Tropedia

  • 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.

Lizzie and Alice

Dead Winter is a (mostly lighthearted) webcomic chronicling the Zombie Apocalypse from two points of view: Lizzie, an English major college student working as a waitress, and Badass hitman Black Monday Blues. Monday becomes involved in a vendetta against his former employer, while Lizzie simply tries to survive; eventually the two story arcs merge. Other members of the cast include the optimistic medic Alice, Lou the fat Italian plumber, and Lizzie's Jerkass of a former employer Frank. Secondary plots (mostly in the chapter epilogues) include Lizzie's fiance Trevor, and her cat Cuddles.

You can find it here.

Tropes used in Dead Winter include:

  • What Do You Mean It's Not Awesome?: Page 300.
    • For further amusement; the author does those animated .gif comics every 100 comics. No. 100 was Monday defending himself from a bad crew in an amusingly badass fashion, while no. 200 was Monday demonstrating why one does not fuck with him. In both cases, pretty damn badass and with explosions. For no. 300, no gunplay, no explosions, just Liz presenting Monday with his bill.
  • A Worldwide Punomenon: Alice wasn't listening because:

  • You Shall Not Pass: Trenton, but Monday successfully pulls one off against Frank and lives to tell about it.
  • YouTube: Page 473 has the Alt Text "KQMBz6HvSoM".[2]
  • Zombie Apocalypse: Duh.
  • Zombie Infectee: One who's actually competent and at terms with her condition. Unfortunately, she does eventually turn and has to be killed.
    • Averted in the case of Stacy, but this wasn't enough to convince Chantelle. Stacy was last seen going up to the roof of the building, with the door is now sealed from her side. Eventually it is revealed that she escaped to the streets and met up with Cuddles.
  1. The "T-zone" in shooting is formed by the line from the outside of one eye socket to the outside of the other, and the line down from there to the upper lip — a successful shot to this area basically causes the target to collapse like a puppet with its strings cut.
