Webcomic / Alembic Grimoire

Go To

A webcomic by Nick Cobbs, found at its website and at the artist's Deviantart account.

Set After the End, it follows the adventures of Cassie, a bio-engineered fox girl, in way over her head on an operation that has gone violently south. With another mutant at her side, she's about to get to the heart of what the hell is going on.

...and that's about it so far, being something of a new comic.

Alembic Grimoire provides examples of:


  • After the End: Not too long ago there was a technological singularity that ratcheted up tech levels by centuries, often to Sufficiently Advanced Technology levels. Unfortunately, the bubble popped, leaving humanity a diverse and esoteric wreck amid the ruins of the glorious past.
  • All There in the Manual: Extensive planning has been done on the series before it started. Unfortunately, problems in real life have routinely delayed new material, so lots of what's been planned has yet to be seen in the comic itself.
  • And Man Grew Proud: The wreckage of the future is more the fallout of "hey, wouldn't it be cool if I had a catgirl for a maid?" than "hey, wouldn't it be cool if we cured all diseases?"
  • Clarke's Third Law: The comic explores the less-fun side of a world where anything can happen—or rather, what's left when that world eats itself up.
  • Gorn: The artist has done his research on gunshot wounds, and likes to show it off.
  • Gun Porn: He also does his research on guns, and also likes to show it off.
  • Little Bit Beastly: Cass has fox ears, a fox tail, and fox eyes, but otherwise her genetic tampering isn't obvious. This trope is rampant in the backstory, as the briefly-enjoyed singularity led to a lot of visually-appealing hybrids being made.
  • Winged Humanoid: Anistice. Notably, she hasn't been able to fly since she's started having (ahem) growth spurts.

How well does it match the trope?
