  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

A darkly humorous webcomic by Lee Adam Herold documenting since 2000 the single-panel exploits of Butch R. Mann, a hockey mask-wearing serial killer who is equal parts "Jason Voorhees, Hannibal Lecter, Norman Bates, and Ziggy." Most of the humor of the strip comes from taking typical horror and slasher tropes, then bringing them to the most ludicrous possible applications. The strip is notable for both its gag skill in Crossing the Line Twice, and its unique gray-toned art style that is both inked and sponged before being scanned into the computer.

Definitely not for kids, as the subject matter swings freely from Dead Baby Comedy to Gallows Humor to Black Comedy and all steps in between. However, if you're in the mood for a little walk on the darker side of the mind, this is the panel-strip for you.
