    For 114 Episodes now...I came for the writing, and I stayed for the art.

    Masterful.

    How's my november?

    Well today it's -5C. Iceicles on your nether regions weather. This weekend it's going to drop to about -8C. fun Times ahead!

    Of course it's not winter time in Whitechapel. Seems like a lovely summers evening there.

    As well as the lovely sunset panels, i rather liked the panels showing that it's not all doom, and gloom. People are getting about their business, living, working, creating.

    Of course it won't stay that way for long.....

    Page 3, holy fuck. That made my day, so beautiful, thank you Paul. Also, page 6 totally made me laugh, as I've used that brand of rolling paper in my more desperate moments. I tried mostly to use the bottom of a page that was blank so I'd only be doomed to a lesser level of hell. That's what I told myself to feel less guilty anyway. The best part of Freakangels for me these days is I figured out how to make my monitor go sideways (a major breakthrough for a techtard like me) so I can view each page full screen all at once, it's way more mind blowing that way. Go me!

    I rode my bike to work today in 35 degree weather and couldn't feel my fingers after 15 minutes. Yeah I know, boo fucking hoo, poor me for living in a state where it hardly ever rains. Wretched me and my California problems. Wouldn't have it any other way though.

    One might reflect that the Angels are changing the world for the better from an episode like this. The breadmakers, by the way? Fucking awesome...

    So is the animal being skinned on pg five a rabbit or a dog? I vote for rabbit cause they're cute and cuddly and we all know cute is one of the four food groups, very healthy.

    We've got fog so thick here in Oregon I feel like I'm in a time bubble myself. Everything's all gray and silent and still. Half expect it to burn off round lunch time and find that it's the 31st century and I've been stuck in fairy land for a thousand years.

    "Gandhi's Willy"

    That conjures up odd thoughts. And embarrassing memories of typos ...

    November is fine. Yesterday, got some warm food to the vets in the halfway house around the corner, gave the legless 'Nam vet Governor Reagan made homeless a $20 with his bagel. Took the tot to Disneyland ... thanked Vets for their service.

    Today wife is sleeping off her cold ...

    @bobsyuncle: I'm betting dog. One, from the appearance, and two, because c'mon, who's writing this thing?

    Paul, you made me have to flip a coin between the third and sixth page as to which should be my new desktop. I decided to cycle them by the hour. Gorgeous, amazing work. You and your assistants are in top, top form.

    Silent storytelling never ceases to leave me breathless. (when it's good)

    November = uphill climb with scenic outlooks. Has no more job, sending out stuff for the visa today (w/ 5 weeks before I travel (b/c I am that lazy & untrusting that this will all happen (really, not until we're in Delhi will I actually believe what's going on))), vaccinations all lined up, and still am exactly the shade of mopey 15 year old with greasy face and everything.

    Also, I am still in my nightgown, so, there's that. The weather is finally appropriately wet and gray and cold and windy and disgusting and I love it. All this warm summer stuff is so two months ago.

    My best to all.

    @Warrenellis- Oh good, I thought it was a cat, and me having a herd of cats of my own, I was a little apprehensive of that image.

    Mr. Paul Duffield's Page 3 spread was legendary, just gorgeous in every meaning of the word. We've been having this kind of erratic weather over here in the states; billowing storms giving way to lovely cloud breaks. Duffield still kicks nature's ass when it comes to beauty though, lol!

    This episode reminds me of waay back in book 1 when a few people here complained that the comic book wasn't showing enough of the other people of Whitechapel. And Ariana said something like, 'it's called FreakAngels, not Every Other Boring Survivor in Whitechapel'... or something.

    My favourite panel is with the seagull. I love the water.

    As everyone's been saying, a really very pretty episode... Loved the full-page sunset/rise view of the city, and something about that single panel with the seagull perched on the half-submerged sign was really grabbing. Also, the dough kneading - fun to see people making bread in a comic...

    Soooo pretty. So so pretty.

    The weather here is psychotic. ONe day I need the air conditioning on and the next the heater is required.

    I haven't slept because my brain has decided its deadline weekend a week early and is running over time. Blahhhhhhhhhh -_-; Hope everyone else is having a much better start to their weekend.

    @twist: my weekend will be ok I guess.... one of the rare free weekends I have. So no worry, I will enjoy it. ;-)

    (though I will be impatient for next friday: next FA-day!!!)

    And of course it was a rabbit, just look at the shape of the paws, that can only be a rabbit.
    btw: I really love the artwork in these pages: top quality graphics, that's for sure.

    Oh my God, that sky. I just want to wrap myself in it! Really liked the slice of life panels (aw who am I kidding, I really liked *each* panel) but it was cool to see the norms carrying on. Bread making, huh? Someone preserved yeast cultures through the end of the world? well, why not, I guess. Mmhh bunny... my mind keeps wandering into the tasty fooding one could do with what is shown on these panels but then I recall they probably don't have any herbs or spices. But then I remember this is England where asking for ketchup with my potatoes caused no end of confusion. (Then again, London = land of curry.)

    Anyhow, lovely. Calm. Yes. Like a prelude.


    Life here has been ok, quiet. Financial disaster is only a tempest in the mind. Aside from that, the world is surprisingly pleasant and good. food still tastes good, hugs are warm and the weather is... uh... moody. Calm and warm today. Brutally windy yesterday. Chilly the day before that. And yet still I have a teeny tiny wish that it could snow here. Not for it to stick, mind. That's some miserable shit. Just the snow fall and then back to temperate Southern Cal where the weather couldn't possibly kill you, merely inconvenience a little.

    Jesus, Paul - is that pretty sky a photo, or did you paint it yourself?

    Wait, doesn't the ink in the Bible paper give one a massive headache, making it suitable only in cases of last resort? Someone told me that once.

    After living under a rock for a while I finally found out about FA and burned through all 114 episodes in the last two days. Now I am already suffering from withdrawals at the thought of not getting another dose until next Friday. This webcomic is REALLY good and I'm glad that I came in to the FA fold right when the story takes a natural break after blowing my mind a few times. A cliffhanger ending to 114 would have me freaking out.

    At least tomorrow I'll have time to leave my house and enjoy some of the perfect fall weather here in Oakland. And what's up Mickie Rat, our paths are doomed to keep crossing.

    p.s. Wondershot, it's not anywhere near a massive headache and cannabis does wonders for any pains you might incur.

    Pages three through six reminded me of Bruegel the Elder paintings. Simple people doing everyday things like a woman cooking over an open fire, bakers kneading bread, skinning rabbits and roasting fish, children in wonderment, and the odd sinner in a corner.

    I am also very intrigued by the big reveal of this chapter: the FAs didn't just blitz the world back to the dark ages, they also messed up time itself. That is some major weirding.
