* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: When Miriam is told that she's the best soap opera around, she replies with, "Sometimes I wish I was written better, but I do the best with the material I'm given." This could also double as SelfDeprecation on the author's part.

''[[http://www.outtherecomic.com Out There]]'' is a webcomic by R. C. Monroe. It focuses on the exploits of Miriam, a hedonistic, self-centered, self-destructive bartender with a good heart and a strong desire to change for the betteróas long the change doesnít interfere with her endless search for pleasure. Yes, she's a bit conflicted. ''Out There'' features an ensemble cast (Miriamís various friends, lovers, ex-lovers, would-be lovers, etc.), some of whom are occasionally featured in their own arcs, but itís mostly The Miriam Show, because she wouldn't have it any other way.

* AccidentalMisnaming: James never uses Miriam's name, always referring to her as "Red". Sherry always calls her ex-flame Steven "Stevie". After Miriam breaks up with him, ''she'' takes to calling him "Stevie" as well, much to his annoyance.

Out There features an ensemble cast (Miriamís various friends, lovers, ex-lovers, would-be lovers, etc.), some of whom are occasionally featured in their own arcs, but itís mostly The Miriam Show, because she wouldn't have it any other way.

Using a four-panel (five in the early days), black-and-white {{Newspaper Comic}} format, Out There updated six days a week without fail from June 12, 2006 to June 4, 2011. The week of June 6-10, 2011 marked the beginning of a five week strip- the author citing time constraints and the inability to support himself solely on the strip as reasons why he cut the Saturday strip. As of June 2013, it's switched to one larger color strip per week, alternating with new comics ''In Here'' (an alternate continuity involving Miriam) and ''Cliché Flambé'' (Miriam and company BreakingTheFourthWall to present author rants about a new cliché each week).

Out There is a "quiet" comedy; there's a punchline at the end of every strip but the humor is generally subtle, understated. At its heart, Out There is a character drama, and its characters are well-developed, complex, and realistic.
