* CentralTheme: Each issue has one, and many have several. As a whole Demo says quite a lot about the human condition, and the juxtaposition of the mundane and the mystical (or at least offbeat).

Each issue is a stand-alone story that follows a single person, dealing with their lives, relationships and emotions. Originally the concept focused on the supernatural: the protagonists discovering powers or abilities, or [[InMediaRes dealing with ones they already had]], and while this is still present in many issues, over time it was slowly deemphasized.

!!Provides examples of:
* AndNowForSomeoneCompletelyDifferent: Kinda... Except, that's the point, so it's not really unexpected.

* CompellingVoice
* DecompressedComic
* EmpathicShapeshifter
* HowDoIShotWeb: Deconstructed.
* {{Immortality}}: Type I
* InvoluntaryShapeshifting: "Girl You Want"
* {{Irony}}: [[spoiler: "Girl You Want"; Kate's powers mean that she physically changes to whatever people want to see whenever they look at her, and she spends the first part of the story lamenting that no one sees her for her. But when she meets someone who doesn't cause her to shapeshift, she immediately jumps to conclusions, projecting her own desires onto this person the same way that everyone else projects their desires onto her.]]
* PowerIncontinence: Why YES.
* PsychicPowers: Several
** TheEmpath / PsychicLink: [[spoiler:Double subverted]]
** {{Telekinesis}}
* SomethingForEveryone: "Girl You Want" again
* TimeTravel
* WaterIsAir
