Dis/Engage

Dis/Engage is the story of a pair of confused superpowered individuals: a man who is bored with the fame that comes with being the hero, Luis A.K.A Phoenix, and a woman - seen only as an ice-wielding villain - who finds herself trying to gain Phoenix's attention, the Ice Queen. One day Luis becomes conflicted after battling the Ice Queen and he feels that maybe he's in love with this crazy icicle-throwing woman? How do you admit your feelings to a person you've been fighting nonstop for 2 years? Does she feel the same?

@Theorah: Thank you! I'm sure Dean would be happy to hear his script did all those things so well! I'm happy I got to illustrate such a well paced story. Also, thanks for your comment on the previous page about the cityscapes, I worked hard on those XD

Aw it was a lovely comic- I'm amazed how much atmosphere, character development, build up and pacing you managed to squeeze into just a small story! A very good example of how a short can have just as much emotional build up and sentiment as longer stories if paced in the right way.

@MirrorVision: Short but sweet is often the best! Thanks so much for reading.
@3o-s-knight: I'm so happy the colours and shinyness and artwork in general were good! :D And I agree that it wouldn't be a bad thing to see more of these characters haha. They may play on the superhero tropes and types but they certainly break the mould too!

OK, so i have several things to say abut thisa comic

first of all, visually, it was , just, STUNNING. it was just real eyecandy, so appealing to look at, the colourschemes and shinyness were really nice to look at, and really work well with jades style, whilst remaining true to a kind of super-hero esque style!

the story was so incredibly sweet ;w; I think hwat i liked most aobut this was the fact it was self contained; and yet the dialogue and expressions just gave these characters so much.,..character!! it works absolutely beauitfuly as a short peice, there's enough here to be satisfied with the ending, i feel it forfills the meaning it was getting at, i liked that they broke super hero stereotypes. but i also feel there could be more stories written aoibut the characters, as in, the characters were so strong i want to know more aobut them!! but as a short, it wasn't non sensical or badly paced. it was like a really nice, delicate bit of prose

yep those are my badly written tohughts, real real beautful job guys ;w;~

And that's Dis/Engage! I've had a blast writing this, so I hope that came through. I sincerely wish I could write more about them, their world and Luis's & Ice Queen's love.

In the meantime, thank you very much for reading! Remember: you don't have to be super to fall in love, but love can make you super.

This was actually an extra page we added near the end of thumbnailing as we both felt the pacing just needed a little something more here. I'm really glad we did, those ice walls are pretty cool! (pff)

She's so adorable :') and yet IMO so elegant the way she sits in her icy throne when he comes in!

If we had More Phoenixes in this world then maybe we could avoid war and junk. Although I think that only applies to parties in love, and I don't wanna complicate international relations like that.
