Typical Strange is a webcomic that follows the adventures of six friends. The characters ostensibly work at The Movie Pit (or at the nearby Mall or the pizza place...plus Penelope), but often spend their time undertaking bizarre adventures.
It was created by Banes and began in 2011.
There are occasional animated episodes which predated the comic and can be found here: Typical Strange - The Site
Typical Strange includes examples of the following:
- Abhorrent Admirer:
- Penelope for Oscar. Although she's one of the series leads and portrayed sympathetically.
- Oscar for Harley. Again, portrayed sympathetically.
- A more straightforward example: Abigail and TK both had Abhorrent Admirers in the Hillbillies who wanted to marry them in issue 4.
- TK and Rooster were both groped by Crazy Annie, who smells of pee.
- Wade is this occasionally: To Abigail, to Greta, and several times to Penelope. This series loves this trope.
- Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Penelope
- Deadpan Snarker: Most of the characters.
- Genre Savvy: TK believes he's been kidnapped by a sexy KGB agent. When he learns she's an assassin, he says that's an even worse cliche.
- Halloween Episode
- Love Dodecahedron: Signs of this show up pretty regularly.
- Mistaken for Badass: In the issue "POP Goes the World", Kristiana the assassin is drugged and comes to believe that Oscar is a ruthless undercover killer as well.
- The Slacker: Oscar, TK and Harley, and sometimes Penelope.
