Can't wait to get my trade edition. :)

    "I can has vodka"... damn me for laughing at that out loud. She's just so... so.... precious.

    It's been an awesome ride to-date, can't wait for the story to continue. Freakangels Friday's are the best.

    I hatehatehate LOLcats, but the line "I can has vodka?", coming from Arkady, made me spit my morning coffee.

    And wow...that last page is awesome.

    I shall be buying the trade for sure, might get another for a friend of mine who doesn't do the webcomic thing just to show him what he's been missing.
    • CommentTimeAug 15th 2008
    its never felt particularly episodic, so i can't see there being a problem with that in the trade. and it'll be nice to have it all in one volume.
    nice conclusion to wrap the book
    • CommentTimeAug 15th 2008
    That was good, damn good.

    Thanks for putting this out, I honestly look forward to Friday mornings more because of this book
    • CommentTimeAug 15th 2008
    Wow! What an awesome piece of art to end the first collection of the FREAKANGELS episodes with!

    Nice foreshadowing of possibilities to come
    but...I hope Alice gets some food soon. The poor thing looks like she's going to pass out.
