Webcomic / Woo Hoo
is a weekly full-page comedy webcomic by Molly "Jakface" Nemecek and J.R. Boos. The short stories of Woo Hoo! follow a small ensemble cast through adventures in Port Metro, a vibrant Pacific Northwest metropolis.
- Alt Text: On every page.
- Arch-Enemy: Raj has been pursuing Rhiys since before the story. However, Rhiys also claims the mysterious Sam as his nemesis.
- Chase Scene: Raj and Rhiys, styled as a dotted-line adventure similar to The Family Circus.
- Cowboy Cop: Although he's just a security guard, Raj seems to be one of these.
- Curious as a Monkey: Cody.
- Deus ex Machina: Lampshaded (with a pun, no less).
- Fish out of Water: Jolee. Also a Country Mouse and Na´ve Newcomer to the city, although she seems pretty weird herself.
- French Jerk: Antoine, a restaurant Maitre D', is as snooty as they come, even though he's some kind of cave-dwelling alien.
- Implacable Man: Raj seems to be one of these. He survives a nuclear explosion with no apparent injury.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Amy and Raj, so far.
- Karma Meter: Karma Points are a 'cryptocurrency' encouraging citizens to do good deeds (with good and bad results).
- Law of Conservation of Normality: Despite the bizarre things going on in the first chapter, it's really about the normal problem of making friends in a new city.
- Le Parkour: Rhiys is a master of this.
- Parody Names: Seemingly every instance of a Bland-Name Product is played for a joke and logo parody.
- Meat Versus Veggies: Rhiys and Jolee.
- Mood Lighting: The entire comic is mood lighting, mostly bright and neon.
- Mundane Fantastic: Port Metro is full of wacky exaggerations (explosive hamburgers, alien creatures / cultures, underground cave restaurants). Nobody except Jolee, a newcomer, treats any of these as unusual.
- Odd Friendship: Jolee and Rhiys.
- Perky Goth: Amy Fang, star of an earlier comic called Dead Metaphor, is basically this. Also a Metalhead.
- Shout-Out: Numerous Disney movie shout-outs dot the first chapter.
- Slice-of-Life Webcomics: Allowing for the weirdness of the world, Woo Hoo! is basically one of these.
- The Cameo: Full of these. Many extras are pulled from the creators' previous works. Also, Devin Townsend is apparently the Mayor.
- The City: Port Metro seems to be a blend of Vancouver and Seattle. It is also City of Adventure, or at least Rhiys sees it as one.
- Underground City: The Subterrain. A significant amount of the story takes place Beneath the Earth.
- Unsound Effect: Raj is introduced with one of these.
