Dustpit Follies

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

Dustpit Follies is webcomic about three friends, Francis, Jeff, and Joe, and what they do in the patio they rent out. Most strips end in a joke, but there are a few ongoing story lines.

Tropes used in Dustpit Follies include:
  • Atlantis- Fran's harddrive is Atlantean, which he bought from a flea market for 10 bucks. It's actually an Atlantean escape pod
  • Author Appeal- A few of the comics are pretty much just endorsements for US Congressman and former presidential candidate Ron Paul.
  • Bigfoot, Sasquatch, and Yeti- Bigfoot shows up as the punchline in one comic.
  • Christmas Episode- It takes a break from the main plot to do a new version of Twas the Night Before Christmas
  • Cranky Landlord- When the rent's due he'll hound you till you pay, even if that means breaking a hole in the roof to drop in.
  • I Know Mortal Kombat- His vast experience playing video games makes Francis an excellent gunner on an alien spaceship. It also helped him learn to pilot the ship, though poorly.
  • Orphaned Series- The author hasn't updated it since March 2010.
  • Take That

Joe It won't do anything I want it to do. I must have a virus or something.
Francis That's not a virus, that's Vista.
