A web-series created by EB-the-GAMER (otherwise known as King Ghost here), Deviants of Art is a crossover comic featuring various characters, personalities, locations, and homages to various movies, video games, television shows, internet-related subjects, etc. in a separate universe located in the world-wide-web.
EB, a post depressed contributor to DeviantArt, gets sucked into the Internet Universe by a mysterious force, due to a an off-hand wish he made while in a tough time of his life. This landed him in an area called the "Internet Underworld" where he is saved by the ex-ultimate villain Top-Hat. Upon rescue, EB is told that the same force that pulled him into the internet did so with numerous other people, and is causing various problems in the Internets worlds. from there it becomes a matter of saving those who were brought into the internet, and their characters from different threats, and finding a way back home to reality.
Beginning on June 14th, 2013, the comic is a work in progress uploaded on DeviantArt on a bi-weekly basis. Word of God states that full credit will go to the original creators of things that aren't his own that are featured in the comic in any way.

Tropes appearing in Deviants Of Art:
- Awesomeness by Analysis: Blind Man, from one sniff, smells darkness, steam, and oil, which leads him to realize that the character he is currently locking swords with used to be the ultimate villain.
- Be Careful What You Wish For: EB makes a wish in the opening narration while he's depressed, stating that he wants to get away from his life. This wish is granted after his situation gets better.
- Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Michael Scott AKA Serial Killer Johnahs Jackler
- Dark Is Not Evil: Top-Hat, when getting ready to fight, has small, dark, smoke-like wisps trail off him which Blind Man identifies as darkness.
- Evil Counterpart: Nega-Me to EB
- Gross-Up Close-Up / Nightmare Face: Whenever Blind Man gets particularly upset or mad.
- Jagged Mouth: Quite a few characters, like Jeff, Blind Man, and EB himself.
- King Mook: The Infectablot to the Infectables.
- Lampshade Hanging: lots of it, from discussing the amount of room there is for dialog to characters noticing their name is mis-spelled.
- Mega-Microbes: The Infectables, which are rat-shaped amoebas that attach things to themselves, like skulls, to make faces.
- Method Acting: EB is introduced in the comic emulating various character ideas.
- Mix-and-Match Critters: In his first appearance, EB sketches out some bug-like creatures, and after a pause, swaps different parts of the monsters to create new ones.
- Mr. Exposition: Jang in chapter 1, who explains the reason as to why the internet is actually its own universe, and Top-Hat in Chapter 2, who explains why he isn't a villain anymore. In the second case Top-Hat eventually expresses a dislike of being a Captain Obvious.
- Obviously Evil: Blind Man, the first villain featured in the comic, who wears what appears to be a black leotard, and has a cane with wicked-looking hidden blades in it.
- "Reason You Suck" Speech: Slite tells Jackler simply that even though he's a threat, there are so many villains that outdo him that he is almost irrelevant.
- Reality Ensues: Jeff and Jang go to a phone to alert the other guards of EB's and Top Hat's escape in progress, only to argue that Jeff can't dial the phone due to having one hand.
- Red Baron: Jackler "Mulcher of a Million"
- Shout-Out: when its face is slashed at, the Internet Entity yells "By Slenderman's tentacle THAT HURT!!"
- Stupid Evil: Blind Man's defining trait. he consistently picks on his Infectables (particularly the Infectablot), who he relies on to alert him to things and aid in attacks.
