'''[[http://www.mansionofe.com The Mansion of E]]''' is a daily fantasy webcomic created by Robert Cook, AKA Troper Tropers/{{Geoduck}}. The eponymous structure is a large cactus-shaped edifice mysteriously perched on the side of a high cliff overlooking a Specific Ocean, surrounded by a ruin-strewn forest. Underneath is the "Basement", a collection of caverns and tunnels and such, going deep into the earth. The strip painstakingly details the activities of the Mansion/Forest/Basement's many and diverse inhabitants; including a few Humans, who technically own the entire place. The plot is set in motion by the sudden arrival on the scene of the wandering heroine Rosemary Ripley, who sets off a long series of events disrupting the established order.

The strip is currently hosted by ComicGenesis. There's also a [[http://mansionofe.wikia.com/wiki/Mansion_of_E_Wiki fan-run wiki]].
