    My week? Compared to some... er... it's been... it's been GOOD!!

    OK then, do we get to hear what the bits that Luke left behind are thinking?
    • CommentTimeMay 28th 2010
    Bloody (literally) awesome. Loveloveloved it completely. Writing, art, framing, everything. Just perfect. I'm looking forward to Expo tomorrow and meeting Warren and Paul again and shaking them both firmly by the hands. Fantastic stuff indeed. Anyone, feel free to say hi to an early 30s red head in a red & black kimono, if you see me there.

    Week? Bit crappy but it'll do, tried to enjoy the good bits & ignore the bad bits. Have lost 5 lb in time for going on holiday on Sunday so that's quite nice, especially as we're going to River Cottage for hubby's birthday and I *will* be appearing in photographs, whether I want to or not. Not packed yet, and Expo tomorrow. Heh. *panics and runs away*

    Possibly the most talkative dead dude ever...

    whee! That was fun!

    Never been lectured by a man with a hole through his head before. Dumbfounded staring seems the appropriate reaction for the watching 'Angels. Giggling on the part of the audience, of course.

    Wonderful monologue! And Paul does gore and random blood so beautifully!

    Warren: one of the most hilarious things I've ever read.

    One of the scariest things I've ever read.

    Paul and the team: one of the most disgusting things I've ever seen.

    One of the most beautiful things I've ever seen.

    To Luke: Preach it son! Miki just thinks about herself all the damn time. That engineer and farmer don't do anything useful at all. That girl dug you for sure, for being SEXY. And you are a tough man, the way you jab your finger forward all dainty like that. Sticking your thumb in Kirk's wound was WAY heroic. Can't wait to see you get revenge on Jack and Alice yeah they'll roll over easy...

    OK, I'm gonna be the downer who has something to say other than massive praise for the art and the story and all that. Not because there's anything wrong with that, but because I have crazed theories!

    1: Holy fuck, did you see that exit wound? What the fuck kind of gun does Jack have?! Especially with Luke's head lying on the pavement at the time.
    Theory: Jack wasn't fucking done with shooting Luke, so when he went off into the alley to dispose of the meat, he squished the barrel into the hole and fired another round.

    2: That's a lot of missing brainstuff. Even if we accept that Luke's alive, why isn't he spending all his time drooling in that alley?
    Theory: Freakangel consciousness is not stored in the brain. Maybe it's locked in this 'package' we keep hearing about.

    One of the best, funniest, grossest monologues I've ever come across. 'Scally twatcoffin'! brilliant! I cannot wait until I get to use that in causal conversation ... (pref with a scouser). And poking a finger into your own brain-hole - ewwww! Its been said before, but if this comic doesn't prizes, awards, accolades a-plenty, there truly is no justice in this universe.

    I wanna see the faces of the other Freakangels when they see Zombie Luke very talkative.

    Arkady will faint out.

    Great, great episode. Unexpected. Are Freakangels immortal?

    Can- can someone pass me a cigarette? I think I just made a happy in my pants.

    This is some quality shit, both on Warren and Paul's parts. Dialogue and layout, terrific. Any and all mentions of this being the best episode yet, total agreement here.
    • CommentTimeMay 28th 2010
    the art was amazing - the whole peering through the brain in the beginning was great - and the gestures that Luke is making as he's going on his rant were spot on perfect of what a pompous, aggrieved living dead person would do (I think). Him putting his finger in his skull - brilliant.

    and the rant.... oh my god the writing was the funniest damned thing I've read in weeks - possibly months and years. Vintage Ellis written rant complete with the ending.

    this types of stream of conscious ranting, raving, lunacy but with a purpose is one of the reasons I'll pretty much give anything that Warren writes, especially his creator owned stuff, a try.

    I hate sounding like a fanboy but that was excellent.

    Magnificent. Insanely great. Warren and Paul, you have both outdone yourselves. Fucking A.
    • CommentTimeMay 28th 2010
    All lauds deserved. Oh yes.

    Also, Paul - best eyebrows ever. Seriously. Never have I seen more expressive, elegant, crazy eyebrows. Nothing can sell or ruin a rant faster than eyebrows.

    News article came out this week, made me think of the Freakangels: Swarming Swells Locusts' Brains.

    Swarming locusts not only look different and act differently to solitary locusts, they also have much larger brains.

    This is a survival mechanism. It occurs when the insects run out of food and are forced together onto any remaining patches of vegetation.

    They discovered that the brains of gregarious locusts were 30% larger.

    "You find that brain regions specifically to do with things like learning and memory are massively enlarged in the gregarious ones," explained Dr Ott.

    Inside the swarm, they're swamped with information.

    "The higher bits of the brain that deal with complexity allow them to make sense of the mayhem going on around them."

    When this sudden behavioural change happens, the locusts also (much more gradually) change in colour and even body shape.

    "People used to think that the two phases were actually two different species," said Dr Ott.

    I always enjoy FA, both the writing and the art are great, but I have to say that today's outing was exceptionally awesome.

    So, yeah, what everybody else said.
    • CommentTimeMay 28th 2010
    Really enjoyed this one.

    Sweet merciful fuck he stuck his finger in his brain. *shudder*

    At least getting shot in the gray matter made him funnier.
