    @razrangel - they've always taught me the 'ice' or at least that's what I've ever noticed. I write myself, two novels and two poetry collections, and never used practise - but again that might just be something I've never learnt.

    You practice something, and having done so you have practised it. I think that's how I was taught it.

    Great episode this week.

    I agree that if FA is "about" anything, it's the reality of being a human adult. Sure, the kids have unique conditions, but doesn't everyone have a condition? And who hasn't looked back at something they did at age seventeen and winced? And nothing is more human than failing to reach your full potential. I'm not saying I agree with Luke that they should live like Gods. I agree more with KK that they're capable of far more than they currently do. As are we all.

    Paul, I join the growing consensus that its the strength of your art that makes the difference regarding the treatment of the minor characters. They're not stock, they're not cliche. There's a sensitivity that just makes the violence more powerful in contrast. (I hope I don't offend you if I make a favorable comparison to Steve Dillon!)

    Finally, its exciting to be learning of the origins of FA. Or at least seeing them first-hand.
    There's something too calm about Mark thats frightening; something in his eyes
    (and that sounds odd, considering ink doesn't usually portray emotion as such)
    but its a little disconcerting.

    Am I the only one who thinks they're going mad seeing two of the FAs with violet hair?
    I mean, I'm sure one must be a furrier Arkady, but which one? They refer to the cropped top as Sirkka, but it still throws me off.

    And, as has been already said PUSH ALREADY!!


    side note: here in Canada, we learned practice and to have practiced. but thats us. different cultures do entirely different things, let alone spelling.

    See? It's not just me. There's something about the short hair that screams Arkady.

    Well, seeing Sirkka with long purple hair, its just so off to see her with the short and someone else with the long.

    So nope, its not just you. haha

    Of course, I finally decide to read all of FA right when it hits a gigantic cliffhanger, that just so happens to be part of a flashback prolonging the bigger cliffhanger, which would seem to be the appearance (rather, reappearance) of Mark.

    I could go on and on about the many things I have loved about the series, but having missed the boat on that for two years, I'll just say I can't wait for the next six pages! It's going to be tough getting used to reading it this way.
