Far Out There is an often cute, sometimes-dark-humored ensemble webcomic by Simon Ladd. It's the comic where things happen... IN SPACE!!!
Tropes used include:
- Aliens Speaking English: Technically, there are no extraterrestrials, but everyone speaking English is still true.
- Author Avatar: Ichabod is occasionally accused of being this. The author denies it, saying he just wanted Ichabod to look like him to for cosplaying purposes.
- Brain in a Jar: Dr. Vanderslice has a whole room of them.
- Creating Life Is Awesome: Creating Bridget and Alphonse seems to have worked out pretty well for Tabitha.
- Cursed with Awesome: Avatar. Immortality and indestructibility sound great on the surface, but what good is Eternal Life when you have no life?
- Cute Mute: Bridget and Alphonse are incapable of speech, but otherwise intelligent. And definitely cute. So very cute.
- Divergent Character Evolution: Beyond hair and costume differences, it was almost impossible to tell Layla and Tabitha part earlier on during the "Mad science convention" arc, later changes had Tabitha go from the same teenybopper size as Trigger and Layla to being half again as tall as them.
- Does Not Like Shoes: Trigger, ever since he let the Jesus Freaks dress him.
- Doomy Dooms of Doom: "The Killer Station of Deadly Doom"
- Huge Schoolgirl: Tabitha. While her height changes a bit, it's usually accepted that she's half again as tall as Trigger and Layla, despite being only 1 year Layla's senior.
- Holiday Nonupdate: Averted to an absurd degree (especially at Christmas).
- Opaque Nerd Glasses: Ichabod's massive eye-wear.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: Alphonse's normally white eyes glow red when he's using his Technopath powers.
- Ragnarök Proofing: Avatar is the result of making a person Ragnarok Proof, in case the world ends.
- Serious Business: Ichabod makes a career out of it.
- Super-Strong Child: Bridget is a little zombie kid that comes up to an adult's knees if she stands on her toes, and yet she can lift a Doomsday device's outer metal shell with the kind of effort that you'd think it was filled with helium. and it'd have to be for her to keep her footing while carrying it.
- Teens Are Short: Played straight at first, although Tabitha (and only Tabitha ends up averting it, as a way to make her look different from Layla.
- Terraform: The explanation for all habitable planets.
