Apparently, you get a brother-sister duo of "[[InsistentTerminology Herculean]]" foxes carrying the torch of their movie-star father while said father faces his own problems in the afterlife.

Jack and Alice Fossker are silver foxes living in the "island metropolis" of Rock City, living out normal lives as a book-store manager and gym teacher, respectively, by day, and [[TheyFightCrime combating the city's underworld by night.]] Assisting them is their informant, [[LizardFolk Johnny]] [[NonIndicativeName Crowe]], a former snoop-for-hire who decided to serve the Fosskers exclusively [[IOweYouMyLife after they saved his life.]]

Meanwhile, Charlie Fossker and his wife Angelique have moved on to the Land of the Dead, where the former learns the hard way that trying to play the hero doesn't work out well after death.

Needs a CharacterSheet.

@@This work contains examples of the following tropes:@@

*AxCrazy: Gryphon, whenever he isn't FauxAffablyEvil.
*ActionGirl: Alice.
*AllThereInTheManual: Before the characters' backstories were implemented into the plot, they could be viewed in Dukurow's character sheets.
*AnachronismStew: [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness Before the timeline was set in stone]], Uptown Funk was played on a jukebox in one early story. Yes, Uptown Funk on a ''jukebox''.
*Animesque: [[WordOfGod The combat in the series is heavily influenced by anime and video games.]]
*ArtEvolution: [[WordOfGod Dukurow himself]] agrees that the later chapters in the Initial Twelve are much better.
*BackFromTheDead: Gryphon, [[AxCrazy and]] [[SerialKiller not]] [[FamilyUnfriendlyViolence for the]] [[FauxAffablyEvil better.]]
*BadassLongcoat: Played with. Jack wears a ''pea coat'' whenever he goes out. Charlie, however, has an actual red trenchcoat from when he was the star of a spy film trilogy, and Gryphon seems to like the trope, too.
*BareYourMidriff: Alice's "fighting clothes" include a sleeveless denim vest and [[{{Sarashi}} chest wrap.]] Jack and Crowe secretly joke about this choice.
*BoundAndGagged: Crowe before the Fossker siblings save him.
*ClassyCravat: Jack wears an ascot while at Reed's Reads.
*EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Shorter chapters, inconsistent formatting, no concrete setting as far as time period, worse storytelling and dialogue...
*ShoutOut: Mainly to video games.
