The Greening Wars is webcomic on Drunk Duck that incorporates some PostApocalyptic tropes along with with scifi, comedy and drama to produce a unique story. The comic begins with recap of World War III after the second page of the comic gives some quotes about the future of the planet from three well established individuals, after the WWIII summary we meet our first main character who happens to be a handicapped ex-military woman after that we get some main cast introductions and then get a quick look at an organization called "The Greening" who are basically run by a GodEmperor playing MadScientist with the genetic structure of everything from humans to animals, and possibly plants.

The comic can be found [[http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/The_Greening_Wars/ here]]. It updates twice a week, Tuesdays and Fridays.

!!Tropes featured so far in The Greening War:

* AfterTheEnd: Set after WorldWarIII, which involved both the release of ThePlague and the conversion of southern Europe into a radioactive ForbiddenZone known as "[[SicklyGreenGlow the glow]]".
* ArtEvolution: Compare ''[[http:///www.theduckwebcomics.com/The_Greening_Wars/5313251/ this page]]''to ''[[http:///www.theduckwebcomics.com/The_Greening_Wars/5375661/ this one]]''
%%* BadassNormal: Hatchet.
* BalefulPolymorph: The Greening uses dissenters as test subjects for experimental splicings.
%%* CreepyGood: Hatchet.
* ChinaTakesOverTheWorld: Africa tries to.
* EvilutionaryBiologist: One of the Greening's two [[PlanetOfHats hats]].
%%* FunnyAnimal: Their other hat.
%%* GodEmperor: Gaia.
* HeinzHybrid: Not all Greening members are based on a single animal species. Cassie was a prototype with so many different genes spliced into her it's hard to identify the sources; and "nighthawks" are a mix of lemur, kinkajou, and leopard, with eyes based on a blend of owl, hawk, and mantis shrimp.
* HulkSpeak: The Lanterns. Arc is the only one that doesn't do this, convenient since he's in the main cast.
* ISeeDeadPeople: Cassie can actually see the poltergeist mentioned below, to the ghost's apparent shock.
* KillerRabbit: Towns near the glow have [[http:///www.theduckwebcomics.com/The_Greening_Wars/5336378/ posters]] warning about these.
-->'''Hatchet:''' Relax, mermaid. Poster exaggerates to scare stupid tourists. Carnivorous rabbit prefers insects. [[BaitAndSwitchComment Now giant rats, THEY eat hand.]]
* LegoGenetics: The Greening's main weapon.
* MadScientist: The evil plague-maker in the prologue is the biggest example, but the modern Greening is full of them.
* MeaningfulName:
** Arc, hinted at with the statement that the only thing he can remember from before his mind got rewired is the acronym A.R.C. The kicker is that he has no idea what it stands for. It doubles as a reference to his Lantern [[ShockAndAwe electrical powers]].
** "Greening Lantern" has its own [[ShoutOut interesting]] [[GreenLantern implications]]...
* MixAndMatchCritters: Gaia (her physical body, at least) is composed of a bizarre assemblage of animals fused together, including at least one exposed brain, and several different heads and voices.
* NeverFoundTheBody: Paxia's body was identified via DNA evidence, and given [[LegoGenetics her line of work...]] Underlined by the accompanying image: [[spoiler:Paxia walking away from a burning building to a waiting helicopter]].
* OurGhostsAreDifferent: The lab that Mander and Stone are restoring is home to an angry, Greening-hating {{poltergeist}}. He doesn't seem to mind the UCM sabotage team, though... yet.
* ShockAndAwe: Greening lanterns, as a side effect of their Technopath abilities.
%%* SymbolSwearing
* SyntheticPlague: The one in the prologue is an interesting example. The warlord who had the viruses created wanted them to be ''disabling but non-lethal'', to allow relatively bloodless conquests of crippled armies. Unfortunately, the MadScientist he hired to make the plagues believed that crippling the enemy wasn't enough, and when he insisted "no genocide", she found a way to make the viruses passably harmless when tested alone but be lethal in combination.
* {{Technopath}}:
** The lanterns are this plus a HiveMind-based communications network, plus they double as telepresence devices for Gaia. In an interesting twist, they are almost mindless.
** Arc came close to having the best of both worlds, since the got the Lantern powers, but kept his mind due to the brain wipe being botched. He did [[AmnesiacHero lose his memories]], though.
-->'''Arc:''' The upside? [[MundaneUtility Never having to pay for batteries again]], and [[BrainComputerInterface built-in wifi]]. [[GoodNewsBadNews The downside]]? [[BalefulPolymorph The looks of an electric ferret]] and [[IdentityAmnesia no memory of anything so simple as my own name]].
* ThoseTwoGuys: Mander and Stone.
* TronLines: The lanterns' Lorenzini Lines.
* WasOnceAMan: Those Greening {{Funny Animal}}s? They're ''all'' normal people who've had extra stuff "spliced" into their genome.
