Dori Seda was an UndergroundComics artist (1951-88) who lived and worked in UsefulNotes/SanFrancisco where she met and co-worked with other underground comic stars, including Creator/RobertCrumb.

* BigFriendlyDog: Tona is very stinky, but otherwise not too bad.
* BlackComedy: Just one thing: The name "Sylvia Silicosis" she used for herself? It was based on the fact that she had this disease.
* BreakingTheFourthWall / RebellingAgainstTheAuthor: In one of her comics, her characters rebel against the way the story goes (it involves her - yes, Dori's - stinky dog, and that's all we're gonna say) and even leave the drawing paper at the end. Dori accepts and warns them of her cat (who's bigger than the characters) on the way out.
* ButchLesbian: Several in the "Terry Chop-Part" story.
* [[ComicBook/CherryComics Cherry Pop-Tart]]: Once parodied with Terry Chop-Part.
* ComicSutra: Two of her works feature a foursome which look... difficult.
* CoolAndUnusualPunishment: In one story about hell. Creator/JohnBelushi has to make UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler, the Creator/MarquisDeSade and Albert Fish laugh. Creator/JohnWayne is married to Creator/OscarWilde. And [[Film/TheThreeStooges Moe Howard]] is forced to watch ''Film/MyDinnerWithAndre'' forever.
* CrazyCatLady: She had two (one of them called Dracula), and a big dog, Tona
* DaddysGirl: He was a hobby artist and taught her to draw and paint from an early age.
* ADateWithRosiePalms: Some guy is doing this ''openly'' in a FunnyBackgroundEvent.
* {{Dominatrix}}: Hired by one curious guy. He gets literally addicted to this kind of sex, but then they have a row, and he decides to - date a gay guy, despite never having had any gay tendencies. And then, he likes it. Not sure whether this makes sense...
** And another story is about a woman who's a poor, suppressed employee by day and this by night. For the very boss who commands and punishes her during the day.
* DrosteImage:On the cover of her ''Lonely Nights: Comics to read if the couple next door is fucking too loud''. It shows the author with one of her comic books, and so on.
* GoodAngelBadAngel: With the devil wearing a leather [[OfCorsetsSexy corset]] and stockings.
* HardDrinkingPartyGirl: Dori herself. And she's not against harder drugs either.
* MudWrestling: Subverted by her mudwrestling story. It's all about her talking with a guy about making a comic about mudwrestling, but she admits at the end that she doesn't know a single thing about it.
* MyGirlIsNotASlut / MyGirlIsASlut: She once met a guy who insisted that she'd go to a swinger club with her. At first she wasn't fond of the idea at all. Then she met some nice Arab guy and had sex with him in a pool - and as it seems, her personality made a 180° turn. Her friend was pissed off.
* {{Nerd}}: In the swinger club story, her friend criticized her as this, because she didn't want to go to a pool with other nude people (well, at first, you know how things turned out).
* PhotoComic: She also made several of them, appearing in them as "Sylvia Silicosis".
* ReallyGetsAround
* UsefulNotes/SanFrancisco: Where she lived
* SmokingHotSex: After sex, people sometimes are depicted with smoking genitals.
* StarvingArtist
* Hopefully not SuspiciouslySpecificDenial ("no, I don't fuck my dog.")
* TakeOurWordForIt: The stink of Tona
* AThreesomeIsHot: Actually, no threesomes in her work, but two foursomes (two men and two women each)
* {{Transvestite}}: A friend of her, who appears in many stories.
* VisualPun: She made a cartoon about "cereal killers" and another one about bishop Tutu [[DontExplainTheJoke wearing a tutu]].
* WeNamedTheMonkeyJack: She had given her friend Tony a cat, which he called Doro. When she got a dog from him, she called him Tona.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Her buddy Joe O. suggested her to draw another CAUP comic, where UsefulNotes/SigmundFreud in hell has to psychoanalyze Harpo Marx - who stays in character all the time, i.e.
* WriteWhoYouKnow: Most of her stories even feature her as the main character.
