    Amazing. I always forget what Friday means and then I check warrenellisdotcom and am delighted like a non-denominational kid at christmas. I was glad that 'Kady was quick enough, but I knew there would be a price for her swiftness as soon as I saw the teleport. Excellent episode, love it as always.

    Sorry to hear that La Peste is still with you Ariana.

    Great episode and now, children, we go underwater! Yeaaaahhh....

    Either Arkady's gone, or KK will pull her up, right? What if this crisis causes KK to discover her own teleporting skills, like a mother lifting a car after a crash to save her child?

    Warren's laughing response re the 2.6 seconds comment really has me wondering now. Are we in for an 8-page ep covering the next 10 years in the FA's lives all at once? Or, will the first panel of ep 85 read: "Ten Years Later . . ." ?

    Or it could just mean that the episodes are moving from weekly to bimonthly.

    great episode

    I am ageing by the hour with stress waiting on a reply for my first Pitch to a publisher, I might be dead by next week from stress

    Hmmm.... (stroky beard moment)(but that I have no beard)

    Beautiful and devilish.

    Also, I am done with this half-assed not-quite-a-cold that has invaded my skull and won't just get on with it.
    Fucking germs.
    or bacteria.

    Hope all have a wonderful weekend!

    Oh dear. You seem to have successfully moved us from one cliffhanger to another. Good job, sir.

    Also, I'm aware that it probably wasn't the intent of the drawing, but my first thought on Page 1, Panel 3, was "Man, she's got nice breasts." Kudos to you, Mr. Duffield.

    My week... On Monday, I felt it should be Friday. I felt this very strongly. I think that captures how my week has been. (Well, no, it doesn't include how I was a week behind on classwork and seem to have successfully caught up, which is something to be proud about.)

    Excellent! I hope she's gone to save Kait.

    Panel 3 just became the no 1 exemplar of comicwork that blows me away. Absolutely stunning graphics and currently one of the most gripping storylines around; who could ask for more?!

    Interesting week this one. Acquired a dog (after friends moved overseas). Very cute but jeez, ease off on the 5 am barking alarm call for the love of any deity you care to name ... Went to a seminar on string theory that got me thinking about That Stuff again. And off to see son 'n heir this weekend and maybe take in A Prophet.

    great storytelling

    Thought 'Kady would powerdive off the building - momentum does carry payback.

    I thought Mark for all his bluster looked like toast - so I'm less worried about Kait.

    But I already KNEW 'Kady would save KK that way (aside from getting knocked out by KK's thick head and maybe drowning). I want to see Kait and Mark's last dance.

    Oh, and the underwater scenes? Always my favourites :) Nicely done!

    @draxxx - Oh yeah I love that book. 'Sabout an alcoholic baseball player, innit? 8-O

    @Warren - We are securely on the hook, dammit. You can take your time reeling us in, you sadistic bastard. X-D

    @Paul - I have never ...but NEver, seen rain used so dynamically in a visual narrative, as you have employed it in this sequence. It is practically a character unto itself. EPIC WIN! :-)

    No way arkady is dead.

    I'm still hankering for the showdown with jeebus-like raggedy Mark

    Yikes. Picking em off one by one eh? I love the hand coming from off page!

    Phew, I am feeling way better from my goddamn zombie plague I has Tuesday and Wednesday. My super blood did not let me down!

    If they can heal gunshot wounds, they can heal broken necks too. (Can't they?)

    Hope to see more Mark next week.

    And I hope you feel better, Ms. Ariana.

    Me? It's colder than Christian charity outside today (-14C). And it's Friday-but-not-payday. So there's that.

    I've been worrying about KK for weeks and now I have to worry some more. I'm pregnant, I'm not supposed to worry!

    One of these days I'll have something other than praise to write, but until then, lovely.

    However, let me humbly beg you not to heed that request. The pacing is part of what makes me love this format, as I've said from the beginning. Waiting for it like a floppy would be frustrating. One feels far more involved with the story if it is available once a week, and (while the last few installments don't support this) you don't have to pack each episode with action to keep people interested... thus the wonderful character and story development.

    I am quite satisfied with my 2.6 second dosage, as long as it's there for me at the end of each week. Thank you.

    Mein Gott, best ongoing cliffhanger EVAR!!

    noooo! don't kill Arkady!

    people can't die from crunching heads can they? and FA have heads of steel anyway, right? right? the funky brain stuff has to be protected somehow...

    evil laughter is unkind, sir. (obviously, otherwise I wouldn't have described it as evil)

    it is cold here. very, very cold. 11F not counting windchill. down quilts are beautiful things.
