"Hey lady? That eggplant you're admiring there? I just molested it."
Villemous Quetzalcoatl CreepKnight

Voodoo Walrus is a surreal Action Adventure webcomic, written by Villemous CreepKnight and drawn and colored by Grymm Grymmowski. The comic was apparently created as a way for the pair to make use of all the weird and otherwise unusual ideas they had, but couldn't use for other comic projects. Over time, though, it's moved beyond that and has evolved its own strange continuity and overarching storyline.

At its core, Voodoo Walrus is about Grymm and CreepKnight as they revel in being indie comic creators, working their craft, going on the road to hit cons, and the social interactions with their circle of friends, associates, and would-be murderers. Beyond that, though, it's about two artists living and surviving in a world where their former boss and publisher may or may not be a demonic entity that wants the duo dead, superheroes not only exist, but are ruled by red tape, and strange, though benevolent eldritch abominations keep popping up without anyone seeming terribly perturbed by it.

In the past year, the comic has moved away from the focus on Grymm and CreepKnight working on comics due to their resignation from their publisher and having to deal with said publisher attempting to have them murdered by all whom they've accidentally wronged in the past. Though recent events seem to suggest that they'll finally have a reason to start working their crafts again.

This webcomic provides examples of:

  • Action Girl: Bowler and Mac are both excellent examples of this. Especially considering an entire storyline involved Mac instigating a bloody slaughter of a coup against her former employer.
    • Though Bowler seems to prefer to use a weaponized form of dancing as opposed to fisticuffs.
  • Art Evolution: A vast improvement has taken place since the comic first went live in 2007. Compare this and this. Same leading female character, same artist, but four years of practice can make all the difference.
  • Badass Longcoat: Grymm and Mirth are both regularly seen in long coats. The Masked T-Square has never been seen without one.
  • Big Bad: Cyradwee was this to a T for the first few years of the comic's run. Though recently he's been demoted by the appearance of the still mysterious Rip Flintlock.
  • Running Gag: Catsplosions.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: Mungo and Shmeerm are both prime examples of this.
