* UsefulNotes/TheAmericanCivilWar: Randomly referenced in a joke story arc before the comic succumbed to CerebusSyndrome.



* [[BloodyHilarious Bloody Hillarious]]/[[GallowsHumor Gallows Humor]]: Early comics featuring Gore (appropriately) often involved things like missing body parts and dead bodies being left on the couch.

* PantyThief: Cowkitty's sidekick, Bunny Steve. Given that Dan has admitted to being heavily influenced by Rumiko Takahashi, it's likely Steve is an {{Expy}} of [[RanmaOneHalf Happosai]].

* ChrisCarterEffect: Partially due to the comic being [[OrphanedSeries orphaned]], a lot of plot points were never resolved or explained. Indeed, the last twenty or so comics give a lot of answes that actually just result in a lot more questions. Chief among them:
** Why is Gore so strong, and who is this mysterious individual he and Tess speak of? Is that the vampire that created him? And why does he look so different than all of the other vampires?
*** Actually, Gore himself claims it's [[spoiler: Lillith; in answer to Tess's question, his speech bubble contains the Hebrew letters TYLYL, and Hebrew is read right to left, giving us Lylyt, the archaic form of Lillith. ]]
** What is the nature of Evil Dan's powers? It's said to be somehow different from Good Dan's, and near the end it's [[spoiler:sort of implied that he's actually channeling source energy from Seth]], but nothing is clearly established. For that matter, [[WhatHappenedToTheMouse whatever happened to Evil Dan and Electric Pixie]]?
** How did Dan come back to life? Lillith suggests that he may be [[spoiler: the new Christ]], but we don't get a definitive answer before the comic was abruptly dropped.

An old webcomic, now defunct, written by Aaron Sacharow and Dan Jaaren of [=ClanBOB=] fame. It depicts the adventures of Dan Jaaren, as he attempts to live his life in the midst of supernatural events and extraordinary circumstances. Fortunately, this is not difficult, because Dan is (a) a conduit, more powerful than any earthly being, channeling the power of the gods, and (b) a moron.

* AllThereInTheManual: A lot of characters are never properly introduced into the story, especially when all the Bobs show up. Since they are all actual members of the ClanBOB community, the comic sort of assumes you already know who they are.

* OrphanedSeries: When it was orphaned, it almost broke up [=ClanBOB=] permanently, because the site it and all the other clanBOB material was hosted on was lost along with it.
