Jack is a web comic created by Jack Antonucci. The series is about Jack, Robbie, Joey, and Anakin having misadventures in the small town of Southold. Oddly enough in some old comics R2-D2 of all characters was part of the main cast. As of May 2016 the characters are going under redesigns and it is currently on hiatus.

Not to be confused with David Hopkins's webcomic of the same name.


Jack contains examples of:

  • Anti-Hero: Robbie and Anakin, with Robbie being more Nominal Hero
  • Anime Hair: Anakin and to a minor degree Harry.
  • Ascended Extra: Anakin was originally a background character with weird hair and wan't properly introduced as a main member of the cast until over 20 comics after his debut.
  • Author Avatar: The main characters are based on real people.
  • Bland-Name Product: Many of these are seen in the show, "Poke (a cola)" the most often.
  • Butt-Monkey: Most characters especially Anakin.
  • Cloud Cuckooland: Southold in the show, not so much in real life. Also inside R2's mind [1] oh yeah.
  • Color-Coded Characters: Jack is blue, Robbie is yellow, R2 was white, Joey is green, and Anakin is Red with a Grey overcoat.

  • Crapsack World: Southold is also this at the same time.
  • Cute Kitten: Dusty
  • The Dog Was The Master Mind: The killer of Little Jimmy in the "Who Killed Him" story arc was Little Jimmy who became a Zombie
  • Robot Buddy: R2 in the old comics
  • For Science!!: Leif did this in the old comics before he was removed.
  • Four-Philosophy Ensemble:
    • Jack is the Optimist
    • Robbie is the cynic
    • Joey is the realist
    • Anakin in the Apathetic
  • Funny Afro: Anakin has one, mostly because he has one in real life.
  • Gun Nut: Robbie, definitely.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Jerk: Robbie
  • Mad Scientist: Leif, who thankfully a good guy.
  • Negative Continuity: The main charters frequently die and come back for the next comic. (unless it's a story arc)
  • No Fourth Wall: In the earlier comic the fourth wall was regularly broken every other strip.
  • Pungeon Master: Jack
  • Red Shirt: Anakin dies in almost EVERY comic he's in. He doesn't get it better in the comics. Just for Pun, he even wears a red shirt.

  • Rule of Funny: The reason the Strip exists.
  • Sadist Show: Almost everything ends up being destroyed something and someone at the very least gets injured. Oh yeah and talk about Anakin.
  • Spiky Hair: Harry
  • Stylistic Suck: Can be this to some readers. Justified as the design was made when Jack was eight.
  • They Killed Anakin Again: Other characters die a lot too, but Anakin dies Once per Episode.
  • Token Evil Teammate: Robbie, in fact he sometimes becomes a straight out antagonist. Anakin is also very stupid, narcissistic and very easily bribed by villains!
  • Villain Protagonist: Robbie, is evil, he plans to take over the world and more.
  • With Friends Like These... Sort of, R2 considered Robbie a friend, but Robbie just wanted to destroy him. He killed him once[2], but it's just like when other main characters die.
  • World of Weirdness: Everything about the comic's world is... off.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Or, in this case, spiders, as Jack is Arachnophobic(It's worse in real life). Anakin also takes baldness badly.
  • Zombi Apocalypse: Three times there's this comic: [3], then there's one where Little Jimmy turmed himself into a zombie then another time on bet Smeck (a one shot character).
