'''Action Philosophers!''' is a comic book series by artist Ryan Dunlavey and writer Fred Van Lente, it follows the cartoon adventures of caricatures of history's most famous philosophers. Possessing broad humor and making the often complex and metaphorical ideas of philosophy more easily understood than a traditional text would, the comic won the Xeric Grant award in late 2004. The comic concluded with its ninth issue in September 2007.

* ViewersAreMorons: {{Lampshaded}} by the Authors as the reason for the creation of these comics. A TruthInTelevision example is mentioned in the recommended books of the Freud-Jung-Campbell issue where it turns out that [[spoiler: Jung wrote a book for his students, simplifying his ideas, because he wanted them to actually understand what he was teaching]].

* FreudWasRight: Averted InUniverse ''in Freud's own strip''. While it shows the importance of Freud's philosophy in the field of psychology, it doesn't play around with any sexual overtones.

* {{Badass}}: Plato is a TruthInTelevision example. He was a wrestler before he became a philosopher, and his name means "broad shoulders". The other Philosophers were not really Badasses, but since this is a comic book [[TookALevelInBadass many become one]].

* JackKirby and StanLee: The chapter on St. Augustine includes an explanation of Manichaeanism, written and illustrated in a wonderfully Lee-Kirbyesque style: "I have imbued thee with the power '''fluorescent'''! Go forth and claim the battle that is thy birthright, '''FIRSTMAN'''!" Specifically, it's a takeoff on 1966's ''The Coming of ComicBook/{{Galactus}}''.

* ThePhilosopher: [[CaptainObvious Obviously]]. Though it should also be noted that, by the nature of the comic itself, it ''subverts'' this trope by making them [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin ACTION PHILOSOPHERS]].
