    Apparently, it's Friday. I couldn't be sure... but there's a new FREAKANGELS, so it must be true!

    G'morning, Whitechapel. You'll have gathered this week's blurred a bit for me... nothing this can of drugs won't set right, though. How's everyone? Bit of cold-weather crud going around, you all taking your vitamins?

    Not bad, not bad. My back's gone out on me so I'm at home with a cup of tea, a hotwater bottle and a quilt around my shoulders...Yourself?

    NIce episode this. I have been looking forward to those little glimpses into the ways things are organised. It's those details that make everything so interesting.

    Oh, is that the gentle hand of foreboding I see in the last panel?

    Nice to meet another 'angel and I really do enjoy seeing how stuff works behind the scenes.

    This week has been a bit of a mixture but it is, as you say, Friday and I plan to spend the weekend recovering. Sleep and booze will probably feature heavily.

    Something is going to burst out of there or something weird and unpleasant or ...

    Hi, it's the last day of work of this week, and this is already a good thing. Swimming pool this evening (14:40 here now) and going out with friends.

    I didn't get if, when somebody of the freakangels sends a message, it can be heard from all of those (like a broadband call) or they can send private messages too.
    Anyway, I'm lookin' forward to see what happens next!

    Great comic.

    i've run out of superlatives to heap upon this weekly story. so I'll just say it was great as usual.

    A Freakangels caduceus. Cool.

    In just a few panels, a couple of pages, the depths of a character are introduced and revealed. That's been the case throughout the entire saga thus far.

    As for my week, it so far has lasted a month, it seems, and still has a couple of days to go. Right now, I'm off to search for ducks. Wish me luck.

    Thank you for a new reason to love Fridays.

    I feel like I'm repeating myself, but I love the pacing of this story.

    That last panel can be read as a nice, tender moment, or foreboding of something very bad.... can't wait to see the next page. Which makes for a nice, almost subtle cliffhanger.
    Also makes me wonder how it'll read when I have the next page right there (when I get the collection edition)

    Good week for me, other then the girlfriend falling down a flight of stairs (she's banged up a bit but okay)
    probably have to work on the weekend to catch up of stuff, but I can do it from home, so it's not so bad.

    "I offend that!" yes. that made me happy.

    vitamin c was the story of my week. i am now in the coughing phase of the death-ick, and anticipate that will last for a bit as I am not in the mood not to smoke.

    happy morning friday, i wonder - the worst enemies are the little ones that we cannot see as yet?

    i have to work now. must focus elsewhere. Good morning and lovely day to all...

    I saw the announcement, went to post a package, and suddenly realised what I'd done :(
    Read now. I like the way characters are introduced in this strip, I don't know if its intentional, but they start anonymously, and declared themselves over a few pages. Its very clean, and I like it a lot. I'm also waiting for the next panel, but I'm not sure if its going to be bad, or stunning, or both. And its too late for vitamins for me, I came down coldy on Wednesday, my summer is officially over.

    Really liked Miki, but this week also reminded me why I like Connor and KK so much as well.

    I'm happy with the more sedate pace the second book has set so far, and I like that it's giving us more time to figure out what's going on with the Freakangels on a more longterm basis. Looking forward to more backstory reveals as things go on.

    I'm a little worried about what's next. Good to see I'm not the only one who is uneasy.

    This week has actually been fairly good and I'm looking forward to some new projects. Except today is Friday which means the start of my work week. Ick.

    The pacing is wonderful. We are getting so much out of 6 pages and its forcing us to really see the characters and think about alot before each new installment comes out. very well done! Its cold as a bitch here in jersey (2 days ago i couldnt stand outside for 5 minutes without sweating like a pig, global warming isnt real HA!)

    It's "International Talk Like a Pirate" day. Avast!!

    I genuinely have no idea where this story is going, every week more questions are raised. That's a good thing.

    I concur with Ghoulash Mike's insightful statements of:
    A Freakangels caduceus. Cool.

    By the end of the episode, I'd come up with 5 different places to display that. Me = Gemini = Mercurial. (also, initials are MD, though I've no other affliaction, imagined or otherwise, with the medical profession. however, in my own subtle subconscious and shamanic way, I do posess the ability to heal, as do we all, I'm sure.)

    and yes, I too, experienced the sense of foreboding during the last panel. definitely a product of the innocence and intimacy of the moment intensified by the panel framing. also, caz's "it's a miracle we're not dead already."
    RE: panel framing: how much is explicitly stated in the script, how much is collaboration, and how much is left to paul's discretion? specifically, in this instance, I'm assuming a deliberate decision to highten tension at the end of the episode. hell, it could mean absolutely NOTHING next week, and exist merely to have us all leaning expectantly into our screens for the duration of the week.

    drunken freakangels sets a dangerous precedent to enter the weekend with, and I'm sure we'll be treated to weeks more of it as the evening progresses. call me impressionable, but I anticipated wild drunken fluctuations between my patented introspective 1,000 yard gaze and outbursts of faux british surly pub-speak (punctuated with Doctor Who gibberish and theme song whistles. I'll try to keep a tally of how many times I scream "EXTERMINATE!" over the weekend, because I know you're all dying to know, right?)

    also, this is my first early morning whitechapel visit. the computer lab at school was finally open, and now I feel just as plugged in and Inter-metropolitan as the rest of you Web Babies. now, who'll write my geography discussion question now that I've wasted my hour here in whitechapel?
