    • Alex Woolfson


  • Jenny Blue

    oooh! aaah! O.O preeettttyyy…. :D I can’t stop smiling!!!!!! It looks gorgeous! (or mebbe  I just like flames. a lot. hmmmm… XD and can you tell me where I can buy tickets to that movie? :D

    • Alex Woolfson

      If only I could… ;)

      • Jenny Blue

        oh well, no one would be able to watch it 
        ’cause all your fans would be squealing through the whole thing! at least I would… :D And I’m still smiling! what would I do without your comics? hmmm.. probably get more sleep, but who needs sleep! gooooo alex!

        • Alex Woolfson

          Hehe. Thank you.

          • Jenny Blue

            ‘welcome! :D

  • Trayvon Dante Brock

    Wait. Cute AND pyromancer? Pssh, I’m sold.

  • Lorescien

    Ginger. Adorable. Pyromancer. And what makes this even better? That movie sign in the background. ;) I’d love to see that if it ever happened.

    SUDDEN THOUGHT. I totally wanna see Artifice as a live-action film. Screw so many peoples’ prejudices against homosexuality, I’d go to see it a thousand times just to show my support! (But only if it was accurate and didn’t have douchy people as the actors, of course. :P) Would that be at all possible…? :3

    • Alex Woolfson

      It would be something I might be interested in seeing too. And anything’s possible. ;)

      • The Doctor

        >o>  Well…my friend [who looks scary like Deacon] and I /are/ planning to cosplay Jeff and Deacon this summer.  Maybe we’ll record something and put it on youtube.  XD  A fake movie trailer.  >:3

        • Ayella

          Now I would love to see THAT in the fan art section!

        • Alex Woolfson

          Now, that sounds like a lot of fun. :)

    • Becky

      Totally, Lorescien! I am excited for the day that stories like Artifice are made into Hollywood blockbusters.  :)  AND for the day that such stories are correctly categorized as “smart sci-fi”, and Netflix stops suggesting scores of “Gritty Gay/Lesbian Dramas!” to me “because of my interest in Torchwood and Doctor Who”.  Wtf, Netflix?  I love to see gay characters getting the chance to be genuinely awesome heroes, but c’mon, Torchwood is just intelligent and slightly-goofy sci-fi, not a dedicated study on sexuality and society.  “Gritty Dramas” are not really my style.  (As their computers should be able to deduce from my religious watching of Phineas & Ferb.  :P )  [/tangential rant]

      And Alex, looks like TYP is shaping up to be another intriguing tale!  Can’t wait to see where it goes.  Keep up the excellent work!  <3

      • Alex Woolfson

        Thank you, Becky! :D (And I too would love to see blockbusters with heroes, the heroes, be guys who happen to like other guys. Some day, maybe…. :) )

        • Becky


    • AnyOtaku

      I have though of that too… I mean it would be really awesome to see Artifice turned into a movie, with good actors and the same story. One day, I’ll work for the movies (i hope so) and I think it would be brilliant to make a movie like this… of course that if it would be possible, I’d love to make one with this! 
      And even tough there are still people who don’t like “gays”, I think it would be possitivetly apreciated for most of the public =D
      Yup, it would be really cool!

  • Cheezie

    Aahahaha “YES!”

    I’ll so love this.

    • Alex Woolfson

      Thank you, Cheezie! :D

  • tzelemel

    So, going to a gay bar gives you superpowers? Cool. Must go more often.

    • Alex Woolfson

      Worked for me.

    • strangeangel24601

      Sounds legit.

    • Celestia’s Snout

      Power to suppress your gag reflex.

      • Maria White

        No no no, I got that power from Reddit.

        But when i went to my first bar I was able to induce amnesia.

  • Ayashi Otaku Shabazz

    “Now showing Artifice 2″ I love it!! lol

      • Alex Woolfson


  • Alex S

    Love the fire effect. And is Artifice 2 a hint of something to come? Are you making a sequel?

    • Alex Woolfson

      No plans for that right now. But I’d love to. :)

    I got confused…In the last page I thought he had got into the bar… But in this page…he didn’t.

    So what happened? o.O

    • Audrey Pond

      It’s my understanding that this is after going into the bar; Celebrating, I think.
