Craig the Combine is a series of webcomics originally posted on Deviantart in 2010 by creater Elemoth1.
The comics follow the life of Craig a unique type of combine soldier who likes to do things his own way and refuses to conform to the usual combine practises. Due to this he is both hated and feared by the rebels and combine forces with both groups usually trying their best to avoid him at all costs. Craig shares the cold traits of all combine soldiers but implements a style of very dry and morbid humor especially when dealing with death.
There are a number of different Craig comics, each with their own sperate story line per comics. In some cases the comics will follow a continuous story line (As with the later Craig the combine comics) while others will have their own short stories (Craig in downtown ETC).
The different types of comics are:
- Craig the combine
- Craig in downtown
- Craig vs Memes(fads)
- Craig the gamer.
Craig the CombineEdit
Craig is a combine soldier but unlike other combine he is not interested in the race at all, nor the dominance of earth. In fact Craig himself is a character who hates everyone except himself and is not afraid to express it in violent ways. Craig is cold hearted, violent and has a very cold sense of humor and because of this combination he is seen as a sort of anti-hero. Craig is a loner but at times he is willing to have company of another random character (although most of these are short lived). Craig is such a unique soldier the Combine forces themselves try to avoid him, at times they call him an outcast or a traitor and even attack him (although they usually lose the fight). The rebels themselves have the same situation (obviously because he is a combine) but are usually left confused due to his antics. Despite his hostile personality he is more "friendly" towards the rebels than the combine although at times this is heavily disputed. He enjoys the suffering of others and finds humor out of the most violent situations.
The Craig comics are set in different areas:
- Craig the combine: Basic Gmod map/Half life 2 Maps
- Craig in downtown: Big city custom map
- Craig vs Memes (1 comic): Counterstrike source assault map
- Craig the gamer: Big city custom map
