The B-Movie Comic
is based on a long, proud history of So Bad, It's Good
movies. It mostly follows the exploits of a Ragtag Bunch of Misfits
who have thus far been engaged in fighting mummies and zombies
(though this story-line appears to be mostly concluded, we'll have to wait and see what comes next). This does change a little bit when a lot of the main characters disappear /die
for a large chunk near the end of this arc, only to be replaced by another set of mistfits, who promptly disappear when the originals came back from the dead.
The originals include Professor Dr.
, Biff Boffenheimer
, and Mopey
The B-Movie Comic provides examples of:General tropes
- The Chew Toy (Lee, who plays Snuka)
- DVD Commentary
- No Budget (the director is aplty-named Nolan Nobucks)
- Obvious Stunt Double: The central joke is that it's recreating B Movies in all their cheesy, low-budget glory. Part of this is the variety of behind-the-scenes bonus comics, explaining how they accomplished the numerous stunts and special effects. Turns out that Snuka's underpaid Chew Toy actor Lee does his own stunts, and everyone else's stunts, regardless of how little he looks like them.
- The Rant: One of the major interests of the comic. Without it, many of the visual jokes in the page would be lost.
- Special Effects Failure: In-Universe.
- Stock Footage: Whenever the director thinks he can get away with it.
- The "Professor Dr. discovers a dead body" scene has become such too (though the third time it's another character played by the same actor).
- Stylistic Suck: lots of it.
Tropes in the first movie "Revenge of Rutentuten":
Tropes in the second movie, "Attack of the [Description withheld in order not to spoil the surprise]Angels.":
Note: The actual
title is revealed at the end
(SPOILER!) to be Attack of the invisible zombies from outer space
Tropes in the third movie "20,000 leeks below the surface of the ocean":
Tropes in the fourth movie "Earth vs. Uranus"
- Alien Invasion
- As You Know
- Dirty Communists
- Dumb Blonde: Biff's current girlfriend, Bustimena Cuntessa Putasestupida, aka Busty, is on the same intellectual level as him.
- Fake Real Turn: The good guys set up a fake poll to get information from the henchmen, and when Prof. Dr. notices they have almost enough data to make it a real poll (and get credit for the university), he decides it would be a waste to stop now.
- Gag Boobs: Busty's chest is her most important feature (and gets more screentime — and lines — than her head).
- Middle Management Mook: Dr. Ray Infinity Kobras.
- The Other Darrin: Prof. Dr. (well not exactly: it's still the same actor, but they're no longer bothering with the heavy makeup, so the effect is the same).
- Recycled Set: The Silhouette Mountain set.
- Red Herring
- Sequel Escalation: This movie has a mountain 81 times as tall as Silhouette Mountain.
- This Is No Time to Panic: This page and the next one, when Prof. Dr. states whose disappearance is or isn't cause for panic.
Tropes in the fifth movie, "The Verraderlijk Plot of Dr. Dutchman Fu"
