''The Devil's Panties'', started in October 8, 2001, is an "autobiographical online daily comic about conventions, comic shops, and pirates." It details the misadventures the webcomic author/artist Jennie Breeden has in her life (because truth is stranger than fiction), occasionally [[LifeEmbellished exaggerating or dipping into fiction]], such as in her conversations with Jesus and The Devil.

!!Tropes:

* AffablyEvil: Satan
* AffectionateGestureToTheHead: Jennie is the recipient of a condescending one during a 2011 Canada trip.
* AllWomenAreLustful: This one for sure, and a number of her friends.
* {{Atlanta}}: Where the artist lives and most strips are set.
* AuthorAppeal: Asian guys, [[ManInAKilt men in kilts]].
* AuthorAvatar: Jennie, or "Jen".
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: "I want the plague!" She actually gets mono. At least it's less horrid than the bubonic plague.
* BSideComics: ''[[http://geebasonparade.com/ Geebas On Parade]]'', a comic about {{LARP}}ing, part DeepImmersionGaming, part real-world effects.
* CaffeineBulletTime: With travelling and then needing to be awake for the event, Jennie attended a lot of conventions in a crazed state of sleep-deprivation and sugar-rush. Fans would give her sugary snacks to provoke this manic behaviour, something she later cut down on.
* CharacterDevelopment: Jen develops in tandem with her author, growing up over the comic's run - starting at college and through working assorted jobs before becoming a full-time artist - but has diverged into an exaggerated fantasy version of herself, shorter, angrier, sillier, able to do and say things the real Jennie couldn't.
* CrazyPrepared: Jennie's emergency kit.
* DerailedFairyTale: Occasionally a strip was replaced with a parody of a fairy tale a few years back.
* EditorialSynaesthesia: Jen [[http://thedevilspanties.com/archives/5997 visits her boyfriend's mother]], who has far more energy than English. "I would only catch one or two Spanish words that I recognized and the rest turned into a hundred mile an hour blurred dialogue." To represent this, her {{speech bubble}}s are filled with squiggles and the occasional word.
* EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses: In addition to the traditional Angel and Devil on her shoulder Jennie also has a Pink Princess to represent her girlie side.
* FreakierThanFiction
* FriendlyEnemies: The Good Angel and Bad Angel and also their respective bosses.
* GenkiGirl: Jennie, and some of the other women.
* GoodAngelBadAngel: Plus a Princess! The two are [[FriendlyEnemy Friendly Enemies]] at worst, and often concur on common issues (like [[AllWomenAreLustful attractive men]].)
* HearingVoices: Jennie and other people have a Devil and Angel on their shoulder, though Jennie is the only one with a Pink Princess to add to that.
* JournalComic
* LifeEmbellished
* LimitedWardrobe: Unless there's [[PlotPants a good reason not to]], Jen always wears a t-shirt depicting a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Labrys labrys]] (a double-headed axe that looks like the ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'' logo), denim shorts (changed to a tartan skirt around 2011) and big stompy boots with flame motifs. The author notes that Jen has solidified this way, while she's changed and become varied.
* LongRunner
* [[JesusWasWayCool Jesus Is Way Cool]]
* MagicalRealism: Jesus, the Devil or both appear now and then. Also one of Jennie's room-mates used to keep [[LordOfTheRings Legolas]] naked and locked in her closet.
* MagnumOpusDissonance: [[invoked]]The work Jennie pours love into isn't always the work people like best, [[http://thedevilspanties.com/archives/4402 as depicted here]].
* ManInAKilt: She likes them. More than that, she bought a leaf-blower to harass them, and then arranged to photograph willing volunteers for a calender.
* NeverHeardThatOneBefore: When someone asks Obby if anyone's ever told him he looks like Sayid from ''{{Lost}}'', he says "No, never" in SarcasmMode. He's actually cosplaying Sayid at the time ''because'' he looks so much like him.
* OpenMindedParent: Jennie's rather cool mom.
* PalsWithJesus: And also the Devil. Their appearances are now more a case of EarlyInstallmentWeirdness.
* PerkyGoth: Jennie's long-term friend "Happy Goth". Early on, probably Jennie as well.
* PunchClockVillain: Satan
* RealLifeWritesThePlot: Very much so, although exaggerated for comic effect and given an occasional surrealistic twist.
* RealWomenNeverWearDresses: [[invoked]] Starting out as a self-admitted "feminazi" (a reaction to her local environment), Jennie mellowed on this over time (and through meeting different people), and allowed her "inner princess" to come out. In the comic, this meant her angel and devil were joined by a pink-tutu-wearing princess in army boots.
* RougeAnglesOfSatin: Dyslexia-related problems with spelling meant that many of the comics have typos, and making an issue of it was a real BerserkButton for her. (There used to be an angry rant about it on the website, but it was dropped when it was redesigned.) They appear far less often in new comics, though.
* RunningGag: "Things Not To Say In The Bedroom" comics, which are also about giving the artist time off on the weekends. They appear on Saturday or Sunday, and consist only of solid black with a single word balloon with the joke in it.
* SeriesMascot: The angel and devil are the [[FaceOfTheBand face of the comic]], and do most of the promotional "See me at this convention" notices.
* ScheduleSlip: Ruthlessly averted in a way that could shame even ''Webcomic/PennyArcade''. Jennie has posted a comic (or a sketch, or something) almost ''every day'' since late 2001.
* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial: "[[http://thedevilspanties.com/archives/6368#comments Nothing!]] I ate nothing that fell on the floor."
** "[[http://thedevilspanties.com/archives/4470 I don't even OWN a panel van!]]"
* TheOneWith: ''{{Lost}}'' vs. ''[[GilligansIsland Gilligan]]''
