Penny Arcade is among the most popular webcomics currently online,[1] and it hosts both a children's charity (Child's Play) and a gaming convention (PAX) each year. It debuted on November 18, 1998 as a regular feature on the web site loonygames.[2] The authors launched their own site in late 1999, and new comic strips are usually posted every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

The strip regularly features the two authors' cartoon alter egos, Tycho Brahe and Jonathan Gabriel ("Gabe"), who represent Holkins and Krahulik respectively. Holkins and Krahulik have explained that the characters were not originally meant to represent them, thus they are not caricatures. The decision to have the characters represent the authors was made very shortly after the series began, and the fact that they didn't at all resemble them has been explained with some ire at one point. The two characters spend much of their time playing and commenting on computer and video games, forming the basis of the humor in the strip. Another theme, albeit less common, is the use of conflicts between the two in real life. The strip also sometimes refers to other Internet subcultures, and often features in-jokes that are explained by the news posts accompanying each comic, usually written by Holkins.


Both Krahulik and Holkins make a living from Penny Arcade, placing them in a very small group of web comic artists devoted to their creations full-time. Originally, Penny Arcade was supported solely by donations. A graph on the main page indicated how much people had donated that month. After hiring Robert Khoo as their business manager, Holkins and Krahulik switched to a different income stream based on advertising and merchandise revenue alone. According to Holkins, the website handles more than two million pageviews daily (excluding forum traffic).[3] On 2005-11-13, the website was given a face lift[4] in celebration of their seventh year running and to match the designs of the Child's Play Charity and Penny Arcade Expo websites. Robert Khoo is the Director of Business Development of Penny Arcade, but is also referenced as the Business Manager for the company and the Show Director for PAX, the largest consumer gaming show in the United States. ... “Advert” redirects here. ...

Attributes of the comic strip

Penny Arcade satirizes Wikipedia with Skeletor vandalizing the He-Man article

As a (primarily) topical video gaming news comic, there is little plot or general continuity in Penny Arcade strips. Any story sustained for longer than a single strip is referred to as "dreaded continuity", something of a running gag in the newsposts. A character who dies a horrible, violent death in one strip will come back in the next, perfectly whole, though occasionally these deaths have an effect on later comics. For example, often, when Gabe kills Tycho or vice versa, the killer takes a certain Pac-Man watch off the dead character, but only if he currently has the watch. Profanity and violence are common in Penny Arcade and the strip is known for its surrealism: zombies, a talking alcoholic DIVX player, a robotic juicer that has sex with fruit (the Fruit Fucker 2000), and Jesus, among others, are known to drop in often and for petty reasons. Other such occurrences are implied, if not shown, such as mentioning Dante from Devil May Cry living in the building next door.[5] However, the comic does occasionally expand into more serious issues; one even had Krahulik, in the guise of the character Gabe, proposing to his girlfriend of two years.

Some of the strips are drawn from the perspective of fictional characters within a game or movie. Occasionally, Gabe and Tycho are featured as they would be as characters or players in the game themselves, often having some sarcastic remark to make about some feature or bug in the game. A software bug is an error, flaw, mistake, failure, or fault in a computer program that prevents it from behaving as intended (e. ...

Protagonists

Jonathan "Gabe" Gabriel
Mike Krahulik's comic alter ego is energetic and free-spirited, but has a propensity to become extremely angry. He has a Pac-Man tattoo on his right biceps,[6] as well as a tattoo in honor of the demise of SNK on his back.[7] He almost always wears a yellow Pac-Man shirt, and in one comic he joked about having a glass eye, no other references to it have been made.[8] He has a fascination with unicorns, a secret love of Barbies and is a dedicated fan of Spider-Man and Star Wars. He practices line dancing with the Kansas City Hotsteppers.[9] He is a diabetic, though he continues to consume large quantities of sugar products.[10] He has an odd affinity for a cardboard tube which he had fantasies of wielding as a wandering samurai, often in ancient Japan. He was for a short time addicted to Tribes but soon grew out of it. He also has an obsession with his own genitalia and possible latent homosexual tendencies.[11][12][13][14] This theory can be supported by a recent recurrence of Gabriel's 'personal' interest in actor Patrick Swayze[15]. As a contrast to Tycho's expansive vocabulary, Gabe usually speaks using only simple, common words.
Krahulik named his son "Gabriel", in honor of the character.[16]
Tycho Brahe
Jerry Holkins' comic alter ego (named after the astronomer Tycho Brahe) is bitter and sarcastic. Almost invariably clad in a blue-striped sweater, Tycho enjoys books, RPGs, large words and deflating Gabe's ego. According to himself, he erodes the very soul of humanity as a hobby[17]. He is a rabid fan of Harry Potter. He also often plays Dungeons & Dragons (the website's banner illustrates him holding a 20-sided die). Though extremely insensitive, he has on several occasions made reference to his scarring childhood in which his mother physically abused him[18] and blamed him for his father's leaving due to his body "swelling with evil"[19] (in fact, puberty), as well as his parents taking him on a family road trip to such places as Idaho's largest "shitfarm".[20] It has been mentioned that one of his aunts, believing him to be gay, constantly sends him homoerotic material.[21] Tycho also has a drinking problem.[22] After a dream, Tycho is seen to be host to an evil spirit, signified by his eyes glowing red when it comes to the fore;[23] this theme is repeated over the course of the strip. Recent strips have also revealed that he may have an unhealthy sexual obession with long animal necks: at one point, he believes that his wife has found giraffe pornography on his computer, and he calls their necks "slender."[24] A more recent comic, a commentary on alleged spyware in Battlefield 2142, depicts players being shown ads relevant to the content of their computers. Gabe's ad is for a Martha Stewart product, while Tycho's is for badboysbigbirds.com - "Big Heads in Deep Holes" - and depicts an ostrich with its head buried in a hole.[25] Tycho is also the host of "Too Damn Late with Tycho Brahe."[26] Though originally co-hosted by Gabe, "Too Damn Late" appears to have been reworked because of Gabe's difficulty controlling his body near guests.[27] [28]

Podcast

Krahulik and Holkins began to record and release audio content on March 20, 2006, titled Downloadable Content. The podcasts specifically capture the creative process that goes into the creation of a Penny Arcade comic, usually starting with a perusal of recent gaming news, with conversational tangents and digressions to follow. As well as being a behind-the-scenes look at the creation of Penny Arcade, Krahulik and Holkins discuss possible subjects for the comic. An orange square with waves indicates that an RSS feed is present on a web page. ...


The format of the show is mostly "fly-on-the-wall" style, in that the hosts rarely acknowledge the existence of the microphone. There is no theme music (not even the aforementioned "Penny Arcade Theme"), intro, or outro. The podcasts are of varying lengths, beginning abruptly and ending with the idea for the current comic.


Although the shows were initially published weekly, Holkins stated in a May 2006 blog post[29] that they have found difficulties when trying to produce the podcasts on a regular basis. The duo planned to keep recording podcasts occasionally.

Among the reasons he listed for Penny Arcade's accepting the job was that he and Holkins are both fathers and are concerned about the games their children might play. He also stated his belief that the alternative to the ESRB would be governmental regulation of the video games industry.

Legal troubles

American Greetings

The censored parody

Krahulik and Holkins were sent a cease-and-desist letter by American Greetings Corporation over the use of American Greetings' Strawberry Shortcake and Plum Puddin' characters in the April 14, 2003 Penny Arcade strip entitled "Tart as a Double Entendre". The strip was intended to mock the works of American McGee, after McGee's design for a dark version of the Cowardly Lion character from The Wonderful Wizard of Oz was released by McFarlane Toys. Krahulik and Holkins portrayal of Strawberry Shortcake as a dominatrix was intended as mockery of the fact that McGee took beloved characters from children's books, such as Alice from Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland,[44] and turned them into dark characters not fit for children.

Krahulik and Holkins chose not to enter into a legal fight over whether or not the strip was a protected form of parody, and complied with the cease-and-desist by replacing it with an image directing their audience to send a letter to a lawyer for American Greetings.[45] Afterwards, a comic portraying American Greetings as Nazis was released without legal repercussion.[46] National Socialism redirects here. ...


Jack Thompson

On 2005-10-17 Krahulik and Holkins donated $10,000 to the ESA foundation in the name of Jack Thompson.[47] Earlier, Thompson himself had promised to donate $10,000 if a video game was created meeting certain criteria (See: A Modest Video Game Proposal),[48] but after a vaguely similar (in spirit) mod to the game Grand Theft Auto was pointed out to already exist, Thompson called his challenge satire and refused to donate the money,[49] despite the fact that he had explicitly stated that the offer was genuine in a follow-up interview. His refusal was met with disdain, given that multiple games were created or in the process of being created under Thompson's criteria. Krahulik and Holkins donated the money in his place, with a check containing the memo: "For Jack Thompson, Because Jack Thompson Won't".

Thompson proceeded to phone Krahulik, as related by Holkins in the corresponding news post.[50]


On 2005-10-18 it was reported that Jack Thompson had faxed a letter to Seattle Police Chief Gil Kerlikowske claiming that Penny Arcade "employs certain personnel who have decided to commence and orchestrate criminal harassment of me by various means".[51][52] Holkins defended the site by saying that the harassment Thompson referred to was simply "the natural result of a public figure making statements that people disagree with, and letting him know their thoughts on the matter via his publicly available contact information".

On 2005-10-21 Thompson claimed to have sent a letter to John McKay, U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Washington, in an attempt to get the FBI involved. Thompson re-iterated his claims of "extortion" and accused Penny Arcade of using "their Internet site and various other means to encourage and solicit criminal harassment".[53] Penny Arcade denied the charge of "extortion", noting that they paid the $10,000 to charity, and are asking nothing in return.[54] Year 2005 (MMV) was a common year starting on Saturday (link displays full calendar) of the Gregorian calendar. ... is the 294th day of the year (295th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Thompson claimed the harassment of him is a direct result of Mike Krahulik's posts, which listed links to The Florida Bar Association. Thompson accused Penny Arcade of soliciting complaints to the Bar against him, even though Krahulik actually posted the opposite, asking fans to cease sending letters to the Bar, as the Bar acknowledged that it is aware of Thompson's actions, thanks to previous letters.[55] The Florida Bar is the third largest mandatory state bar in the United States. ...


The Seattle PD eventually acknowledged receiving a complaint from Thompson, but have commented that they believe the issue to be a civil, rather than criminal, matter. They noted that this was from initial impressions of the letter they received, and their criminal investigations bureau is reviewing the letter to make sure that there were not any criminal matters that they missed.[56]


On the same day, Scott Kurtz, creator of the webcomic PvP and a longtime friend of Krahulik and Holkins, used the image of the letter Thompson sent to the Seattle PD to create a parody letter in which Jack attempts to enlist the aid of the Justice League of America by claiming Gabe and Tycho to be villains of some description.[57] For PvP in multiplayer computer role-playing games, see player versus player. ...

On 2007-03-21 Thompson filed a countersuit to the lawsuit brought against him by Take Two Interactive claiming that they are at the center of a RICO conspiracy. Penny Arcade was named as one of the conspiracy members[58][59]. At Sakura-Con 2007, Krahulik announced that the charges had been dropped.[60] Year 2007 (MMVII) is the current year, a common year starting on Monday of the Gregorian calendar and the AD/CE era. ... is the 80th day of the year (81st in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...
