I swear this never happened before.

"For years have my people been oppressed, silenced and even slain for being who we are! Still today we're treated like monsters, and hunted down savagely because of such narrow-mindedness!
...And I'm pretty sure a few of these movie rentals are overdue."

My Middle Name's Adventure is a webcomic created by Leo Modesto and Alex Medina (written by both, drawn by the former) and hosted as part of their website, DOUBLEPUMA.com. The comic follows the adventures of a boy and his pet rock who set out to live grand adventures in a whimsical fantasy land. They meet all sorts of people and creatures along the way, from TV-loving dragons to bridge-controlling mobster trolls.

The comic's main gimmicks are a quasi-retro aesthetic that mimics handheld game systems of old (though it's not a video game comic per se) and its use of Flash content to, among other things, allow the reader to name the main character. The comic has occasional animated and full color strips as well - complete with 8-bit sound effects.

Being rather new (the website launched on February 1st), there are few characters, such as:

  • "The Hero", also known as Alex, also known as John, or whatever. His goal is to become the greatest hero of his time - although he may not be the most qualified for the job. Gets in and out of sticky situations constantly as such.
  • Amed, the hero's trusty pet rock and best friend. Does not speak, but shows slight signs of sentience. His facial expression is a constant "o 3o".
  • Tim, the hero's other friend. Also an adventurer, although one with lesser ambitions (Well, sorta). Carefree and simple, he doesn't seem to mind the fact he's not very competent at what he does and tries to just have fun instead.
  • Lina, an apprentice mage who's looking for the chosen hero who'll fulfill a prophecy she doesn't quite know.
  • Winston, a dragon the hero attempts to slay, but who turns out to be an okay guy who loves TV and fried chicken, and dislikes humans' stereotypes of dragons as ruthless monsters.

  • The Troll Mafia, which is Exactly What It Says on the Tin. Their leader is known as the Godtroll.
  • Angry Germans, who only got a brief mention but seem rather vicious. May or not have perfected dragon technology.
  • Office Worker Pixies, who, like Winston and dragons in general, break the stereotypical definition of pixies as partying individuals.

Currently, the strip updates twice a week, on Mondays and Wednesdays.
