* Anime example: ''Doujin Work'' tells the life of a girl inspired to make dōjinshi with the assistance of her eccentric friends, only to face problems as a beginner. In the anime, one episode in fact details how the main character, despite improving somewhat, can only draw the same pose of her characters exactly the same for each panel. This becomes more so frustrating as she is supposed to form an erotic dōjin. [[CompletelyMissingThePoint In complete irony]], the comic sells [[SoBadItsGood because of how bad it is]].

Of course, without the skills to pull off those awesome Marvel graphics, you'll need to make up for it with an interesting premise, a well chosen setting and plenty of good jokes/drama. Believe it or not, [[TropesAreNotBad many do just that]].

-->'''Krixwell''': That said, in many other comics, copy-paste would look odd. Can you imagine a SpiderMan comic where everyone was in the same body position in each panel? I can, to some extent, and it looks ridiculous.

** This subclass - fixed-art strips - has seen a fair number of variations: for example, [[http://www.birdsworth.com/index.php Birdsworth]] (which [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] the premise [[http://birdsworth.com/daily.php?date=060519 early on]]) and [[http://www.webcomicsnation.com/ericburns/stark/series.php?name=stark&view=current The Adventures of Brigadier General John Stark]] by [[Blog/{{Websnark}} Eric Burns-White]] (nee Burns).

Added DiffLines:

* ''Two Party Opera,'' a political webcomic about all the American presidents, uses this pretty blatantly; all the Presidents have exactly one drawing of them, put into different settings and sometimes with the hands moved around. It's a shame since the artist is actually a pretty good caricaturist.


* ''DarthWiki/PowerupComics'' is a StealthParody of bad cut-and-paste comics, so it reuses art assets in the worst possible ways. Characters have (at most) two poses, and any other actions will either be bad photoshops of those poses (like a strip where [[http://www.drunkduck.com/Powerup_Comics/4968694/ Shadow uses a chainsaw]]--a hand holding a chainsaw was simply pasted onto the ''elbow'' of Shadow's generic, arms-crossed pose) or won't be shown at all (like a strip where [[http://www.drunkduck.com/Powerup_Comics/4968704/ Shadow and Chug say "High five" to each other]], rather than actually high-fiving). This also frequently results in characters' facial expressions looking nothing like the emotion they're allegedly experiencing (for example, [[http://www.drunkduck.com/Powerup_Comics/4968305/ Shadow crying over his ex-girlfriend]] while still wearing his default smug grin).

* ''[[http://www.rgbots.com RGBots]]'' uses the same limited set of panels for strips in different combinations, but has been known to do one-offs and add new panels into the comic from time to time.

{{Sprite Comic}}s are a variation on the CutAndPasteComic, as are most {{Pixel Art Comic}}s.

* ''[[http://www.ubersoft.net Help Desk]]'' is a CutAndPasteComic set in a [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial not-Microsoft-I-swear]] company's technical support department. The cut-and-paste style really becomes obvious in a CrossOver with ''[[http://www.gpfcomics.com General Protection Fault]]'', a more traditionally-drawn comic.

* ''Webcomic/HelloEarthling'' is pretty unashamed about being a CutAndPasteComic. New poses and backgrounds get added, but the three characters ambling around the same old same old seems sort of the point.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Webcomic/TheBirdFeeder'', generally every panel of each strip is identical, apart from the characters' mouth shape and eye position.


* ''[[http://revfitz.com Mr. Square Comics]]'' is based around apathy and randomness, so this was inevitable. [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/LampShadeHanging Lampshaded]] here: [[http://revfitz.com/issue193 issue 193]]

* An early example is DavidLynch's ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Angriest_Dog_in_the_World The Angriest Dog in the World]]''. It also consisted almost entirely of [[BeatPanel Beat Panels]]. For nearly ten years, it appeared weekly, always with the same art.
