• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

The second crossover Web Comic from Vinson Ngo a.k.a Bleedman (the first being Powerpuff Girls Doujinshi), created in late 2004 (roughly a year after PPGD was started). Grim Tales from Down Below is a fan-comic based on fanfics, focusing on two characters created by E.R.M Griffin (DeadDoll00), the children of Grim and a now adult Mandy, from The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy, who in this Alternate Continuity are the king and queen of the underworld: Grim Jr. (a.k.a. Junior) and his patchwork sister Minnie (short for Mini-Mandy), while incorporating an origin fanfic for the two which was written by SonicRose.

Like PPGD, Grim Tales started off at DeviantArt before Ngo moved it to Snafu-Comics. Already well known, Grim Tales added more readers to Ngo's already overflowing fanbase. Ngo has a penchant for incorporating Narm, and Darker and Edgier in his works, and as such, the comic has garnered some controversy, particularly regarding a plot point within the comic where it is revealed that Mandy initiated the terrorist attacks of September 11th in an attempt to win Grim's affections.

After six years , the main series eventually finished in June 2009 and was apparently the end to the series. However Ngo unveiled he was working a short sequel called AfterBirth that apparently deals with Minimandy coping with her agelessness and being left alone after Junior sets out on a life of adventure. Here are some preview pics of the comic.

In February 2011, The comic continued with a mini-series called Grim Tales: What About Mimi (GT: WhAM) which will bridge the gap between the main story and Afterbirth. The comic follows Him's Daugther Mimi, who is sent into the Grim's household to local an object of immense power for him. During said mission, Mimi's past is brought to light bringing many shocking swerves with it.

If you're intrigued by all of the above, then commence reading. The sequel, Afterbirth, is uploaded fully on the Grim Tales Wiki. (Warning: you will have to navigate carefully to avoid spoilers)
