    I like to imagine that the gap between Friday's comic and today's comic is in real time.

    Where does the fact that "Chewbacca would have been taken from Kashyyyk when he was very young" come from?

    Chewbacca is a grown wookie on Kashyyyk during episode 3, Revenge of the Sith where he helps Yoda escape. AFAIK, there is nothing in Star Wars lore to suggest he was taken from Kashyyyk before this.

    This assumes Gabe has watched and/or respects the canon of the Prequel Trilogy.

    This feels like a weird role reversal from Tycho's constant zoophilia leanings. Coming soon: Episode 3: Space is Seriously Still the Place: Man is the Real Monster

    I think he just assumes that because Chewie was a slave when Han met him that he was grabbed as a little wookie.

    Someone link that comic where they're talking about that wookie's tree trunk penis so we can really delve into the logistics.

    Chewbacca was born on Kashyyyk in 200 BBY, the son of Attichitcuk. During his early years Chewbacca lived on Kashyyyk, but unlike many other Wookiees who rarely left the planet's lush forests, Chewbacca was consumed by an overpowering sense of adventure and exploration. Chewie's first travels were to the remote and dangerous lower levels of Kashyyyk's immense forests, the Shadowlands. It was not long before his travels took him far from the confines of his green homeworld. His heart, however, remained on Kashyyyk, and Chewie would always try to make it home for the holidays.

    When Chewie was in his younger days, before he had reached 100 years of age

    I didn't know he was that old.

    Oh..PLEASE make one more mentioning "Han lovingly running his fingers through Chewbacca's chest hair" afterwards. I just want to see Tycho shudder like we do when he mentions some of his proclivities in the sexual arena.

    This also reminds me of my friends faces when I point out my theory that Jar Jar and not Anakin is the chosen one but George Lucas whiffed the swing when he overdid how klutzy and grating Jar Jar was.

    A Truly Remarkable Circumference.

    Also, don't forget that Gabe likes to suck milk out of "wookie straws".

    Not a weird reversal, really. Tycho likes the long, graceful necks. Giraffes, ostriches, maybe an occasional swan or emu... It's all about the neck.

    Now look at the wookiee. Does it even have a neck? Probably, I mean it's an arboreal mammal and all, but under that hair it's hard to be sure. If there is a neck, it's hardly long or graceful and as such, it's not to Tycho's refined tastes.

    Sadly, he isn’t me, but if he stopped using lady-scented body wash and switched to Arachnia for Mans, he could smell like he’s me.

    You see that guy over there?
    The fighter pilot with the short brown hair.
    You can feel the tension in the air,
    I think he's banging his wookiee.

    But wookiees aren't for banging,
    They're just supposed to fly your ship.
    I think he's banging his wookiee, yeah yeah yeah,
    And I think that's sick.

    It's not gay if it's an alien.

    It's not all about the necks, okay? In Poker Night at the Inventory Tycho goes on a thing about porcupines and their needles. The man has depth.

    I think it is somewhere between pre orgasm and partially recalling a frighteningly stimulating repressed memory from High School.

    According to the Starwars: Chewbacca comic series Chewbacca climbed many a wroshyr tree and was forced out of him home due to empirical encroachment in his 'younger days' but certainly not "when he was very young." As the star wars wiki explains "When Chewie was in his younger days, before he had reached 100 years of age, he was well known for his skill at navigating the tall wroshyr trees." I for one am aghast and appalled at the blaten lack of canoncality of today's comic. May shame be upon you penny arcade, may shame be upon you.

    Penny Arcade has become the first company in history to offer Upgradeable Shirts
    First Party has returned, and we’re back with the 2.0 version of the polo. What does that mean?

    Here’s what we kept from v1.0:
    i-B2HsKRh.jpg

    - The style – Still two buttons, still has the First Party logo embroidered on the chest, still has the blue First Party tag on the sleeve.

    - The weight – We liked the sturdy, 100% cotton of the first polos, which are thicker than many other human shirts. We kept that weight.

    Here’s what we changed for the v2.0:
    - The material – These are made of a finer cotton than the v1.0s. If you want the dirty details, the v1.0s were “carded-cotton.” These are “combed-cotton.” The upshot is that they are softer/ sturdier.

    - Pre-shrunk – The v2.0 polos have been pre-treated against shrinkage. So these can be worn and abused like normal laundry and they will still keep their size.

    - New colors – We dropped the bright blue and red and replaced them with more muted colors: “Slate Blue” and the “Cardinal Red”. Suggested “Bloodreaverrr Crimson,” got shot down.

    - Vented hem (?) – This is that little triangular slit that’s at the bottom of some shirts of this type. It makes them a little more comfortable to sit in and (in case it is necessary for a dress code) far more comfortable to wear tucked in.

    What we’ve got is a soft, sturdy, comfortable polo with something called a “breathable pique weave.” It’s comfortable right out of the box, and with each wash only grows more comfortable, until you and the shirt become synonyms.

    It seemed like it would be fun or cool or both to offer an “upgrade” program, in keeping with our Version Number nomenclature. Here’s how it works:

    - People who bought a v1.0 polo can “upgrade” to a new v2.0 for free. (Yay!)

    - You will need to cut out the chest emblem…

    - Then, attach the emblem to this form: http://hw1.pa-cdn.com/pa/merch/fppoloupgrade.pdf

    - Send the completed form to the PA Warehouse. (The address is on the form.)

    - If you’re outside the US, the polo is still free, but we need you to share some of the shipping cost with us. So you will need to pay your part of the shipping here: http://store.penny-arcade.com/products/fpship, then include that order number on your form.

    - This offer is good until 6/30/2012

    Okay? Okay.

    Pretty awesome.

    Who would walk away after that? It's one of my favourites.

    Also, that new shirt looks pretty damn good. I'd buy it right now, but it's a preorder and won't get here for a few months, and I'm not sure where I'll be living then, so I guess I'd better wait.

    yeah see, that doesn't bother me in the slightest, it's just a dick joke wrapped in star wars. This latest was... visceral.

    There's no meaningful difference. In one he's implying a trooper's girlfriend is getting railed by a thigh wide wookie cockasaurus, in the other they're talking about the danger of wookie claws during a handjob.
