''[[http://comicthecomic.thecomicseries.com/ COMIC the Comic]]'' is "a webcomic that's SoBadItsGood". Starring poor artist and comic creator Arial, ''COMIC the Comic'' features a lot of very silly stuff.
----
!!''COMIC the Comic'' provides examples of:
* AuthorAvatar: Arial. Technically, the other characters are also authors.
* GenreSavvy
* NightmareFuel: In-Universe. "AUGH. THIS WILL GIVE ME NIGHTMARES."
* NoFourthWall
* SelfDeprecation: Usually played straight. Subverted in one comic, when Arial claims that "I am the greatest artist of all time", directly underneath a really blurry enlargement of some previous art.
* TakeThatCritics: "You know what I'm going to say to that!?... I have no idea. I guess I'll just poorly draw a picture of a panda or something..."
* ThemeNaming: The main character's Arial. Other characters include '''Bold''' and ''Italic''.
