    I don't even remember how I got here. Followed a link somewhere, got hooked, and forgot everything else. Lol. Sped through it all in four days - didn't do a lot of actual working at work.

    It began w/ Warren bitching and moaning on his main site one morning in 2009, because Whitechapel was bitching and moaning about the full frontal of someone's junk. "What the heck could everyone be bitching and moaning about? It can't just be about a picture of dick." Indeed, it was about much, much more, and thereafter my Friday mornings belonged to Warren and Paul and Ariana.

    I was lurking & reading here in Whitechapel for a while before I first discovered FA. And here I am, less lurky, still reading in Whitechapel now FA's ended.

    FA is one of those things I wish I could expunge the memory of just so I can re-experience how it felt reading it for the first time.

    sigh

    I was at second hand comic store in West London,speeding like fuck wading through the 50p bargain basement like the demented addict i am.I found a few blinders and took a massive pile of good-shit to the counter.A cool guy saw some of them and said, "Ahh, you like Warren Ellis,yes? You should check out www.freakangels.com."He was beaming and all-a-smiling. What a nice geezer!I think he got the sack from the shop for being human or something...bastards!

    I knew Ellis from a bit of his previous work. I was cruising the new releases table in my local shop and picked up the first trade the week it came out. Asked the guy working and he told me about the series, and told me I could check it out online if I wanted. I am pretty sure after I found the site I read everything that had been posted until that point in one sitting. That was a good day. Been around pretty much every friday since, and spent many and hour in between reading, laughing, lurking, and very occasionally posting on Whitechapel.

    I stumbled across Whitechapel when I was doing a google search for "Misty Comic The Sentinels" and found the remake/remodel challenge for Misty covers. My only regret is that I didn't stumble across it in time to put in an entry.

    I was doing a random trade paperback search on Ebay and came across the first 3 signed hardcovers for super cheap. Also remembered some reviews on older episodes of CGS and AC podcasts. Figured it would just be a quick read and resell, but I was engaged by the end of the first volume and hooked by the second. The unique personalities of the characters perfectly balance each other other. I also sense some anime influences as well? I'm looking forward to catching up on the storyline and perusing the boards.

    A very cool lady gave me this outrageous quote about stabbing and brain damage and god and it was attributed to Warren, so I visited his LJ to see what was up and it seemed intriguing. Freakangels began a few months after that which seemed like a pleasant surprise, though quite confusing. I was most pleased there were other lonely psychos out there in winter 2007-08 trying to survive the holidays somehow. I liked that someone around here had a healthy sense of what to do with all the internet shut-in behavior. Later on of course while he was borrowing my work I described the process incorrectly in a letter and got him very mad at me, leading him to commit a series of felonies which still seem pretty baffling. For the most part though it seems like others committed the actual violence while he was stationary by a computer. I'm assuming. He's a great writer, with a gift for kindness sometimes, who probably owes me a laptop and a few years of my life back. A lot of time it was no fun being a Julian Assange type getting monstered by a secret society stooge. You can think of it like George Clinton though, who was constantly sampled and never paid for it, eventually helping huge movements get started. And they're trying to nail Murdoch on the hacking and wiretapping and so forth, what does that mean about this place?

    Thanks for all the help with the homicidal internet stalkery btw, it was really great getting no cooperation at all when all those people started dropping dead. We used to say "comic book violence" as a way of writing off innocent ideation. When someone is sounding mean you could always say it was just "comic book violence", now that explosions constantly rock the Earth and life as we know it has been changed permanently, I think, well, at least he was help surviving that horrible winter.

    And also, I think that very cool lady poisoned my tomato juice but I still think she's great. :)

    Honestly I was visiting the grave Of john Wyndham to plant a triffid. When this hand holding a mobile phone with web browser suddenly shot up out of the ground whoosh like a friggin lady of the lake but in compacted grave dirt so it was more like rumble then a whoosh. and I'm all like "hope you haven't had that on all the time in there roaming charges will give you a coronary mate"

    But it had the Freak angels website already loaded on screen which is nice as some phones take ages to load if you just have the site up on Google so i pried zombie Wyndham fingers off breaking a couple clean off the knuckled accidentally of course which i put in my pocket to sell on Ebay for later

    then went home inspired & rip /i mean bought it off amazon!

    nice!

    One of my best friends, Courtney(random_entity) and I were drinking at his house, and he showed me one of the old threads with awful pictures. After finding out that they were from a board for a Warren Ellis comic, I was in.
