This comic is a bit of a spiritual sequel to an earlier strip. Can you guess which one? You don’t have to, it’s this one!

Region locks. PAL versus NTSC. Subs versus dubs. You know what this all is? Invisible borders! The world is not ready to be united; folks couldn’t handle that level of international harmony! People expect difficulty, they want things to go wrong. Even if they don’t realize it! Without little inconveniences, people would find bigger things to complain about. They’d scream. They’d set fires. They’d riot. We’d all turn into soccer fans if not for region locked DVDs. So I say, “Thank you, minor inconveniences, for keeping the world from falling apart.”
