Webcomic: Even in the Deepest Heart of Chaos... A Glimmer of Order Can Be Found
Even in the Deepest Heart of Chaos... a Glimmer of Order Can Be Found is a comic composed of random photographs.Every strip has been generated by inputting a keyword into a script and getting a set of six random photos off Flickr. The author then added text to the panels in an attempt to weld the photos into a (semi-)coherent narrative. The results vary from the strained to the fascinating.The comic ended with the 500th strip in 2008; full archives are available. The author went on to create a different webcomic, Tiny Ghosts.
Even in the deepest heart of chaos, a glimmer of tropes can be found:
- GIS Syndrome: The entire concept.
- Guest Strip: So much that there's an entire section for them, since they can be easily generated via a script.
- Long Title: The webcomic as a whole.
- Mars Needs Women: "Ring"
- One-Word Title: Each comic has a single word as its title—namely, the keyword used to generate it.
- Nonindicative Name: The keyword rarely tells you what the story will be about.
- Photo Comic: Sort of.
- The Secret of Long Pork Pies: "Slab"
