[[caption-width:300:A little different from your standard [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent Werewolf]].]]

''Bibliography'' was a Manga-inspired {{webcomic}} by Cody Shaw, a.k.a. Elagune, about a bookworm with his head firmly out of the clouds named Benjamin Hewitt who takes a different turn down an alley one night. What happens next will change his view of the world - probably forever.

A relatively young webcomic, it [[OrphanedSeries stopped updating one day and eventually disappeared]].
----
!!Tropes used include:
* ActionGirl: Eve.
* AllMythsAreTrue: Pretty much. Werewolves, vampires, angels.
** In fact, it's more or less explained in that way:
-->'''Eve:''' You know of things like werewolves and vampires, right? They're superstition and monster based on stories people used to tell. But all stories are based on fact.
* AncestralWeapon: The Bibliography itself was given to Ben by his uncle. It may also have come from his parents.
* AnimeHair
* ArrogantKungFuGuy: Terry, basically.
* ArtEvolution
* BadassBookworm: Ben is a bookworm. In a {{Shonen}} inspired comic, this is pretty much granted.
* BreakingTheFourthWall:
-->'''Ben:''' Why am I so far off-panel?
* CallingYourAttacks
* CoolSword: Ocular Blade. Ben's is better, though.
* CurseCutShort: Ben gets cut off by Eve.
-->'''Ben:''' What the fu--
-->'''Eve:''' A real superhero!
** Gloria also cuts herself off.
---> '''Mr.Belmont:'''But don't worry, Ben, my assistant, Gloria will help
---> '''Gloria:''''WHAM' Hey old man, i'm not going to put up with your sh-
* CuteLittleFangs: Eve has these. She's also kinda the canine equivalent of a CatGirl, her personality seeming modeled on that of a playful puppy.
* DisabilitySuperpower: Users of the Occular Codex must sacrifice their eyes to gain power.
** Not limited to the Occular Codex, as other codexes are also known to receive disabilities in order to gain power. [[http://gaijinmanga.com/bibliography/main.php?ch=1&pg=16 For example]], Pages of The Holy Codex (aka Angels) need to pray all the time and are forced into being Lawful.
* DramaticIrony: With Roy's little sister. When Tony showed up to tell his parents what had happened, she comes up and babbles about how excited she is that Roy's gonna teach her how to use a paintbrush.
* DumbBlonde: [[http://bibliography.gaijinmanga.com/extras.php?id=6 here]] although I get the first mistake, I mean, her birthday comes only once every four years.
* ExtranormalInstitute: The Belmont House is this, sorta.
* EyeBeams: Anthony's Lensflash.
* FantasticCatholicism
* FiveManBand:
--> TheHero- Ben
--> TheLancer/ Mentor- Tony
--> TheSmartGuy/ TeamMom- Satomi
--> TheBigGuy- Raoul
--> TheChick/ CoolBigSis (big eater variety)/ TheTeamPet- Eve
* FlatWhat: Gloria after learning of Ben's arson in chapter 4.
* HammerSpace: [[http://bibliography.gaijinmanga.com/extras.php?id=6 here]].
* HighClassGlass: Thornton has one on.
* ImprobableWeaponUser: [[http://gaijinmanga.com/bibliography/main.php?ch=11&pg=13#image Irons.]]
* InvisibleToNormals: Any aspect of a page's appearance that's out of the ordinary (angel and harpy wings, Tony's floating eyeballs, Raoul's horns) can't be seen by someone who hasn't been awakened.
* LargeHam "TASTE MY FIST OF JUSTICE!!"
* MaleGaze: Happens after two characters leave after some sprinklers activate. Eve is wearing a thin white shirt...
-->'''Eve:''' L-Look! I didn't know it was going to be this wet, okay?
* ManicPixieDreamGirl: Eve to Ben.
* {{Masquerade}}: of the InvisibleToNormals variety: people usually do not see the [[AllMythsAreTrue weird]] world around them, but certain conditions can allow them to be permanently 'awakened'.
* MeaningfulName. Eve Wolfgang. Guess what kind of mythical monster she is.
** And one of the kids at the Belmont House, a winged humanoid, is name Micheal.
** When Ben's friend Raoul Torres awakens, he becomes a Minotaur.
* MegaManning: The eponymous book, Ben's "Whitebox Weapon" can recreate any spell-- from any codex-- that hits it, though it can only copy the basic form of the spell.
* MegatonPunch: Raoul does this the first time he hits someone after becoming a minotaur.
* MsExposition: Eve. It's lampshaded in chapter 10.
* MysteriousParent: Ben's dad, natch.
* NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished: Instead of allowing his best friend Roy to going blind, Tony awakened him and let him join the All-Seeing Codex, who all have eye-based powers. Only Roy gets injected with [[PsychoSerum ink]] descends, and is killed, Tony losing a best friend in the process.
* NoSenseOfDirection: Minotaurs of the Cretan codex give up their ability to navigate (i.e., the whole world becomes a labyrinth for them) in exchange for SuperStrength. Notably, Raoul somehow moves from a sidewalk to a windowsill.
* OurWerewolvesAreDifferent
* PettingZooPeople: Some of the kids at the Belmont house.
* PowersAsPrograms
* PsychoSerum: Ink. Just Ink. Remember the abyssal in the first chapter? He was pumped full of the stuff. [[spoiler:Against his will by the Ink runners he was spying upon.]]
* PungeonMaster: Raoul and his Cattle-based puns after becoming a minotaur.
* PunnyName: Jacques of the Lantern and Jackie Frost.
* SavvyGuyEnergeticGirl: Ben and Eve
* SeriesHiatus / LeftHanging: Unfortunately, due to some sticky legal problems (and author inexperience up to a point), this series is no longer updating. The explanation of the whole mess cane be found [[http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showpost.php?p=12258839&postcount=945 here]] and [[http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showpost.php?p=12821395&postcount=958 here ]]
* SheIsNotMyGirlfriend: Ben says this about Even when confronted by his friends about not really being around. This is odd considering that much of the time Ben spends with Eve (his only contact in the awakened world) is spent doing things that many would attribute to a dating couple.
** Although, he is honestly about it and seems to have no deeper feelings [[HeterosexualLifePartners for her besides friendship and gratitude]]. Which would be... refreshing, in this kind of setting..
* ShoutOut: Many: Franchise/{{Pokemon}}, Manga/OnePiece, Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda, [[http://gaijinmanga.com/bibliography/main.php?ch=1&pg=2 Evrae]] from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'', [[http://gaijinmanga.com/bibliography/main.php?ch=6&pg=8 Kamina]] from TengenToppaGurrenLagann, [[http://gaijinmanga.com/bibliography/main.php?ch=9&pg=17 Starcraft]], [[http://bibliography.gaijinmanga.com/main.php?ch=8&pg=19#image Tails]] from Sonic the Hedgehog, and [[http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b358/KnightOfLodis/17-2.png Jacob]] from DominicDeegan,.
* ShownTheirWork: Averted TelepathicSprinklers and showed that water makes grease fires worse.
* StealthPun: Jacques of the Lantern is part of the Candle Codex. He's JustForFun/CandleJack. Good thing he's only a myth. Wait, isn't this comic ''based'' on myt-
* SuperpowerLottery: {{Word of God}} says that yes, some codices are flat-out more powerful, but a page is likely to be matched with a codex whose powers they will enjoy most, regardless of strength. Recently, it was revealed that there are five "High" Codex Chapters in Tiltstone, which basically means that they have more members than the others.
* SwissArmyWeapon: It seems the Bibliography could eventually be one.
* TalkingIsAFreeAction: Taken to sometimes near-parody extremes. An impromptu autograph session is ''also'' a free action for all involved.
** Curiously averted in the (very wordy) explanation segments of the {{Masquerade}}: any character involved are shown doing things other than looking at each other while not moving.
* ThemeNaming: Codices, Pages, Chapters, Librarians, the eponymous Bibliography - everything comes back to books in a way.
* ThrowTheBookAtThem: Bibliography is a floating encyclopedia that Ben can telikinetically control. This attack was inevitable, and was quickly dubbed the Bibliobonk. Others call it the Bookmerang.
* UnsoundEffect: [[http://i947.photobucket.com/albums/ad317/Bibliography/03-3.png Punch! Choke! Chokeslam!]]
** Also, [[http://gaijinmanga.com/bibliography/main.php?ch=10&pg=3#image Butch!]]
* WeirdnessCensor: In general, being unawakened. There are also [[strike:artifacts]] relics that prevent unawakened people from coming within range of certain places.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: In conception, Tony was the main character, and his third and fourth eyes were ghosts. Ben was his sidekick, and an angel. TheyFightCrime
* WolverineClaws: Eve's Warg Wave.
* YearsTooEarly: [[http://gaijinmanga.com/bibliography/main.php?ch=9&pg=11#image Here]]. This ''is'' a shonen inspired webcomic. It was inevitable, really.
* ZettaiRyouiki- Eve, see image above.
