What I’m learning from this experiment:
Penny Arcade is utter shit, shit at a craft level. Dilbert is insipid piss, but Scott Adams at least creates panels that have some kind of potential, some kind of intrinsic tension that can be exploited to create something else which is wonderful. Penny Arcade is just two lumpen clods lumbering from one horrible panel to the next. No artistry, no internal logic and absolutely no instinct for design or narrative. lt’s the kind of horrible shit only someone who grew up exposed to NOTHING ELSE but videogames could create. Take these two losers away with the trash, Jesus.
