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 ([[DeepImmersionGaming 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.
