Webcomic: Woo Hoo
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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Schedule Slip - It's supposed to update weekly but there've been delays here and there.
  • 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.
  • Unsound Effect - Raj is introduced with one of these.
