First off, the description is about twice the length of the examples. And getting down to brass tacks, the trope seems to be... a parody of an adventure genre. I'm not sure, to be honest, but that's the closest I can get.
The name is obviously a takeoff of Cosmic Horror Story
, but I don't quite know how they relate. Really seems... nonsensical to call it Cosmic. From the description, the Cosmic comes from the fact that the work is about the high stakes of the potentially mundane situations.
Alternatively, (especially with the Futurama picture) it seems like it might seem like a comedy series set in space. Which it is not.
14 wicks total. Examples are all parodies of various adventure genres, but their individual descriptions don't seem to indicate any particular common thread between them, other than "Yep, this work is silly."
Honestly, I say we axe it altogether. Parts of it are already covered by Parody
, and other elements are covered by World of Weirdness
and the YKTTW Zany Fantasy
