Amazing Agent Luna is now being published online as a webcomic.
This OEL manga contains examples of:
- The Ace: Control/Jennifer is shown to be this in her youth. Any hobby or activity that she decided to take up, she pursued till she was one of the best in the field. For example, she made the US Olympic swim team, and only backed out because her father objected to it being a distraction from what he wanted her to do.
- Alpha Bitch: Elizabeth Westbrook.
- Aloof Ally: Anders.
- Amazingly Embarrassing Parents: Oliver, especially when his mom starts to seriously see Mr Dreyfus.
- Bishie Sparkle
- Boxed Crook: Count Von Brucken, starting in the very last panel of Volume 5.
- But Now I Must Go: Jia, after her damaged fusion source is replaced by an alternative source supplied by Timothy.
- Call Forward: This scene in the prequel.
- Cloning Blues
- Cloudcuckoolander: Pricipal Ohlinger.
- Darker and Edgier: Year 2 is shaping up to become this, especially with cold fusion research being hounded by a mysterious group, Francesca rejoining Elizabeth after thinking Luna had caused Timothy to break up with her, and Luna herself apparently contemplating a Face Heel Turn.
- Defeat Means Friendship: After Luna defeats her evil clone, who then proceeds to lament her coming execution, she promises to keep the clone safe from harm.
- Defrosting Ice Queen: A major secondary plot involving Control.
- Disney Death: Jia. Hell, also Luna, Timothy, Jonah, and Anders after the Bruckenstein Embassy is leveled by the explosion meant for Jia.
- Evil Twin: Elizabeth Westbrook and even Luna wind up cloned by Von Brucken to further Project Scion.
- Face Heel Turn: Luna's expected path in Volume 8 can be construed as either this or (as the government may have been lying to her) becoming a Defector From Decadence. Also, it's possible she might side with Elizabeth in an attempt to win Francesca back.
- The Faceless: The three men who run The Agency are portrayed backlit, obscuring their features. There also appears to be some kind of voice masking, based on the shaded speech bubbles.
- Fantasy-Forbidding Father: Jennifer's father, who considered anything that distracted her from taking over the family business, including any extracurricular activities to be 'fantasy'.
- Government Agency of Fiction: The Agency.
- Heel Face Revolving Door: Make up your frakking mind, Jonah!
- Heel Face Turn: Timothy Hyatt.
- Idiot Ball: Count Von Brucken tends to hold this a lot, most notably in Volume 7 when Oliver dumps Luna after seeing him in her house. After Luna loses her temper on him, he's called out on his idiocy by Control.
- Jerkass: Control/Jennifer's father was established to be jerkish when he was introduced in AAL, but in the prequel AAJ, he is shown to have mellowed with age. As far as he was concerned, Jennifer should have done nothing in school that would have distracted her from learning to run his business better, to the point that he had already forbidden her from going to the Olympics as a swimmer. When she takes the Agency scholarship and no longer relies on his paying tuition allowing her to choose her own curriculum, he even forbids her mother from going to her graduation.
- Just Friends: Teens in high school means this gets said often.
- Laughably Evil: Count Von Brucken.
- Missing Mom: Oliver Riggs. His mom, Bowie O'Shea, returns a few chapters after Charlie Riggs becomes a Disappeared Dad.
- My God, What Have I Done?: Jonah, when his mother's real intentions with Jia start to sink in. After everyone survives the resulting Embassy explosion, he agrees to let Anders destroy the disk containing sensitive cold fusion data, and the two call a truce.
- Not So Stoic: Control when she breaks down in front of Andrew why she pushes Luna so hard. She's afraid that if The Agency ever sees Luna as a failure, they will destroy her... her daughter.
- Oh Crap: Elizabeth's Big No upon realizing Count Von Brucken dropped by to kidnap her.
- The Omniscient Council of Vagueness: The heads of The Agency present themselves this way, though they don't quite have the omniscient part down.
- Plot-Mandated Friendship Failure: Luna and Francesca when Francesca thinks Luna has caused Timothy to dump her and may be hiding more secrets, and Luna and Oliver when Oliver spots Count Von Brucken (who he had assumed was rotting in prison at the time) inside the house, thinking he's a Karma Houdini compared to his own father. These events may contribute to a Face Heel Turn from Luna, if the description of Volume 8 is anything to go by.
- Precision F-Strike: Luna has exactly one swear in the entire series so far: "Damn! He's gone. You guys cost me my shot at following Tromperie." Swearing by other characters, for that matter, is also rare.
- Another notable instance comes from Dr. Andy, who wants to know why Control's so hellbent on shaping Luna into a killer.
- Prequel: Amazing Agent Jennifer.
- Purple Eyes: Luna.
- Same Content Different Rating: The ratings for the initial individual printings of the first five volumes can cause a Funny Aneurysm Moment when you consider that those were rated Teen, whereas the Darker and Edgier installments were rated All Ages from the start.
- Scary Black Man: Mr Dreyfus, the strict gym teacher and perceptive ex-Navy SEAL.
- Squee: Luna when she walks in on Jennifer and Andrew kissing.
- Teen Superspy: Luna.
- Throwing Your Sword Always Works: Parodied in the first fight in the story, where the Count misses and ends up in a portrait.
- Un Cancelled: Volume 6 finally came out 2 years after volume 5 (which ended on a Cliff Hanger) was released.
- You Are Grounded: Happens to Luna in chapter 20. It seems to have been lifted by the start of volume 5, though.
