Webcomic: The Horrifying Experiments of Dr. Pleasant!
Business as usual.

"The Horrifying Experiments of Dr. Pleasant!" is a low rez pixel art comic on the WEB! A heartwarming tale about the titular Doctor, his assistant Gale, and all the new friends they make. (quite literally!)

It can be found here

The comic provides examples of:

  • Added Alliterative Appeal: Gale alliterates a lot. The comic where Cathy gets revived shows her getting irritated at this.
  • Artificial Human: Armando was created to be irresistible to women, but is mostly just stuck in the midst of an existential crisis.
  • Artificial Limbs: Isabelle has a robotic pelvis, legs, left arm, left eye, and a tail to boot!
  • Blaxploitation Parody: Luscious Black. He's the boldest, blackest character in fiction.
  • Blob Monster: Kilo. He's fond of attractive human females and doesn't produce solid waste.
  • Color-Coded Characters: Most characters feature a color heavily in their design. This color fills their respective text boxes too, which is convenient for when characters are talking out of panel. Colors are as follows:
    • White - Dr. Pleasant
    • Red - Cathy
    • Green - Gale
    • Blue - Amanda
    • Gold - Armando
    • Orange - Joselyn
    • Yellow - Beatrix
    • Chartreuse - Francesca
    • Turquoise - Elvira
    • Light Blue - Dr. Wright
    • Indigo - Dr. Hope
    • Magenta - Isabelle
    • Maroon - Na'dlehee Lupu
    • Grey - Koko
    • Black - Luscious Black
  • Cute Monster Girl: The primary comedic setup is the Doctor reviving a girl and Gale hitting on them.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Amanda's inability to feel emotions means "deadpan" is her only choice in delivery.
  • Emotionless Girl: Amanda came back wrong and lost her emotional capabilities.
  • Giant Enemy Crabgirl: While Cathy is a normal sized girl, her crab claw is almost as big as she is.
  • Harping On About Harpies: Joselyn has wings on her back, feathered arms, and bird legs.
  • Hulk Speak: Kilo displaying the "fine, articulate speech you can expect from the average person."
  • The Igor: Far more hideous than a hunchback, Gale is an obnoxious dudebro.
  • Little Bit Beastly: Beatrix's only visible bee parts are her antennae... And her compound eyes.
  • Mad Scientist: Natch.
  • Mushroom Samba: Comic 17 where subject A-2.14 has flooded the compound with drugs.
  • Opaque Nerd Glasses: The shading on Dr. Pleasant's glasses at least show which way he is looking.
  • Our Werewolves Are Different: The goddess Na'dlehee Lupu is shown transforming into a wolf-like creature.
  • Plant Person: Subject A-2.14, which also happens to emit a powerful hallucinogen. May or may not actually be "Alive and stuff."
  • Shout-Out: Dr. Wright is a clear reference to Dr. Light. This Doctor makes sex robots though.
  • Snake People: Francesca, who comes complete with forked tongue, wild hair, and plenty of sass.
  • Sssssnake Talk: Francesca does this when she is teasing people and/or has been drinking.
