Webcomic / Ink Proof Cannon

Ink Proof Cannon is an anthology webcomic updating Monday to Friday. It features a mixture of genres, from drama to comedy, all with a science-fiction, fantasy or horror spin on them. The comic is the brainchild of writer/artist Zoe Kirk-Robinson, creator of The Life of Nob T. Mouse and co-creator of All Over The House.

The stories currently running on Ink Proof Cannon are:

  • Bounty Bunny: In the future, mutants will hunt down their creator and try to sue him in a class action suit.
  • Dave Wetherby and the Devil's Accountants: A man nearing retirement discovers his greatest rival is Satan himself.
  • Dudes With Swords: Four nerds can't tell the difference between the real world and the live action roleplaying game they adore so much.
  • Sol Invictus: In the far future, four species of human are locked in perpetual conflict.
  • The Webcomicer: A woman shot in a bank robbery discovers she can change reality by drawing it.

Future stories mentioned as pending on Ink Proof Cannon are:

  • The Arse Faced Killer: In a post-apocalyptic future, survivors are being hunted down by a badly-scarred man.
  • Time Freaks: Three convicts escape from prison in a time-travelling bathtub.
  • The Unintelligibles: A duck and a monkey fight crime.

Tropes Associated With Ink Proof Cannon

  • Action Girl: Natalia Jorovich, the titular "Bounty Bunny", and reality warper Sunday Jones.
  • Action Prologue: Bounty Bunny opens with an assault on a space station because the people running it won't let mutants dock there.
  • Applied Phlebotinum: The mutagen in Bounty Bunny.
  • Crapsack World: Post-apocalyptic earth in The Arse Faced Killer sounds like this. The mutants in Bounty Bunny also see their lives this way.
  • Furry Comic: The mutants in Bounty Bunny are human-animal hybrids.
  • It Runs on Nonsensoleum: A girl called Sunday can change reality by uploading comics to the Internet! Three convicted criminals escape prison by turning a bathtub into a time machine! Admittedly these are slightly more normal ideas than some of Kirk-Robinson's other work.

  • Reality Warper: Sunday Jones, who changes reality by making web comics about it.
  • Recycled IN SPACE!: Sol Invictus features Goth- and Roman-inspired civilisations.
