The answer may very well be here—along with blatant abuse of Nerf weapons, highly questionable pizza toppings, murderous exploding penguins, shopping-mall zombie mayhem, the ponderous ponderings of Twisp and Catsby, and the libidinous juice machine that shall remain nameless (at least on the book cover)—in the sev

Sometimes the best review you can give a book is a quote from the book itself.

For example:

“Don't say another goddamn word. Up until now, I've been polite. If you say anything else--word one--I will kill myself. And when my tainted spirit finds its destination, I will topple the master of that dark place. From my black throne, I will lash together a machine of bone and blood, and fueled by my hatred for you this fear engine will bore a hole between this world and that one. When it begins you wi
It's hard to give a cohesive review to the Penny Arcade collections, since you're really just looking at a snapshot of a year in the life of the webcomic. This volume, like the last, falls within my favorite years of Penny Arcade's run, and includes the launch of the Nintendo Wii (before anybody knew about the coming impact of casual gaming on the industry) and the hilarious layered meta-satire, Song of the Sorcelator.

For some reason, it felt like the included bonus material wasn't quite as subs

When I was younger, I used to dabble more with console gaming. We were a Nintendo family and we owned everything from the original Gameboy to the WII. There was also a brief period where we owned a SONY and we used to gather around, taking turns playing Wonderboy. Video games were a communal event in my childhood, believe it or not. However, as we got older and things got cheaper & smaller, we started to break away to play our own. My brother would still host raucous parties where the boys w ...more

Do not be deceived by this cutesy cover of Tycho and Gabe having fun with a puppy and butterflies, for within these pages lies tales of damnation and lust; whatever you do, don’t let a child get ahold of this book . . . and for those who are already familiar with the unforgettable and endlessly entertaining comic know as Penny Arcade, then this cover works as an excellent camouflage for the sordid-laughter-inducing artwork within its pages . . .

Be Good, Little Puppy is the seventh volume from Je
Unless you are a major geek like me, you have no idea what Penny Arcade is. If you do know what Penny Arcade is, you will have probably already read this book. Penny Arcade is one of the most-read online comics, especially for video game enthusiasts. If you play videogames or even create videogames or work in an industry related to videogames, you read Penny Arcade as a matter of course. Where ESPN is the daily stop for sports fans, Penny Arcade is the daily stop for video game enthusiasts and n ...more

Going through the Penny Arcade books has been a blast of gaming nostalgia. This book covers 2006. The recent launch of the 360, and the imminent release of the ps3 and wii, the birth of casual gaming, a new "trend" called DLC, the shift in which consoles began to take the form of "media centers" and more. All with their trademark ruthless wit.
The year was 2006...and gaming was good. The newest book to the Penny Arcade series is quite good. My pre-order came with a poster. I only wish the pre-orders were autographed. I'll bring it to PaxEast and see if I can get it signed then.
***Dave Hill
There's not a lot to distinguish this collection of the 2006 PA strips from other collections, before or after. They're funny, often witty, frequently mordant, regularly scatological or otherwise NSFW, and quite enjoyable.
Nick Douglas
Every Penny Arcade strip from 2006, with new 2011 commentary on each strip by the writer. Picked it up at the Housing Works Bookstore Cafe.
Wait, The Land of Upp was about Eric Burns???

I don't really play video games. It's not that I haven't, or can't (although I'm not very good at them). I just don't. (Also, the fact that we haven't been able to afford a new system since the PS2 may play a factor in here.)

And yet, I read Penny Arcade. And although I rarely know exactly what they're talking about, I generally have enough absorbed nerd knowledge to get them. And sometimes, they make me laugh until I'm sore. I don't think this is the best collection, though. Previous ones I've e
Another delightful entry. Relive the unveiling of the Wii and Penny Arcade's conversion to the Mac.

It's Penny Arcade. You either love it or you don't.

I love it.
Another awesome collection of the always funny, Penny Arcade comics.
Reread on a whim; 2006 was one of their really solid years.
Possibly one of my favorite years of the comic.
It was worth it just for "I Hope You Like Text".

Keith Gerald "Jerry" Holkins is the writer of the webcomic Penny Arcade. Holkins goes by the pseudonym "Tycho Brahe." This is also the name of one of the two main characters of Penny Arcade, who is a cartoonized self-insertion of Holkins. However, as the character of Tycho was not originally meant to represent Holkins, the two have few physical similarities; for example Holkins is bald, unlike Tyc ...more
