College Roomies from Hell!!! or CRFH!!! as it is known to fans, is a webcomic strip by Maritza Campos-Rebolledo. It started January 1, 1999. Since 2010 it updated only sporadically and went on hiatus between January 2, 2012 and March 30, 2012, when irregular updates resumed. College Roomies from Hell!!! depicts the lives of six college students attending an unnamed college somewhere in the United States. Forced out of their dormitory by a gas leak explosion, Mike Green, David Jones, Roger Pepitone, Marsha Hart, Margaret Browning, and April Sommers now live in an apartment building near their college and suffer natural, supernatural, and academic indignities and drama in this alternately humorous and dark serial comic strip.

College Roomies from Hell!!! was formerly hosted by Keenspot. Its author, Maritza Campos-Rebolledo, is a resident of Yucatán state, Mexico. The comic is part of the Create a Comic Project.[1]

Characters[edit]

Funky horror[edit]

Funky horror is a meme within this webcomic, its audience and its forum. The phrase "The horror! The funky horror!" is one of the catchphrases in the comic – adapted from the last lines of Francis Ford Coppola's film Apocalypse Now: "The horror... the horror...", which in turn was adapted from Joseph Conrad's novel Heart of Darkness.

Awards[edit]

CRFH has been nominated for and won several Web Cartoonist's Choice Awards.
