''Miamaska'' follows the story of a girl who wound up in another dimension after walking into a [[FlatWhat parking garage]].

The world into which Amity wandered has been dragging people from other dimensions into its own for as long as anyone can remember. Unfortunately, most don't live long enough to find their way back. Amity's lucky enough to have appeared in the world near a somewhat non-hostile resident, whose father takes her under his wing for the time being.

!!This webcomic provides examples of:
* AliensSpeakingEnglish: Subverted. How is it that people from another dimension speak English? They don't. Otherworlders speak and understand [[http://miamaska.tidalcomics.com/index.php?strip_id=33 all languages]].
** The translation seems to be somewhat unreliable, and may be a form of telepathy. Proper names, for example, seem to invoke something in what Aleco calls [[http://miamaska.com/index.php?pn=109 the "miamaska"]] (which is apparently whatever effect translates languages for outworlders) that causes headaches, and Amity hears odd echoes of different words at times, shown to the audience as overlapping word balloons with [[http://miamaska.com/index.php?pn=154 different text in them.]] After Kit and Ket talked to the Masked Man (who is an outworlder named Loric using an actual translator device, possibly indicating that the Miamaska effect isn't universal, since Loric evidently believes the translator is needed [[http://miamaska.com/index.php?pn=78 here]]) [[http://miamaska.tidalcomics.com/index.php?pn=139 Ket comments that he didn't hear the Miamaska effect.]]
* ArrowCatch: Guere pulls this off [[http://miamaska.tidalcomics.com/?strip_id=55 pretty well]].
* AudienceSurrogate: Amity. Clearing up [[http://miamaska.tidalcomics.com/index.php?strip_id=33 plot holes]] and [[http://miamaska.tidalcomics.com/index.php?strip_id=43 odd pronunciation]] galore!
* BrotherSisterTeam: Kit and Ket.
* CastOfSnowflakes: Even with unimportant mob characters, author Jeinu takes care to construct [[http://miamaska.tidalcomics.com/index.php?strip_id=49 unique characters]]. Apparently he gets ticked off at OnlySixFaces and even made a [[http://fav.me/d2j3z86 tutorial series]] about it.
* {{Chiaroscuro}}: Extensive use in darkly lit scenes.
* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: Each character has a unique color for their word baloons, so you can tell who is speaking even if you can't see the speaker.
* EasingIntoTheAdventure
* EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette: Kit. Just... Kit. Not so much Ket.
* TheFaceless: [[http://miamaska.tidalcomics.com/index.php?strip_id=36 The masked man]].
* FutureShadowing: Amity is shown with longer hair and different companions. WordOfGod says [[http://miamaska.tidalcomics.com/index.php?strip_id=38 this]] won't make sense for another [[http://fav.me/d3gc6u9 three years]].
* GreenEyes: Kit and Ket.
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: Averted. There's a four-day time-skip, during which Amity apparently asked the same questions over and over, but all her previous memories are intact, if fuzzy.
* NaiveNewcomer: Amity.
* NoPronunciationGuide: Averted. Amity acts as an AudienceSurrogate to get proper pronunciation across. Seen [[http://miamaska.tidalcomics.com/index.php?strip_id=32 here]] and [[http://miamaska.tidalcomics.com/index.php?strip_id=43 here]].
* PurpleEyes: The sclera (the "white"), not iris.
* RainbowSpeak: To some degree, with the speech bubbles.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: At least, that's how it is for the Alodian citizens...
* ScaryShinyGlasses: The masked man's first appearance.
* SiblingsInCrime: Kit and Ket are being set up as the story's villains, and they are brother and sister.
* TapOnTheHead: Results in a concussion, causing memory problems (see LaserGuidedAmnesia), headaches, dizziness, and confusion.
* TechnicolorEyes: The otherworlders have red irises and purple sclera, and people native to Amity's world have blue sclera (which changed to the otherworlder scheme when Amity got transported).
* TrappedInAnotherWorld: Amity and Guere.
* WakingUpElsewhere: After waking from a tap on the head in an open field, Amity finds herself sitting at a table indoors.
