The Splendid Magic of Penny Arcade
The 11 1/2 Anniversary Edition
> open book The book is now open. > read book Entitled The Splendid Magic of Penny Arcade, it details the history of a comic strip called Penny Arcade. The comic appears to catalog the lives of two young men who are utterly steeped in popular culture. Each chapter gathers into a coherent beam of savory trivia, strange facts, formerly mysterious origins, biographical information, interviews, inaugural conventions, an unlikely charity, and comic strips. You get the sense that some of the content may be apocryphal—for example, the part where they eat a whole wolf basically comes out of nowhere. Also, if one of them really did become “King of the Britons,” you’re sure you would have heard about it somewhere else. > close book You close the book and place it back on the shelf. Maybe next time.
Be Good, Little Puppy
A Penny Arcade Book
“WHO DARES DISTURB THE CRYPT OF THE IMMORTAL SPACE BITCHES?” 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 seventh Penny Arcade collection. Inside you’ll find • Every full-color Penny Arcade strip from 2006—along with all-new, supposedly insightful commentary from the genial creators! • Sixteen pages of brand-spanking-new bonus material that’s not to be missed! • The Sorcelator! • And more, from the New York Times bestselling alteregos of those gaming-obsessed, pop-culture hellions Gabe and Tycho!
