Apparently, you get a brother-sister duo of "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 combating the city's underworld by night. Assisting them is their informant, Johnny Crowe, a former snoop-for-hire who decided to serve the Fosskers exclusively 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.
Rock City Chronicles is the brainchild of Dukurow of DeviantArt, and has been running since November 2014. It currently has two story arcs: The Initial Twelve, which jumps between time periods and planes of existence while setting up future events, and The Gryphon's Vengeful Flight, an ongoing arc focusing on Jack and Alice's efforts to stop a Herculean Serial Killer.
Needs a Character Sheet.
This work contains examples of the following tropes:
- Ax-Crazy: Gryphon, whenever he isn't Faux Affably Evil.
- Action Girl: Alice.
- All There in the Manual: Before the characters' backstories were implemented into the plot, they could be viewed in Dukurow's character sheets.
- Anachronism Stew: 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: The combat in the series is heavily influenced by anime and video games.
- Art Evolution: Dukurow himself agrees that the later chapters in the Initial Twelve are much better.
- Back from the Dead: Gryphon, and not for the better.
- Badass Longcoat: 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.
- Bare Your Midriff: Alice's "fighting clothes" include a sleeveless denim vest and chest wrap. Jack and Crowe secretly joke about this choice.
- Bound and Gagged: Crowe before the Fossker siblings save him.
- Classy Cravat: Jack wears an ascot while at Reed's Reads.
- Early Installment Weirdness: Shorter chapters, inconsistent formatting, no concrete setting as far as time period, worse storytelling and dialogue...
- Shout-Out: Mainly to video games.
