Added DiffLines:

Currently, there is a Kickstarter going on for the collected comic. It can be found [[https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/kcgreen/he-is-a-good-boy-the-collected-crange/description here]]

Added DiffLines:

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Crange‘s CharacterDevelopment sees him shift into this role over the course of the comic. For all of his faults (and there are many), he has a couple of moments of genuine kindness and compassion that have the effect of keeping us in his corner despite his basest behaviors.
** After talking to the lumberjack that killed his tree and [[HeelRealization realizing he was kind of a terrible person to his de facto parental figure]], Crange has a full-on emotional breakdown in “Crange Stops a Robbery.”
** When he meets the ghost responsible for turning his wank session into a nightmare in “Crange Is Horny,” after the initial shock of the situation wears off, Crange gives a solid go at talking it out with his attacker, though the ghost is even more embarrassed by the idea of speaking about his repressed urges than Crange is.
** Toward the end of the comic, once he finds out about [[spoiler: the Emersons’ plan to use the Crange we’ve been following throughout to start another cycle]], Crange tells his bartender that [[spoiler: he’s the only version of Emerson that he’ll forgive, since they were the only one that actually cared about him.]]

Added DiffLines:

** In "Crange and the Ants", the alt-text and visuals reference the ''Music/LemonDemon'' song "Spiral of Ants", from the album "Spirit Phone".


Somewhere in an anthropomorphic society of insects, rocks and other creatures known as Bugworld lives Crange, an acorn with a drinking problem, a lack of morals, and no interest in moving forward with his life. After losing the tree that served as his parental figure and home, Crange’s life takes a turn for the weird, getting into situations ranging from run-ins with bug werewolves and murderous “artists” to kidnappings by thieves and making deals with the Devil.

''He Is A Good Boy'' is a webcomic by Creator/KCGreen (who previously created ''Webcomic/{{Gunshow}}'' and concurrently writes ''Webcomic/{{Back}}'' with fellow artist [[Webcomic/{{Nedroid}} Anthony Clark]]). Running from 2015 until 2019, ''HIAGB'' can be found [[http://hiagb.com here]]. Be warned: the copious gore and some of the humor regularly makes it NotSafeForWork.

Devil -- and as it turns out, there's more to those isolated incidents (and Crange himself) than it seems.
