True Magic is a humorous fantasy webcomic written and drawn by Aja and co-author :D. It follows the adventures of five residents of Homeville, who for certain reasons have gotten rather adept at using such unlikely weapons as guns and halberds as farm implements. With the villagers of Homeville constantly beleagured by nobles who come by to violently harass them, our heroes finally take it upon themselves to trek to the city of Hometropolis in an attempt to get the nobles to leave them alone.The original comic ran for about five years, but the entire thing has recently been rebooted with much-improved writing and art. You can start reading it here.The main characters, in no particular order:
Henson: The Big Guy, uses a scythe to slice potatoes. Often Mistaken for Gay or a girl, initially, due to not tying back his long hair.
Color-Coded Characters: The nobles wear blue and white; the peasants wear green and brown. It makes it pretty hard for the heroes to improvise a costume for Kiku, but pretty easy for the nobles to choose who to slaughter.
Comically Missing the Point: Jen reprimands Kiku for holding a sword in his mouth: "Oh, Kiku. Don't put that in your mouth! You don't know where it's been!"
Corrupt Church - The priests in the prologue are so corrupt, they even turn against their own god, Lucideus.
Close-Call Haircut - In the first run, Kiku accidentally pokes Joe's eye out. In the current run, a similar scene is shown, but instead, Joe is only given a Close-Call Haircut. He later gets another one to even up the other side.
Death by Origin Story - Done on a larger scale. Lucideus may or may not be dead, but his absence is why the priests were able to continue their abusiveness towards commoners, which led to the events of the comic.
Improbable Weapon User: Inverted in an amusing fashion with the protagonists. Instead of using farm implements as weapons, they use weapons as farm implements (and, when the situation calls for it, as weapons...).
Imagine Spot: Joe thinking of staying at the nightclub. He sees Bob as a magician, Kiku hunting rats, himself as a ladies' man, and Henson in a thong.
Wouldn't Hit a Girl - Played straight with one of the thugs who attacks the heroes ("My mom told me not to hit girls"), and inverted with the girl in question ("My mom told me not to hit boys who don't hit girls").
You Don't Want to Catch This - The villagers put spots made of jam on themselves to keep the nobles away while the heroes are gone, as well as a sign warning of "Peasant Pox."
