Webcomic: Dinosaur Comics

Can be found here.

This comic contains examples of:

  • Fan Fic: The subject of this strip. You kiss in my story.
  • Fetish: For T-Rex, it's entropy decreasing in a closed system.
  • Flat "What.": To the point where other web cartoonists will attribute its invention to Ryan North.
  • Floating Advice Reminder: On the "About" page of the site:
    About Interacting Socially: This can be tricky! You want to be friendly, but you don't want to come on too strong. My best advice is to carefully observe others, and to relax!
  • Friends with Benefits: Whatever is between Dromiceiomimus and T-Rex has inklings of this, but even they are not really sure about the state of their relationship.
  • Furry Reminder: Every now and then we get a reminder that these characters are, in fact, dinosaurs.
  • God: Only T-Rex can hear him. He speaks without punctuation, in all-caps, and is something of a ditz himself.
  • A God Am I: T-Rex swaps places with God for about 2 minutes, until God forces them to swap back after realizing much to his disgust that T-Rex's mouth tastes like T-Rex spit.
    • And just when T-Rex had figured out the controls too >:|
  • Great Way to Go: When something is sad—like death—but also awesome—like an arrow managing to hit something not even the size of a quarter when dropped randomly from a plane—it is sawesome.
  • He Who Must Not Be Seen: Every member of the cast aside from T-rex, Utahraptor, and Dromiceiomimus, to varying degrees.
  • A Hell of a Time: In Hell you can play video games and do whatever you want, but you have to sing songs with all the lyrics replaced by "party".
  • How We Got Here: Parodied in this strip, which begins with T-Rex discovering that everybody died. It then flashes back three weeks earlier, where we find T-Rex... discussing about charging MP3 players with his friends. The last panel ends with a message appologising that they went so far back that the events that led to everybody dying haven't started yet, ending with "LISTEN, THANK YOU FOR READING MY COMIC TODAY".
  • Insane Troll Logic: "Dinosaurs lived in the past, so they evolved into cats."
  • Just Testing You: God asks T-Rex where wind comes from, and then defends himself: "UM OF COURSE I KNOW I JUST WANT TO SEE IF YOU DO"
  • Kick Me Prank: Instead of 'kick me' T-Rex wants to plant a sign that says 'kiss me'.
  • Lampshade Hanging (every once in a while, a joke about the parameters of the comic, eg here or this one lampshading the lampshading.) This was explained/parodied in this strip, also from the "Literary Techniques Comics" series.
  • Tempting Fate: Subverted in this strip. In the past, T-Rex has had parties ruined by God, which led to embarrassment with the ladies.

later: i confess that i write comics by just filling a binary file with about 65k of 1s and 0s and somehow it ALWAYS WORKS
