Penny Arcade Volume 5: The Curse of the Mummy's Gold - Out This Week
Written Monday, June 02, 2008 By Alan PettitView author's profile
So, if you took a chance and downloaded the RPG arcade game and enjoyed the humor or have been a fan for a long time, here's a chance to own a bit of it. This collects every strip of their online comic from 2004 and though these are still available for viewing at their website, it's nice to have something you enjoy in your hands. A lot of people wish comics were digital-only and I imagine I would stop reading them all together if that were the case. Anyway, here's the official description from Dark Horse Comics:
"Join us, intrepid explorers, as we journey once again into the depths of the Penny Arcade archives, facing eldritch curses and monstrous perils aplenty in our quest to unearth the ancient treasures of the year 2004 A.D.!
Marvel at the mysteries laid bare within, at these tales of epic gaming, appliances gone bad, line-dancing blood feuds, and so much more! Face, if you dare, the ominous foreboding of The Last Christmas, the challenging depths of Twisp and Catsby, and the poignant tragedy of The Wandering Age!"
* Includes every strip posted on penny-arcade.com during 2004, a treasure trove of bonus material, and creator commentary by writer Jerry Holkins!
* Special foreword by actor, writer, and blogger extraordinaire Wil Wheaton!
This will be available this wednesday for $12.95, 136 pages worth of material.
