    This unfolding is pleasant. Not sure who I am more curious about Mark or Question Mark.

    With ending the world and like terms but not seeing other ruined areas of the world I had come to feel like they'd ruined their corner of the world. World can be subjective that way. But when Arkaday looked wider it did seem a bit like she was going beyond. I'd imagine being drunk would be a good buffer for that kind of all too sobering vision.

    Thanks again for a fun read.

    Daily the phrase "succeeding ourselves to death" comes to mind. It is appropriate for so many things these days.

    To everyone asking about the names...

    I just figured it's because they got the freaKangels package... the hard "c" sound is central to the group name, hence all their names contain it as well.

    I just assumed Freakcave was a play on "batcave" as in, chill-out spot. I call my flat the bat-cave, sometimes.

    @EtFb and anyone else who asked where to find the early talk about the K/C in the names...
    You can find all the episode discussions under the FREAKANGELS category.

    Another way of putting it would be that if they took the Freakcave seriously, then the steam-powered truck that delivers water must be their Freakmobile. To the Freakmobile!! *chug chug chug chug* We'll catch up with those crime-inals! *chug chug chug* In a few years! *chug*

    Well, they've already got the Freakcopter, too. And Sirkka probably has some rubber or leather costumes stashed somewhere in her den of sin. Although I'm not sure the intricacies of the logo would show up well when projected on the clouds.


    Okay, just needed to get that out. I'm over the freakcave joke now.

    Ah ah. No-one but KK touches the bike.

    Ah, yes. 'Do not touch the bike.' I'd forgotten. Still, I want my action figure KK with steambike and removable helmet. Falling Water Canteen of Death (or at least Knockout-yness) sold separately.

    I would SO buy that!... but only if the Falling Canteen of Death came with it. And maybe a complimentary bottle of Tea-Wine of Death.

    The Freakcave comment, especially since it comes from Karl, has to be evaluated with his earlier line "I refuse to share a mind with people who were raised by the fucking television!" in mind. Had somebody other than Karl used the term Freakcave, it'd just be a reaffirmation of his complaint. Since he's the one that did it, it's more just a continuation of his earlier mocking attitude.

    I need money so I can buy the FreakAngels paperback and do a proper re-read. Alas, I'm stuck to doing it on the internet.

    As for Arkady's power... She overdosed. On what, I don't believe we know. But what I get is a sense that she doesn't have a greater potential of power than the other FreakAngels, merely that she's already been to the absolute limit and tried pushing herself beyond it before. She knows what they all can do, she's experienced at it, and that has left her more than a little messed up.

    I want a desktop bg of KK dropping the canteen and the phrase "Falling Water Canteen of Death"

    I don't have a good font, so I left off the phrase, but how's this?

    Falling Water Canteen of Death!

    (and the canteen is rather blurry. But you can just say the focus is where it came from or something)

    "Hell of a day!"

    These four words stand out more than anything else in this episode (even Arkady's eyes). Every episode, someone mentions how perfect the pacing of this story is. Well, if that don't just put it into perspective for you, huh? 27 weeks of our lives (or, in my case 6 weeks) and we've still only known these people for ONE day. It was this very morning that KK woke up in Lambeth, that Alice showed up waving her shotgun, that poor pantsless Luke was delivering his dream-dissertations... and what really drove this point home for me was turning the page from Connor to Karl as he covers his garden for the night, twilight in a garden that we all watched him ascend to some 22 weeks (episodes) ago. A day in the life, indeed.

    And what happens to the FreakAngels when the sun sets?

    Why, The FreakCave, of course!

    I smell an awkward dinner scene motif approaching...

    I'm no artist, but I cannibalized the Freakangels logo for font, and put it on above photo, mostly for shits and giggles:

    Also got a fairly hi-res of just the font, if you want it on a different picture.

    Edited because I forgot there was a perfectly decent 'W' right here in the upper left corner of the forum, and I wasn't very happy with mine. Also, white text instead of black to match. I get obsessive about these things.

    Hell yeah!

    I hadn't actually realised that it was only one day up to this point.

    It would be cool if each collected volume covered one day each, but it would also put an artificial restriction on the pacing of the story which would likely just get in the way down the track.

    And, you know, we'd still have a while yet to wait for the trade...

    Well, since I found this webcomic and forum less than a week ago, I had the pleasure of reading 27 issues, for the first time, in one sitting. I stumbled across this page accidentaly whilst searching for X-men related thingies.

    I must say, I do love FreakAngels. The setting is of the sort that has always intrigued me (esp. half sunken cities for some reason.) and the dynamic of characters bound by birth, but not by birth, is most appealing as well.

    I have to admit that I'm still getting up to date on your work, but this is my favorite so far. Thank you Warren.


    P.S. - I'm starting to think that Warren has his very own FreezeRay... how else could he possibly read every single post. It's just scary.
