Webcomic / Bongo and Luna

Go To
A sex/horror/comedy webcomic by artist Alfredo Morales.

The comic follows the foibles of the titular Bongo and Luna. Who just happen to be a Clown (As in her species is Clown) and a ghost respectively.

Joining them is a mostly silent Frankenstein's Monster dubbed 'Tori', a stoner Zombie, a very angry little demon and various other oddball fantasy creatures.

The comic is mildly NSFW. It can be found at Webtoon.

Currently on indefinite hiatus.

  • Body Horror: When Lexy blackmails Luna with the threat of her true name, Luna begins disintegrating from the emotional stress.
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: To catch Lexy after her knowledge of Luna's true name begins hurting her, Bongo pops off one of her afro-pigtails and drops it down two comic panels to snare her.
  • Cast Full of Gay: Almost. The only confirmed straight character is Bongo.
  • Cats Are Mean:
    • Bongo's landlord, Miss Kyle. A rather short-tempered cat person.

    • Garfunkel, Sarina's talking, non-anthropomorphic cat roommate, isn't the most pleasant of felines either.
  • Clown Species: Bongo and other Clowns are their own, separate race from regular humans.
  • Death Glare: When Luna tries to get a grope on a drunk Bongo, Bongo sobers up instantly and delivers a heart-stopping glare.
  • D-Cup Distress: Bongo isn't a fan of her Gag Boobs. What with Luna's frequent lusting after them, the time they caused a 20 car crash and various other annoyances.
  • Distracted by the Sexy:
    • To insane degrees, when Bongo caused a twenty car pileup and a helicopter crash due to the drivers ogling her in a revealing shirt.
    Bongo: I don't want to take anymore lives, Luna.
    • When Aubrey spots Luna and Tori on the street, Tori's in motion assets send her into a bunch of trash cans.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: Luna is barefoot the majority of the time.
  • Dope Slap: Delivered by Tori when Luna misses the thrift store they were searching for, despite it being right behind them moments earlier.

  • The Eeyore: Lenore the ghost. A rather morose undead.
  • Extraordinary World, Ordinary Problems: Despite the world having a Clown Species, ghosts, demons, reanimated dead, and more, the main characters face a lot of mundane issues. Best seen when Bongo visits her parents: she meets an old highschool friend who has her dream job, a husband, and a kid. Bongo later starts tearing up as she shares with Luna how inadequate she feels about her shortcomings.
  • Eye Scream:
  • Fair for Its Day: In-Universe. Luna apparently uses racial slurs when Bongo isn't around. She defends herself by reminding Bongo that she was alive in the 50's.
  • Frankenstein's Monster: Tori. Complete with stitch marks and body parts of varying color.
  • Gag Boobs: Bongo is a clown with large breasts. It's practically a Stealth Pun.
  • Hartman Hips: Bongo's old school friend, Gabby. Described by Luna as "Real thick".
  • A Hell of a Time: Luna's first moments in Hell involved being dropped into a lake of boiling blood (The lust section) and getting violated by a nightmarish demon with a pitchfork tipped with vibrators. Luna apparently loved every moment, and has no ill memories of Hell. Even the demon.
    Luna: It was love at first sight.
  • I Know Your True Name: Lexy knows Luna's.
  • Incompatible Orientation: Luna finds Bongo attractive and often flirts with her, but it falls flat since Bongo is straight.
  • Irony: Luna, the sex-crazed ghost died a virgin.
  • Lovable Sex Maniac: Luna loves sex, and is not remotely ashamed of it.
  • Meaningful Name: A bizarre thing with Clowns, as their names can actually influence their bodies as they get older. Such as Bongo's Gag Boobs.
    Bongo: What does "Big Boobs" have to do with my name?
    Bongo's Mom: You can slap big boobs like bongo drums, I guess.
  • Moment Killer: Luna has a habit of ruining sweet moments by lusting after Bongo.
  • Official Couple: Sarina and Kaira as of page 121.
  • Our Monsters Are Different
  • Our Zombies Are Different: Kaira became a zombie through a combination of poor health and the squalid living conditions her roommate left her apartment in.
  • The Quiet One: Tori began this way, having not grasped speech. She gets the spin of it as the comic goes on, eventually becoming fully vocal.
  • Reality Warper: Bongo can do some downright reality warping things when she taps into the 'Clown Force'. The catch is that she can only use it when it's funny.
  • That Man Is Dead: Luna considers herself a different person from who she was when she was alive. Even eschewing her original name of Meredith Ann Merribelle.
  • The Stoner: Kaira is never seen without a joint hanging from her mouth.
  • Straight Man: Despite being a Clown, Bongo is frequently the sane party next to Luna. She's also the singular confirmed straight character in the comic.
