    @mister hex - Geez, I said it wasn't as simple as riding a bike.

    @ Berserker - I was echoing the Quincy Rant, featured in Freakangels Volume Three, on sale now in finer comics establishments everywhere. You're alright, mate.

    This flashback is getting interesting. Great story.
    Now I want to know more about the "end of the world" than the follow up to episode 0072.
    But this could take a while.
    Even if these are impulsive teenagers, they're still British.
    Doing something drastic or irrational, or viciously mean has to get through their sense of decency and fair play. (HEAR HEAR!)
    I'm thinking that perhaps for what happens to the world they must get pushed over the brink, but if they're going to discuss it in open forum this could take a very long time and many pages.

    So this is how it went down? looks exactly like how I imagined a bunch of angsty super teens to decide the fate of a city...heh



    oh this weekend was weird.
    my ex girlfriend came in to visit and we decided to go to a party friday night. I dropped the kids off at a friends house and when i came back, she had already decided we were all going dressed as super heroes. she was batgirl (the only one with a ready made costume dammit), and I managed to pull off a pretty sweet green lantern. We mutilated one of my husband's shirts and turned it into a kinda tube top over some black mesh and under a little leather jacket. Then I took some green eyeliner and eye shadow and gave myself a domino mask. I was quite proud. my husband was nightwing (with a blue scraggly mohawk...)
    The party was a weird kind of rollercoaster of uncomfortable emotions...I hadn't been out socializing in years really, and as soon as I got there this adorable little red head sat herself at my feet and proceded to flirt heavily. I was totally caught offgaurd, and being the big awkward dork that I am, I didn't know what to say, and she ended up leaving dejectedly after about twenty minutes. sigh...
    but then an ex friend who annoys the hell out of me every time I go in public around him, started in on missing us and blah blah, and really kept me rather upset the whole night. I got consoled a little when he got his nose broken "accidently" during some stupid party drama that happened in another room.
    I also managed to step in a young couples....leavings...on the bathroom floor. ew.
    so by the end of the night with all the drama and stress, my two glasses of wine had turned to horrible pain in my belly, and so all halloween I was either sick to my stomach or in bed feeling like poo. I slept through trick or treating...;(

    @thud
    I know what you mean about being more interested in the flashback than the rooftophanger being resolved. I keep imagining that this entire volume is going to be flashbacks and we'll have to wait for volume 5 to find out what happens next, but I doubt it'll go that way.

    @Paul Duffield
    Wait, purple hair dye is the simplest solution? Not A Wizard Did It?

    Well, I suppose it is possible that some rather bright person in Whitechapel could be using woad (at least in part) to create a blue/purple dye...

    Hair dye or not, is there any evidence that the package affects hair color at all?


    Not really. I will say that I've noticed that all the Freakangels are naturally dark-haired from what I can tell. However, since they are all from the same "flat little village" that could easily be from the genestock of people in their hometown. Pale skin, Purple eyes and Psychic powers appear to be the hallmarks of the Package. I recall nothing about hair.

    I'm having a time out until I can learn some manners.
    They have psychic powers dammit! Changing hair colour through the simple power of thought is probably just an easy trick. I mean, we've been shown that they've got a certain control over autonomic functions, KK sobering herself up in moments and Kirk lowering his metabolism, for instance. I'd say that the most elemental explanation, the Occam's Razor for me, is that it's just a matter of consciously wanting it. And why not? Dyed hair looks cute on girls.

    I read Episodes 1-74 in one sitting and now I am hopelessly an addict. High marks, all. Especialy Mr.'s Ellis and Duffield. Correct me if I'm wrong but doesn't episode 75 come out in like, six hours? *taps vein and sterilizes syringe* Dish it up, cookie, junkie needs his yum yums!<a href="http://www.myspace.com/limited_moon">
