This is Fine is a two-panel image of an anthropomorphic dog trying to reassure himself that all is well, despite being in a room that is engulfed in flames. It was taken from an issue of the Gunshow webcomic series, illustrated by KC Green and published in early January 2013. The cartoon is typically used as a reaction image to convey a sense of self-denial or acceptance in the face of dire straits.

Origin[]

The comic originates from Gunshow comic #648, actually titled The Pills Are Working or On Fire and was originally published on January 9, 2013 by KC Green. Green's drawings were the basis for other memes including Staredad, Dickbutt, Mother of God and I'm okay with this. The comic depicts a dog in a room that is burning from the floor. The dog reacts calmly, even as he slowly melts from the heat.

Behind the Scenes[]

Adult Swim animated the comic into an interstitial short in 2016 and later that year Green published a sequel called This Is Not Fine on The Nib. This time, the dog finally admits that he has a giant problem and successfully puts out the fire before burning to death.
