[[caption-width-right:279:It begins...]]

Written by Taylor Carilli, ''[[http://monsterkind.enenkay.com/ Monsterkind]]'' is a story about humans and monsters living in a city ruled by segregation and inequality. Monsters are treated as second class citizens, and are not allowed in certain areas of the city-- especially those inhabited by wealthier humans.

Wallace Foster is a human who has just been transferred into District C of Fairway City. He has never lived among monsters until now, but he's quickly realizing that they aren't as bad as everyone has made them out to be.

Change and progression have never come easy in this backwards city, but perhaps Wallace can help close the gap between human and monsterkind and bring the two together in harmony. He'll at least try.

!!This webcomic provides examples of:
* {{Adorkable}}: Wallace, definitely. Roy also applies.
* AlliterativeName: Kip Kaizer and Molly Monday. If we're counting businesses/places, there's Cuddy's Cafe.
* AmbiguousGender: Louise is hard to identify as either male or female, and is referred to as "they/them" by the author, implying that the character is genderqueer.
* AmbiguouslyHuman: Some monsters definitely look monstrous, while some could pass as human with no problems. Ben is one example of such a monster.
* ArtEvolution: Compare chapter one's cover (pictured above) with the cover of chapter [[http://monsterkind.enenkay.com/comic/136 three]].
* BigRedDevil: There is an as-yet unnamed background monster with red skin and huge horns, and BlackEyesOfEvil. He doesn't appear to actually be anywhere close to evil, though his design is obviously meant to evoke this trope.
* CuteMonsterGirl: Molly. Kip and Roy are [[SpearCounterpart Cute Monster Guys]].
* EmbarrassingNickname: Kip doesn't appreciate the nickname 'Kipster'.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: Charlie's first line of dialogue is "Who the HELL are you?!" directed at Wallace, followed by screaming at his roommate to shut up when they try to explain, and then [[spoiler: assaulting Wallace while threatening to kill him]]. This is setting up to be a SubvertedTrope, however, as the next time we see Charlie he's tending to flowers with his hair pulled back with a headband, is suffering from flashbacks and expresses ''concern'' for Wallace. At the very least things are more complicated than him being "the one violent asshole monster".
* EvenTheGuysWantHim:
--> '''Cuddy:''' ''Kip, you attract business... and girls. Lots of girls. And dudes.''
* FantasticRacism: The main issue of the comic.
* FishOutOfWater: Wallace is a human who has never even ''seen'' a monster his entire life, and now he's living in a monsters-only apartment complex.
* GenkiGirl: Molly has shades of this.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Louise is very blunt with Wallace, and threatens to snap him in half if he breaks their trust... but they are still willing to invite him into their home, and they even make him tea. [[spoiler: And they also stop their roommate from potentially beating Wallace to death]].
* {{Keet}}: Roy G. Biv, massively so.
* {{Meganekko}}: Molly.
* MotorMouth: Biv's EstablishingCharacterMoment is a page that is literally [[http://monsterkind.enenkay.com/comic/9 half speech bubbles]].
* PrecisionFStrike: "Just stay away from us you piece of '''shit'''!!" Until this moment, the language in the comic had been fairly tame. This is the moment when you realize that maybe [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids this cartoony, brightly-colored comic isn't for kids]].
* PunnyName: Roy G. Biv. Who is a [[RainbowMotif rainbow-themed]] monster.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Ben the apartment manager. He chastises Kip for his treatment of Wallace and explains why it was ''not'' okay.
* ReptilesAreAbhorrent: Charlie has a lizard tail, spikes, and scales on his skin, and is easily the most abrasive monster met. While the other monsters Wallace tries to interact with on his first day on the job merely slam the door in his face, Charlie [[spoiler: slams him into the coffee table hard enough to draw blood and screams death threats while Louise has to physically restrain him]].
* StealthPun: Molly has four eyes, both literally and [[{{Meganekko}} figuratively]].
** Kip is confirmed by WordOfGod to be an ice monster, and his reception of Wallace is initially very... [[http://monsterkind.enenkay.com/comic/29 cold]].
* TokenHuman: Wallace is, so far, the only named, ''confirmed'' human in the comic. Cuddy and Kate ''may'' be human, but it is likely that one or both of them are human-looking monsters.
** Averted, as Cuddy and Kate have now been confirmed to be humans via [[AllThereInTheManual their official character profiles]].
* WideEyedIdealist: Wallace, so much so that it borders on TooDumbToLive. He doesn't realize until Louise spells it out for him that monsters react adversely to him because he's human, and they then have to elaborate that being human gives him rights that monsters don't have. He also reacts to Charlie's paranoid freak-out by ''smiling and going for a handshake''. [[spoiler: Charlie then slams his head into the coffee table]].
* YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre: Molly gives Kip a quick pep talk that pretty much boils down to this.
