    It's Friday, and that means FREAKANGELS: a sweet little comic about being bestest friends 'til the end of the world. And then not so much after.

    How's everyone? Were we back to school this/last week? The internet just about halved in chatter -- the sort of drop you'd expect from all the college folks being busy, all the parents scrambling to get kids out the door, and all the teachers falling over half-dead. It's been a bit eerie...

    How many more eps till the end of volume three? Because I can't wait to own it.

    I'm alright. Just alright. No better.

    Eh, I'm doing ok. Work's been better the last few days. The kids have gone back to school though, making my walk to/from work a bit of a minefield.

    Ha ha ha, thumbs jabbed into bullet wounds. Classy, and entertaining.

    Being back in school....makes my head hurt. Just, hurt.
    • CommentTimeSep 11th 2009
    Awesome indeed!
    Way too exciting for this morning, hungover and my head hurts, and you start the day by blowing my mind!!

    Not complaining though.

    Glad to see something is happening.
    Love the writing as usual, love the art...
    A few questions... What is up with Kirk's pants? From panel to panel, um, they change. And, I know it's raining, but what the hell is up with that last panel? Does heavy rain mean that pants transform, and the cliffhanger must be vague?

    These pages are jsut awesome (as usual)! Dan for having to wait until next friday for more...

    Doing well here. The college students have invaded the neighborhod of Boston I live in. Trash, stupidity, and bottles/cans/beer cups are everywhere. As long as they keep out of my way ad act semi-civil I won't have to tase any of them *twitches*

    Great update. I just have one question: what am I supposed to see in the very last panel? There is rain, and a hand, and... something.

    I am honestly unsure of what happens in that last panel. Someone's thumb is going into someone's flesh, but who(m)?

    Anyway. Awesome stuff.

    Personally? Uni is going to kill me this weekend, and if it doesn't, I should probably just spare myself the pain of future deadlines anyway.

    Awesome. Brutal. Excellent. At the first page I was nearly yelling at the screen, "Don't do it, Kirk."

    Though I do agree that the last panel is a bit unclear. Took me a few minutes staring at it before I realised it was showing Luke's hand jabbing a finger into Kirk's bullet wound. All the rest of it, though, is pure awesome.

    Luke's thumb in Kirk's leg hole. You can tell because it's Kirk's shorts. On that subject: FUCKING OW. I want Kirk to win, but I think Luke's more of a dirty fighter. Or they could just do the "sibling" thing and fight it out until they're both tired of it and then pick themselves up out of the puddle. And then maybe continue the fight elsewhere.

    As far as school starting: this is the first year in the last five that neither my wife nor I are going back to college in the fall; her because she's graduated and has a job, and me because we can't afford it right now (and my GPA is too bad for anyone to transfer me in.) So I have a bit of a weird feeling.

    Add that to the weird feeling from getting our mortgage preapproval letter in the mail yesterday, and I can honestly say I've never really been in this position before.

    Luke's thumb, kirk's leg (he has the camo shorts on, and he's unlikely to do it himself).

    Paul, your subtle sense of which details to include is extraordinary. I've been blown away by your distressed wallpaper and shadows cast by blood droplets before, but the panel where Luke's face is underwater! The blood thinning as it disperses, and depicting the momentum of raindrops breaking the surface of the water? JFC.This adds incredible gravity to the violence, and is what sets your work apart from most anything I've seen.

    I knew it was going to happen that way, as soon as I saw Kirk and Luke alone.

    Never trust a snake.

    Thumb into a bullet hole to distract him enough so that Kirk can't use his powers... Beautiful!

    Paul -- I'm with most everyone else on here, the art this week was absolutely stunning. Thank you.

    Warren -- Wonderfully written scenes... Generally the comic has me curious to what's going to happen next, this is the first time I can remember it getting my heart rate up and being this exciting. I love it! (And, because I've never said it before, the 6 pages per week layout works wonderfully, please keep it up.)

    you know, i still say "Is Friday. Is Freakangels." to myself when i wake up on friday mornings and remember.

    I am well, m'lady, and thanks for asking. School's been back here in Indiana for a few weeks now.

    Another episode that makes me wish it was next Friday already, which is what it's supposed to do. Well done!

    I think over the next four-five (I'm assuming a skip week) weeks we're going to see our first Freakangel fatality. And unfortunately, I think it'll be Kirk. Luke surviving and escaping ups the stakes for the remaining Freakangels and draws Alice more fully into their family. With Kirk gone, someone will have to be the primary Watchtower caretaker, and that person will most likely be Alice. Also, Kirk's death will probably provoke a vengeful manhunt by the other Freakangels. Which also gives us a good reason to begin exploring the wider world outside of Whitechapel, even while inside Whitechapel the murders create further tension.

    Remember that "issue-wise" next week will begin issue 18, which will end Valume 3.

    Actually, each volume of FA is 24 chapters of 6 pages each (144 pages). But yes, the end of Vol 3 is coming up early Oct.
