Superline (sometimes stylized as SUPERLINE!) is a webcomic written by diddle-ex-machina on Tumblr that began updating December 3, 2017. It follows the FDR Memorial High School Marching Bands drumline and drum majors after they discover that they have superpowers. As of May 19, 2018, the author chose to put regular updates of Superline Volume 1 on hiatus, and instead jump ahead to work on Volume 3. The beginning of Volume 1 can be read here.
Tropes used in Superline include:
- How Do I Shot Web?: It takes a LOT of time and training for the line to get their powers under control enough to even keep them hidden.
- Life Embellished: The author of this comic was in marching band herself, so the events and characters are based on her own experiences (with a few minor changes).
- Magic Meteor: At the beginning of the comic, the line gets their powers after discovering a mysterious space rock in the middle of the woods.
- Wake Up, Go to School, Save the World: A decent chunk of the comic takes place at school, although the line's school day is often interrupted by missions.
- Webcomic Time: Superline's events take place over the course of several marching band seasons (about three months each), but since the comic itself only updates bi-weekly, when it is off hiatus it updates year-round.
