Before Spinnerette, there was Krakow. (No, not the city in Poland.)
Krazy Krow's debut comic, Krakow followed the Slice of Life adventures of Canadian roommates Tom and Case and Case's girlfriend Kia, who just happens to be a succubus that Case summoned from hell on a whim one day. It ran from 2000 to 2008.
Occasionally diverted into a subplot entitled "The Demon Sisters", in which the home life of Kia's family is told.
- Case: Canadian college student who got bored and decided to summon a succubus one day.
- Kia: Blue-haired succubus. Case's girlfriend. Works at a bookstore. Dresses... minimally.
- Tom: Canadian college student and Case's roommate. Goes through (very strange) girlfriends like tissue paper.
- Case's parents: Dad works for the US government (for some reason). Mom is a fairly typical MILF.
- Lucretia: Kia's green-haired older sister. Grouchy about her short horns, and not very tolerant of Kia's relationship with a human. (Something about letting perfectly good food go to waste.) Has three eyes.
- Guinness: Kia and Lucretia's little (half) sister; she's half-snake and just entering high school.
- Elise: Guinness's mother, and Kia and Lucretia's stepmother. Lucretia does not like her.
- Kia's Father: Possibly Satan, possibly just a high-level demon lord. Loves his daughters.
Unfortunately, this and all of KrazyKrow's pre-Spinnerette comics have gone missing from the site.
This contains examples of:
- A-Cup Angst: Played with. Lucretia's breasts are plenty nice, but she's insanely jealous of Kia's much longer devil horns. (It is all but canon that Guinness will eventually have much longer horns than Lucretia as well, which drives Lucretia up a wall.)
- Area51: Case's father worked there for a while.
- Be Careful What You Wish For: Well, Tom did manage to bag Cute Video Store Girl... after she turned into a fanatic bodybuilder.
- Butt Monkey: Tom, especially with his multiple oddball girlfriends.
- Canada, Eh?: This.
- Cargo Ship: Avril Arrow, a girl who is an airplane. Made infinitely weirder that Tom thought she was just a figment of his imagination... and she shows up for Case and Kia's wedding, after Tom literally dumped her by dismantling her and putting her in a trash bucket.
- she WAS a figment of his imagination. He asked Kia to arrange some spellcasting to call her up for the wedding anyway.
- Cute Monster Girl: Guinness. One of the sweetest six-armed demon nagas you'll ever meet.
- Designated Villain: Pretty much the entire point of the comic -- even for succubi Kia and Lucretia are nice and reasonably harmless, and Hell looks like... Pittsburgh. (It turns out that holy water is an excellent depilatory for succubi though.)
- Good Bad Girl: Kia is the perfect example -- though a succubus genetically, she's far happier working in a bookstore. Played with using Regan, a young vampire and Guinness's only friend at the beginning of high school, who listens to Christian Rock as an act of rebellion against her mother, who is incognito on Earth as a big star in the death metal music world. Except when she's singing sickengly cute kids' music to pay the bills...
- Humongous Mecha: Tom's job in Japan involves developing these to fend off Kaiju attacks.
- I Miss Mom: The source of the tensions between Lucretia and Elise. Kia also carries a locket with a picture of her.
- Les Yay: "You slither lovely."
- Mail Order Bride: Tom accidentally orders one and it turns out to be his crazy Russian professor's sister.
- My Eyes Are Up Here: Inverted, literally. Lucretia loses a contact lens and has to go to work with her glasses on -- and is really, really annoyed when a summoner can't keep his eyes on her cleavage because he's staring at her three-lensed glasses.
- Saying Too Much: On the upside, Chapters gets their money one way or another...
- She Is All Grown Up: Doesn't happen in the comic, but Guinness gets a lot of fanart of her as an adult.
- The Unpronounceable: CVSG.
- Third Eye: Lucretia.
- Those Wacky Nazis: Hannah.
- Traveling At the Speed of Plot: Lampshaded by Kia, who is 23 except when she's 1800.
- Tsundere: Yamaguchi-san is an Ax Crazy parody of the trope.
