Webcomic / The Oceans Of Tumblr

Go To

"There are no sane people."

On the 14th of August 2012 the webcomic The Oceans of Tumblr subtitled with "Wabbi's Adventure" launched on Tumblr in which the four Waddle Dees Wabbi, Viv, Crozee, and Kruger set out to the titular oceans of Tumblr. On their journey, they meet various characters from video games, anime, and whatnot. Some chapters are kind of heavy on one particular franchise, as in the third chapter Crozee mentions Gollum a lot and that one does not simply does something.
The comic is divided into chapters with twenty-one pages each and five panels per page and is, save for a few exceptions, in black and white.
One bonus page suggests that their former employer King Dedede sent them to explore Tumblr for him. Surprisingly it's rarely referenced that the characters are from Kirby, with Kirby himself having appeared only once and scaring Wabbi.


!!The Oceans of Tumblr contains examples of:
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: Viv on occasion
  • A Day in the Limelight: Kruger in Chapter five. In one strip he literally stands in a 'lime'light.
  • Canon Sue: In the fifth chapter there's Marian Héartan Dich Ylevol, complete with rainbow hair, super powers like 'purification sex' and no given backstory.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Viv.
  • The Everyman: Wabbi, as he's the most generic Waddle Dee of them all having no special traits in particular.
  • Funny Background Event: While Kruger thinks about why the others haven't returned yet, a mudkip farts.
  • Level Ate: In the fifth chapter Kruger decides to visit one called 'Candy Forest'. It's a little bit not what he expected.
  • Shout-Out: The female member from the anonymous Gang-on looks an awfully lot like a Gardevoir.
  • Wholesome Crossdresser: Crozee is actually male.
  • Advertisement:
  • Spell My Name with an "S": An anon discusses with Kruger how to write the latter's name. The outcome is 'Kryger', meaning either 'Warrior' or 'Cry-GAAH!'
  • Yaoi Fangirl: The Yaoi pirates in chapter one. Crozee as well.
