My tumblr and Twitter feed are filling up with a new “Fuck you, Trudeau” meme. Webcomic authors & fans alike (myself included) are feeling a bit miffed at Doonesbury’s apparent flipping of the bird to online comics, today.
Now, I love Doonesbury. I also love newspapers. I don’t want print media to go away. That said, saying it’s the only way (especially for comics) is just plain insulting, and reeks of elitism.
All due respect to Gary Trudeau, whose work I adore and respect, but this strip represents an archaic, narrow-minded, elitist mindset.
