Webcomic / The Adventures of Aryan Boy

Go To
Into the Snafu truck!

"Here is presented a most curious chronicle, that of the noble young Aryan Boy, as he lives a life of intrigue, mystery, politics, romance and ethnic sufferings."

The Adventures of Aryan Boy is a webcomic, hosted on Smack Jeeves, detailing the political, ethnic, and sometimes painful shenanigans of the young and hapless Aryan Boy, a British blond-haired, blue-eyed Caucasian youth living in London with a slight admiration for Those Wacky Nazis. The comic features many compelling characters, such as the Nurse Killemly, aka Rich Oriental who acts as Aryan Boy's love interest, Aryan Boy's "conniving American" friend, Dixie Girl, his other American friend, the ex-marine Jersey Guy, and the enigmatic Clover Fascist, who also doubles as Medical Professional Dr. Helen Donov.

The story begins with Aryan Boy doing his daily studies on "/Pol/itics," when he is interrupted by the aforementioned Dixie Girl through Skype. She tells him an anecdote about an interracial couple she witnessed on a walk, which promptly horrifies his "Racial purity" obsessed self. Traumatized, he takes himself away from the computer to relieve his mind. He settles down with his favorite book, and proceeds to go Cycling. On the way, he notices a surprisingly beautiful, dark-haired woman on the campus of Roedean Independent School... who happens to be Asian. Incredibly conflicted in his attraction to her, he approaches the Oriental...only to be nailed to the wall with shuriken as a precautionary measure. Apparently, there's something suspicious about this Roedean place. After being mutilated and sedated, he gets tossed into a van and then thrown into a dark alley, covered in blood. Things proceed to go From Bad to Worse when the imposing, trenchcoat-clad Clover Fascist arrives and subsequently tortures the shit out of him. The rest of the comic is one giant SNAFU, with Aryan Boy getting tortured again and again, forced to commit acts of terrorism, and being betrayed by his own friends.

Tropes present in Aryan Boy:

  • Abandoned Area and Abandoned Laboratory: The nightmarish Fort Truculent is a supposedly abandoned closed down military base in New York State that Aryan Boy is sent to investigate. It turns out to be full of horrifying mutated experiments and is occupied by a "Snifflegavenist" Cult.
  • Acronym and Abbreviation Overload: There's a surplus of government organizations and special ops groups to get abbreviated in Aryan Boy, such as ARCHA (Administration of Regulating Counterterrorism and Hazardous Activity), CASO (Chinese Agency for Special Operations), EDEN (European Division of Espionage), and RAME (Russian Administration of Martial Espionage).
  • Alliterative Name: Plenty, with names like Mossad Megan, Covert Clover, Conspiracy Cafe, Hopeful Hospital, Taiwanese Terror, and Black Boss.
  • Advertisement:
  • Badass Army: The Association for the Liberation of China (ALC), a 70,000 strong Taiwanese guerilla army, headed by Anne Dixie's own mother, a source of much shame for her. They're hellbent on restoring Mainland China to the ROC's control, and by any means.
  • Badass Longcoat: Clovermily has one, along with a fashionable Commissar Cap. Agent Beard has one but he doesn't really get to use it, much to his disappointment.
  • Big Applesauce: The series setting shifts from London, Aryan Boy's native city, to New York, after he gets unwillingly sent there by the Clover Fascist.
  • Boy Meets Girl: The Emily Saga is based on this.
  • Butt-Monkey: The entire plot seems to revolve around Aryan Boy getting beat up, tortured and screwed with. The poor guy never gets a break.
  • Cold-Blooded Torture: Holy shit. As mentioned above, the series revolves around this. Aryan Boy is first tortured by Clovermily in a dark London alleyway (but not after getting nailed to a wall with Shuriken by Killemly), then gets horribly tortured and cut up a second time by a fanatic tentacle-monster worshipping cult in an abandoned military installation, and then he gets tossed into the throes of agony again when he's captured by ARCHA and taken to a horrifying US torture center called Black Bay.
  • Cyborg: ARCHA/Black Eagle agents Frank Beard and Anne Dixie have cybernetic implants from Black Eagle's mission control division, that allow them to instantly access mission data, real-time updates and reports. Each has a bionic eye that feeds directly to their brain allowing them to see much more data than a normal person. Implanted in their arms is the Zion Code, a biochip protocol that when linked to another ZC identifies allies.
  • Dramatic Ellipsis: Way too many of these...
  • Early Installment Weirdness: The series opens up with the odd "Bathtub Banality" and "Alexi's Troubles 1" pages, which have seemingly no relation at all to the rest of the comic and are still unfinished.
  • Electronic Eyes: ARCHA agents Frank Beard and Anne Dixie each have one cybernetic eye that provides extensive data about their immediate environment. Aryan Boy later gets one unwillingly.
  • Electric Torture: ARCHA is fond of using this method for interrogation, especially the resident interrogation specialist Agent Beard.
  • Elites Are More Glamorous: Taken Up To Eleven. Pretty much every single adversary Aryan Boy and his companions face is a member of some elite, top-secret special ops unit.
  • Evilutionary Biologist: Doctor Helen Donov is one of these.
  • Eye Scream: Aryan Boy gets his fucking eye cut out by ARCHA's interrogation specialist Macedon-893, who unbeknownst to Aryan Boy is his own friend Frank.
  • Fanservice: When Aryan Boy gets examined by Dr. Donov and injected with Super Serum.
  • Four Eyes, Zero Soul: The evil character Clovermily wears glasses.
  • Greedy Jew: Mossad Megan, waitress at the Conspiracy Cafe, is shown sneakily collecting tips from tables she hasn't serviced.
  • In-Joke: Almost the entire series is based around injokes.
  • Evil Former Friend: Clovermily and Aryan Boy were friends when they were children.
  • Matzo Fever: Both Aryan Boy and Anne Dixie are into Megan.
  • Mighty Whitey and Mellow Yellow: Aryan Boy falls hard and fast for the attractive Asian Killemly.
  • Mission Control: Agents Beard and Dixie can access this through their Zionic Eye.
  • Psycho Lesbian: The sexually frustrated Donov/Clovermily is an example.
  • Putting on the Reich: Clovermily, and the Clover Reich in general.
  • Scary Black Man: Head of ARCHA, Black Boss. We never actually see anything except his huge, black hands...
  • Shout-Out: Nearly every single character is a shout out to someone the authors know. Aryan Boy is in fact a real person who lives in London. They don't get tortured as often though.
  • Socially Awkward Hero: Aryan Boy.
  • Shirtless Scene: Again, when Aryan Boy gets examined by Dr. Donov.
  • Super Serum: Injected into Aryan Boy by Doctor Donov, so that he can serve the Clover Reich. She calls it "the next evolutionary step for humanity".
  • The Conspiracy: There seems to be a giant one hanging behind the entire story, and Black Eagle seems to be at the heart of it. There is even a Conspiracy Cafe that serves a beverage called the Illuminati Special, which is a glowing blue liquid served in a triangular golden cup. Aryan Boy remarks that it tastes like "metal and blood".
  • The Faceless: Black Boss, ARCHA's intelligence division director's face is never shown. It is always swathed in shadow.
  • The Name Is Bond, James Bond: Aryan Boy does this when introducing himself to Killemly.
  • The Spymaster: Black Boss is the leader of ARCHA's intelligence division and controls all of its spies, assigning them missions and guiding them while they're in the field.
  • Those Wacky Nazis: As mentioned at the beginning of this thread, Aryan Boy seems to have an admiration for der Fuhrer, and his favorite book is Mein Kampf. The Clover Reich seems definitely similar to them as well, but their relation is unknown.
  • Torture Technician: All of ARCHA is trained in interrogation, but Agent Frank A. Beard specializes in it.
  • Utopia Justifies the Means: Clovermily's ultimate goal is the creation of a worldwide Clover Reich that will propel humanity into a "new age of unparalleled progress" and "evolve the human race". She won't stop at anything to create it.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Clovermily wants to create the Clover Reich to benefit humanity, but has extremely questionable methods.
  • You Are What You Hate: Aryan Boy professes to despise racemixing, but still manages to find himself very attracted to the asian Killemly.
  • Your Terrorists Are Our Freedom Fighters: To the people of the People's Republic of China, the ALC is a radically violent and insane army of terrorists. To the Taiwanese people, they are heroes combating the commies and reclaiming the homeland.
