    Every page is more amazing than the last! :o This is going to be one hell of a finale. :P

    As for how I'm doing, I'm good. Been getting stuff together for a convention next weekend and slowly working on some art commissions. :D How's you?

    That's a great episode.

    So, FreakAngels decided to grow up and actually DO something, then? If they can fix it now, they could fix it before. I think the question many have to them is: "why vou took so long to fix it?". Of course, by "them" I'm referring to the readers, because in the story no one knows who's responsible for flooding London, except FreakAngels. And, of course, Alice's starting to catch something.

    And I wonder: this amount of water can do some pressure, penetrate on cracks in the concrete, and the iron inside many concrete structures may have become rusted. When iron rusts, it expands and break the concrete. When the water level dropped, I think some buildings should have collapsed too. I've saw a documentary once, called "Life After People", from History Channel, that explained that. I don't know if it applies to the story, but almost all London's foundations may have become compromised by all this time under water, and now unusable.

    Waiting for next Friday, let's see how it turns out...

    Ach if we had to wait at least it was certainly worth it. Amazing. And you know, while I let my eyes linger on the sumptuous images of sky and land and water, where I really take my time is over the 'Angels themselves. I may sound like a broken record in my *hearting* of Connor and Miki but I really love going back again and again over what they're saying and how they're saying it.

    For me this has always been a coming of age story as ridiculously powerful people learn the consequences and strengths of responsibility.

    Being a homebody today. Very, very late spring cleaning, allergies redlining. Should probably dope myself with antihistamines, but they always make it tough to focus. Ah well. First world problems, you know?

    @Zerodrop - to blantanly swipe a phrase - TIME MOAT.

    Even though everyhting is turning out as it should do in this episode, there's something so very sad about seeing Jack's little boat get grounded.

    Me? First week in far too long I haven't wanted to gouge my own eyes out from all the work bullshit. So, that's something.

    I can't help feeling kind of sad. Am I wrong to think that this wonderful comic is coming to an end? :(

    Spotted some Warren Ellis books in one of our local shops. I'm hoping FA volumes will follow soon enough. I don't have a credit card and can't order these things online.

    Zerodrop: if the FA's undo what hey did the same way they reversed that shot from Alice's gun before, I am pretty sure they undo it completely, including the damage you mention. If they can warp up a time-moat, they can also reverse the effect of time and elements on structures and materials. BTW: I feel kind of funny when I see that people try to react scientifically on a fantasized "what if" scenario. ;-)

    But will the doors be hung the right way around?

    Apocalyptic and breezy... what a combination.
  2.  (9918.10)
    Absolutely lovely.

    @MrMonk - I suddenly have a vision of the UK restored to normal, the dead resurrected, the buildings repaired and people's memories wiped clean - and the headline in all the papers the following day reading ARCHITECTURAL ANOMALIES PUZZLE NATION - Plague of mis-hung doors unhinge scientists

    ...and a mysterious crop of flowers left on everyone's pillowcases!

    I've just read all the episodes to date, in about 4 hours. I truly thought it was finished before I started. I'm not sure if I'm ecstatic that there's more, or frantic because I have to wait to have it. Absolutely the best time I've had in a long time.

    Thank you.

    The art is beautiful. I feel quite sad now it's all about healing and therefore drawing to a close.

    The whole thing with the cider is quite touchingly nostalgic. Drinking White Lightning or Thunderbird in the park when you're all 14/15 and then not being able to so much as smell cider again until you're old enough to discover the stuff that's actually seen an apple!

    Those first hangovers are like no hangover you'll ever suffer again...
