Webcomic: What It Takes
What it Takes centers on Colbey, a martial artist who survives the end of the world. Armed with knowledge, experience and a machete, she is searching through what's left for a man named Peter Wolfe. You can read it here.

- After the End - The story takes place after civilization has fallen due to an unspecified event known as "the flip."
- Any One Can Die - And they probably will. As seen with Fortune Cookie, may he rest in peace.
- Bad Ass Preacher - Scot if there ever was one.
- Boom Head Shot - Subverted? Not? After all the shot went straight to the throat.
- Boyish Short Hair - Justified, as this is in part a matter of survival.
