A very specific type of FanWebcomic.

The franchise as you know it (movie, TV series, cartoon, etc.) doesn't exist. Instead, the world and the characters are all part of a custom TabletopRPG campaign. The player characters - playing the main characters of the original work - are completely new to this story, which the DM completely controls. The comic is composed of stills taken from the cartoon, TV show, or movies, with the players (who are never seen) providing both in-character and out-of-character dialogue, and the DM acting as both narrator and harried omnipotent author -- and occasionally a character.

Oh, and some of them tend to have an AddedAlliterativeAppeal on the title[[note]]Thanks to ''Webcomic/DarthsAndDroids'' and the various one-shots involving other franchises in the same style[[/note]].

Creator/ShamusYoung's ''Webcomic/DMOfTheRings'' is the TropeMaker, since almost all of the comics it [[FollowTheLeader inspired]] use the same visual vocabulary (like yellow SpeechBubbles for the DM and {{NPC}}s).

Not to be confused with InteractiveComic. Or a RPGMechanicsVerse, where the rules are in play but there aren't a DM and players behind it all.
