Now I know that you have heard it all before, and I know that you have been back to that dry well until you have emerged drier than a butt that you have wiped with this comic. I know. But lets take a closer look, shall we?
First of all what is this all about?
BECAUSE I GUESS I DON'T EVEN KNOW
(I might know)
(but this one I'm not so sure...)
Anybody who has an explanation is free to comment, because in this blog I believe in freedom.
Anyway, on the subject: Penny Arcade. Who drew this? A circus? I mean, it's one thing to be a circus performer and another thing to be a guy who works at the circus but does not perform (pocorn seller?) The penny arcade guys pull out every trick in the book, though. Every sungle trick. (I spelled single wrong on purpose)
Here's a recent example:
OK, it seems to make sense at this point. I mean, you win that argument. But lets take a good strong look at what we get if we move in for a closer look...
Are you starting to see what I mean? It's almost scary, but I don't like to think about it. But when we get even closer of course the questions start to get a little bit more personal...
I think that I've made my point clear. If I haven't, then let me break it down:
- Penny Arcade is not a true story and cannot claim to be based on true events.
- Penny Arcade comes out three times a week with another "strip"
- THEREFORE Penny Arcade has an unrealistic concept of time and place.
The Art: At least it's American. I'm tired of all these dogs who try to draw but every time they draw a collar they just raise questions. It's not like this happens automatically.
The Writing: I've read a lot of things. Books, pamphlets, brochures, bulletins, power point presentations, newspapers, closed captioning, street signs, antique store signs, articles, magazines, plaques and baseball scoreboards. None of them were like this.
And that's really all I have to say, because this is starting to piss me off. Don't read Penny Arcade. You'll only encourage Penny Arcade to keep on being itself and giving me more to get pissed about.
