Webcomic / Trope Overdosed The Webcomic
Trope Overdosed The Webcomic was
a webcomic devoted to this website. As of July 2013, however, its domain
The concept of the webcomic is simple: every strip is some sort of example of a trope. It could be any sort of playing around with the trope, including the characters simply explaining it while in a situation that involves it.
The main characters are Alice and Bob
It was made partially in Garry's Mod
and partially by way of drawings made by one of the author's friends since the author can't draw.
Its obvious goal is to reach Trope Overdosed
status, but that hasn't happened just yet.
