* ''[[http://www.slowwave.com/index.php Slow Wave]]'' is a collective dream diary in comic form. It makes roughly no sense. Although this might be a subversion, since A) The whole thing is descriptions of dreams, and B) This Troper sent in a dream which the author rearranged to make ''less'' sense.

Since they're not meant to be taken seriously, DadaComics are (with at least [[OneOverZero two]] [[Webcomic/DresdenCodak exceptions]]) almost never subject to CerebusSyndrome.

* Edward Gorey's [[SurrealHumor blatantly surreal]] and occasionally nightmarish illustrated short stories provide an UrExample for this trope, with particular credit due to ''The West Wing'', ''The Epileptic Bicycle'' and ''[Untitled]''.

* Edward Gorey's [[SurrealHumor blatantly surreal]] and occasionally nightmarish illustrated short stories provide an UrExample early example for this trope, trope-- likely a TropeMaker-- with particular credit due to ''The West Wing'', ''The Epileptic Bicycle'' and ''[Untitled]''.''[Untitled]''.
* ''ComicStrip/DreamOfTheRarebitFiend'' by Creator/WinsorMcCay is perhaps the UrExample, running from 1904-1925. The plot of each strip involves a new character finding themselves in increasingly bizarre and surreal situations--sometimes humorous, sometimes horrifying-- only to [[AllJustADream wake up]] and find out that it was all just an AcidRefluxNightmare brought on by eating too much Welsh Rarebit[[note]]a dish consisting of seasoned melted cheese on toast[[/note]]. The FramingDevice let [=McCay=] get away with some eye-popping examples of absurdism and surrealism long before either was a recognized artistic movement.

* ''Webcomic/{{Ghettonauts}}'', a fancomic of ''{{Psychonauts}}'', has it's first page being a shot of one of the campers laying in the grass, apparently on an acid trip, and that's it. It gets weirder.

* "The Angriest Dog in the World" consists of a panel that briefly explains the, um, "premise" of the comic, followed by three panels of the dog in his owners' yard. The final panel is the same as the preceding three, but set at night. The only way to distinguish one comic from another is by the word balloons emanating from the house, which expound on topics ranging from silly puns to existentialist dilemmas to the makeup of obscure chemical compounds. Oh, by the way, it's written by DavidLynch.
* Max Cannon's ''RedMeat'' [[http://www.redmeat.com/redmeat/ (Available online)]]

* Gary Larson's ''TheFarSide'' (no recurring characters, with some minor, still non-canon exceptions), twisted non-sequiturs, blenderized pop-culture in-jokes -- pretty much the forerunner of all the other DadaComics in the newspapers)

* ''Webcomic/{{Chicanery}}'', a sprite comic starring an assortment of ''Videogame/{{Earthbound}}'' characters and other clip art. After the events of the game, Pokey embezzles $44 million from Giygas so that he and Ness "have enough legal tender [[LampshadeHanging to go on nonsensical zany adventures]]". They are quickly joined in their escapades by a trigger-happy Mr. Saturn who is relatively more coherent than others of his kind, Mr. T (represented by the "generic black guy" sprite from ''Videogame/{{Earthbound}}'', which looked unmistakably like the real T), Ness's former comrade Jeff, and Pip from ''VideoGame/ChronoCross''. These escapades include traveling through time to prevent a nuclear detonation (and briefly ending up in medieval times, represented by graphics from ''VideoGame/UltimaI''), the occasional treasure hunt, extended parodies of ''VideoGame/ParasiteEve'' and ''Franchise/MetalGear'', and a fight between a giant Mister B. Natural and a HumongousMecha based on ''{{MST3K}}'''s Frank Conniff ("the 2000-inch TV's Frank").
