    Always wanted to know: is Annarchy based on Jerry's irl niece?

    What is going on with Gabes mouth in the second panel? Is he drooling or is that teeth?

    Tycho's eyes in the second panel are either perfect or in a state where he should go to a doctor. What are they even looking at?

  • Finnish_LineFinnish_Line Registered User regular
    The facial coloring is a bit out of control.

    But I like the comic overall.

    Fairly certain that's the case, yes.

  • GanluanGanluan Registered User regular
    Getting a Gomer Pyle mixed with Goofy vibe from Gabe in the second panel.

    I thought she was an amalgam of nieces or something? Or maybe that was a different character.

    Annarchy was based off Jerry niece of 10 years ago. She's all grown up now.

  • TubeTube Registered User admin
    She's not based on a real person.

    I love it when (the comic version) Tycho torments Gabe with these little revelations about their relationship.

    I'm so happy to see Annarchy back, she has always been my favorite and I have really missed her

    I had a theory about a year or two ago that since the comic's inception, they seem to be drawing Gabe's appearance to look like he's been getting progressively dumber as the years went by. This appears to continue with that trend.

    Is Gabe suffering from a degenerative neurological condition, and is that going to be a big reveal towards the end of PA's life?

    Certainly not since the comics inception, having gone back and read the old stuff in the books there is little to no development on the characters for quite awhile. I'd say its something that has been going on for the last 5 years or more.

    Someone who thinks that a particular art style is bad probably isn't going to be swayed by any counter-example.

  • OmegaDezOmegaDez CanadaRegistered User regular
    Oh, wow, Annarchy. How long has it been since she was last seen here, 8 years?
    I wish PA actually used its characters more often. How long ago was Charles' last appearance?

    It's actually only been since April '14. https://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2014/04/09

    Before that her last appearance was in 2011.

    Eh, art is a pretty subjective thing. He's never going to please everyone. The different coloured noses kind of make me think of the Chipmunks.

  • PLAPLA The process.Registered User regular
    Annarchy was gone? Time is bullshit.

  • LinktmLinktm Registered User regular
    Late to the party, but... the art IS super weird. In the second panel Gabe seems terribly stoned. In the third panel Tycho seems terribly depressed. Like, they look like the living dead here, devoid of all emotion.

    Depressed is an emotion
