It is a webcomic, or rather a web graphic novel: It follows a comicbook page layout and, unlike the serial format of most web fiction, the entire story--all 232 pages, including a front and back cover--was published at once.

Instead of throwing the show's concept over and making up something entirely new, ''FanFic/OfMiceAndMayhem'' picks up where the show left, and that is presumably after the episode "Good Times, Bat Times". Three of [[EnsembleDarkhorse the most popular one-shot characters]] have joined the Rescue Rangers (and been given an extra popularity boost), and this extra personnel, together with their individual abilities, is direly needed on the case the Rangers are thrown into, a case that doesn't only [[DarkerAndEdgier go beyond anything ever seen in official material]], but also takes several months to solve. Since the target audience isn't the same as the show's at that time, namely the first generation of fans who had all grown up by then rather than the kids who watched CDRR on Toon Disney, the author could increase the overall intensity by multiple notches.

While some accuse it of being a bad excuse for blatant {{Shipping}} promotion, most fans regard ''FanFic/OfMiceAndMayhem'' as one of the greatest creations ever done by a Rescue Rangers fan and "up there" together with the FanFiction epic ''Fanfic/RhymeAndReason''. It is often considered superior to the show as well as the official comics, both story-wise and drawings-wise, and it received fandom awards by the dozen.
