This is the Worst Idea You’ve Ever Had! (usually just “Worst Idea” or TWIYEH) is an urban fantasy comic set in the fictional college town of River’s Crossing, Virginia. It follows a group of twenty-somethings as they navigate every day life in the city and deal with relationships, magic, and the occasional monster.
River’s Crossing is home to SouthSide Virginia Technical University, a local public university with a focus on science, and more specifically the study of magic since its discovery here in 1979. Since then the school and the city have become one of the most magical places on the Earth’s surface. There is a high rate of mutation among newborn children here and rumors of monsters roaming the city at night are common. Despite that the local government and most of the residents behave as if nothing has changed at all. Or at least any change that has occurred is considered something bad and not to be discussed in polite company.
