"The Horrifying Experiments of Dr. Pleasant!" is a low rez pixel art comic on the WEB! A heartwarming tale about the titular Doctor, his assistant Gale, and all the new friends they make. (quite literally!)

It can be found here or here and also here.

The comic provides examples of:

  • Alphabetical Theme Naming: Most characters' first names begin with different letters of the alphabet.
  • Artificial Human: Armando was created to be irresistible to women, but is mostly just stuck in the midst of an existential crisis.
  • Artificial Limbs: Isabelle has a robotic pelvis, legs, left arm, left eye, and a tail to boot!
  • Bathos: Most of the humor comes from mundane situations and the first awakening of revival subjects is usually silly, but that doesn't change the fact that they had to die in the first place.
  • Color-Coded Characters: Most characters feature a color heavily in their design. This color fills their respective text boxes too, which is convenient for when characters are talking out of panel. Colors are as follows:
    • White - Dr. Pleasant

  • Shout-Out: Dr. Wright is a clear reference to Dr. Light. But he's kind of a jerk.
