Parting Shot: The Webcomic Blackout to Protest SOPA
As Wikipedia and the popular aggregate site Reddit blacked out today to protest SOPA/PIPA, numerous webcomic creators joined them, replacing their usual LOLs with information and resources about the controversial legislation that Harvard Constitutional Law professor Lawrence Tribe called “The end of the Internet as we know it.” ComicsAlliance joins them in opposing SOPA, and encourages you to inform yourself about the bills and to reach out to your legislators and let them know how you feel.
We’ve compiled a brief list of participating webcomics, including MS Paint Adventures, xkcd, Nedroid, Dinosaur Comics, The Oatmeal, Cyanide & Happiness, Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal, and Wondermark.
