Michael Poe's (Exploitation Now
, Errant Story
) new gag-a-day webcomic, starring Francesca (a college age wizardess) and her roommate, Naga (a, er, Naga).
Started at the beginning of 2011. Signs so far point to it being closer in tone to the first rather than the second of his previous series. Can be found — surprisingly — at http://www.doesnotplaywellwithothers.com
This comic provides examples of:
- Alt Text: Generally containing commentary and alternative punchlines or continuations on them.
- Barbie Doll Anatomy: Amusingly justified and lampshaded. See Nipple and Dimed.
- Comes full circle to an aversion in later comics, after the webcomic moved to it's own domain name: Naga loses her shirt in an Out-of-Clothes Experience and both Scenery Censor and Barbie Doll Anatomy are averted. Amusingly, the nipples go from a dot, to a undefined circle where the areola are, to being fully detailed over the next few strips.
- Even Evil Has Standards: Inverted. Falchion finds one of Tekmage's schemes to have such a low "evil" content that he just can't bring himself to foil it.
- Flying Broomstick: Fran's transportation method of choice.
- Idiot Hair: Naga's old design.
- I'm a Humanitarian: Naga. It's ok, though, as she eats pedophiles she meets online.
- Innocent Fanservice Girl: Naga again — she has no nudity taboo, is actually outright opposed to the idea of wearing clothing, and only wears shirts because her contract includes royalties on any shirt designs they help sell.
- I Thought Everyone Could Do That: See Nipple and Dimed.
- Jerkass: Par for the course for a Micheal Poe comic. Naga's the worst offender of course.
- Mad Scientist's Beautiful Daughter: Janis. Subverted, see Samus Is a Girl.
- Nipple and Dimed: Naga's are retractable!
- Not Safe for Work: Heavy profanity, some nudity, violence, sacrilege....
- Only Sane Man: Seth, most of the time.
- Out-of-Clothes Experience: Naga.
- Pay Evil unto Evil: Naga eats people. This is played up for horror... until she reveals she's been eating pedophiles she meets online and tricks into meeting up with her. That doesn't exactly make it ok, but the other characters can't bring themselves to get her to stop.
- Please Put Some Clothes On: Francesca to Naga over the course of the first few strips.
- Rape as Drama: Discussed here.
- Samus Is a Girl: Tech Mage.
- Sarcastic Confession: Quite knowingly used here. And the Alt Text is related to a another trope...
- Scenery Censor: The original filler comics from Errant Story used this and lampshaded it. Later strips avert it.
- Unsound Effect: John Johnson, the muscle wizard, attacks with a Ka-Fist!
- Urban Fantasy: Major characters include a Wizard, a Naga, a Vampire, an Elf, a Superhero, and a group of alien geeks.
- Villain Has a Point: On at least two occasions, Falchion has found Tekmage's goals so sympathetic that he didn't really want to stop him. On one of them, he actually did take a dive and let Tekmage succeed.
- Well-Intentioned Extremist: Tekmage's actual ideology seem to be nothing more sinister than mainstream American liberalism. It's just that he pursues it by means of killer satellites and mind control rays...
