    Bit confused by this one. Arkady knows Mark is alive in the building but not that Luke is dead? And Karl (was it Karl?) knows that Luke is dead and is there when Arkady say's he's not.

    So something is going on here...or I'm just missing something, which is probably more likely!

    I wonder if Mark being inside the building when it was rebuilt is going to be relevant? Or icky.

    Re-building stuff: interested to see where that goes! Could come in very, very handy.

    My week... well, it was pretty much like everyone else's from the sound of it. Won't bore you. Did manage to finish a play script I've been stuck on since Sept tho, so that's good.

    Wow! I can hear the groaning of the building as its forced back into shape. I'm a bit confused by the Mark/Luke thing too.

    24 hours ago, two hours into a 15-hour drive from Avignon to Amsterdam, I learned very suddenly that a sandwich from a gas station can be really bad for you. Today I'm catching up on a week's worth of work, even with the holidays.

    But the sun is shining outside at last!

    last week: end on explosion

    this week: end on laughter

    nice! as was my week, mostly. still basking in the warm glow of a newly regenerated Time Lord, which makes the mundane more magical and adventurous.

    My week has been decidedly weird. Got the news that I'm being laid off at the end of the month and finding a decided lack of panic. I think this is a good thing.

    Either that or the Secret Masters have finally completed that emotion-excising procedure.

    @RedThing I found myself in the exact same position last month, and felt much the same as yourself. For me it feels like the kick in the bollocks that I need to get my life in order, a new beginning is often a good thing. Good to hear your taking it positively.

    I hadn't put much thought into how powerful they were truly becoming, be interesting to see where it goes from here. The more powerful they are, the more powerful the opposing force has to be to compensate.

    Been impressed by the FreakAngels' powers so far, but rebuilding a destroyed house in seconds?

    That isn't just molecular control, that's reversal of entropy! That is God-level power. Jesus Fuck!

    As for my week, my life has fallen to pieces like the FreakHouse, and now I have to build up another one. Looks for purple contact lenses

    Read FA this morning before packing for my trip to be with mister86 this weekend. Suspect I'm going insane with pointless pre-trip jitters that will calm down once I'm on the plane.
    Hope you all have a nice weekend.

    'Kady makes me happy at the end this week, but Mark is still in there. And alive. Next week will be pretty good, methinks. Particularly fancy job on the rebuilding art this week, Paul and crew.

    Personally the week has been pretty good. I got my C2E2 pass at the end of last week, and the wife's came early this week (I got mine from the super Avatar package of awesome, whereas she only got a Saturday pass), so now we're moving on to planning the trip as a whole. Considering it's a micro part of a macro vacation (we're driving to Chicago, then leaving there on the train back to Fargo to visit friends and family), it's the second-largest expense of the whole week and a half we'll be gone--after the train tickets--and we have to budget accordingly. I also have to figure out how I'm going to bother all the people I plan on bothering while I'm there, as I'll only be there for Friday and the morning on Saturday.

    Weather-wise, the week has been pretty shit. It started out in the low 80s (F) and got down to the upper 30s last night while we were at the home opener for the local minor league baseball team. Oh, and it's been raining off and on all week. Since it's in off mode, probably gonna have to mow the lawn for the first time in... five years? Six? Not looking forward to that.

    By being exceptionally lazy and only making myself move for things that involve drinking, this week has boiled down to being all about alcohol. Heh. Other wise it's been quiet and boring and the same old same old (but plus my brother who has gotten his first full week as a civilian in some five odd years and plus my mom who is on Spring Break).

    Fantastic episode! Skipped a couple back so I could barrel into this one with the boom that should kick off the episode and yeah, I love freakangels. Hell yes. }:>

    Great episode! Very light and a great mood. I'll be happy when today is over, too (damn the whole 6 pages = 6 seconds thing).

    But relatedly:

    @Paul: great art as always. Yesterday, my boyfriend was flipping through the first book (literally flipping), and he was watching the sky turn from day to dusk. That's continuity. And also totally rad :)

    @government spy
    I've always wanted to find a sandwich in a gas station vendy that could give me super-worms.

    So I have been a very infrequent poster on this forum, but always always read Freak Angels with intense admiration for both the story and the art.... and I can't wait to introduce this masterpiece to a bunch of people in an EXCO class I hope to teach next year. I missed the time line for getting it into fall semester, but I'll deal with it. This is just too good not to pass along out there. I have a question in general for as many as care to answer--How often do you just check in here with each other when you know the strip hasn't been updated for a while and won't be? Any of you have contact elsewhere? My principle for asking is that on a different strip published at gocomics.com/ there are a huge number of people who track the strip and then hang out to socialize on the off times just because, and to me that's as valid as Facebook or My Space as a social media site because of it. Do you think that could/would happen here?

    Forums are what people used before myspace/facebook/twitter. I've only been here a few days so I can't comment but this has always been the way of things with forums, if a strong enough community is gathered.

    Your parameter's a little false. This thread gets launched every Friday, because since inception we've either had an episode or a written interlude piece of some kind every Friday. Something happens in this space every Friday, rain or shine.

    I'm kinda glad Mark's still alive. He's an evil bastard, but I really want to see what he can do. I hope the next strip shows him unleashing hell on them while they celebrate fixing the house :). On another note, rebuilding a house in seconds? awesome. Molecular control isn't quite as impressive as ending the world, but it shows an amazing amount of precision control to be able to do it. Can't wait to see what they come up with next to do. Rebuilding the entire world perhaps?

    1. I predicted that she would say that;)
    2. I love this strip more than I love easily 99.9973% of humans.
    3. When I saw that they were going to rebuild I thought that they would just let things go to where they wanted to be, as if the bricks and wood molecules and mortar between the bricks et.al. still remembered their past (and current in nearby alternate universes) place and it was the path of least resistance to just let them go back home. Brains, even cojoined FA brains can't process quickly enough to manipulate zillions of molecules in real time. Not enough processing power, and they wouldn't have the intimate knowledge of where everything had been before.
    4. I want to flip and see the daylight change, but all my stuff is in storage right now:(
    5. Thanks to all the people that make me so happy by coloring and inking and planning and writing, et.al.
