    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.


    A normal issue of a comic book is around 22 pages. Figure 4 webisodes of FA equals 1 issue of 24 pages. By that measurement, we'll enter issue 18 next week (or the week after is next week is a skip).

    @Rickiep00h

    Sorry if the caps came across as too much
    I was trying to point out that putting Luke in a pit with some irons on might be an inadequate way to restrain a superhuman.
    And the other 10 FAs might have thought of this.

    Cheers

    Yeah, it's been obvious that Luke could escape in pretty much exactly this way but the others have been considering him pathetic for a long while. It's hard not to misunderestimated someone you consider pathetic.

    Jack smokes Panatella's. Reckon he shows up. HE gave Kirk the gun. (With Silencer, natch!)

    'Course, only a fool smokes in the rain. (Uh, guess I'm a fool.)

    I hate to say it, but for the life of me I can't make sense of that last panel. The hand is clear enough, and I figured the thumb had to be going into a bullet wound, but other than that I'm lost. I can't make any other elements aside from the rain resolve into a recognizable form.

    I'm rooting for Luke. That was a good fight scene. Had it been me, I would have stood there and watch him almost drown before offering to help him. There should have been two people watching him, but I think they don't have a lot of experience locking each other down that and they seem to underestimate Luke in general. Kait wouldn't have slipped like Kirk did (I have a feeling Kait will have something to say about Kirk's failure to watch Luke (unless Kirk gains control of the situation before that anyone notices).

    Nevertheless, I want Luke to beat that ass good.

    I don't really trust Kirk and Karl, since it seems like they decided to try and execute Mark (and it wasn't part of the general consensus <--I may have read that wrong but that's what I get). If Luke gets kicked out, I assume they will seek to END him feeling it's all for the best.

    Anyways..I can't wait to see what happens next. The artwork is always just a joy to look at. This week was both brutal (more like primal) and beautiful.

    Very enjoyable, Luke's a fool if he doesn't think Arkady isn't ready for him.

    I agree that the last panel was a little hard to figure out...but otherwise, this was a neat fight scene.

    Ooooh hey, I'mma going to Scarefest today in lexington ky.

    @Louie Huwie - No no, bit of a pisstake at myself. And, you know, writing. THE PLOT and THE STORY and creating CONFLICT and all that. I wasn't trying to be sarcastic toward people, but toward ART. Well, maybe a little sarcasm toward Warren, but he's a totally benevolent internet god and loves us all and wouldn't hurt a single one of us.

    ...would he?

    Okay then, I might be consigned to the Tinfoil Hat Ward for this, but I figure it has to mean something, soooo...

    *deep breath*

    May I direct your attention to the bottom of page two? A matched pair of panels, nearly identical, but for the diabolical glow of Luke's FA juju, carefully nudging the safety off of Kirk's firearm. Hey now... years of working out Henry Boltinoff's Hocus Focus puzzles may be paying off, because I spot another interesting difference: the camo pattern on Kirk's pants. Hmm. Seems a bit odd. I would think an artist would just clone the panel, and then change the significant details. The rain, for exam... holy chikkin nuggitz, the rain. Every drop, streak, splash and ripple is the same. The panel was cloned! Which begs the question: why are Kirk's shorts apparently squirming like Rorschach's mask on Red Bull?

    Or maybe I've just gone a bit yumpy.

    Ah, that was a bit of an oversight! It's just down to a quirk in my working method, and having several people helping with the colouring. Would appreciate if you could put that in the continuity and editing thread, so I can clean that up for the print volume.

    I think this struggle may enble us to see Kirk's powers. I get the feeling that he is a reluctant Freakangel and this may be the kick in the pants to show us what he really has up his sleeve.

    @thewaltonsare: I really, really like that theory. Luke's head might just explode all over the wall with a withering purple glance from Kirk...

    Is it next Friday yet?

    Whatever way it goes, next episode is going to rock! Will Arkady appear and put the smack down on Luke? Will Kirk demonstrate that he's not as useless with the package as Luke thinks he is? Kait is elsewhere, investigating the murder, so I don't think she'll turn up, but I could be wrong. Could be Jack or Sirkka. Could be Caz or Connor or KK. Miki's probably busy. Karl may or may not have his tinfoil on, and may or may not be busy shoring up plants to protect them from the downpour. Then again, when last seen, Arkady was up in his garden with him, and she could drag him along if she picks up on this.

    It'll be fun!

    I know Alice brought in a shotgun, but did anyone ever bother to give her a scoped rifle for when she's up the Watchtower? Figure once she's given warning, that'd be an excellent vantage point from which she could deliver Death From Above.

    What intricate details! this was excellent and hinging on so many decisions here and there that are so very subtle. Luke has been freaking me out (natch!), wondering how much detail he catches about other people when he stops paying attention only to himself. He had to know or be willing to bet very heavily that Kirk would put the gun away and use both hands to unlock the manacles. I'm pretty sure Kirk could have just as easily kept the gun trained while using only one key to unlock. Conclusion: Luke has been paying closer attention to their exchanges than Kirk, who seemed more caught up in his emotions.

    this week I've caught up a lot of the more useless crap in my life and done nothing toward the necessary bits which, all told, is very ordinary for me.

    I'm having a time out until I can learn some manners.
    Eugh I have food poisoning and while Freakangels would normally cheer me up, right now I just want to puke and puke and die.

    Hope the food poisoning goes away soon, Dee! :(

    Everybody's gonna "hear" what's going on, Arkady's gonna snatch 'em all up and put 'em in the same place (somewhere interesting, I bet), and nobody's going to die... yet.

    I imagine if one of them died, the rest of them would feel it. Maybe that's why they're about the banishment instead of the killing. Then again, they're English, and English haven't executed their criminals for a while, right? It might be abhorrent to these kids' psyches on a cultural level to consider a death sentence.

    It would seem that Luke was listening to Jack's speech about what it takes to win a fight way back when, and took it to heart for when he needed it. A thumb in your bullet hole, eek.
