Unreality is a webcomic created by Kiyan Shahab. It started on November 19, 2017, and updated on an inconsistent yet frequent basis until Shahab announced its cancellation in 2019. Unreality is a slice-of-life comedy that centers around three teenagers living together in a recovering apocalyptic future.
The series takes place in the surprisingly nice post-apocalyptic year of 0377AE, and revolves around a Trio of teenagers,a jaded, overworked 18-year-old woman named Monica, Dominic, a rambunctious 14-year old boy who while not related to Monica by blood, is still unquestionably her brother, and Sarah, Dominic's cheerful and eccentric 16-year-old girlfriend. The series is a gag strip involving all sorts of humorous happenings the trio finds themselves in.
While the comic isn't necessarily NSFW, it does have a consistent air of lewdness throughout so be wary of that.
This webcomic provides examples of:
- Art Shift:
- A Date with Rosie Palms: is alluded to in Strip 007
- Bathtub Scene: Strip 008
- Black Is Bigger in Bed: in Strip 016, Monica jokes about this, much to Dominic's chagrin.
- Blood Brothers: Strip 032 features a horrifically failed attempt at this from Monica.
- Comically Missing the Point: Monica ends up doing this in Strip 008
- Conditioned to Accept Horror: Monica's everyday life is already so ludicrous, that she is Relieved when Strip 33's events occur.
- Make-Out Kids: Definitely the case with Dominic & Sarah!
- Pool Scene: Strip 026
- Reference Overdosed:
- Strip 010 makes mention of a dangerous steroid. In the form of a bag of spinach.
- Strip 013 makes an incredibly direct reference to The Artist At Sea from Spongebob Squarepants
- in Strip 017 Dominic imagines himself, Sarah, and Monica, becoming Chris, Quagmire, and Peter
- this supplementary image should speak for itself.
- a certain series' title cards are referenced in Strips 016 and 026
- in Strip 021, The Trio are watching Evil Dead 2, and Monica seems to be rather irritated by a visit from a Sewer Clown
- in Strip 023, Ultraseven makes a cameo, although not the most glorious of ones.
- in Strip 028, The Trio has a run-in with a rather familiar Killer Rabbit.
- Strip 029 has references to Kikaider, Ultraman, and Avengers: Infinity War all within the same strip!
- In Strip 31 Dominic ends up incurring an Unstoppable Rage within Monica, visualized through a reference that made it safe to say, that Dominic Wa Shock.
- Strip 34's reference should honestly go with out saying.
- Stylistic Suck: Strip 019? is made entirely with basic geometric shapes in MS Paint.
