    The best way to start these things is to get everyone saying hello. So please introduce yourselves in this thread, adding a photo if you've got one (trust me -- the web works much better when people see that there are real people on the other end of a post).

    Obviously, if you've said hello in previous Introduction threads, there's no need to do it again.

    We don't insist on real names here. I find it helps, but, frankly, if you want to be a completely fictional invention of yourself, go right ahead. Hell, I've even known people who have started out fictional and then become their own invention.

    Hello. I'm Warren.

    Me having a coffee looking thoughtful. I wasn't.
    I fell onto Whitechapel from Twitter, I find that happens quite a lot these days. I wonder how I found things on the web before?

    I take photos, I read and I am a computer guy. I enjoy the reading and photo parts of my life. The computer stuff is useful.

    I am jealous of those that can draw. I can doodle. *sigh*

    I was a student of many things over the years. I have done Film Studies, Photography, Software Engineering, Philosophy, Shakespeare.
    I mention these not to brag but these are the things that interested me at one time or another. Well apart from the Software Engineering.

    I stopped all the endless studying when I got married and rescued some cats.
    I am Malky, I have two cats and I live in Scotland.

    me. dinzo.
    I'm Dean, or Dinzo. I'm really hairy. I also design. Actually, I love design. It’s my jumbo sized honey pot. It’s my roller-coaster of love. In my spare time I draw Comics, and I stalk Warren on twitter, though he has yet to pay attention to my threatening tweets and angry ninja rants about his deliciously hairy legs. You could all view one such rant, here . I ride around either Ohio or California on a bike with no brakes and gold plated handlebars. Unlike Malky, above, I mention these things to brag.

    I'm Pix. I make comics when I can be arsed and/or afford it. I write a bit, but mostly draw, which is why I haven't migrated to a medium anyone gives a damn about.

    You may have seen my Burke & Hare graphic novel, or at least news reports about the collapse of the publisher thereof. I also draw a strip about a dope-smoking alien for WASTED magazine (which in Glasgow counts as whoring myself to the mainstream. No, really). Other projects are bubbling away in the background, waiting for me to give them more attention than I could muster in 2010.

    I know a little about a great many things and enough about very few. This is me:

    Hi, I'm Anthony. I'm an illustrator & web designer, and currently do the latter for Rogers, the media conglomerate here in Canada.

    I just had a book come out in both english and Inuktitut, the language of the Inuit people. It's called "Tales of the Tundra". I only illustrated it.

    Also, did the cover for a kids magazine called ChickaDee this month. Busy month!

    When I'm not working, I make papercrafts. You can see them at http://anthonybrennan.net/papercraft.html

    My name is Joe and I am currently attending college in the hopes of becoming a librarian. I am a huge sci-fi/comic nerd and a believer in transhumanism. When I was 15 I was diagnosed with aspergers syndrome which would actually explain my social life (or lack there of) quite well.

    I have been a big fan of yours for a while (Transmetropolitan was pure genius!) and enjoy your caustic remarks on politics because I often feel gyped by the world. Its not that I wish we had dragons and zombie invasions and the liek (although it would be nice) but rather that we could have done so much more. We are boged down in mediocrity and you are able to voice my own frustrasions much more eliquently than I.

    That's why I want to be a librarian: to get kids reading and show them just how much is really out there if only they look for it!

    (also, I'm not including a picture of myself as I am still struggling to catch up to all of the tech, which is addmitedly an ironic statment coming from someone who wished that he could download his mind into an imortal robot body and travel the stars at will).

    I'm Howard Hardiman, I make comics, try to avoid getting myself into too much trouble these days, but it still seems to find me no matter where I hide. I live in London, like music by recovering smackheads, think punk guys are hot and checklists of what you are like as a person always sound very weird. Hello.

    Hi,
    i just have to say i'm addicted...again...happened the same when i got my first book of transmetropolitan...had to buy them all (was broke for some time:P) and read them insanely...happened just the same with freakangels..This time i gotta really thank it's free:))..THANKS!!!
    I really like the feel and looks of this comic and will find it difficult to have to wait an entire week to get more.
    I live in Madrid, studied law but hate most of what lawyers do (exept the arguing bit..)...so i spend my time painting (big murals:) and taking photos.
    Currently hearing Pata negra when happy, Autonervous and Subtonix when angry :P.

    Hi, I just spent the (whole) night catching up with the story, and I gotta say you guys are fucking awesome! (I don't usually swear, well, at least in public, but I guess you deserve some honest compliment with no internal or external censorship. :) Really, this is fantastic. As soon as I have some money, which might take a while, I'm vowing to buy the print stuff for myself and some lucky friends. Besides some cool stuff you got there. Way to go!

    You've got a new avid reader now, and possibly a few more since I'm starting to babble about FreakAngels asap. :D

    Oh, by the way, I'm Mari Juniper and I'm fictional and real at the same time. ;)

    Hi I'm Valdo, I've been following the freakangels comic and got myself into the whitechapel forums by accepting Warren's challenge of a Kubrick Iron Man.
    (Thanks for announcing it at your website Warren, I would have missed it otherwise)
    I do photography and photoshop retouching for a living, a bit of matte painting as an hobby, and obviously I'm a fan of Mr Ellis. Nice to meet you all!

    I only started reading this thing a couple days ago. It saddened me when I finally reached the last page :(
    It kept me entertained for a while and now I have to wait with my boredom once again *sigh*
    I'm jess ^^
    I had a maths exam this morning.

    My name's Colby Newton, and I'm a sophomore at the University of Georgia. Been lurking around for the past six months, decided it was time to register. Loving Freakangels and a big fan of what I've read from Warren, and I really like the community you've all built here. Not much of an artist or anything, but I'll try to contribute as best I can.

    My names Scott, and i live in Southend literally round the corner form Mr Ellis, though I have resisted all urges to stalk quite well!! I've been an avid reader of comics most my life, and follower of 2000AD in particular which is where I must have first come across his work, either in an interview or a strip. Being a fan of Steampunk is what made me first come across FreakAngels, and I have thoroughly enjoyed it since. Right I'm out of words now so I'll leave it at that.

    Hello, my name is Stephen Baxendale. I'm a writer from Liverpool. I'm a big fan of Warren Ellis, I've downloaded all his comics. (i'mjokingpleasedon'thitme)
    I love to read new exciting stuff, so if any of you are writers out there, let me know about your blog (or whatever it is you kids write on these days), I would love to check it out.
    I have a couple of articles over at http://stephenbaxendale.blogspot.com/

    I'm a 46 year old Yank, divorced twice. My father was a comedian, had a TV show in the late 60's with his brother peole seemed to like called The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour. Been a musician most of my life, singer mostly. Made a living at it here and there but never with my own stuff, though I did manage to get a few label showcases. I was a porn actor for three years, got a bit of attention because of my family's name, gave it up after it started feeling too much like work. I've been an exterminator since then, the work's steady, it pays well and people leave me alone. I live in Canada now, married a girl here who proceded to transform into a deranged harpy soon after I arrived, but I chose to stay. You couldn't pay me to move back to the States. Been reading comics since I was about 8 and Ellis is not only one of the best who's ever been, but one of my favorites. There you go, more than you could ever possibly wish to know about someone you will likely never meet. (How the fuck do you attach a fucking photo?)This is me, year or so ago.

    I am a 23 yr old Californian, aspiring writer of all forms. Still waiting for my break, yet to be published, and hoping to meet some cool people perhaps to work with or collaborate. I enjoy music and books more than anything, although video games have always been a pass time. Although I am American all my favorite writers are British, Ellis being number one. I want more Spider Jerusalem tales!
