Webcomic: Listening To 11.975 MHz aka: Listening To 11975 M Hz
Listening to 11.975 MHz is a Webcomic started in December 2002 by Ethan Forsythe.And it's ... really weird. It's about a girl (whose name is never given within the comic but Word of God says is Deco Bleu), and her, um... adventures in a very surreal dream world.The comic is filled with obscure references (especially to shortwave radio), and the comics sometimes contain messages to the author's friends. These are incomprehensible to anyone else.It can be found here(currently down).
Art Evolution - As in most webcomics, the art gets better and better as the comic progresses, with a particularly noticeable shift when the shading style changes. Another trend is how Deco seems to be looking younger and younger.
Bilingual Bonus - Averted; while the comic uses a myriad of languages (see below) all of them are apparently nonsense aside from the references, which are always in English.
Bilingual Dialogue - Multilingual would be more accurate; between Deco's French, Lunchbox's Chinese, Fussy Britches' Portuguese with occasional Italian, whatever the white-haired devil speaks, the English used by signs and assorted one-off characters, and the calculus equations used by Caboose, this trope is present in spades.
The white-haired devil's speech in at least one strip seems to be Dutch/Flemish. Elsewhere she seems to speak Greek, or at least in Greek letters. Sometimes itís Dutch/Flemish written in Greek.
And starting here, a floating mouse-like creature (with a distinct resemblance to Pikachu) speaks Catalan.
Word of God - The characters' names have recently been clarified. For reference, Deco is still Deco, "Lun Che Box" is just Lunchbox, "Fuzzy Pants" is Fussy Britches (her daughter is Antithesis), "The Girl who Speaks Math" is Caboose, and finally, the succubus/minister who shows up from time to time is named Elsepeth.
