    Umm, why exactly is explaining human procreation to kids an issue? I can't even remember being so young that I wouldn't have known where babies came from.

    It's not Broodhollow, with creepy-glow-eyed ghostwangs, gaping pit vaginas, and Kris' skeleton clawing its way out of his flesh....but it'll do.

    As they stated in a news post (and in the latest DLC related to these strips), they got back more positive responses than they planned for. Today is the last one per the podcast.

    This entire guest run has been brilliant. It only occurred to me yesterday that Kris could get in on this, and his contribution is so, so good. A++ for all the artists in this series.

    From the podcast which I don't think non-clubpa people have access to yet.
    Today is the last of the guest strips.
    The podcast mentioned that they would be making one opening comic ("The Talk by Mike Krahulik") and one closing comic, maybe the talk by jerry holkins?

    So by the podcast, monday will be the last one

    Turns out that "penny arcade" is now going to be known as "sex ed". The comic will now consist of various artists from around the web explaining where babies come from to one increasingly annoyed child, and a rather bored audience.

    Guest runs are good and all, but this is kinda the same punchline over and over again. Glad to be out of it.

  • fightinfilipinofightinfilipino Angry as Hell #BLMRegistered User regular
    opinions.

    it's weird to me when the comic does a short hiatus like this and dozens of people come out of the woodwork to do nothing but complain.

    I think each comic, on its own, has been amusing. But taken as a whole, the joke is pretty tired. I'm not against guest strips. But guest strips of different topics would have been better, considering the length of time that this has gone on.

    So if we're at the end minus Jerry's thesaurus-laden wrapup? RANKING TIME!
    I'd give first prize to AmyFalconess for topical nailingIt.
    I'd give second first prize to Katie for pure comedy gold.
    The rest can fight over the third first prize for the same joke.

    In this day and age all peoples have to be given first prize or so I've been told. This is what comes from attending a nephew's 2nd grade graduation with the only trophies being "FIRST PLACE" participation trophies for everyone. Congrats on not becoming a 2nd grade hobo I guess. </rambling>

    It makes it that much more amazing when you can read the strip in the person's voice and have it enhance the experience. This is one of those strips.

    Kris, I once thought everyone was raised in a similar tradition. I was wrong. Just be aware you may not share similar values as people you think are your "friends." It was embarrassing and awkward when I found out. My "besties" were running and screaming at The Time they were to be Fulfilled... let's just say they weren't the "Best Friends" they led me to believe they were. xxooxxoox

    Moving right along:

    The "carousel of strangers" remark from the first The Talk makes a much different kind of sense now.

    When it first posted, it was a poignant comment on letting School and Other Sources take that freaky burden off Gabe's hands.

    Now, the Carousel of Strangers is an actual cabal of cartoonists whose names can be listed if it ever comes to court.

    >it's weird to me when the comic does a short hiatus like this and dozens of people come out of the woodwork to do nothing but complain.

    Almost like lurkers come out and comment when they have opinions of stuff? Wow, that's crazy. Personally, I was fine with it until we got a couple of weeks in. This guest run is LONG.

    It's weird to me that when we're like "We miss the real comic!" people somehow get annoyed by it. Personally, I mean it as a compliment to the PA guys. Other people's stuff doesn't do it for me. I come here for them.

    I hope that if the last part of The Talk is indeed Jerry Holkins, that he also does the art.

    Warning! Wangs!

    The others were mildly amusing, but Kris Straub really knocks it out of the park. Every panel is a new laugh.

    ''Perfect question for a guy who sometimes does animations for your dad''
    ''What have I done''
    ''The ultimate lie''
    ''Nine somber months''

    Great.

    "We miss the real comic"?

    yeah I can't stand fake comics either. I heard they cause cancer in laboratory rats, and the taste is never quite right anyway.

    People are always going to come in during guest strip periods or longer running arcs and say they want the normal comic back. It's fine, it's understandable. In an ideal world, I guess people would just wait it out, but it actually causes more of a problem when people react to them angrily or snarkily. If they're being abusive, ping me and I'll sort it out. Otherwise, just let people be people.

    Well, OK, but when you come out of the woodwork only to complain, you're kind of asking to be complained about right back. It's a compliment. It would be more insulting to be ignored.

  • TubeTube Registered User admin
    So I'm telling you to be more insulting. That is a rare treat.

    Oh, shit. It's already past 9 in Seattle, I think, and there's no new comic. This can only mean one thing... Everybody in Washington is dead! Nooooo-- but honestly I want Jerry to get to work and draw his version of the strip because that's going to be the best PA strip ever and I have hype. I have hype, good sir.

    EDIT: My hype is gone, good sir. At least new comic.
