Has sadly been [[OrphanedSeries discontinued]], but its partial "revamp"/spiritual successor ''GATEKEEPER'' can be read [[http://gatekeepercomic.smackjeeves.com/comics/1710341/cover/ here]].

To avoid confusion, on this wiki page, the Doctor will not be referred to by his real name ([[spoiler:Mr. Friday]]) but by his given alias. Likewise, the ProfessionalKiller [[spoiler:persona of Mr. Porter]] will be refered to as Mr. Friday.

The comic is ongoing, updating on a fairly regular basis. At the moment, eight chapters have been finished and Chapter 9 is under way. It went through substantial ArtEvolution and hiruda has announced plans to redo the first chapter in acknowledgement of this. The genre could be described as three parts criminal fiction, two parts psychological thriller, one part science fiction, and one part SliceOfLife. It has a fast-paced plot, entertaining characters, and loads of visually pleasing official art. Also has a character list [[http://rps.smackjeeves.com/characters/ here]]. It has MultipleDemographicAppeal and NeedsMoreLove.

Added DiffLines:

* OrphanedSeries: Sadly, and with many questions left unanswered.

Added DiffLines:

* FanDisservice: The author [[http://rps.smackjeeves.com/comics/550298/057/ likes]] [[http://rps.smackjeeves.com/comics/576793/065/ this]] [[http://rps.smackjeeves.com/comics/715630/142/ trope]]. She usually [[LampshadedTrope lampshades]] the FanDisservice in her author comments. In fact, you'd be hard-pressed to find anything that could be considered legitimate {{Fanservice}} in this comic. The author seems to enjoy mocking the very idea of including such a thing.

Added DiffLines:

** By extension, [[BewareTheSillyOnes Jack Friday]], who was [[spoiler:able to go toe to toe with Andy]] on [[TraintopBattle top of a moving truck]]!


Added DiffLines:

* BewareTheSillyOnes: Jack Friday again! When he starts to act [[PsychopathicManchild silly]] and [[{{Adorkable}} dorky]], it's pretty easy to forget how effective he can be when it comes to killing.

Added DiffLines:

* DespairEventHorizon: [[spoiler:Thomas crossed his after Argent, the person he respected most in the world, [[BrokenPedestal betrayed and tried to kill him]].]] [[LampshadedTrope Lampshaded]] twice even, with the word "despair" actually used. Yikes.

Added DiffLines:

* WalkingSpoiler: [[spoiler: Jack Porter.]] Even his full ''[[UpToEleven name]]'' is a spoiler, if you squint. You'll not find a single instance of his name anywhere on this page outside of spoiler tags.
