Oh, Jeff… Dude…
All right… Deep breath. First off, there will be a bonus page on Wednesday. I’d like to send out a special thanks and a warm welcome to new supporter Thomas M. for their generous donation this week!
Also, a big hug goes out to long-time Artifice superfriend Larisa V. for their super-generous $25 donation! Thank you, Larisa!
And… as I’ve mentioned in the comments before, it was my goal to make sure I could tell a complete story arc as a webcomic by writing a shorter sci-fi story with a clear beginning, middle and end. And we’re now finally beginning the last scene of Artifice. Hard to believe it’s been almost a year since I started posting these pages up! And I have to say that you all, with your thoughtful comments and brilliant insights, have made the whole journey a tremendous pleasure. Having the opportunity to tell this kind of story, the kind of story I’ve always wanted to tell, and find that that there are others out there who actually would want to read it… Well, it’s tremendously gratifying. I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
But it’s not over yet! So… what do you think is going to happen? Will Deacon go through with this devil’s bargain with Maven? Will Jeff be able to talk him out of it? Will they even be allowed to speak to each other? It will all be revealed over the next several pages. Hope to see y’all on Wednesday!
