    First of all, a disclaimer if you do not know that it is, this is most probably not for you The comics deal with issues of gaming, mostly computer and console Penny Arcade is very well known in these circles, which means that even if you have a passing interest in the subject you must have heard about them thus the disclaimer.The biggest problem with the comics other than required knowledge of the subject is that it does show its age The first book talks about games released between 19 First of all, a disclaimer if you do not know that it is, this is most probably not for you The comics deal with issues of gaming, mostly computer and console Penny Arcade is very well known in these circles, which means that even if you have a passing interest in the subject you must have heard about them thus the disclaimer.The biggest problem with the comics other than required knowledge of the subject is that it does show its age The first book talks about games released between 1998 and 2000 by the rate the gaming industry moves, it is practically the age of dinosaurs Case in point at one point they praised the early 3 D graphics which by modern standards looks VERY ugly.I played some of the games they reference, and even in my case I do not understand quite a few of the jokes Fortunately, they have comments for every single comic which is a required read Unfortunately, some of the comments go along the line, I really have no idea that this comic is about Well, neither do I as a reader I also do not agree with their position on some of the issues in gaming Still, there are some diamonds in the rough, enough of them to warrant 3 star rating

    I m just glad I got this as an ebook in the Humble Bundle deal, and didn t actually shell out full price for a physical book Admittedly, I m not a gamer, but I m enough of a long time geek that very few of the references were lost on me They just weren t funnyand usually, not even mildly amusing Of course, already being familiar with the authors through their unfortunate tendency to needlessly, unapologetically, and even proudly enable themisogynistic aspects of modern gamer culture I m just glad I got this as an ebook in the Humble Bundle deal, and didn t actually shell out full price for a physical book Admittedly, I m not a gamer, but I m enough of a long time geek that very few of the references were lost on me They just weren t funnyand usually, not even mildly amusing Of course, already being familiar with the authors through their unfortunate tendency to needlessly, unapologetically, and even proudly enable themisogynistic aspects of modern gamer culture the Dickwolves incident, for example may well be coloring my opinion of their work

    It is hard to believe that Penny Arcade has been around for over ten years now I didn t get hooked on the web comic until about three to four years ago I m glad that the comics are coming out in print now so that I can learn the history of the e comic The series follows the lives of two gamers, Gabe and Tycho They have some funny moments sharing the thoughts and experiences about games and the tech industry in general If you don t follow video games you might not get this book at all The b It is hard to believe that Penny Arcade has been around for over ten years now I didn t get hooked on the web comic until about three to four years ago I m glad that the comics are coming out in print now so that I can learn the history of the e comic The series follows the lives of two gamers, Gabe and Tycho They have some funny moments sharing the thoughts and experiences about games and the tech industry in general If you don t follow video games you might not get this book at all The best one in the collection was the comic that Mike Krahulik drew to propose to his then girlfriend

    While it s their start out strips it s still hilarious, it has my favorite strip in it that is absolutely immature, but it s all in good fun Also, I m still a sucker for the proposal in it, it seems to be the only way to do a public proposal and have it not be embarrassing, though still extremely cheesy and cute If you know nothing about gadgets, gaming, or that culture there is no point in reading this, you won t understand the jokes.

    wow, it s amazing to see what 1999 and 2000 looked like through this lens I wasn t there for the beginning but close enough to remember some of these what a weird trajectory for these guys.

    Note The time this was read one might deduce is BEFORE the print date of the book but NOT before the first run of the strips, starting in 1999 I started reading PA back in the day So don t get all Jim Cameron chronological on me Chill.I remember seeing my first PA strip sometime in college round two I remember commenting Wow, this art is rudimentary and forgetting about it for a little while The occasional nugget would pop up after that A hysterical reference to Pac Man would appear Note The time this was read one might deduce is BEFORE the print date of the book but NOT before the first run of the strips, starting in 1999 I started reading PA back in the day So don t get all Jim Cameron chronological on me Chill.I remember seeing my first PA strip sometime in college round two I remember commenting Wow, this art is rudimentary and forgetting about it for a little while The occasional nugget would pop up after that A hysterical reference to Pac Man would appear That kid was f ed up when I met him , or Spiderman would guest star Oh Spiderman, you re so STRONG and then they started in with jokes from games I actually played That piqued my interest.Soon I was a regular reader Eventually, I came to check it every day, not just for the strips, but for the posts by the authors under their pseudonyms Gabe and Tycho I still go there like a devotee I go there withregularity than I do a house of worship.In retrospect, I see the same thing going on with the art stylings that I see with my own art or with other cartoonists Look at Jim Davis for instance The original Garfield strips were a crime against art They were pretty ugly But as time moved on, the art got cleaner,stylized I wish I could say the same for Garfield s content The art for Penny Arcade is now just that art Crude, vulgar, insulting art most days see the fruit molesting kitchen appliance that features as a regular , but hey, I like that kind of thing, potty humor is hysterical Gabe is also arguably the best color strip comic artist on the webcomic scene.While this book is a collection of their first forays into webcomics, the content is what sells it, kind of in the same vein of South Park It s not the art in this case it took some time for the strip to come into its own stylistically , but the spirit of two guys who had just started hacking out their place in the webcomic scene s nascence If they keep penning them, I ll keep buying them

    There is swearing in this review I m sure most of you don t care, but I normally avoid it So it s hidden, not for spoilers, but for language view spoiler In this case, however, given that I m reviewing a Penny Arcade book, I m going to claim it s a fucking homage, or some such shit.This book is not David Copperfield.This assertion may seem fairly plain to most people, but I m making the comparison for a reason See, I always have a book I m rereading in the bathroom For the last several mon There is swearing in this review I m sure most of you don t care, but I normally avoid it So it s hidden, not for spoilers, but for language view spoiler In this case, however, given that I m reviewing a Penny Arcade book, I m going to claim it s a fucking homage, or some such shit.This book is not David Copperfield.This assertion may seem fairly plain to most people, but I m making the comparison for a reason See, I always have a book I m rereading in the bathroom For the last several months, and for the foreseeable future, it has been and will continue to be David Copperfield I m making my way through it at a snail s pace And loving it My husband, on the other hands, prefers graphic novels to huge weighty tomes for his bathroom reading He is, perhaps, thesensible one Mostly, I skim through the graphic novels, but stick with David Copperfield Then he brought this book into the bathroom, and even though I ve read it half a dozen times before, its siren song lured me away.For one thing, David Copperfield is fucking heavy Not in terms of content The book itself is almost a thousand pages long, and some mornings, the prospect of breaking my arm picking it up just to read a few pages didn t seem the most appealing prospect in the world And there Attack of the Bacon Robots sat, with its jokes about video games, which I mostly only get from context, but find funny anyway, and jokes about bloody mayhem, and that shit is frequently hilarious Now, this is early Penny Arcade, so it s not quite as funny as some of their later comic strips, but there is still some funny stuff in there.And some days, it beats David Copperfield all to hell hide spoiler

    I can t really rate this book four stars without a major disclaimer to my friends if you don t have at least a passing knowledge of video game history and gamer culture, most of the humor in these comics will be lost on you and you ll be faced only with a confusing array of crass gags, volatile language, and cartoon violence But if you are in the know, you probably already agree with the webcomic reading masses that Penny Arcade is one of the greatest modern comic strips ever, and that Jerry H I can t really rate this book four stars without a major disclaimer to my friends if you don t have at least a passing knowledge of video game history and gamer culture, most of the humor in these comics will be lost on you and you ll be faced only with a confusing array of crass gags, volatile language, and cartoon violence But if you are in the know, you probably already agree with the webcomic reading masses that Penny Arcade is one of the greatest modern comic strips ever, and that Jerry Holkins and Mike Krahulik are a massive credit to geeks everywhere and rightfully rule the webcomic world.This book traces the beginning of PA, and thus Gabe Mike s art is still rather amateur by professional standards in this volume and some of the strips fall flat which I don t really hold against them it takes time to find your form, and when doing three comics a week you re always going to take risks, some of which don t work Each strip is accompanied by a short explanation or commentary by Jerry, which is a delight because the man is a veritable god among wordsmiths This, of course, doesn t come through nearly as strongly in these short blurbs as it does in Jerry s longer and wittier news posts on the PA website, but creator commentary is never a bad thing.All in all, this was a good beginning
