    It's Friday, have summa FREAKANGELS.

    'Morning, ducks and chickens and assorted fowl of endearment. We're well into Weather Roulette Season out here on the water -- who knows if it'll be rainy, dry, hot, freezing, etc today. Right now it's a bit chilly, but that could change in FIVE MINUTES. How's everyone dealing with your own Novembers?

    Battening down the hatches cap'n. It's windy out there.

    Today, London is not looking anywhere near as pretty as in this week's episode. It's very nice to see what the 'ordinary' locals are getting up to.

    And it's a beautiful summa FREAKANGELS this morning!!! Hey, there. Jesus, will a bomb explode in the first panel/page of the next episode?! Per this episode, loving pages 3 and 4 to crushable, edible bits. Thanks, be good, and shine on you crazy diamonds.

    The colouring in this week's episode is just gorgeous.

    This here, this is the "calm before the storm" episode.

    I, too, like the coloring of this one. The water reflection is just amazing.

    Ah, the Holy Bible - rolling paper of choice around the world.

    It feels like a while since one of these really peaceful little episodes, and man is it pretty. I'm especially fond of the way that Arkady's expression flicks from looking slightly panicked to utterly composed in a single frame. And she looked a lot older, too. Great stuff.

    Ariana, be thankful you at least get 'hot' thrown into the weather mix - here in rainy England it's nothing but cold, wet and dark until sometime around April. That said, I just got out of bed here, as opposed to getting up at horrible o'clock to turn this thread on so, I'll just shut up now. Sorry. Thanks. Sorry. Thanks. Sorry. Bye.

    "I should just jump over the side before I start dying me hair,Like" classic.
    November has not been a lot of fun so far but I never like this time of year much,still find the english weather difficult after spending 17 years in Africa.

    It's like that bit in a war film when the lieutenant says "It's quiet, too quiet".

    I'm pretty impressed that Gandhi's willy forms an entirely unremarkable frame of visual reference.

    love the training (/upgrading) montage :D

    Bjork's cover of 'It's Oh So Quiet' was playing in my head when I was reading it...

    In a word... moving. Genuinely moving.

    Took him two weeks to get out, and when he did he came out looking like Gandhi's willy


    Freakangels never fails to deliver the best quotes on the interwebs.

    I love these too - the interludes and mundane stuff between the action bits. I guess it wouldn't be interesting if not for the action stuff though, eh? I hope you're not right about major destruction next week, but I guess it's possible.

    I thought the sky was a photograph! If it is a photograph, I love the way it integrates so well. And if it's not, well... whoa!

    Like everyone else is saying, Paul, page 3 especially was stunning.

    I had the same feeling as staticgirl. Page 1 is great, you see Arkady go through that moodswing. And I specificly like the difference between frame 2 and 3: silly boy - silly man. Page 2 is splendid: you would doubt your mind for less. Page 3 is a beauty, that sky is magnificent. Page 4 - 6: Bjork revisited.

    btw... I never got a view of Ghandi's willy... ;-)

    I just noticed one page 6 that the book being used as cigarette paper is the bible.

    Old Bible pages have long been the preferred rolling medium for people without cigarette papers.

    That sky, page 3. Wow. The clouds! Again...Wow! I'm with Staticgirl. Shh, shh. I envision craziness and loud, big band music to follow.
