    How the fuck is it already Friday already? But it is. Here's FREAKANGELS.

    Morning, Whitechapel. How's everyone?

    I've been counting the minutes for two hours. Thank you!I'm in bed with what looks like a flu and nothing to do... But painkilling meds and tea is helping. And then FreakAngels!

    I like this episode. It seems they won't meet just what they were expecting there. And poor Connor. :) Can we skip to next week right now? No? Dammit.

    Good to see the views of all but 1 (or 2) of the FreakAngels together. Doesn't look like the Shoreditch Park lot could organise a mortar attack against Whitechapel. Looks like they can barely scrub a few sticks together. I wonder what Mark and/or Luke might be up to while the cats are away?

    I finally feel a bit better after a string of post-xmas illnesses. Still breakfasting on painkillers and berocca, just to be on the safe side. Off to drink at the Bavarian Beerhouse in Shoreditch tonight.

    I'm pretty, pretty good thankew. Even with the disturbed sleep and tingling gums that seem to be part and parcel of switching to nicotine gum. I'm not going to let a little thing like that piss on my picnic, though.

    That episode was not at all what I was expecting. However, I fear that the gang behaved in exactly the way Luke was expecting. Alice may need to be watching her back during the next few episodes.

    Morning world.
    All's well here. Two fairly big sites got finished this week just in time for a new ep of Freakangels.
    And Coilhouse #2 turned up as well, of which more later.

    We're definitely past magic hour now aren't we? I wonder how difficult it will be to continue to draw "night-lier" panels. Is it just a matter of putting ever less transparent filters over the finished panel or doesn't that cut the mustard (says the guy who couldn't draw a stick with a stick to draw around)

    I agree with Mister Hex. If there ever needed to be a print made, that would be it.

    Fantastic job Paul!

    That final page was a very nice showstopper. "Them belly full, but we hungry / A hungry mob is a angry mob."

    Meanwhile: this has been a very nice week, with work getting done and fun being had.

    ...was it necessary that they all go? Is one lone Alice really enough to keep things together should they go awry?

    Love pages 3-6... great art, Paul! Very dark, very sad. In the event that 'chapel doesn't get fucked up while they're away, I really hope the park folk get a hand up.

    Wow, I hope if any page art ever gets used for one of the covers of the trades it's page 3 of this chapter.

    I recently had an enormous tumor removed from my ass, but upon inspection post-operation it turns out it was just my damned head. Apparently it'd been there a while, but I'm feeling better now.

    Shoreditch appears to be a ruse so far, as I don't see much happening there but cancer of the hope and fail.
    Of course, that makes perfect sense - work out a way to send the majority of them off on a wild goose chase, then slip in after and do horrible things to make them all cry.
    But I doubt somehow that #12 has had the time or leisure to lay around finding out that he/they can teleport, and it won't be long until a real brouhaha starts - but I don't think it'll be around Shoreditch. Which also means that I don't think the Freakangels are going to be keeping their secret from the bulk of Whitechapel's populace for too much longer.

    And somehow, I get the feeling that that's exactly what's being planned. Work the cracks in the cookie until it breaks, then kick the crumbs asses.

    I could be totally wrong, I do seem to excel in that field.

    I love the switchup from the freaked out 'angels in mid-teleport to the spookiness of the glowing eyes at night.

    It hasn't really been mentioned specifically, but I also liked the job Paul did of drawing the raiders prior to this. They looked so ordinary and less than menacing despite their attempted action. I especially liked the bit with the last raider and Kait. He seemed more like a nice kid trying to get her to go on a date with him than someone who'd just been trying to kill her.

    the teleportation page is a killer. totally. obviously.

    Really good episode. I like the way this is developing and the way the world is being built up, all the ambiguities... lovely.

    Me? Hard, hard, bloody, long week - restructure at work, for which I've had to do a huge amount of supporting work - I've survived but 250 haven't. Pretty sick, and living on a cocktail of nurofen, ginseng, vitamins, wine, and Red Bull, none of which I think is healthy.

    What do you mean, Friday Already? This week has DRAAAAGED by.

    Gorgeous episode as usual, boys. Thank you.

    I still don't like Miki. Also, I hope Luke will not be a dick to Alice, and maybe help her out if something happens while the other FAs are gone, because he's probably the only one who can right now.

    And after seeing the close up of the Shoreditch camp... well, they'd have to be heartless to shoot first and ask questions later, so let's hope Miki says the right words.

    Assuming that this bunch round the fire are the guys they're actually looking for and not some completely unrelated bunch of guys that they probably would've offed without even thinking about it...

    Awesome episode - but I want more. From what we've learned here, it doesn't look like those Shoreditch lads could be up to sending mortars, especially after their earlier failed assult-by-boat. I'm thinking someone is pulling the strings.

    N.B. I'm fine, wrote a good short story this week, which was fun. <a href="http://www.daviddarkly.co.uk">Got arrested </a>for breaking the communications act, which was not.
