* CreepyChild: Carrie, the ghost of a raped and murdered little girl. Actually, to have suffered such a violent assault and death, she's pretty chipper for a ghost, but when Joe finds her murderer, she quite calmly requests that Joe decapitate the man. And give her the head.

Added DiffLines:

* ImColdSoCold: A scene which was never adapted into the film: This trope invoked because of shock, bloodloss, and death when Eric removes one of his first targets at the shins. Quite possibly the most unpleasant scene of the lot.

* RightWingMilitiaFanatic: The bad guys in this one are a group of farmers connected to an antigovernment militia. Iris runs foul of them when she catches them poisoning coyotes, and after a confrontation with them, they blow up her workplace and kill her and her unborn child.

* RecycledScript: Moreso than the usual, this story is basically a remake of the original, except Eric is a foreign in Japan and Shelly is a Japanese girl.

* WildHair: Eric hair is ALWAYS a mess. It should be noted however, that in 2011 his [[EightiesHair mullet]] actually became a full fledged [[BarbarianLongHair mane]].

* KarmicDeath: [[spoiler: Harold, a serial rapist and murderer of little girls, takes trophies from his victims after killing them(usually their shoes or panties). When Joe kills him, Carrie's ghost demands a trophy of her own: his head.]]
* LooksLikeCesare: Carrie in ''Curare'' is pale and has very small(relative to her size) black streaks similar to Eric's on her face.

* RapeAsDrama: Carrie was viciously raped(causing such trauma that the coroner says her internal organs ruptured and he can't even be sure if she was also sodomized) before being strangled to death.

* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: Shelly is blonde, sweet, innocent and angelic. Being Eric in love, and being a vehicle to O'barr grief, it's a case in which we sympathize rather than thinking of Shelly as a MarySue

* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: The "crow bringing a soul back from the land of the dead to put the wrong things right" mythology was created for the film franchise. It is never explicitly stated in the comic book what is going on. A possible interpretation of events is that Eric was actually revived on the operating table and has been subsisting for a year, and is now insane and maybe insensitive to physical pain, as a result of his brain injuries, grief and anger.

* {{Psychopomp}}: There are two in the comic, first we have [[TheGrimReaper The Skull Cowboy]]. He's a total enigma, but for what we can guess, he tries his best, in his own twisted way to teach Eric to go on with his life. He succeeds in the end. On the other hand we have the mysterious WomanInBlack who appears in several chapters wearing a wedding [[spoiler: or funeral]] veil, watching over Eric, and in the end [[spoiler: kissing him]] when he accepts it's time to leave. [[spoiler: The last page it's her walking on the desert]].

** He's [[{{Bishonen}} androgynously sexy]] enough in more than a few drawings that EvenTheGuysWantHim.
** On the other hand, when he's not a PrettyBoy his muscle and facial factions make him the [[{{Hunk}} opposite]]

* MeaningfulName: Officer Albrecht and Captain Hook, both named after members of Music/JoyDivision / Music/NewOrder. Eric's last name (gleaned from a file folder with Hook's thumb obscuring the middle) begins with "c" and ends with "s"; it very well may be "Curtis".
