Go To

The Fancy Adventures Of Jack Cannon is a webcomic that is written and drawn by Jamie Anderson.

Until recently, Jack Cannon has been home schooled. His life changed drastically when he started going to High School.

On his first day in High School, Jack becomes friends with two girls named Angel and Cindy. He also got to know the resident Jerkass Craig, who is a Hacker, and not the usual kind of hacker. No, these hackers are people who hack reality. Jack is going to have some serious problems...

Contains examples of:

  • Accidental Truth: Angel telling Craig that Jack is "the most badass fighter ever" in hopes it will save his skin.
  • Action Girl: Lilly and Crystal. Angel qualifies as well, to a lesser extent.
  • Action Mom: Jack's mother is a professional bodyguard. And probably almost certainly some sort of ninja.
  • Answers to the Name of God: When Frankie gets teleported to the hacker base in a straightjacket.
    Frankie: Oh god oh god oh god...
    Gavin: Please stop calling me that.
  • Anti-Magic: Pretty much the only reason Jack isn't dead.
  • Art Evolution: The art changed from more of a cartoony style to a more realistic one.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: The Principal and Gavin
  • Badass Family: The Cannons are all some sort of super soldiers.
  • Badass in Distress: Max, the principal, and Jack himself are all put in this position briefly. After her scarf is taken away, Crystal ends up in the same situation. For the majority of the cast, this trope is in effect whenever they end up in distress.
  • Badass Normal: Jack Cannon himself.
    • One might argue that with recent developments that he has become an Empowered Badass Normal, but since his only power is that he at least partially negates any and all hackings in the area, it could be argued that he's so badass normal that he normalizes everything around him.
  • Big Bad: Gavin.
  • Big Ol' Eyebrows: Jack, and to a much greater extent Max.
  • Blessed with Suck: The 4th type. Jack's extreme fighting prowess has gotten him the attention of all the wrong people.
    • He can also shrug off any hacks aimed at him but it puts massive stresses on his system and will kill him if he's pushed too far.
    • The comic has explored what happens if you put a person who unconciously negates hacks into a space station hacked into existence.
  • Brain Uploading: Hacker leader Gavin tried to make a backup copy of his mind before attempting to hack his cancer away. Things didn't go as planned.
  • Butt-Monkey: Lipbite. He keeps getting beat up, amusingly.
  • Character Blog: Max Facepuncher has a twitter.
    • And it is GLORIOUS!!!
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Jack's Evil Knockoff never stood a chance.
  • Cybernetics Eat Your Soul: what happened to Gavin after he'd uploaded his personality to the server.
