    I have no trouble building things in my mind, it's the getting them out into reality that's the problem.

    Another excellent episode, i find Mr Duffield's artwork deeply impressive.

    My thanks to everyone involved in bringing us this marvellous entertainment and my best wishes to Mr Ellis for a speedy recovery from his allergy grief.

    I seem to be the only one in my office who hasn't gotten sick.

    It's the Vitamins, you see...

    Top panel, page 6: is Karl levitating?

    Yes. Karl does appear to be levitating. Now I want to see him make plants grow from seed to mature in moments! And gain Super Sekrit Wine Making Abilities. THAT would be an awesome upgrade!

    Heh. Right on. Lovely work, Paul, so much movement as the lumber and nails fly about!

    I do wonder how, post the end of the world, one gets lumber and nails. Even this many years after the cataclysm I'd figure any remaining home improvement stores would have been long emptied. Turning trees into lumber isn't entirely straightforward, especially if one doesn't have things like lathes and planers and such. To say nothing of creating screws. Even if they were removed from older material, that would render a lot of screws useless. That's not to say Caz doesn't have a smelting factory around somewhere, only that I started wondering where she put it.

    One week into '11 and I'm ever as panicked about my choices for my life's direction, I'm more determined to push ahead and I'm also throwing myself ever more stupidbullshit to undermine myself. E.g. I spent most of the day in bed today feeling ill when a lot of the crappy feeling came from being reckless last night, drinking, eating terrible food and staying up till dawn. So... more of the same? Well, as long as it's not being numb to the passing of time, that's already a step up for me.

    Shelter seems to outnumber alive people in Freakangels England, conceivably there has not been a lot of building.

    Why are the angels so obsessed with finding booze all the time? With the upgrades and all coudn't they just make themselves drunk by thinking about it?

    Why is anyone so obsessed with booze? Good company and relaxation can do as much as drinking beer all night and leave you without the hangover. It's cultural and behavioural, not logical.

    "It's cultural and behavioural, not logical. "
    And since people and the way they think/feel is in general unlogical... Pass on the bottle, cheers!!

    You know it's interesting, this book opened up a lot more questions than it answered, and there are still plenty of unresolved issues, and yet -- it's a satisfying chunk of story. That is, of course, provided we get to have more. Oh Warren, you evil genius, you.

    For me this year started off with a quiet celebration at home with family, then putting my elder son on an Amtrak train to go visit his mum (we are boycotting the airlines until TSA learns to behave itself), and then launching my new web-comic (which I won't plug here because I've had ample opportunity to mention it elsewhere in this forum). So I guess the mood here is quiet hopefulness, that this year things will finally turn around for me money-wise and career-wise. In the mean time, I still keep a bottle of either Scotch or Irish whiskey on my desk in case of emergencies.

    That's amazing. I can do exactly the same thing except backwards. Stuff just falls apart when I get close to it.

    @ TheEndsOfInvention: are you the opposite of a freak angel: a freak devil maybe? ;-)

    Thought this was a cool installment, where not a lot of plot stuff happens but we see the characters react to their upgrade in a variety of different ways. Cool stuff as always and Mr. Duffield is fucking ace on this.
    • CommentTimeJan 8th 2011
    Beautiful installment. Not much to add, really. Just wanted to toss a handful of confetti and wish everyone a Happy New Year.

    Now has anybody seen the carpet sweeper?

    @Paul Duffeild

    Actually an evening out where you can sit around and make eachother drunk just by thinking about it sounds very relaxing.

    I love this quote:

    KK: You know, with the shit day we've had, and the shit days probably to come, I almost feel bad about being so happy. But that can't be right, can it?


    Great closing panel, too. Freakangels rule! ><

    Oh, the possibilities.

    If you can throw up the frame for a building in a matter of seconds...imagine what happens when you decide to build a new world.

    And the consequences therein.

    Rule comma Freakangels.
