THERE ARE FOUR LIGHTS, people!
Like that star trek reference, soon too, the joke behind the color scheme of this comic will fade out of immediately accessible public knowledge. So I will offer my summery for reasons of posterity:
Once upon a time, someone took a bad picture of a dress. The color of the dress, as the picture showed it, was black and blue; however, because the picture wasn’t of great quality, it was possible to see the dress as being gold and white (when one compensated for things like poor exposure/white balance/etc in HOW they saw the colors… Kind of like if you have a blue car infront of a sunset, it’ll still look like a black silhouette.). People fought about this relentlessly for a WHOLE WEEKEND. Brother fought against brother; father against son. I think a few countries disbanded…. It was the apocalypse.
I have made this comic to pay my repsects to those who fell in the great “what color is this dress” internet flame-war of early 2015, knowing full well that the people of mid-to-late 2015 won’t remember the controversy of the dress at all, nor the lessons we as a species learned about respecting those we disagree with, nor any of the lives that the flame-war tragically claimed.
And also, to try and exploit the Black-blue Gold-white hashtags while they still are being searched, though i may have missed that bus by a week.
