Added DiffLines:

* Main/{{Hypocrite}}: Thomas Jefferson claimed to oppose slavery while being a slave owner himself.


* ArtisticLicenseReligion: The comic portrays Mithras as a [[ThePowerOfTheSun solar]] and fertility god with parallels to Jesus such as having a birthday on December 25th. However, most of what has been discovered about the Mithras [[MysteryCult Mystery Cults]] doesn't support such a claim. For example, Mithras probably wasn't a solar deity since Mithraism already had a sun god in the form of Sol Invictus. In addition, the Mithraists celebrated ''Sol Invictus'''s birthday on December 25th not Mithras'.

Added DiffLines:

* ReCut: One of the trade paperbacks, ''The MORE Than COMPLETE Action Philosophers!'', rearranges the order of the segments so they occur in chronological order to when the philosophers lived. So where as the original comic starts with Nietzsche, the ''The MORE Than COMPLETE Action Philosophers!'' starts with the Pre-Socratic Philosophers.

Added DiffLines:

* FatBastard: This trope is used several times as visual aid such as depicting the corruption of the Church of Denmark. This is notably [[AvertedTrope Averted]] with Thomas Aquinas, who is depicted as fat but not particularly evil or jerkish.


* TheManIsStickingItToTheMan: Major critique of Karl Marx's towards "capitalist" acceptance of minority rights, LGBTQ+, and feminism was not of benevolence, but for the sake of [[VillainWithGoodPublicity perpetuating its flawed system by appeasing the reformers]].
