"Templar, Arizona is a webcomic written and drawn by Charlie "Spike" Trotman...

Trotman describes it as "a story about a town, and the people who live there", specifically referring to the city of Templar as a character and not a setting...

Templar has been praised for its natural and humorous dialogue, the strength of its character design (both visually and in personality), the depth of its setting, and for the quality of its art. Its writing has a unique style, with distinct speech patterns for each of the cast members. Some of the setting's fictional elements... have been mistaken by readers for real things they haven't heard about before.

The fictional city of Templar exists in a subtly different alternate universe. Trotman describes it as "a slightly irregular Arizona that fell off the back of a truck somewhere, and now all the power outlets are a weird shape and a couple of wars never happened". This city is most strongly marked by its fictional subcultures (many of which are veiled commentary on real ones), as well as its unusual architecture and fashion. However, it lacks any fantasy or science fiction elements, which suggests that the comic is closer to the alternate history genre."
