Hello all you happy web comic reading people.
If any of you haven’t yet, I highly suggest taking a listen to the Penny Arcade podcast. I know Penny Arcade is hugely popular (and should be) but they really haven’t made a big deal out of the show and you kind of have to scroll down to find it, so I’m sure some folks don’t know about it yet.
Rather than an organized or planned presentation, the Penny Arcade podcasts is just Gabe and Tycho talking as they go through the process of writing that days strip. To me, it’s really interesting to listen to a joke form from infancy into comichood, plus you get to here all the ideas that didn’t make the cut, which is really funny. The guys are looking for feedback on the show so if you enjoy it let them know.
Even if you don’t read or like PA, I recommend listening at least once, just to get a peek into the creative process. Plus you get sort of a voyeuristic high listening in on someone else conversation. As always with Penny Arcade, steer clear if naughty words offend, although I really thought I’d hear more.
