About

The Fanart vs. The Canon Interaction refers to an exploitable webcomic strip depicting how fandoms often create over-detailed fan art based on simplistic character interactions. The comic strip was posted on Twitter / X in late May 2024, inspiring netizens to share versions of the one-panel strip that fit the "fan art vs. canon interaction" comparison featuring characters from video games, anime and cartoons.

Origin
