Today’s cartoon from Tom Gauld of “You’re All Just Jealous of My Jetpack” fame.

Storytelling, Western Culture Edition

Applies to around 95 % of popular books, movies, tv-shows, or video games before embellishment with light/dark descriptors.

(Meta bonus as this also applies to rationalizations in literature vs. genre / highbrow vs. lowbrow manifestos.)
