    Miki just cemented her position as my favourite. The last panel of page 3 saw to that with a quickness.

    Still a bit woozy after yesterday's Thursday Night Drunk. Fun was had.

    I think I have the same sense of humour as Kait. I'm not sure if this is a good or bad thing.

    Continuing to grow into something truly great.

    "Anyone who tries to hug me will be shot dead." - Warren shares his motto!

    all nice and good, but we still don't exactly know why these desperate people attacked whitechapel.... dropping mortar shells seems like a strange way of asking for some aid... *the maggot bunny image still haunts me*

    I have been away for ages so i just had a massive catch up, everytime I read some new FA it makes me think about my own work and improve it so as always cheers Warren; also this is a new account as I forgot my old log on and password don't you just hate it when that happens!

    @Cat Vincent yeah, that was my favorite line, as well.

    Great bit of dialogue this week, and the last panel was great... although it doesn't look like Kait actually cares about the whole "two by two" thing, eh?

    This week went by extremely quickly up until yesterday, for some reason. I did manage to finish my last 10 pages of script yesterday afternoon, which makes me feel good, but I secretly know that it's utter shit, so that doesn't make me feel so good. I'll be editing next week, to turn it into something that's not loose drivel, and then start artwork. I'm still not sure if I'm going to do it myself or shop for an artist (they really don't like not getting paid, so I've heard). I'll probably do it myself just for the practice, but we'll see.

    Might try to see Coraline this weekend, as it's the last 3D weekend in the States, but I don't even know if we have a 3D theatre in town. So wish me luck on that. Hope everyone else has a good weekend, too!

    I don't know who is my favorite this week, Miki or Kait. Kait has the best line, though! "Anyone who tries to hug me will be shot dead." I'm going to be snickering about that all day.
  3.  (5091.10)
    well shit....

    how about "anyone who beats me to the whitechapel forum to post about the line 'anyone who tries to hug me will be shot dead' will be shot dead"

    @ Cat Vincent
    seriously, though, you totally beat me to the punch on that one. who among us did not immediately see and hear that line in warren's voice?

    @ warrenellis
    congratulations, sir. you've cemented your reputation as an ornery, murderous, anti-hugging genius.

    ok, now we all love Kait. that's awesome.

    i need to sleep now. i've been arguing with a painting all night, and i'm throwing in the towel. YOU WIN THIS ROUND, you 10"x12" piece of garbage, but i will subdue you eventually. MARK MY WORDS.

    see, this is the relationship i have with my art. healthy, y/n?

    @cat, @budd, @prof, and everyone else who read the hugs line and thought of warren...

    he tweeted yesterday that he would enjoy conventions more if he got to brand people with a hot iron...



    wow. brilliant.

    second best line..."is there any reason...that isn't selfish?" ...words the masters of reality really should consider before they go all lock box and stashed ammunition.

    "Trust me. I'm a Doctor"

    I think I've heard that line or something similar recently... hmmmm
  4.  (5091.14)
    yes; another first thought (was warren) when i read that line. also, the panel 3 page 4 dialog was sort of chilling:

    KAIT: REMEMBER THE FIRST TIME WE ALL AGREED ON ANYTHING?
    KAIT: WE PUNCHED A HOLE IN THE WORLD, FLOODED BRITAIN AND DID GOD KNOWS WHAT ELSE TO THE REST OF THE WORLD.


    as it should be; only warren knows where we are going in this world what is left of this world.
  5.  (5091.15)
    Yep, that punched-a-hole-in-the-world line really made me sit up. Nice opening up of the wider idea.

    The "no hugs" bit was terrific, particularly because I felt, with the art (change of expression) and previous narrative, that Kait's response was directly from mind-reading. No mean trick!

    I do feel as though it needs to move along a bit now, though. But maybe that's just impatience!
  6.  (5091.16)
    Excellent writing—especially the hug bit. I was expecting to wait longer after Warren tweeted that gag.

    But what really does it for me this week is the art. Paul, those layouts are just sublime. Your handling of running dialogue is cinematic.

    I loved the face to face panels on Page 2, and Kait biting her lip and turning away.
  7.  (5091.18)
    Nice. Things are going to get interesting.

    Also, thanks for the new wallpaper! :)

    Oh Miki! "I know where you go to have sex, after all..."

    Miki and Kait started off as my least favourites but they've both won a place in my heart today.

    Also, IS THAT A SWAMP MONSTER in the last panel????

    @Spiraltwist:
    Thank you for the link! I hadn't noticed new wallpaper yet. That's my new background :)

    I saw that too! I'm hoping it's just a dead tree. Because we'll enter a whole new level of bizarre if they get attacked by an Elder God.
