Here I witnessed the birth of the Cardboard Tube Samurai. The Tube is Civilisation! Plus, I love Penny Arcade.

A charming collection of the penny arcade comics from 2002. I suppose with "all new commentary!". which is kind of odd. i prefer the extended current(original) commentaries. but i love them both.

the agony of too much love!
ahhhhhh!

i was hoping the alternate commentaries might hit the nail more directly on the head for some of the stranger jokes. ie, spell-it-out. pain-full-y. but no suck luck.

... i meant to type "such" in last sentence. but the typo has become too powerful to edit.

anywho. i main...more

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 these four books. 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 enthusiast...more

This, I think, is where Mike/Gabe and Jerry/Tycho really hit their stride. Collecting strips from 2002, this third print volume of the brilliant web-comic dates to a time when readers had come to know fairly well what to expect each week from the duo, and you either loved it to death or it wasn't your thing. Gabe and Tycho's abilities were solidified, as was their presence - game publishers beware, because if they got lazy they were damn well going to hear about it. This is also the last of thei...more

2002 of the Penny Arcade strip. I think the year in games themselves may have been a bit less remarkable than year(s) before and years after. It was pre-current generation consoles. I think the humor tends to be more consistently funny and more sophisticated than the earlier years. Still a work, writing and art, in progress. For the curious, the cardboard samurai origins can be traced back to 2002.

Truly a good vintage. Fantastic year for PA. Great commentary and additional artwork.

Carrot cake soup is like the taste of watching girls make out.

You want to get some hard cocks? I mean, dinner?

Claw-Shrimp.

And Inexpressibly hardcore badgers.

The first appearances of Mr. Period, Frank the Gamestop Manager, the cardboard tube, the Fruit Fucker 2000, and we learn all about Claw Shrimp and how to make Carrot Cake Soup. Oh yeah, it was a good year for Penny Arcade.

I always enjoy these collections. It's fun to revisit the old comics, and Tycho's commentary makes it feel a bit like he's reading them with you.

You read the other two reviews already, didn't you? Go back to the review for The Attack of the Bacon Robots, it says it all. Meh.
Mike
Great webcomic about the big inside joke that is the world of video games. Each book in this series is better than the last.
Ross
The origins of the Cardboard Tube Samurai are so humble. Guys, who would win in a fight: Cardboard Tube Samurai or a Claw Shrimp?

Penny Arcade makes me realize just how much of a geek I really am.[return]

[return]And I love it.

I continue to find this series amusing and entertaining.

I do love Gabe and Tycho. (But mostly Gabe.)

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
