    It's Friday, it's FREAKANGELS.

    Oh, yes. If you have no idea what that was or why you just watched it... well, that's for the best, probably.


    And g'morning, Whitechapel. It looks like the shit-stick has been swinging pretty wildly this week. Is everyone doing all right?

    Oooh, intriguing... I wanna see Kait, NOW!

    My week has been good really -nothing spectacular, nothing dire, just a good buzz week I got some ink done, bought a new laptop, sang some songs to under-5s, and will flirt with the new girl at the comic shop later. Life is joy sometimes...

    Looooooove the juxtaposition of the two halves on the first page! Beautifully done. And that banter was nice and peaceful and amusing, just what I needed right now.



    And Freakangels Insta-Sobriety is a power I have wished to possess for many years now, so badly....

    As for my week, its been....... long. Yesterday the boss and I dropped a client's nice shiny new $1600 tool box. Wanged it up right good, we did. He was Less Than Pleased. But its alright, we've got a good working relationship with the guy, plus we plied him with one bottle of cheap local beer by way of apology. That fixes everything, right?

    Still keeping me interested.

    And was that a little bit of fan-service sticking in the Freakangels staff of life graphic nice and clearly?

    We have our final Freakangel named, it seems. Crazy Kait? Crazier than 'Kady? C'est la intriguing.

    Oh, yeah:


    You know, from the way Miki pronounced it, I was expecting Ahnuld...

    That first page is achingly beautiful. I just... I just wanna give her a great big hug. Of course, maybe when I know the rest of the story, I'll be afraid to do that. I'm digging the notion of Arkady the former-badass. To me it explains why she is the way she is now.

    All of this week's panels--stunning. It's getting very late in the evening, now. I wonder if we'll get a starry sky over London from Mr. Duffield? With all the city lights gone, it should show up beautifully.

    Awake. Totally awake after watching that horrid icky 80s crap - I remember.

    Thank you, Warren and Paul, for the great story. I wonder if Kait is for for Katherine?

    This week has been like any other week - tired and wonderful, all stuffed into a giant syringe, shot up into both butt cheeks.

    Only one she couldn't understand? Which means Kait is more of an outlier (in whatever way) than Arkady or Mark? Veeeeeery interesting!

    Who's the person whose feet the bottle landed at? And why did (the doctor Freak - can't be bothered to look up their name) not see them. From the boot and calf shape I'm guessing woman - so maybe it's Kait

    80s cop movie references ALWAYS make my day. Thanks for the trailer Ariana, it's one of Stallone's finest performances. What an icon. Cobra is his piece de resistance, his Commando.

    Looking forward to seeing Kait. Makes me wonder, are the Freakangels all the same level of power ability? Or does the fact Mark and Kait go their own way mean they are more powerful? Is a surfeit of power what makes Arkady so crazy? Hmmm.#

    @ indysleaze: wish there were girls working in my comic shop...

    beautiful ep
    should we call that staff of life the kaduceus permaybehaps?
    and kait... is she...
    *deep dramatic voice*
    A COP... ON THE WRONG SIDE OF THE LAWWWW
    ?

    Oops ... it's still early here in the States. I completely missed the frame with the bottle and the boots. Had to go back and re-read (but that's never a chore).

    Even though we've already had some excitement and a lot of character development, I have an idea that now that we've "met" Kait, it's now the beginning of the adventure. We now know and have some idea of the mindset behind each of the 'Angels. A fine story is only going to get better.

    Not that it's been a crappy week; on the other hand, I'm really glad it's about over. The weekends are for personal projects, and I'm really excited about some of the stuff on my drawing board.

    Thanks again, lady and gentlemen.

    Wow. Somehow my hazy mind saw that as KK or Miki's feet. How? I don't know, maybe I thought it was no mere bottle, but a bottlerang, returning unerringly to the place from whence it was thrown.

    But hey! Mysterious Feet! Kait's feet, probably?

    I have decided that I need more drunken people in whatever I'm reading. But ooo, first page. Paul, stop doing the terribly fabulous layouts, will you? it keeps making my brain stall.

    Ohhh, that first page is amaaazing. And interesting - mysterious feet + final angel. Freak angels is the cherry on the cake that is Friday.
  7.  (3894.16)
    Bottlerang. Right.

    Do we put the new ep up too early in the day for some people, maybe

    Cobra reference in Freakangels?!!
    He is DA CURE, and in Judge Dredd he is DA LAAW.
    Great dialogue this week, roll on 32...

    good episode, it seems like we might be seeing the final Freakangel introduced.

    This week has been ridiculously busy, next week is going to kind of suck, and my job will be crazy busy through 11/20, at which point I'm going on holiday to St Lucia. But at least I have time to catch the Freakangels on Fridays and WWTX in a couple of weeks.

    @indysleaze and Texure, not to brag but there are incredibly cool and awesome ladies that work at my LCS

    @warrenellis

    Perhaps when one person reports entirely missing a panel in a page that only has 4 equally sized panels, and another invents a returning bottle, it's time to wonder.
