    Well, the world ended because they decided to kill the Freakangels, and they reacted.
    Did they learned the lesson or they only took the time to come in with a better idea to definitely kill the Freakangels? Maybe this is what they were doing silently on the other side of the globe.
    But this doesn't seems like American Army. Just because American Army doesn't come with a single chopper, they come in packs, or as usual, massively huge packs. In the case of Freakangels, I'd expect a nuclear warhead from them, afraid as they are. Maybe some small independent group just obtained an American chopper?
    Hmmmmmmm... Curiosity is increasing. Damn you, Warren. I know you like so much to do it.
    Waiting for next friday, can't do nothing else.

    Is it synchronicity that "I'm Afraid Of Americans" was the last song I heard?

    Funny. I was hearing "AAAAMEEEERICAAAAAAAAA! FUCK YEA!!!!"

    There goes the neighborhood.

    And I would also like to thank Paul for the beautiful Sirka panels. Boobies....

    Sirka is now my fave freakangel ;),the recent developments have changed my opinion of Connor considerably.
    Just finished work,have had a tough week working in a service for people with learning disabilties in which resources/staff numbers are inadequate. Also been coping with supporting my partner who is recovering from major surgery.
    Having said that I am feeling surprisingly positive.

    Maybe it's just the time-bending bollocks? Perhaps there was a big flash, the US sent their nearest helicopter over to see what it was, and it's just taken several years to get there (in London time). OTOH, that's starting to sound a bit Lost-ish, though the idea that the big new threat is the revelation that the rest of the world is fine and still wants them dead, entertains me.

    Here I was all ready for a skip week and just flitting over to whitechapel to see about the NYCC goings-on when what am I greeted by but:

    -The goddamn cavalry
    -Sirkka

    Now feeling super-energetic! Good thing, since this day is going to be hell.

    Also, last night someone poured Fixer into the Developer tank and really screwed up one of my experiments. I was angry about it before I read the comic, but I can't remember why.

    Who's taking bets that the Americans are a force for good here? ;)

    Who's taking bets they're even Americans?

    More naked Sirkka, please.

    Thank the gods this week's over. I'm skint, painfully so. It's Canadian Thanksgiving this weekend so I'm giving thanks for a day off, a nice meal at my folk's place, seeing my uncle (which is always a treat - last year, when asked if he wanted a slice of pumpkin pie, he responded "If I wanted to eat soap, I'd do it at home.")

    It takes considerable training to start a copter of that size much less fly one. But those hillbillies way back in The Walking Dead got that tank going. Also, said copter could be based off of an aircraft carrier. You know a floating fortress. Maybe that is what Mark saw.

    Either way, I am ready to make it to the next episode.
  5.  (9024.48)
    My personal guess for the significance of the helicopter is that (1) yes, the world has gone all post-apocalyptic everywhere, not just London and (2) someone in the aftermath decided they wanted to be a conquering warlord. We're talking some serious renegade shenanigans.

    Shenanigades?

    Anyway... I think it's time to worry, and I think this is going to make the little Mudlark incursion look absolutely juvenile.

    Hehehe. Maybe it is a rescue mission. Aren't Mark and Luke complete wankers? Haven't they been totally wrong about everything?

    Wow. Did not see it being the Americans. As good as anything, I suppose. I think I was figuring more not a mere roving band of highwaymen trying to beset Londontown but a horde of survivors mounting an invasion of the most viable settlement. I kind of figure that even if Mark can take over a couple dozen drones he would have trouble with hundreds, particularly if they...perhaps... knew his face. Anyway. So it's Americans. Maybe. It seems like. Someone did mention that helicopters travel in packs and while that has a ring of truth, it's not 100% so, particularly when it's a trip from point A. to point B. over cold/dead zones, if I understood my brother correctly. But the Marines may have different ideas of protocol than Army guys. *shrug* Maybe it's just one reconn bird and the rest of the flock is spread out around the surrounding region.

    Now I have David Bowie haunting me. Johnny's an American. I'm not sure what scares Mark so bad about it. Though they all hated helicopters very much. And it doesn't take intensive understanding of American history to appreciate that, like roaches, when you see one of us you will soon find dozens and then hundreds more. And it takes us a lot longer to learn the lessons of our European brethren. Assuming we learn them at all.

    Dear Connor, I loved you from your first panel. I hearted you good in the flashbacks. I adored you when you felt you had to leave and then when you whipped around and gave Whitechapel your complete focus I thought you were dead sexy. Now, giving everyone the measure of what they're in for in the way only a scribe can? (Not to mention keeping eyes on Sirkka above the Maginot Line... };>) *lick*

    finally, ah fanservice.

    Running late for my plans today. Thanks a bunch Warren, Paul. Really... thanks. }:>

    I'm gearing up for an awesomely fun show tonight in San Francisco and being glad I've fought off the sickness everyone else is getting around here these days.

    I too expected a skip week, but was pleasantly surprised. That last panel leaves SO MUCH to be considered, another cliffhanger well done lads. I really hope it involves news of beyond England, it has been killing me not knowing what's up with the rest of the globe. I always imagined it was kind of like a giant crater of Freakangel-damage on one side of the planet and maybe some of the rest of it was still okay? Maybe the rest of the world has been dealing with the outer edges thus far and has only now begun to venture into ground zero.

    I guess we'll find out, here's hoping for not-a-skip-week next friday.

    What's wrong with America? And they might be friends. But maybe they're Russians
    Hey, maybe is OBAMA IV
    I hope Mark gets killed FOR GOOD.

    I can't wait to see where this is going, as it appears that shit is about to happen.

    Many thanks to all who make my Friday mornings something to look forward to.
    Have a good weekend.

    Has everyone who was slagging off Connor a few weeks back apologised yet?

    He is a bad-ass - I personally could not have kept it together next to a naked Sirkka.

    I keep imagining soldiers with Tesla armor and Plasma rifles jumping out of the helicopters when they land.

    The Enclave have finally reached London!

    There are very few things in life that I know I will want to do over. Just for the pleasure of it. Reading this next week and then the week after and first in about ten minutes is one of those things.

    Lovely accomplishment, all.

    I go to do more learning of graduate schools and then some dishes. And then to start to get the visa for the travels. All in all, surviving.

    Enjoy NYCC! And come home healthy, please!
