* StrawmanPolitical: Let's see: Ted Turner is a doofus, Spike Lee is the Kingpin of Crime, Radio/RushLimbaugh is a godlike hero (and slender, to boot), intelligent design is real with the theory of evolution decried as short-sighted and stupid (not to mention Jack directly insults paleontologists), the original humans were ''white'', there's lots of batshit insane pseudoscience to support the comic's ideas on evolution and intelligent design, and charity, racial sensitivity, vegetarianism, political correctness, and more, are mocked. Yeah, there's a certain political ideology being pushed here.

* PlotHole: You can't go more than three steps without falling into one. Around issues 3 to 5, the Time Machine's mechanics become a little confusing and inconsistent. The characters decide to use a bag, some water, and a pre-historic life form to check what year they're arriving at, but it's never explained how ''they're'' not aging along with it either, and a panel ago, there's a window on the time machine, rendering their "biological clock" a little pointless. Also they claim that the Time Machine does not move from the location they started from, but Al was sent into the middle of the street when he first arrived in the past.

And let's not forget the Time Machine's presence is confusing, since the first issue has Ted Turner directly state that the Time Machine is in the future and he has no way to send it back to Al.

* AndNowForSomethingCompletelyDifferent: Marville #7 is... a submission guide for the then-upcoming Epic line of Marvel Comics. How anyone is supported to know this is unclear, since the cover is graced by the same Marville logo, the same Marville cover chick, and "EPIC" showing on the Series/WheelOfFortune board.

A notorious [[ShallowParody "parody"]] comic created by Creator/MarvelComics editor [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} Bill Jemas]], as a bet between him, Ron Zimmerman and PeterDavid on who could make a better-selling comic. Known as the "U-Decide" event, Zimmerman's six-issue ''ComicBook/UltimateAdventures'' took a year and a half to come out. David's ''[[Comicbook/CaptainMarVell Captain Marvel]]'' title went on for twenty-five issues and was well-regarded. As for ''Marville'', well...

* ArtShift: Issue #3, that ditches thought balloons in lieu of text running in the borders of the comic. Then #5 eschews art of any kind and has ''text on a blue background for two pages.''

* ScienceIsWrong: The comic does this to an insulting degree, To the point that it pretty much states that if you believe in science [[YouFool you are a moron.]]

* CerebusSyndrome: It went from a "parody" comic to a philosophical comic about life, the universe, and everything. Amusingly, it results in the comic becoming even weirder than it already was in contrast to most example of the trope. Also doubles as GoingCosmic.
