My Comic Strip Asks: What Happens With Your Donations to Bitmob?

This post has not been edited by the GamesBeat staff. Opinions by GamesBeat community writers do not necessarily reflect those of the staff.

Dan Hsu and Demian Linn started this site in the hopes to foster something new and exciting on the internet and the costs of doing so come out of their pocket. If you think that American Apparel and the "It's Pantytime!" ads help cover the costs, you would be mistaken. Many of us donate to help the site grow and stay afloat. But where do our donations go? What exactly do donations pay for and who receives our digital dollars?

Hopefully this comic will help shed some light on the situation. Read on, to discover the truth.


Who paid for this?!

An underling approaches

A demon is summoned

Dallas finale redux


Oh, no! A terrible tragedy! My investigative journalism turned up the fact that Demian and Dan could use more of our help. Wouldn't you, the community, like to see Dan's dreams come true? Would you not also like to see this site grow to realize the true potential it holds? If you answered yes to either of those questions then I urge you, Donate Today!

Full Disclosure: In no way is this a solicitation from anyone affiliated with Bitmob. I was not asked to write this by anyone from Bitmob. My motivation for this comic was simple: I'd like to see Bitmob grow.
