Hi, all! Just in case you didn't see our updates on social media, we've been dealing with a pretty dramatic kitty emergency this past week.
Our boy Guthrey got himself into a pRead More
Hello! We hope your August is positively spiffing. New AAO is a week away, and we are absolutely, for sure, 100% calm about that. We hope you enjoy the new chapter teaser/cover page. We had so much fun designing it.
We have an announcement pertaining to the weekly comic that sounds big, but really nothing is changing.Read More
See this handsome fella? Yes, the one getting bird smooches. His name is Adam. He is a brilliant artist, he has a smile to rival the sunshine, and he is one of the funniest people in the room. Any room. He's also my husband and best friend.Read More
I'm 13 episodes in, and I'm pretty sure Star Trek Voyager is not as good as Next Gen and DS9. But the Beowulf holodek episode is really fun. You guys remember when they couldn't replicate new lungs for Neelix because it was too complex but then the next episode they replicated brain tissue and then resurrected a dead alien from a race Voyager'd never even encountered before?Read More
Greetings from the harsh northern wilderness! We've, tragically, been unable to cobble together a weekly comic in the midst of our foraging and fending off black bears. Rest assured, we'll be back up and running next week, provided we survive the elements. I mean, I've only had ice cream once so far. And we haven't even bought any fudge yet. I need at least 5 bricks if I'm going to last the winter.Read More
Here we are again, beautiful readers (or, Jerry. Hi Jerry).
Sorry this one didn't release with the comic at 1. I was snoozing, and my better half forgot to wake me up. I crossed that woeful threshold where a power nap becomes a second sleep. Or a second dream.
WARFRAME REFERENCE.Read More
Happy Wednesday, doves. April is positively careening towards May, so we're firing on all cylinders to churn out the rest of the month's content (ugh, I hate that word). The funny thing is, we realized something about this job that would've made childhood Erin and Adam very happy. We realized that producing these weekly comics requires us to play current video games. Like, we need to purchase and play games to actually do our jobs and be relevant and all that nonsense. I mean, there's only so much mileage we can get out of the Mass Effect franchise (heads up new Mass Effect comic next week btw).Read More
Welcome, one and all, to another Wednesday evening. Our fourth daily episode of The Great British Baking Show is just wrapping up. Adam's shading and filling and agonizing and rallying. I'm skyping color and garment samples to him whilst cobbling together this blog. All in a few days' work, right?
Oh, side note, we have a podcast now. Go here, if you'd like to hear us embarrass ourselves for an hour: TRICKSY WIZARD - SOUNDCLOUD
Anyway what were we talking about? Oh yeah, the comic.Read More
Warframe really is the gift that keeps on giving. It's one of the reasons we haven't caved and bought a Nintendo Switch yet. Wells Fargo is another reason (as referenced by last week's strip).Read More
So this is what a milestone feels like.
The first pages of our graphic novel "Alive, Alive Oh!" are up on the site at last. Secretly they've been up for two days already, but that was back when we were calling the book by its working title "Wayfarers".Read More
It's a very special day at TWHQ and around the world. It's a day to celebrate love and companionship, which is really the heart and soul of this whole operation. This week's upload's something a little different, but it made us feel things, so why not? That's what art's really for, anyway.Read More
Full disclosure: we'll probably never run out of Dragon Age jokes. For a game that's not meant to be a comedy we sure do keep finding stuff to laugh at. And not even the easy targets like the infamous romance scenes from Dragon Age: Origins. Don't bother googling. Just grab two of your Barbies and mash their hips together to some Enya.Read More
Hello, Wednesday my old friend
I've come to post our jokes again
Because a Tenno, vaca-seeking
Forgot his Kubrow wasn't sleeping
And the vision that was posted in our shame, still remains
Within the blog... of silenceRead More
Nice to see you again, Wednesday! It feels like it's been a whole week. Two weeks even since we talked (since I couldn't be bothered to blog about last week's comic). This one deserves some words, though. After all, it's where we began.Read More
Oh, hey. Happy Wednesday, everybody!
This week's comic is about what happens when you realize that, at the end of the day, you actually hate everything you just made. We made two comics this week. One's currently on the front page, and the other one is dead.
We murdered it. Thoroughly. At about 5:30 yesterday evening. So there's that.Read More
*Clears throat* ...
YO LISTEN UP HERE'S THE STORY
ABOUT AN OLD JEDI THAT DRINKS ALL THE BLUE MILK
AND ALL DAY AND ALL NIGHT AND EVERYTHING HE DRINKS IS JUST BLUE
LIKE HIM INSIDE AND OUTSIDE.
*yelling in Dah-bah-dese intensifies and trails away*Read More
Wednesday, Wednesday (Bah-da bah-da-da-da). So good to me.
Hi, gang! We're back on schedule with an all new, not cripplingly sad comic this week (seriously, my mom wouldn't talk about it, and one Redditor said it made them even more depressed). Yikes-o-rama. And here we thought people would empathize with Shy Guy's passion for me-time. Ah well, there's despair at the heart of every good joke, right? Probably? ...No?Read More
Tricksy Wizard = Adam and Erin.
Together, we write comics, and Adam draws them.
It’s like Penny Arcade, except we kiss.
It’s like Penny Arcade.
We made that Mass Effect comic everyone thinks is a Wild Thornberries reference. It’s not.
This is a catch-all blog for our comic strips, illustrations, commissions and design work. We’re also doing another thing, which is very big, and in space. The final frontier.
