#583 – Blackstone

When I was a kid I would practice magic tricks and then show them to my mom. She was always very amazed by what I could do. Now that I’m an adult and interact with other kids… I have a feeling that I wasn’t actually as impressive as she made me seem to be. 🙂

    Hey! Two biffs!

  2. The Dustin says:

    I wish my mirror worked that way. This time he didn’t have to dodge the guy coming out of the mirror.

  3. Mophtran says:

    I did learn quite a few card tricks. Useful for impressing schoolmates and a few teachers, but not much else. Hooray for useless skills!

  4. Kbman says:

    Oh, I get it, you’re making up for not drawing Biff in the Houdini comic.

  5. SEA says:

    Yeah, too bad the audience would probably like the mirror biff trick better =p

  6. PsychoDuck says:

    Wait… How do we know which one is the real Biff? AUGH!

    The Duck Has spoken.

  7. Fafnir13 says:

    This is the scariest Biff I’ve ever seen. There’s usually some bizarre form of reality present, but this utter breakage of all things real….what would happen should Biff turn his powers toward evil?

  8. TheMusicGuy says:

    Something about this picture seems veeery familiar…it has a certain poetry about it that I can’t quite place.

  9. PsychoDuck says:

    A ha! I figured out Biff’s trick! ALL THOSE CARDS ARE THE SAME :O

    Or Chris got lazy! That could also be it.

    The Duck Has Spoken.

  10. PsychoDuck says:

    Oh, wait, nevermind… Those are the backs of the cards… I’m a moron. ALSO I’M TIRED. So good night, sleep deprived brain.

    The Duck Has Spoken.

  11. RG says:

    Interesting way to practice. 🙂

  12. Nick Steele says:

    ‘S the first time we’ve seen another person, no?

    Even if it IS mirror-biff…

  13. Adam says:

    god your comics are the best….

    hmmm i wonder if….. *he runs off and does something “Biff”*

  14. MaskedMan says:

    OK, now THAT is just surreal.

    But perfectly Biff!

  15. -JAD- says:

    I’ve through this too… not with card tricks, but winning games (card and board games).

    Only a few years later, when I myself let a child win, my brain had this déjà vu and I realized I hadn’t actually won in my time.


  16. Micah says:

    Is the last one going to be called “Dresden?”

  17. AdmiralChaos says:

    I think you should paint that on something expensive and sell it to an art gallery to put in the surrealism section. Seriously!

  18. Jon M. says:

    Dam, that’s a pretty impressive trick!

  19. tpiro says:

    But which one is the REAL Biff?

  20. Chris says:

    @tpiro – You’ll have to ask a question that only the REAL Biff would know!

  21. trevor says:

    Ever notice how when you can tell that someone’s magic trick is fake, you can never seem to prove it to evreyone else who’s watching?

  22. Krasno says:

    @Chris- What question would that be…? o_O throw me a bone!

  23. no name says:

    why does one Biff have a chair and the other has a stool?

  24. starseedjenny says:

    @Krasno – It doesn’t matter. The fake Biff will try to talk to answer the question, while REAL Biff would immediately go and do something illogical and amazing to show you.

    @no name – The both look like chairs to me. You can’t see the back the way he’s sitting.

  25. Torg says:

    @Krasno: What is the proper way to operate a handheld GPS unit?

  26. Reg says:

    What the heck?!
    Hmm, maybe now it can be offically said that for the first time there was a second person in a Biff comic!

    @ Kbman: lol

  27. Colin says:

    your mum sounds like an angel

  28. Bononoman says:

    @ no name Yeah you’re right, the mirror Biff doesn’t have a chair! Maybe in Mirror world the backs of chairs don’t exist because Mirror wood is hard to come by, who puts trees infront of mirrors?

  29. Drakey says:

    On further thought, this reminds me of the quote “The fool didn’t know it couldn’t be done, so he went ahead and did it.”

  30. Chris says:

    A Biff clone of sorts, thats a scary thought.

  31. MadDavid says:

    Am I the only person who understands Micah’s reference?

  32. Pottery says:

    Twice the Biff means twice the havoc and hopefully that means twice the comics made per week . ;P

  33. i.half4 says:

    A mirror can only reflect what’s in front of it. A real person has the power to choose what is seen in the mirror. The real Biff is the one who chooses a card.

    @ MadDavid. As far as I know. Explain please?

  34. speearr says:

    haha excellent! oh and my sister loves book 2 too!

  35. Kagedviper says:

    is mirror biff biff’s arch nemisis?

  36. DJ says:

    Chris, you have really out done yourself. I’m serious. I saw this comic and started worshipping you. Bravo, Chris. Bravo.

  37. no name says:

    @ i.half4 – all the comics monday through thursday have been magicians names… Dresden is another magician, right, Micah/MadDavid?

  38. Amake says:

    Ooh, the first actual person besides Biff appearing in the comic! Okay, so it’s another Biff, but it’s a step. . .

  39. Lemonbread says:

    This made me laugh out loud.

  40. Vanguard says:

    Ha ha, this one’s awesome!

  41. SurveySays says:

    That conversation went a little something like this. “Hey can you help me out?” “…I don’t know…” “jeez i said i was sorry for punching you in the shoulder that one time. let it go.” “…/fine/”
