• 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.

The comic would be a fairly typical story about urban twentysomethings engaging in witty banter and casual relationships, but also notes that several main characters are robots, who are perfectly able to have said relationships with humans. Notable cast members include:

  • Maura, alcoholic former porn star in (and out of) a long term relationship with him
  • Lil' Sis, caustic sister of Maura
  • Metal Steve, a Christian metalhead
  • Alle Vegetoksis, a neo-hippie and Steve's wife
  • Electron Mike, Apple fan with no social skills
  • Otakate, a blue-haired internet dweller
  • Indie Rock Pete, a Hipster with impressive misfortune
  • Red Robot, a machine with no respect for human life (except his girlfriend)

The comic is computer-drawn in a heavily pixelated style. Part of the Dumbrella syndicate, along with Bad Machinery and 'Overcompensating.
