''Breakfast of the Gods'' was a completed {{webcomic}} by Brendan Douglas Jones in three volumes, best described as ''Comicbook/{{Watchmen}}'' played out by breakfast cereal mascots. The comic disappeared from the internet without warning some time in mid-late 2013, probably due to copyright/trademark infringement concerns, then reappeared on a [[http://breakfastofthegods.com/ dedicated site]]. As of the end of January, 2017, it's still available as [[http://www.indyplanet.com/front/?product=56624 a print-on-demand book containing all three volumes]] however, the smaller format (standard paperback size) has a negative impact on the artwork, especially the splash pages.

The Honey Nut Cheerios Bee's corpse washes up on a beach and all fingers point toward Count Chocula as the perpetrator. Snap, Crackle and Pop disappear shortly thereafter, and Cap'n Crunch and Tony the Tiger investigate. What eventually ensues is an all-out war for the fate of Cerealia, waged between the heroic defenders of everyone's balanced breakfast and the villainous denizens of the night [[spoiler:as well as their extraterrestrial allies, the dreaded Soggies]].
