    I'm guessing it's this bell-end.

    Just read the first episode again - the characters looked a lot more...Japanese in the beginning.

    Hey Guys,

    Well I just wanted to say that this is a great story I never really spend time on the computer but i read no heroes and decided to check out freakangels. Let me tell you that I couldn't stop reading until I caught up, I even read all the breaks in between. Like i said I don't normally get on the computer much but this comic will keep me coming back every week.
    Thanks

    Fucking Brilliant!
    Running and thinking and glowingeyes, oh my!

    Love how Alice is the one voicing the practical thoughts.

    Today, I shall wrap in my FA throw and attempt to glow eyes at felines in honor of the awesome! I suspect much weirdness and listening to the news, and avoiding evil game day crowd. I hate Black Friday. I say boycott!

    Happy Friday and Weekend, Whitechapel!

    Lovely. I love the glowing eyes thing; that would be so eerie!
    Another awesome eppisode.

    @Thom_Wong - Thank you for voicing the other option, I have the same suspicion.

    Beautiful work, of course, nice to see Alice making herself useful (since she could have just been a burden). I have to agree with the statements of awesome episode.

    Thanksgiving was different, my partner and I cooked for my younger brothers, it was just the four of us this year. We had a good time, even though it wasn't the norm. I have to work in a few hours, I expect mad rushes of crazed shoppers, but refuse to be stressed about it. If people are impantient, they'll just have to deal, and if they get out of hand... I've kicked people out of the store before. My fellow booksellers are concerned, but I've done this too many years to get worked up anymore. I agree though, black friday should be boycotted.

    Aha, my namesake raises his ugly metaphorical head! I quite like how the tension presented itself here, Its gone all action drama. I find it odd that Alice, of all people realised a possible connection before everyone else did but perhaps being high and mighty isn't all it seems. I look forward to the brutality I'm fairly sure is round the corner.

    I signed in for the first time in a couple months, just to rant about how amazing page 4 is.

    But everyone seems to have it covered, as usual.

    Caught the nod to the theory of the 8-circuits of consciousness. Totally unexpected. Makes total sense. Fucking nice!.

    For those who aren't familiar, it's fascinating stuff.

    Edit - couldn't resist:

    Amazing episode! Loved it so much! Can't wait for next week (I'll bet it'll be a skip week, just to toy with us, yeah?)
    I love being reminded of how intelligent Alice is :)

    My holiday was playful and fun, because I didn't spend it with relatives, I spent it with family (family being, those who are there for you, which makes my friends my true family). We didn't have turkey, we had chicken, but we did have pumpkin pie. Then we played a card game called Munchkin. It was very fun.

    I loved the dust effect! It was awesome. And page four, god-damn, I love it.

    The damage to the builing looks a lot worse now that you can actually see it, huh? What a mess.

    Yeah, now this is what I'm talking about, action, reaction, Alice's dialog was great.

    I'd put it down to a combination things. First, her survival and tactical instincts are probably a little better honed than those of the 'angels. They've spent much of the past six years growing fruits, treating sicknesses and slipping off to shag the occasional lucky Lambeth Road lad. She's been living hand-to-mouth in the world outside Whitechapel. While I don't see Alice having the raw brainpower of the 'angels, she's had to rely on her wits a little more than they have. Secondly, Alice is an outsider. Remember that we are still within the same 24-hour period that began in Episode 1. As an outsider (albeit one who's received a lot of information and access via Conner) she's more likely to notice things that the other 'angels miss because they're too close to the situation. Thirdly most of the 'angels probably haven't run into things that are hard to do for them. They all seem to be some style of genius-level intellects who also have superhuman powers. It's quite probable that any one of the 'angels could align a morter to hit a target by doing the math in their heads, so they wouldn't immediately consider how difficult that would be for a normal human and what the implication of their 'cave getting hit would be. Finally, their 'cave was hit, there was probably a bit of an emotional shock factor from that.

    With all that going for her, it's not surprising to me that Alice would be the one to figure it out before the rest of the 'angels. And probably just before the rest of them when you consider how quickly KK understood how Mark could be among them undetected once Alice drew everyone the bigger picture.

    Even more interesting to me is the way that Alice is obviously anticipating Mark's next strike - against Kirk and the Watchtower. Thus, she's getting the rope in anticipation of needing to rescue him.

    And on a personal news note, it's doubly FREAKANGELS Friday for me, since my softcover of Volume 1 arrived in the mail today.

    Awesome :D I love the border you've used.

    That 8 circuits thing... it reminds me of this.

    I'm liking Alice. I'm liking the sweep of movement here. It's established the jerks with mortars are actual evil tools. And we know Mark is out there. Is he a puppeteer or puppet?

    It'd be nice to see what it is they're seeing through those glowing eyes.

    Woohoo Mark is coming! Much love for panel 4 here too. Thanks you guys for another great break in Friday.

    Thanksgiving was spent away from family this year, so no big horror stories. However, I am to go ringing the bells tomorrow to collect money for the Salvation Army. I will be in front of the biggest discount store in town. I think I will get a good gauge as to how things are economically for locals at least.

    As everyone has already said, page 4 is glorious.
    But why is everyone so surprised that its Village of the Dammed-esque? Warren said from the beginning that his initial idea was the Midwich Cuckoos, all growed up. Which is of course, what the Village was based on.
    Now, I'm just wanting a full group shot like that. Possibly a wallpaper?
    JJ has a point, in that being an outsider, she's going to have a very differnt view of things. Especially seeing as the Freaks have been in each others head 24/7, since birth. No matter how individual they are, its going to mean they have very simmilar thought processes. And shes a very quick learner, as its been said, its still been less than a Day, and shes already cottoning on to an extent of what they can do. "Don't have time, just put a map in my head".
    And I know that this is the story of "what happens next". But from the memoirs of 'Kady, and Kates comment on "Same deal as when we used to be hunted", tell me its not just me who wants to know what happened before?

    Also, Paul, as usual, the art is stunning, the dust particles in the first 3 pages is a brilliant touch. Took me half a second to figure out what it was.
    @thecat17, hehe. Bastard Simians.
