    ...or it's a freak occurrence of nature. There's nothing to say that nature can't be synchronized. Randomness, by its very definition, can include patterns, repetition, or synchronization. I think, given the lack of evidence, "It just happened" is just as likely an argument as "Some outside force did this".

    Which is why I said it was not definitive.

    I definitely think Warren is laughing at us... especially at the moment "Conspiracy" was uttered. Can you hear him?
    I don't think the FAs were manufactured or test tube babies or anything like that. We know a little about some of their parents. They were just born at the exact same moment with "the package deal". I mean, they've got freaking superpowers. I think we can throw away scientific reasoning, don't you?

    :-)

    I think we're all agreed then.

    Plus it's born at the same time, not concieved at the same time. Arkady could be physically three months younger than Kait and a huge spectrum in between. When you throw out various definitions of "born", there's really no way to know anything about it. At this point, any arguement for one can be turned to the other.

    Warren's work has used the "conspiracy" meme in the past. S'all I'm sayin', yo.

    And yes, he's laughing at us. I, for one, am glad I've given the Master Storyteller a good chuckle at my obvious stupidity by commenting on a story already in progress.

    Mark: Dead? Not Dead? We know nothing. Time will tell.

    Time and Warren.

    One of the things I fear the most in life nowadays is FA skip week. They make me all sad inside that gooey place where my heart is suposed to be.

    Hmm. From what happened to Jack, he got a good bonk on the head but later he's all healed up. Granted, the wound's on the top of his head, but still.

    I have this vision of Mark getting his head blown to pieces and falling into the water, and then a few hours later just bobbing back up, intact again.

    "All we know about Luke is he's kind of an intellectual, stuck-up Ubermenshen wannabe that, in reality, is kind of on the bottom of the pile."

    Well, and that his method of dealing with criticism from Arkady is to threaten to force her to watch while he rapes his ex-girlfriend.

    @oda
    That's me too! I was almost SURE this week we'd have a skip, but now I'm dreading one next.

    @ diello

    My guess is we'll get one between 44 and 45

    I think we're about to reach the top of the arch, and Warren does like to jerk us around around there... we are totally due here.
    NOT ASKING FOR ONE, by the way, Mr. Ellis ;)

    In seriousness, drawing and writing a comic, including a webcomic, is hard. It is difficult work. If Warren and Paul choose to take a week off to catch their breaths, that's a good thing. Among other things, it means that they're far less likely to burn out on Freakangels and end the project. All skip weeks do to me is build the anticipation for the next Freakangels installment, so I am cool with them.

    Oh don't get me wrong... I am all about taking a well-deserved break to catch your breath. The anticipation is agony, but I secretly love it ;)
