This ending was purposely left for people to come to their own conclusions about what was happening.
And wow... 1326 pages... five years... I can't believe its actually over. Honestly. I've been drawing comics ever since I was in elementary school, and this is seriously the first one I've ever finished. (Fanbases really help force you to keep going, haha.)
I really have no clue what to say. You've read through this whole comic, even through the plot holes, and random character disappearances (Yes, I'm fully aware of those.) but you stuck through to the end. And I really have to say thank you so much.
This comic has really taught me a lot through the years, and even with its faults it seemed to gather a really caring, awesome fanbase. I love you guys for sticking through with this, and I thank you for actually reading it through. I think I'm just starting to repeat myself, but... just thank you very much.
I hope this comic was a fun ride, I had a ton of fun (and frustrations) while making it.
Of course, me being me, I can't help myself but draw comics. I will probably either take a short break, or learn to pace myself, but yeah. I have a new comic thats been in the works for a while for those who are still interested in keeping up with my newest work. Its nothing like Mortifer, its not even vaguely similar genre wise. Its a romance/adventure/mystery. I've been wanting to branch out and really test myself, and this was it. Heck, I'm even trying out the romance genre, a genre I've always had problems with (obvious love triangles and predictable B.S. anyone?) but I wanted to see how I could handle the genre myself. And Adventure certainly isn't my best field either. Travelers of Yore, readable over here http://www.smackjeeves.com/comicprofile.php?id=98254
I don't know how else to thank you guys, or really show my appreciation. Just know that its there, and even with Mortifer's problems, I'm happy you stuck through. Cheers!
Pfft of course it ends on a cliffhanger! I'm gonna miss this comic <3 I'm guessing it's either Joey at the end, or Zebi shapeshifting into Joey, or Kole somehow being alive :'D But it's most likely one of the other two choices I suppose.
And now that it's concluded, are you setting up to release the last volume?
Also, it's been quite a ride. I remember I joined up near the beginning, honestly thinking it'd collapse like so many other comics. Only after you released the first volume did I realize that this would stick around 'til the end, and I'm glad it did. :D
I can't believe its over, I know that I have never coment but I have been reading this like for 4 years, and wow what a end, I'm going to miss Mortifer, it is a great history and I'm glad that you finished it and share it with us until the end, all of the characters were unic.
And I think that its Joey or maybe the guy that helps Valentine to get out of hell? (don't remember his name) any way congratulations!! and of cours that I'm going to follow your other works, you are such a good artist!!
Thanks for this years!!
Pd: sorry for my grammar english its not my lenguaje and I'm lazy to cheek the grammar xD
After the last few chapters, it's finally come to a twisted cliffhanger in the end.
This is truly one of the best things I have read in the past few years. Congratulations in the end and thank you. :)
Wow...I can't believe It's over. I've been fan for...three years now? Awesome ending.
Mortifer was the first real serious comic I read on smackjeeves, and will always, to me, be one of the best.
AKSSHAKDH I can't believe it's over D':
I've been with this comic for a long while, and I'm rather sad to see it end. It was always one of the first comics I'd check for any sort of update, so it's going to be odd to not have to check it anymore.
I CAN HAS IDEA?
I think... Well, no... that wouldn't work out... Alright, did he say Zebi couldn't shape-shift, or could he? If he can, then I believe that Zebidiah(sp?) shape-shifted into Joey. Or either that, Joey came back. Just a thought, though...
Congratulations on finishing your story! I'm so sad it's over, I'm not really on smackjeeves anymore but this is the only comic I've seriously kept checking on it's updates.
I loved reading mortifer all these years, thank you for all your hard work! :)
Congrats for finishing!! This comic has been one of the best that I have read and I followed it for all these years. I love it so much. Thank you for making it awesome and amazing. Such a great cliffhanger, I hope someday you could give a hint of who the person is. Again, thank you for making such a great comic. Gonna miss it and cannot wait for future projects. :D
Since i like happy endings and you're letting me make up my own ending, Kole somehow got revived. Don't know how, it's just that after the depressing ending of an anime i watched recently, I want something happy now
I'll miss you!
Congrats on finishing Mortifer! I know I have hardly ever commented on the site, but I've been keeping up with this comic for years, and although I'm sad it's over I'm happy for you! Good luck and keep comicking!
This was such a great webcomic that I am sad that it has to end. I like this ending, even though I have no real idea as to what is going on.
I joined relatively late in the game but it was a blast to read through the archives and see what was going on. The best part for me was when Joey killed the cop on top of the building.
Nice to see all of the side characters actually have an ending of some kind as opposed to fading in the void like in other animes/movies/comics/etc
A bit late to ask but
At Chapter 36 pg 35 it is mentioned that Kole has finally come to the surface for the first time, and in CH 13 pg 14 she lied about going to Karolek, and Karolek was the first guy that Joey met in hell.
Has Joey still been in contact with Karolek since escaping and using him as a teleporter when convenient since in Chapter 13 pg 14 Kole lied about going to Karolek which is treated as completely normal? And in ch 36 pg 35 it is mentioned that she has just come back to the surface, so did Karolek drop her off? And why has Karolek not come back to the surface also, can he bring just his hands? And how did Joey find and befriend Karolek again after the rather entertaining first encounter?
AAaaaah! I don't even know what to say myself ... I still remember the day when I first found Mortifer. It was like the same day you put it up and I was hooked by the very first pages. And to see it being fulfilled like this ... man ... it's so awesome. So few people finish their comics. And with e length like this! :O
You did an amazing job, Piggie! I really look forward to see what new comics you'll bring us.
Also. Nice, nice, nice, nice ending. It was sad to see both Kole and Joey dead, but this ending really make sup for it. I prefer to think that Joey is aaaalive.. Thank god for Zebi! :)
Man I can't believe it's over ;m; This was an amazing series and I've loved it throughout, well, everything! <3 Man I will never be able to get used to Mortifer not updating, but even so, this series was amazing and I LOVED IT. oh watch me repeat myself due to lack of words to express this FEELING <333
I don't think Joey ever made the pact with Kole, because if he did, he had to listen to her orders like Zebidiah did to Vladimyre's. And if it's like that, I would think that Joey's still alive, because he didn't die of the knife, Valentine put in his throat. So there are only two possibilities:
1st. He made a pact with someone else we don't know, or
2nd. He isn't like any other demon and none of the usual methods work to kill him.
Or he is a cat and has nine lives :3
It's been a long road and I'm happy you stuck to it. I'm a little sad to see this comic go, but I'm happy all the same. Thanks for such an awesome comic and I know you will make many more wonderful ones. Can't wait until you get signed with Tokyo Pop or another manga publishing company. Your talent is too good to be ignored. Here's me cheering you on! 1! 2! 3! CHEERS!!!
I found out your comic yesterday afternoon. Once I started reading I couldn't stop. You really have some talent when it comes to plot. The whole story, twists, characters and development made read this trough and trough until 6a.m. today. I also loved the fact that I could witness your art develop and grow, and it really is amazing and beautiful how it turned out. It's sad to see it end, but I can only wish you'll do more and better! I sincerely hope the best for your future.
For the longest time, I refused to finish Mortifer...After Piper was born I stopped reading. Even though it wasn't a completely happy moment, at least people were alive. That was good enough for me.
I just made myself read it.............................................VAAALLLEEENTTTIIINNEEEE ISSSS ALLLIIIIVEEEE!!!!! <3<3<3 Screw Matthew, Joey and Kole! Valentine lives! :3
Don't get me wrong, I love Kole and Matthew... Joey not so much towards the end...but Valentine FTW! Piper and her daddy can live happily ever after! Know why? Because I'm pretending that the ending was just Piper's Granddaddy coming to give her a hug. :3 Happy ending! :D Win!
You rule Ms LoverofPiggies!
Keep being awesome! You truly are my hero :3
Long live LoP!
I wanted to say Congradulations about completeing this epic! It's been a long haul and I'm proud to have been able to be here since near the beginning!
As others have said, this comic is the reason I joined Smackjeeves and for it ot be over is both sad and exciting! This comic has inspired a lot of my own work (writing wise) and I'm so glad to hear you're going to continue making comics! I can't wait to follow you on the next comic!
Wow, I don't even remember how long I've followed this comic. It's definitly one of the better ones out there - despite plot holes and random characters that didn't seem to have much relevance, it made the reader get addicted to the story. I've seen several other comics where the art is magnificent and the story wellthought-out, but they simply didn't that special "something" that I can't describe - that something, that makes you want to know how it all ends.
Good job :D
oh my ><
arrgghh I think this story will haunt me with the cliff hanger 0_0 i swear comic authors love to see the audience squirm <3 ahh i love Mortifer i think its crazy that me and a ton of others have be reading it for years! Wow you practically have a paparazzi. Kole and Joey are still my favorite. Are you planning on continuing fringe happy (it was really intriguing)? But thanks for the complete(wow) adventure, PS: I would like to think that its Joey and that Kole didn't die <3 its official i love you Loverofpiggies (sniff i miss mathew too)
I just wanted to say that, while I just finally started and finished reading this recently, it's easily become one of my all-time favorite webcomics--no, comics in general. Thank you for sharing it with us!
I'm kind of sad I wasn't able to follow it while it was being made, but reading it all at once was quite the experience. This world and the characters you created were brilliant.
It takes a lot to invest your readers in your characters and really make us care about them, but you definitely got it down. ;o; The story was great, too--I didn't want it to end, but I couldn't stop reading.
I know there's like...a bazillion other comments here, and this might not be answered but, will you be releasing the rest of the volumes in print form?
Anyway, I'm definitely looking forward to seeing what you do next!
I can't believe I find such an amazing comic only to find it already ended before I even began. =\ At least I have finally finished reading the whole thing. XD It has been incredible to see you grow not only as an artist, but as a storyteller as well. You can see the story flowing much more eloquently than at the very beginning.
As for the mysterious person at the end. Who found the written name on Joey to say it was definitely Kole who made the pact? Who else do we know in this series who was raised by our dear OCD psychopath? None other than our dear Valentine! Did Zebi spy on Joey in the bath or something to make sure? (Although I surely wouldn't put that past him. =P)
Karolek probably wasn't too happy with Kole's death either, and we know he has the ability to travel from Hell to Earth. And he has that major bipolar issue.
This ending is yet another example of how great Mortifer truly is. Even the ending keeps the readers guessing and involved with the story. Thank you Lover Of Piggies!
Oh. My. Gosh. That was one hell of a ride. I loved your comic! I was a little sad that I found it after everything was all said and done. But it was amazing! It made me laugh so much. It even made me cry (like a baby sometimes). The only thing I wish is that I would have found the comic sooner!
Although i think it could be Joey, i believe there's a possibility that it's Kole Matthew or even Lucifer.
Just finished reading this from start to end and i think this was well done - both the art and story.
I just read the entirety of this comic in one sitting and all I can say is, amazing. I loved everything about this comic and will definitely come back and reread this one day. Thank you for creating and posting such an amazing comic and actually finishing it.
As for this mysterious voice, I'm going to believe that it's Joey. :D
I know this probably won't even be noticed, but HOLY HELL, THAT WAS A FUCKING GOOD STORY! I am so glad I read this all in one day or else I would've gone MAD. Love the characters, the plot, everything! Never a dull moment!
And because Joey was my favorite character, I'm gonna believe that was his voice at the end, therefore making it plausible that it could've been Kole instead and that both are alive!
Ooh, this gives me an idea~!
(If you ever see this, CQ, just know that you have inspired a writer to create a story)
