KC, the beleaguered creator.Gunshow
is a web comic made by KC Green. Starting off as a small gag a day strip, the jokes became more complicated over time. Over time it has developed a spanning continuity, with some recurring characters such as the Anime Club
(who now have their own page!
), The Rabbits and The Hairy Criminal
. There is also Graveyard Quest, a story arc that has it's own page.
However it still remains a largely a gag a day comic, and knowing the continuity is largely more a Mythology Gag
than something needed to understand the comic.
The comic was discontinued Christmas of 2014. It remains to be seen if Green will be starting another project.
This webcomic provides examples of:
- All There in the Manual: Between KC's Twitter page and Midnite Surprise blog sketches, he'll drop little tidbits about the cast; such as revealing The Rabbits' names as Tom and Paul.
- Alternative Rock: If you're not sure, then it's alternative.
- Always Someone Better: Great Frog is this to Cool Frog.
- Art Evolution: A couple years will do that.
- Affectionate Parody: Skylar Popcollar, and the Hairy Criminal's Tales From The Creep.
- Author Appeal: Mocked in "Piss World", where the GM of a tabletop RPG with a piss fetish keeps inserting piss-related nonsense into his game, much to the annoyance of the other two.
- Big Red Devil: Satan, and later, Ima.
- Black Comedy
- Bland-Name Product: Googos Maps.
- Breakout Character: The Anime Club started as a one-off joke and grew into a rather large story and one of the more visible cast members in the entire lineup.
- Brick Joke: Comic 319 explains why the rabbit got killed in 111
- Body Horror:
- Cast of Snowflakes
- Celestial Bureaucracy
- Cloud Cuckoolander: Ima. Actually, lots of people, but she stands out since she's a recurring character.
- Continuity Creep: More recent comics usually build on past comics, rather then the one off jokes the comic started with. The biggest example is the office arc, where all the office characters (Ima, Satan, etc...) and almost all the other characters (minus the Anime Club) work in the office owned by one of the rabbits, who funded the company with the bag of carrots the other rabbit's been trying to steal from him.
