    The reanimation sequence was genuinely creepy and beautifully drawn, but "Oh bum" is line of the week.

    Nasty! Paul does good gore- it's clinical, precise, even clean, but the more shocking for that. It seems very real. I've had a little too much of that this week- I was on the G20 protests in London and saw a few too many busted heads and truncheons swinging. But also some inspiring idealism and courage.

    This was an intriguing episode; I don't think the murderer was an angel, but the angels' responses highlight very current debates about immigration and so on. You take in refugees, but inevitably there's the odd psycho among them- does that justify closing your borders and just protecting the people already there?

    @hellisforhipsters i watched the pics in the Mx newspapers, in one article, they said that the protester were 4000 and that the UK gov send 5000 cops... way to go UK ! :D

    Back to this friday episode...
    I just fall in love with this episode after looking the blood over the body, ... Kait is quickly challenging Alice as my favorite character, also i am very curious about how many "unique" abilities has some or each of the Freakangels.

    Ahhh, Freakangels friday ! the first thing i do when i get to the office is read the episode, great way to start a day ;).

    The protesters were all very vague with what they were protesting about. I enjoy watching wannabe anarchists get beaten.

    I'm having a time out until I can learn some manners.
    Oh man, the G20 people are so happy they're not protesting in Strasbourg, I guarantee you NATO is nowhere near as kind as the British police, as bad as they can be [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9GGc7KcvqtE].

    Man, I should have saved up a couple weeks worth of episodes... I'm going to be speculating for a good long while about where this one is going.

    I've been following FA since the very first publication and I'm addicted. I never really felt like posting anything here before but this episode was just WOW. It may sound sick but I loved the cut throat. Brilliant and nasty job, Paul. Warren always rockin' as well. Congrats everyone. Looking foward to figure what mess Luke's gonna put on now.

    And, ah, stone_lion: greetings!

    I wanted to hug little "Chief Inspector Kait" but I didn't want to be shot dead.

    Not sure about Kait's precision with her last line this week. Seems like it may have been a newcomer being pushed by, say, Luke...

    A bit easier for those of us with the omniscient narrator view, though, eh?

    I feel really bad now about theorizing it was Kait who'd cut the shit out of that guy at the end of the last episode... especially after seeing Chief Inspector Kait with the little birdie.

    I do wonder if the 'angels were gifted randomly with their abilities, or if they developed them consciously. The "user-specific" powers we've seen so far are just about perfectly suited to their respective users, though maybe their personalities were instead formed by the powers they already had. It's an interesting chicken-and-egg question.

    I am liking this new volume alot.

    Just got hired today after 3 and a half months of unemployment. Will be celebrating with alcohol later today.

    Loved the art as always, but the idea that one, if not all, of the freakangels has the potential to reanimate dead bodies, ,albeit temporarily, disturbs me.
    Or was this an attempt to download info from a dead brain, in the same way some can recover data from a fried computer?

    Best episode in quite a while for me. The flashback sequence was gorgeous and Kait is fast becoming my favourite Freakangel.

    @ Artemis - Good point; I think you're spot on with your former argument. We get good at things which mean a lot to us. I think 'the package' probably adapted to their individual psyches and manifests in specific talents dependent on their personalities and desires.

    N.B. Does anyone remember an episode of 'The Authority' where the villian was a preacher who's psychic power increased exponentially with every mind he reached. Then a victim just had to touch someone else, and the psychic 'virus' was passed on. After discovering his power he went from being something like a car salesman (I forget the specifics), to a worry for the authority, to a demi-god within a matter of months; as his psychic disease spread around the globe, each new victim under his spell was another battery to draw upon.

    I think Warren might have written it.

    Anyway... yeah, I wonder if the FAs power could work like that. If it could, it would explain why they took the threat of Mark so seriously.

    I think the quetion about the specific powers we have seen so far is pretty much just the individuals exploring their powers with the tools their personalities provide them with. As i believe was pointed out anyone of them could probably achieve the amazing things that arkady has done, but cant because they havent explored as much.
    Pretty much they seem to have no limits to what they can do. The only limit seems to be what they allow themselves to do.
    Pretty awesome when you consider it. Each of them a God. Whitechapel as the New Olympus?
