    Gotta wait til the weekend. The Quincy Rant is my all-time favorite bit of your writing and that's saying something.

    It works great as a print volume, and I'm looking forward to reading volume 4 (with the back-story as an intro section, rather than jumping straight in where volume three leaves off).

    I really love the colours of the print volume. It also has a lot more flow in print than it does online and is a lot more comfortable to read. Think I'm gonna stick with it in print only from now on. I find the 6 pages a week a bit jarring.

    Went to my local comic shop for the first time this month yesterday and there was the little beauty waiting for me. Just getting some single comics read before I sit down to read it in one go (hopefully tonight or tomorrow).
    Have to say that at first I couldn't get into the book in its weekly format but then I read the first trade and I was hooked (now I read it a month at a time, so i'm up to date now).

    I much prefer reading in print to reading online, it's just alot easier on the eyes and I'm predisposed to reading things in alot longer bursts than the way it's released online. On the book itself, absolutely brilliant, no complaints here.

    Am I right in saying that the extra splash page we got during the unintentional skip week didn't make it into the book?

    I got it on Thursday. Walked into GOSH! and the cashier was on the phone. I went to pick up a comic and I heard her say "I'm looking for Julian". I looked over and saw she had FA volume 3 in her hand, so I went to the counter and said "I think you're phoning me". It was all a bit freakish.

    I have had a chance to do more than flick through it, but the book feels chunky and the colours are really vibrant on the page.

    Nexus is the only store in Iceland now? I swear there used to be one further north.

    Hmm, my not-so-local independent bookstore must have dropped the ball, they haven't called me yet. Though, they may be a little delayed, being primarily a prose retailer.

    Times like this, makes me wish my local comic shop wasn't quite so.... incompetent. I've tried ordering things from them, even given them money for things, and they never arrive. Or have a record of me giving them money. So I gave up on them, and order through a slower-but-more-reliable shop.

    Picked up 1 & 2 in the US a couple of weeks ago, and then was pleasantly surprised to see 3 pop up in Gosh! Over the three books it works really well... but it seemed to really take both the first volumes to get started. Given the first 2 vol's, the third definitely moved things on nicely and felt like a complete unit. And as people have said, it looks great.

    At least the only one in Reykjavík and surrounding area... At least the only one I know of in Iceland.
    But sure, you can get a few labels in the bookstores but nothing to speak of.

    Received the book today, and it's astonishing how different the art works on paper. Started to buy the paper-version to support the projekt, to make sure there is more Freakangels in the future. But it turned out I really like to read the story a second and third time. And the experience is quite different compared to the web version.

    And the books don't smell weird anymore

    The art looks much better in print - it is much easier to appreciate the details in line and colour (funny that...)

    I'm surprised that the San Diego Skip Week splash page didn't make it into the printed book, as it had such a dramatic impact on Whitechapel that week. And is a thing of great beauty.

    Overall more satisfying to read the whole book than wait for tiny chunks at a time, but i love my Freakangels Friday too much to give it up.
