I’ll give you a second to sink your teeth into the delicious irony on display above. Take as long as you need.
Are you satiated? Okay. BitStrips are monstrosities. They are ugly and trite and we do not like them. They are as simple and thoughtless as memes, but lower quality.
The main problem I have with them is that they cheapen a medium into which we have collectively expended an significant amount of effort. We are swiftly approaching 300 comics, and each one is like a little baby to us. A little baby that we often want to forget the next day, sure, but these things take more energy than the BitStrip’s one panel, one line, and crappy art tends to imply.
