    I'm having a time out until I can learn some manners.
    Afternoon. I'm going to have to recommend Relentless over Red Bull... one gets more. More! = :D

    Wow, what a great episode of FA. I really loved the last full page panel. Also I kinda noticed that there seemed to be even more detail than previous chapters. Maybe Paul is getting even better (like the details of the bootlaces in p2 panel 1). It makes sense I reckon; you do something for fifty episodes, you'll be better at 50 than at 1.

    So, anyway, now I'm wondering - did Kait kill that guy, or did she find his body? From the composition of the art I reckon she's just come across his body.

    I'm going to make myself a bacon sandwich now for brunch.

    I love that panel looking up at Luke and the new villager, absolutely gorgeous.

    Second half of introductions complete, KK and Sirkka doing actual work! Gotta feel for Miki, trying to keep any sort of competent collection of medical supplies in a broken world seems among the more impossible of their tasks. And now we have a murder? Hmm.

    A good way to end the day, signs of life in their world at least, while winter keeps trying to impose itself here. Time to sleeeeeeeeep.

    Mmm KK gets sweaty. We haven't seen enough of KK since the near the beginning. And the new story arc gets going too.

    This week I have been unexplainably tired. There was about 10 minutes yesterday that I couldn't for the life of me think what day it was, and I've been doing stupid things all week.

    Hooray for new plot twists!

    The artwork as she chews her lip while looking at the depleted medical supplies is subtle and brilliant.

    A. Wanna see how utilibelt Kait handles this.

    B. I will be in New Orleans.

    Morning. Just got a call from my dad. Probably keeping my abreast of pretty much everything I already know inre: Watergeddon.

    And then there's this wonderful morning Freak bit. Getting into the murder and rape pretty early this time around, eh? Fuck all that community-building shit! Let's see some blood!

    Coworker: What's that? (pointing at screen)
    Me: A comic.
    Coworker: A comic about digging?
    Me: Yes. Yes, it's a comic about digging.

    I was more than half expecting (and by "expecting" I mean "hoping") that the caption on Kait's panel would read "Kaitlyn: The Goddamn Batman".
    • CommentTimeMar 27th 2009
    Oh man, that last panel. Gorgeous. Beautiful decaying building, blood spatter, and now I can't wait for next week!

    I really like the excellent pacing of the writing, the dialogue and the chemistry between the FreakAngels -- the way they're organizing Whitechapel is both plausible and pleasant to witness. Paul's art is gorgeous as always, with special mention to the last panel -- not only I agree with what MundaneJoy said, I also add the perspective is fucking exceptional.

    I agree about the perspective. It's deceptively difficult to get right, and almost transparent when it's perfect. Good work. The last page is excellent, revealing itself by scrolling down a browser window adds something to it. I reckon the TPB version will make the body much more prominent and assertive, just by dint of it being immediately visible.

    @Greasemonkey: It's balmy where you are? Methinks you're up North, because it's chilly enough here in Melbo, by Australian standards.

    • CommentTimeMar 27th 2009
    I really like the shovel panel, m'self. Something about the texture and detail in it looks really... good.
