Iconic Street Fighter Artist Illustrates How the Internet Is Full of JerksEver notice how there's always people online who seem to know everything? That take pleasure in showing they know everything when they notice mistakes? And then others gang up, too? Maybe you are sometimes guilty of that. Maybe I am, too. Maybe that's the problem.


Akiman, best known for his Street Fighter art, does a good job of explaining this online problem in an illustration he titles "Internet".

Finally, another smiling character, wielding a sharp object, says "It's two, you idiot. Die!" Then the character who was wearing glasses screams in pain as he's stabbed.

And that is Akiman's take on the mob mentality of the internet. Agree? Disagree?
