    G'morning Whitechapel. It's a Friday Interlude this week.

    I managed about an hour's worth of nap, and was going to apologize if my Friday morning thread-starter sounded a little fried. But y'know, it been a nightmarishly busy week for a lot of people, so I can't really complain too much. Nothing a couple of Red Bull can't fix. I hope. How's everyone else holding together this morning?

    Okay, let's face it, Warren's just tapped, isn't he?

    Speaking of recognising him in the street, I was sure I saw him in a pub in Cork a few months ago. Either that or it was some other elderly curmudgeon with a laptop strapped to his head...

    Friday is no work day, and I fucking love it!

    I still really hope these interludes are included in the print editions. Nice way to show the workings of the ongoing series to all those naysaying trade waiters...

    Never been to Cork in my life.

    I enjoy the interludes as much as the story...haven't encountered Warren on the streets as yet, despite England's relative small size.
    Dunno if I'd recognise you Mister E..some people photograph different.

    "Aren't you Alan Mooarghhhhhhhhhhhhh!"

    Dumb questions: Is FreakAngels Vol 1 going to be available on Amazon? It's not listed yet, which is strange when amazon often lists books that are just rumoured to be twinkles in author's eyes years in advance. Will Warren be doing any promotional work in the UK to support the release of FreakAngels Vol 1? Why is it every time I switch on Family Guy it's an episode I've already seen?

    This morning/afternoon I am barely holding it together at all. Despite it being a 4 day week because of the bank holiday on Monday I am shattered. Last night was ante-natal class. Since I come over all dizzy at just the mention of the word placenta, I expect I'm going to need reviving at some point of the birthing experience. To make things worse, I just got an email from my boss that indicates he thought I had the day off work today, so I'm not even supposed to be here today!

    I actually can't stand most weekly webcomics. Three updates a week is normally the minimum I can take. But Freakangels is different - most of the weekly comics I've tried to read have done ONE PAGE per week, which is godawful. Freakangels does six pages a week, which is actually more than weekdaily comics. And the "Yay, it's Freakangels day!" factor is nice :)

    I'm not awake yet and nothing coming out the brain is making any sense. I can say bummer about the interlude this week, but reading it was very amusing.

    I know a few weekly comics.

    Dresden Codak is supposed to be weekly, even though in practice it's more like... triannually.

    Then there's Kukuburi which likewise isn't currently updating due to the creator's legal issues, Kissing Chaos which again is somewhat onhold due to impending twins, and The Abominable Charles Christopher which currently updates quite regularly.

    Can I post more if I think of them, or will that start to get annoying? I have a feeling I've forgotten quite a few.

    Gah, Kissing Chaos is

    Somehow I screwed it up OH GOD I'M DOING IT WRONG.

    Is that why we don't have our freakangels episode, because somebody went to a pub in Cork, on da sloi?

    Anyway, I always thought one episode per week was something rough to do.

    edit: OMGBEES > don't panic, friend, you can edit your posts, you know that? Of course you do.

    Crimson Dark is weekly (mondays). one rendered page per week.

    the other webcomics i read usually update more frequently (OOTS, Requiem, XKCD).

    Thanks Gekko! I wasn't aware, I will work on that.

    I'd also like to comment on the friendly tone of your post! I don't think I've ever been corrected on the 'Net without having my penis size, sexual preference, or mother commented on. What a friendly place!

    I worked yesterday, which I usually don't do, and there's no cold cereal in the cupboard, and woke up to my sister puking her guts out. Which is to say, I am particularly out of it and getting going is going to be particularly challenging.

    On the bright side, I'm going to the beach on Monday with a friend (I can't really afford it, but it's now or never, because planning things with her can be an impossibility).

    i would also like to plead for the addition of the Interludes into the print versions. not that it matters, but as i will be getting the hardcover offering; please, please include them there. please.

    Stopped working around 4 am. Glad to have time to reread from Hell, dive in Lazarev´s ´Karma Diagnostics´ and ´Satan Tango´ by some hungarian author who resembles Kafka, or so they say. My eyes bleed, heart stopped working three hours ago and my back feels like someone danced their own satan tango on them. High heeled.

    I think about liquor.

    The interludes are quite entertaining and deserve to be included with the print compilations.

    As for the weekly webcomics... allow me to take a gander at my bookmarks.
    Godmode Online has fairly recently adopted at weekly schedule.
    Antihero for Hire is on a Mon/Fri publish schedule.
    Bob the Angry Flower is published on Fridays.
    Kristy vs the Zombie Army is another Friday comic.
    Starslip Extra is a Tuesday publish.
    The Non-Adventures of Wonderella is updated on Saturdays.
    Zap! In Space updates Mondays.
    Gingerdead only updates Wednesdays.

    I'm certain there are more, and there are a few others I hit that have "odd" update schedules such as Monday and Thursday, or Tuesday and Thursday.

    Web comics...
    Transmisison X has several series running that each get updated regularly (mostly once a week) and it scheduled so there is something new there every day

    As for the interlude... amusing, though I must say just reading about the things Warren wants to avoid conjures some images that amuse me more..... probably best I leave it at that.

    Though it's already been mentioned, I just wanted to point out that The Abominable Charles Christopher by Karl Kerschl is excellent.

    Ahh, Freakangel Friday: one of my weekly milestones. Read it, go on lunch and come back knowing that I'm on the home straight and the weekend is just a few hours away.

    And thank god for that, because it's been the longest 4-day week I think I've ever had. The law of averages states that I've got to get some actual sleep one of these nights...
