    Hi Ariana and everyone who brings FA's into my laptop.

    This maybe, just may be the best single week episode of Freak Angels ever! That punched me in the gut then stomped on my head as I tried to breath. Just simply one of the best written and drawn titles anywhere; not just the net but anywhere. Good stuff.

    I had good news this week. Latest test and pictures came back free of anything new. My neck is in almost total atrophy from everything I have been through. However, I am alive and they give me drugs for the pain. Oh well. I do miss food but that's a small price to pay I suppose.

    WhiteChapel .... have a wonderful weekend.

    This issue caused me to have a thought about what Karl's doing up there, staring at the sky.

    Maybe he's just stoned.

    Wow. Just ... wow.

    As to the "is he dead?' thing? It's fucking comics. It don't matter. You've read comics before, right? Nobody stays dead, if they don't want to. Even if they do. Even if it makes no sense. (DC, I'm looking at you.)

    Jesus. Kids today, indeed.

    I'm in trouble but otherwise fine.

    Welllllll ..... that certainly lifted my bum of my seat! Yes, Luke was (is?) a total shite, but .... but he's still a Freakangel and there is something inside me that doesn't want any of them, the good the bad and the totally Nazi to die.

    And yeah, Alice absolutely rocks. Manchester Gals, what can ya say?

    I think it's far to early to count Kait out, Mark's been practicing a lot of mind control and probably other unsavory uses of their powers, but it's all been on normal people who are already broken not another Freakangel.

    I wonder with both Luke and Arkady in a "dead" state if they will see each other in that otherplace 'kady seems to go to when she comes near death.

    Headshot!

    Bye Luke. You won't be missed.

    Be cool if Mark keeps underestimating Kait, but there is 'Kady to throw a spanner in his plans if he is the "big Bad" he thinks he is.

    Apparently Lule's not just really dead, he's really most sincerely dead...

    That said, there were still twelve Freakangel figures in Arkady's vision from beyond. Just because he's dead now doesn't mean Luke can't "get better" later...

    Wonderfully shocking, unlike others I totally did not see that coming from Jack. Hardcore indeed. But as jam-packed with "oh, shit" moments as that episode was, the repercussions are amazing -- do Alice and Jack get banished for murder? What happens to the package when 12 are now 11? Can Mark (with or without Kait) stand up to a concerted effort from all the others (I say no way)? Lots more fun to be had -- fooking brilliant.

    Better than a cup of coffee to get the day rolling!

    Good ep.
    I'd say more but I didn't sleep well and my brain's leaking out of my ears and I ran out of mt.dew last night, so I think I'm mostly decaf now.

    I don't see how they get banished for murder. Luke was an armed fugitive who assaulted Kirk (even if he deliberately didn't kill him), shot down KK (and there's really no way to set a steam-copter crash on "stun") and shot at Jack. All this after committing mind-control rape. Some of the others (Sirkka, KK, Miki, Arkday, even Kait) may not like it, but it seems likely that they'll see the necessity of it.

    What's interesting to me is how might this change the relationships within the 'angels. Could Jack's execution of Luke cause a rift between him and Sirkka? For that matter, Jack and Alice have hunted and killed together, which could be the basis for a pretty intimate bond itself. I'm not trying to "soap opera" Freakangels, but the interpersonal relationships within the comic are a huge part of it. And death always brings change.

    Suck it Luke! Yeah I think your pretty definitively dead and good riddance. Bullets in the head, as every gamer and horror fans know, generally mean period mark. If he reanimates it won't be as the same old deuchbag. Their all psychics and he got shot in the head. And yeah your a bad ass Jack, but let's not forget that Whitechapel is pretty sheltered from the apocalypse. Alices' dialogue points this out, getting kicks out of his corpse, because she has probably seen horrors first hand that the angels have gotten to avoid. I hope Mark gets thrown down like a rude little novice but probably won't, I fear this may be the end for Kait. Doesn't matter though because Kirk has awesome god eyes and knows he's in town and is telling Conner. No espionage tricks for Mark.

    @curb and Noogies - Jack and Alice cold-blooded? Is this suprising? So far the FreakAngels have shown (other than Miki wanting to take in the refugees) just how little it phases them to kill cold-bloodedly. I remember Kait asking questions of the unarmed shmuck, then shooting him as soon as he wasn't useful. How about the gruesome way in which KK and Caz killed intruders... explody-bits seems a mite overly cruel. I'm not condemning them for defending Whitechapel;, but... you know... not suprised.

    Beautiful episode, thank you gents and ladies.

    I honestly don't think Jack threw up of his own accord. Seeing as it happened after Sirkka (and presumably the rest of the Angels) detected Luke dying, there was probably a reflexive psychic backlash from the nine of them (or eight, since Kait's been shielded) against Jack, which probably doesn't feel too good on the old gut. Thus, Alice's remark "Kids these days" is doubly funny because she wrongly assumes Jack is a pussy who can't kill without getting sick, when really he's just getting eight psychic kicks in the balls.

    So uhh, great episode!

    I don't know, I think being forced to shoot someone I grew up with and at least at one point considered a friend would probably make me throw up. Especially since the last time I shot and killed something was the last time I shot a gun (almost a decade ago, now), I can totally see where Jack's stomach is coming from.

    On the whole, this week is 100% awesome. I think there's a lot of Levelling Up going on. Karl's comments remind me of Arkady's "Wider." bit from the first flashback.

    ...

    Who picks a rapist as a favourite character*?

    I'm glad he's apparently dead.

    *(I am sincerely perplexed.)

    oh well, no chance for Luke to redeem himself now. Not that he really deserved one.
    Alice=baaaaaaadass
    Jack, not so much.
    fantastic ep, didn't expect Luke to go out like that, but I guess he was a mad dog.
    Won't he just take up spiritual residence in the FreakSpace (as seen by Arkady) though?
    I'm not hopeful about Kait's chances right now.

    Jesus. Kait should have just put two in Mark's chest on sight, rather than give him the opportunity to do this.

    why did the shot from Alice go right through Lukes shield? Was it that he was worn out and his power was weak or did alice just catch him off guard or is there more to alice than we know?
