The FREAKANGELS webcomic goes live mid-February 2008. However, the online community bolted on to it goes live today. Whitechapel lives at http://www.freakangels.com/whitechapel

It’s a little different from my two previous boards. It was conceived of as a discussion area for FREAKANGELS, and it’ll still serve that. But I decided I just wanted a place that reflected all of my interests. It’s not a comics-centric place, though there’s plenty of space for that. But I’ve also created space for Second Lifers, the steampunk/retropunk crowd, the people who like following the mad science and signs of the apocalypse, music and art etc.

Whitechapel doesn’t require you to use your full real name, as The Engine did, but it does need a real email address to work (in case you need your password re-sent, which we can’t do for you).

Anyway. That’s where you can find me now, when I’m not here giving you hideous things to look at. Spread the link as far and wide as you like. All are welcome.

Except that bloke standing behind you. Yes, him. I don’t like the look of him.

Is it me, or are they getting some things right? The website’s woken up nicely. And how can you not love a magazine that calls itself “Gothic Fantasy & Phantasmagoria For The 21st Century”? This is, I suspect, where the Neo-Victorian aesthetic breaks back into print from where it’s been laying and mutating in the internet and club communities. And I’ve just noticed that the current issue apparently features illustrations by Molly Crabapple and Star St. Germain. Hell, I may even have to get myself a subscription…
