    It's Friday, it's FREAKANGELS. In which MEGAFWOOSH.

    Morning, Whitechapel. How's everyone doing? My weather's back to normal after a couple long cold weeks, thank goodness. I see some of the UK got a bit of white for xmas -- check in so we know you didn't freeze in the night, yeah? (Yes, all the other snow-country folks should check in, too, but you I at least expect to be prepared for freezing weather.)

    Balmy here. Boring, actually. Not an earthquake in sight.

    The link to 0080 isn't on the last page of 0079.
    Only found it when I went back to read 0079 from page 1.

    Pretty dramatic episode! Appreciate the effort to give it that ring of truth.
    This is what it would most likely be. Conflicts and going over the edge.

    Yep -- got our first proper snow beginning last week here in Waterloo, Canada; I fully expect to see no green again until March or so. My back already aches from the thought of all that damn shoveling.

    I begin to understand why the rest of the FA's were pissed at Mark (and accordingly, are now pissed at Luke for pulling the same shit on the normals).

    MEGAFWOOSH indeed! I suppose it's inevitable that everyone's favourite affable psycho pushed the thing through when the rest of them wanted to stop. Can't wait to see what happens when the energy bolt hits - although if Christmas is a skip week we may have to wait a while.

    Weather is heating up here - 34 Celcius tomorrow with thunderstorms. Nevertheless my mood is on an upwards trajectory. I have three more days of work, then a glorious 18 days off! (and it's not as if we're going to be working very hard on the third day :)

    Is that Santa passing by on page 6 panel 1? :P
    I'm expecting a Xmas day skip week, and possibly a New Year's Day skip week too, so we might not get to see the outcome of their work for 3 weeks!

    Snow in central London was fairly pathetic last night. Roads are icy and my wife narrowly missed a biker who dropped his bike on black ice in front of her this morning.

    Paul, those last two pages are classics. You really are raising the bar for art in webcomics.

    Shit, I thought Mark's part in the crash only went as far as being a highly persuasive advocate, not actually forcing it through. I'm surprised they didn't exile him for that alone.

    I should be frolicking in the snow that coats Brighton right now. Well, I say frolicking, more likely sitting in a boozer. Still. I shouldn't be sat at work with all the scary dedicated manager types who made it in, particularly as the piece of work I HAD to finish today was actually completed within an hour. A shitty cap to a shitty week.

    Bristol is bitter cold. Had a brief fall of hail yesterday that looked like someone flinging tapioca balls at the ground.

    And another splendid ep. I wonder if it was Mark doing the pulling there alone of if there's something in The Package that wanted to destroy the world... if in fact that's what it is for.

    Seconding @James Puckett - I am in awe of the quality of the artwork we get to enjoy every week.

    No snow at all in Nottingham, where it's currently sunny, but brisk. However, the inability for us Brits to cope with a little bit of snow plays merry hell with my job as I rely on lorries arriving on time so I can move the rapidly growing stockpiles of material sitting on the yard behind my office..(Christmas is always a hectic time in the glamourous world of the waste industry).

    I'm shivering in the snow down here in Medway, in Kent, but by god my 5 year old is excited. I think he'd rather have snow than Christmas. Just about managed to get him off to school, but I think the hubbys works-christmas-do is snowed off as it's in the sticks. I'm not sad at all.

    I *love* freakangels with a huge huge passion, and it was amazingly incredibly wonderful to see 'it' at last. After all, I guess we sort of know what happens next-ish (though of course I really am looking forward to seeing *exactly* what comes next). Merry christmas, you lot :)

    Wow! Great episode folks. Is this the first time the technique of breaking the sides of the frame has been used in FA? Very effective.

    Mrs. Senacherib. and I are leaving London to have a couple of weeks with her kinfolk in Massachusetts in the U.S. of A. on Tuesday. I'll be back around the 7th Jan, so y'all have a great Christmas and New Year!

    damn - those last 2 pages were just gorgeous

    MEGAFWOOSH indeed!

    There comes a time when you just have to say it.....'damn, this is good shit.' The pacing and suspense of moment are just perfect and I agree with James:
    Paul, those last two pages are classics. You really are raising the bar for art in webcomics.

    I always knew it was going to be massive; I think the FA's ( and the world around them) are about to be overwhelmed.

    Snow is merely a word in the dictionary most of the time here in town; however, the mountains around are starting to get a "smicheg". It is cold by south western colony standards but no white stuff-y in the yard.

    Wow. That dialogue almost like Mark date raped their powers. Which I suppose fits, in a way. Still, damn good story. Gives me something to wake up for on Fridays.

    It's cool here in Colorado, not too much though. We've still got a bit of snow still clinging from last week. I'm trying to choke down a cup of coffee before I get dressed and head out. So that I won't be late to meet my friends....for coffee. The fuck.

    Wow, just wow. Amazing art, and the story just gets better...

    Ummm, life here is so ridiculously complicated and that's not counting the weather that swings from 30 degrees celcius to 20 and raining over night. Climate change... pfffft, so doesn't exist [taste the sarcasm, taste iiiiiit]

    @dextradawn That dialogue almost like Mark date raped their powers. Hah, I think you could strike the "almost like". :grins:

    It's 10 degrees Farenheit here in Saint Paul, which is warmer than it has been. :) It's nice to not worry that the kids' fingers will freeze to the door handle if they forget mittens.

    In-fucking-deed. Very nice, very nice. My best to all and my best-best to Ariana, for it is she.

    The best part? They all went along with it. No wonder they feel guilty.

    It's odd, but I don't know that I've ever considered FA a webcomic -- it's a comic that sees initial release on the web, yes, and is free in that medium, but it feels like it's (brilliantly) written and designed for the print collections. Maybe that's just me.

    It's raining in Miami, flooding, to be precise. We went through the entire hurricane season without so much as a thunderstorm, and now at the end of the year the weather's tearing the place up. We're also getting a cold front this weekend, all the way down into the 60s. This is a very weird place to live.

    No snow here in Lincoln, though some places a bit lower in the county have had 6 inches today. I cycle to work so fingers crossed for none till 5pm!

    Another excellent episode/issue. +1 for the art, the last two pages especially.... Wow! Most scary Mark "pulling" at their powers, so they damage the local area, and the area they are targeting? Wonder which causes the "world ending" trauma.
