''[[http://www.thebookofbiff.com/ The Book of Biff]]'' is a one-panel WebComic written and illustrated by Chris Hallbeck. It details the mis-adventures of Biff, a human-like being with a bizarre mouth and intense eyebrows. Updated every weekday, the comic is unique in that Biff never speaks, and no explanation is ever given to the origin of Biff, his strange powers and gadgets, or the fact that he's apparently Immortal.

Tropes:
* ArtEvolution: Just compare [[http://www.thebookofbiff.com/2006/01/02/4/ some]] of the [[http://www.thebookofbiff.com/2006/01/04/6/ older]] [[http://www.thebookofbiff.com/2006/01/06/fan/ strips]] to [[http://www.thebookofbiff.com/2010/09/22/1117-crumbled/ some]] of the [[http://www.thebookofbiff.com/2010/09/21/1116-fall/ newer.]]
* AwesomeButImpractical: Probably one of the more understated examples is Biff's [[http://www.thebookofbiff.com/2007/02/02/182-stick/ electric walking stick]].
* BaldOfAwesome: Biff has no hair.
* BloodlessCarnage: Biff can be dismembered or otherwise hurt in many different ways without a single drop of blood.
* BodyHorror: Lots.
* BottleEpisode: The entire series is, in a way, considering that one of the explicit limitations of Biff's universe is that no other humans characters will ever be seen or heard. Most strips take place within Biff's home.
* BrainBleach: Biff literally dips his brain into [[http://www.thebookofbiff.com/2012/02/24/1484-blanked/ bleach]].
* BunglingInventor: Biff, frequently.
* CrossOver: One April 1st gag involved Maximumbler, Chris Hallbeck's other webcomic, and Biff switching main characters for a day. They became Biffmumble and The Book of Max, each using certain elements of the other (IE Biff's surreal humor in 3-panel form. Maximumble with a cynical scene complete with caption)
* ConvectionSchmonvection: Averted [[http://www.thebookofbiff.com/2010/02/05/954-radiant/ recently]], where he melts into a puddle next to lava, as to be an [[InvertedTrope inversion]]; reader comments joke that Biff appears to have been previously made of cheese or vanilla ice cream. (See: UnexplainedRecovery below)
* CompanionCube: While Biff never interacts with other people objects are a different matter. For example his toaster is on more anti-depressants than he is.
* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment: "Biff's two favorite kinds of birds are the crow... and the crow again."
** Fanon states that the Crow Again is a bird of prey of unknown origin that feeds on chickens and farmers' wives.
** The point is [[DontExplainTheJoke that he can't find any other birds.]]
* DisembodiedEyebrows: Biff's eyebrows are more like antennae than anything.
* [[InvisibleParents Invisible Cast]]: Anyone who Biff interacts with is either off screen, or has left prior to the events in the panel.
* MythologyGag: There's no story to speak of in the Book of Biff, but comics sometimes reference each other to form something like Canon. For instance, every comic taking place in Biff's office will show that Biff still owns the Impossibly Complex Chair.
** Biff also owns a yellow rocket with red fins, that he flew into space multiple times.
* NegativeContinuity: {{Mythology Gag}}s aside, very little in the Biff universe has long-term ramifications. Which is to say, nothing.
* TheRant: There is always a paragraph of musings below each comic that mostly serves to tell of a similar experience that happened in the author's own life.
* RuleOfFunny: The best explanation for Biff's origin, strange powers and gadgets, and immortality.
* SadistShow: And this is why. The only thing more common in the comic than surrealism is Biff getting cartoonishly maimed.
** Of course, the fact that Biff always reacts to his injuries with apparent indifference allows readers to feel better about laughing at his pain.

* SpinoffBabies: An entire week of young Biff and the crazy shenanigans [[http://www.thebookofbiff.com/2009/04/06/735-onager/ he]] [[http://www.thebookofbiff.com/2009/04/07/736-congreve/ did]] [[http://www.thebookofbiff.com/2009/04/08/737-clinker/ as]] [[http://www.thebookofbiff.com/2009/04/09/738-cannonball/ a]] [[http://www.thebookofbiff.com/2009/04/10/739-gelato/ kid]].
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Spaghetti.
** To the point that his family gets him spaghetti themed objects because they have no idea what he likes.
* UnexplainedRecovery: Many comics show Biff being mutilated in hilarious ways, including having his skull caught on fire, having his head and torso eroded away, wearing Jellyfish Sandals, or getting mangled by crawling inside a box fan. By the next day he is always completely healed, just in time to be mauled in some new way.
* UnusualEyebrows: Each of Biff's eyebrows seem to be made of a single long, thick, and rigid strand of hair.
* WorldOfWeirdness: Bizarre and outlandish things are presented in a matter-of-fact manner.
* TheVoiceless
