  • Hehe. He looks so happy-dorky in panel 5. He really has this face. -> 😀

  • LOL Now Showing: Artifice 2 

  • Lol, Artifice 2. I wonder if that is supposed to give us some sort of idea. . .

  • Sharon Kerr-Bullian

    whee! Artifice 2! 😀

  • Ayella

    Hahaha, not only has Artifice been filmed, but there is a sequel as well. Oh, lately all my dreams come true. 😉

  • mikakitten

  • Lithekitty

    Love the nod to artifice thar!

  • Ryn

    heh, a ref to Artifice and ‘Heros’.

  • Jenny Blue

    oooh! aaah! O.O preeettttyyy…. 😀 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? 😀

    • 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… 😀 And I’m still smiling! what would I do without your comics? hmmm.. probably get more sleep, but who needs sleep! gooooo alex!

  • 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

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

      • >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!

        • 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.  😛 )  [/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

      • Thank you, Becky! 😀 (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.

  • tzelemel

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

    • 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.

  • “Now showing Artifice 2” I love it!! lol

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

    • No plans for that right now. But I’d love to. 🙂

  • AnyOtaku

    • Carole Henderson

       What he said x2

  • 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

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

    • Kid Chaos

      So, he got a phone number?
