So far Grant
is 63 pages long, with extremely irregular updates
(sometimes going many months between new pages), but has already accumulated a modest fandom. It can be read from the first page here and also here
. All NSFW pages require site membership and enabling of mature content to view, so this page may have links to NSFW content if you've already got an account
. However, overall, Grant
is not a porn work, and is more R-rated.
This webcomic provides examples of:
- Ambiguously Bi/Amazingly Embarrassing Parent: Grant's dad Bert, much to Grant's embarrassment. After Grant's parents figure out that Grant and Randy are a couple:
Grant: "Thanks, Dad."
Grant: "Dad! What the hell?!"
Bert: "Come on, I'm just curious. Wanna make sure he's keeping my boy satisfied and all."
Grant: "Dad, we're not talking about this!"
Bert: "Aww, but we're buds aren't we? You can tell me!"
- Author Appeal: And how!
- Bad Ass: After Grant┤s loss his inner rage is increasing in the latest chapters, showing a complete different Grant
- The Bear: Grant and Randy are certainly on their way to becoming this. Modern-day Grant certainly qualifies, and Grant's dad Bert, while not certainly bi, has the body type. But there is hardly a Captain Ger Bear work in existence that doesn't have bearish guys.
- Beast and Beauty: Grant in his wolf form with Randy.
- Belly Dancer / Dancing With Myself: Grant in one special animation made by its creator and he thinks nobody is watching but he dances very well
- Big Beautiful Man: A few examples, but especially Grant in his wolf form. One reader commented that wolf Grant's stomach was "imminently zerbertable". Also, Grant's adoptive dad.
- Bigger Is Better in Bed:
Wolf Grant: "Well then, I should! It's a bit bigger now, you know."
- BlasÚ Boast: Grant's nowhere near strong enough to yank a metal lock right off a door. All he did was wiggle it and the piece of junk fell apart. He wiggled it pretty hard.
- The Cameo: Generally, if someone has drawn fanart of Grant, they may expect a cameo of their own character in one of the future pages. There have been a few cameos already.
- Carnivore Confusion: When Grant realizes for the first time how much he starves for human flesh, he first resolves to find a random guy and kill him. But it doesn't turn out that way. The man initiates a sexual encounter, and Grant serendipitously learns that he can satisfy the Horror Hunger simply by having oral contact with human skin for an extended period.
- Chained to a Bed: Well, to a chair, but the end of the How We Got Here segment of the story arrives to reveal that Grant has been telling Randy this story while Randy has been tied up. Randy is expecting this as a prelude to sex, but the real reason he was tied up was so that Grant can reveal himself as a werewolf without Randy running away.
- Cluster F-Bomb: The moment after Grant reveals to Randy that he's a Werewolf:
Randy: "FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK"
Wolf Grant: "Are you done?"
Randy: "What the.. What the fuck!?"
- Explicit Content: Well, almost. Though this comic is most decidedly Not Safe for Work, it tends to avoid explicit depictions of sex or Male Frontal Nudity. It is more R-rated than NC-17-rated.
- Foster Kid: Grant he is curiously adopted when he is almost 14 years old
- Friendly Neighborhood Werewolf: Emphasis on friendly.
- Gilligan Cut: After Grant finishes telling Randy How We Got Here:
Wolf Grant: "So I'm still your boyfriend?"
Randy: "Look, Grant. I'm gonna need some time. This is kind of a big deal. You can't expect me to just.."
(Scene switches to 11:34 with Grant and Randy in bed having sex.)
Wolf Grant: "Hoo.. ow."
"Well yeah.. but I'm supposed to be the monster
- Good Parents/Happily Adopted: Grant has a great relationship with his adoptive parents, even if his dad does pry a bit. He's even shown as crying a bit when he moves out, and refuses to remove his silver earring because he got his ear pierced alongside his dad.
- Gym Bunny: Technically, Grant is a man cruising the gym for men to fuck.
- Heteronormative Crusader: Randy's gay life annoys his fussy dad, who considers it a concession that he (sort of) tolerates Randy being gay.
- Homoerotic Subtext: About as blatant as you can get.
- Horror Hunger: Grant comes to realize he is starving for human flesh. But before he gets a chance to kill and eat a man in a bathroom, the man interprets Grant's approach as cruising for sex. Grant learns that his werewolf hunger can be satisfied through extended oral contact with a human's skin, without needing to kill them.
- How We Got Here: The entire first part of the comic is Grant narrating his early life. Randy suddenly leaps in as a co-narrator when he enters the story.
- It Always Rains at Funerals: Averted during Randy's funeral, Grant even mentions "The bright summer sky, betrayed us as we wept over your grave, as if it didn't give a shit that you were gone
- It's Always Sunny at Funerals: played straight with Grant calling this a betrayal in the page 42 chapter
- LGBT Romance: Grant meets Randy, and they fall in love and move in together. Regular sex means Grant has plenty of opportunity to feed, and no longer needs to hunt for 'victims'.
- Manly Gay/Leather Man: Modern-day Grant. Also Bent.
- Manly Tears: Both Grant and Bert have Tearful Smiles as Grant moves out. Neither looks any the less manly.
- Mate or Die: Inverted; Grant must mate or kill. Specifically, what is required is oral contact with skin, but that usually leads to sex.
- Meaningful Name: Randy is...randy.
- Mugging the Monster: Grant gets mugged, and eventually stabbed. However, one of the muggers gets a broken nose in the scuffle.
- Our Werewolves Are Different: The titular Grant is unlike ordinary werewolves in that he has learned to satisfy his Horror Hunger without injuring his meal. Also Grant has the ability to transform into his werewolf form at will and half transform only parts of his body such as his arms, hands or chest.
- The Pornomancer: Since the simplest way for Grant to have extended oral contact with a human is to initiate a sexual encounter, Grant necessarily becomes this to satisfy his Horror Hunger so that he doesn't have to kill anybody.
- Power Limiter: Grant's plethora of silver piercings, meant to keep his lycanthropy locked inside.
- Real Men Wear Pink: When Grant and Randy go out on a date at a carnival, Randy wears a pink polo shirt.
- Salt and Pepper: White Grant paired with black Randy as a Rule of Sexy. Though this becomes inverted when Grant changes into his wolf form with his black fur that makes Randy the lighter one by comparison — more like Dark Chocolate And Milk Chocolate.
- Shirtless Scene: A lot of them.
- Shout-Out/Captain Ersatz: Randy's bald rich dad bears more than a passing resemblance to Uncle Phil.
- Straight Gay: Grant and Randy both as younger adults. Modern-day Grant is more Manly Gay though.
- Take a Third Option: Eat humans or starve. Or, as Grant discovers, loads of oral contact.
- The Unfavourite/Dating What Daddy Hates: Randy's dad is wealthy, well-educated and successful in life. His belief that he knows the single path to success, and his very forceful assertation of this upon his children has created friction between Randy and his father. Randy has deliberately Dated What Daddy Hates in the past, refusing to follow his father's line of work, and initially choosing a homosexual lifestyle and unsavory partners as a form of rebellion against his father. As it turned out, Randy actually was gay, since he enjoyed men so much and discovered that he wasn't interested in women.
- Unkempt Beauty: Grant looks like he doesn't even own a comb. And he looks amazing.
