The title page for Chapter One: Sugars.

Cornucopia (also known as Nuco) is a webcomic by Brendan Blaber, aka JelloApocalypse. The comic follows Hiccup, a ninja who travels across the continent of Cornucopia having adventures.

Currently, the comic is on hiatus after Jello started production on the first season of Epithet Erased. A backup can be found here.

Cornucopia contains examples of:

  • Atrocious Alias: Hiccup chooses the alias “Yawn” when in Sugars.
  • Bait-and-Switch Comment:
    Lily: You’re a ninja!? That’s so... disappointing.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Hiccup often makes sarcastic remarks, either at the other characters or to himself.
    Hiccup: Oh no. Imagine me. A ninja. Defeated by a net.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Hiccup may be a thief, but he’s horrified by the king allowing the army to open fire on him when he’s holding Lily hostage as a human shield.
  • Advertisement:
  • Genki Girl: Lily is the energetic and easily excited groundskeeper of the Palace of Sugars.
  • Inside Job: Hiccup joins the gumdrop guard (as a volunteer) to steal the Golden Gumdrop.
  • Secret Underground Passage: The Palace of Sugars has one of these, leading from the dungeon to the bathroom.
  • Shoot the Hostage: At the end of chapter one, Hiccup is holding Lily hostage as a human shield to stop the army from attacking him. The king decides they should open fire anyway. At the last moment, Hiccup pushes her away and lets himself be arrested.
  • What Kind of Lame Power Is Heart, Anyway?: Many people make fun of Hiccup’s chosen power: controlling paint.
    Lily: Pfft! That’s a stupid power!
