    It's Friday, it's FREAKANGELS.

    Pushing the comics live a couple minutes early this morning because I don't know how long this wireless connection is going to hold. My modem died this morning -- no blinky lights, no power at all. Not even when I hit it. Really hard. So, I am currently on the EEE at the far side of the house where I get someone's barely-within-range signal (everyone say "thank you anonymous Belkin modem somewhere east of Ariana") and pushing all the necessary buttons before it fades.

    How's everyone else?

    You may have numbered the page incorrectly? Episode 68 is not linking to it?

    I was kind of hoping that another FreakAngel was waiting outside the pit to finish him off. I wonder what Kait is up to?

    Had a reasonable week. Came home from a good weekend in Norfolk on Monday, felt like absolute shit yesterday, but not so bad today.

    Not sure what you mean, Kradlum? The "Episode 69" link at the bottom of ep68 is working for me...

    Great episode - didn't see Luke winning and then not killing Kirk. More tension building up.

    Long shitty week now over

    WPA is for losers...

    Luke just got a whole lot more interesting. Thanks to Ariana and the anonmyous Belkin for getting this one out to us in the face of technical difficulties!

    Off to my sister's wedding in a moment. Typing that out has made it all feel very momentous. The girl's done good!

    last panel, fish-eye = camera?

    hmm.

    I am a couple of days away from finishing fasting, so am happy.

    @ maoli

    I think it's supposed to be the light bulb from page 6 panel 2.

    Thank you anonymous Belkin modem somewhere east of Ariana!

    My first thought at the second panel of page 5 was "That's not good." In a flash, I imagined that the containers in the foreground had until recently contained gasoline, paint thinner, or something else highly inflammable, and that the building was about to become a raging inferno.

    Or, perhaps, I am merely an arsonist at heart and, despite years of resisting it, still have the instincts to go along with the path.

    @ maoli @ Wagner

    I'm looking at that and thinking security cam of some sort maybe?? Hidden among the bulbs?
    Just an idea. I get what both of you are saying. It is fish-eye... it is by light bulbs...

    Other than that, I'm still awake, too drukn to sleep. Was a good night of playing guitar, comics and beer.

    Paul, what you did with the rain is exquisite.

    Another quick comment after reading it a few more times... and a few previous weeks... maybe that is "the eye of Mark?" We really don't know the extent of all their powers yet... just that they are really damn powerful. Maybe he is looking in to see what to mess with next...

    @Wagner - Nope. Look real close.

    In the last panel the light bulb would be off to the right, back in the room from the previous panel, behind the door Kait's just walked through - the bent door frame/floor tiling is the clue there.
    So we're seeing Kait from a point of view up and to the left of that door, from somewhere in the room she's just entered.


    Looks like I was right about Kirk getting his ass handed to him by Luke, too.

    "thank you anonymous Belkin modem somewhere east of Ariana"

    @ZJVavrek - I'm thinking that they were maybe fresh water containers. Kait didn't seem to interested in them. I would think if she did we would have gotten more than a cursory look at them. But hey, just speculation here. Maybe we'll find out how good WC's fire department is.

    @Warren - The resolution of the Kirk/Luke fight is both final and open-ended and it's great. Luke's still a shit, but I like him a tiny, tiny bit more today. He's a rapist, but he's not a murderer. That's going to be some fun moral ground to cover in the future.

    @Paul - I loved the composition on page five, panel two. Something about the framing, I think. That's not to say the others (like the fish-eye) aren't good, but that one seemed really simple and direct and effective.

    Thanks a ton, team. Always my favorite five minutes of the week.

    Also: why is the door (far left, in the last panel ) opposite of the door Kait just walked through boarded over? That can't be good.

    @rickiep00h - re: the containers - I'm with you. No plumbing in Whitechapel, so water makes sense.

    Obviously the place has been occupied ( I'm going out on a limb, but it seems like a sturdy one, so here goes ) and by the evidence I'd say it is/was occupied by Phil, Drew, Tom, and what's-her-name that Kait tenderized just before the rain started.

    Maybe I was too soon, it is working for me now too.

    Wow. Luke didn't kill him. I'm... surprised.
