Penny arcade has made me literally laugh out loud twice in just the last week and a half with this one:



And this one:

I also generally don't like Penny Arcade, but that Susan one did make me smirk.

And making fun of Sony Smash Bros. is something I can get behind.

It would be a very long list here if I had to go through all the Penny Arcade strips that made me laugh to the point of tears. It's one of those strips that just really clicks with me, and continues to, even though I'm not nearly as much of a gamer as I used to be (like, I barely game at all these days).

Well, OK, I will throw these three old favorites up:

As I was picking these three I started coming across more and more ones I love, and needed to stop myself from posting more. So the rest of you lucked out.

Incidentally, is the guy's head in panel 2 a reference to a particular dragon? I know I've seen a red, scaly version of that exact face somewhere....

Mutts was high on my list for the early material. The first year or so it was one of the funniest things I've ever read. Being a cat lover I was especially fond of Mooch, and I loved the art.  But eventually the strip got too preachy and sappy -even though I fundementally agreed with the message- and lost me. But for a while it was golden.

Mutts, like Family Circus, is one of those strips that I can always count on to be taped to my grandmother's refrigerator.

Penny Arcade makes me laugh 'til I'm sick fairly often. Here's one of my faves, though I'm not proud.

Kate Beaton (born September 8, 1983) is a Canadian webcomic artist. Originally from Mabou, Cape Breton, she has a degree in history and anthropology from Mount Allison University. Beaton began drawing comics for the university newspaper, the Argosy, during her third and fourth years at school. Previously she worked in the maritime museum in Victoria. In 2007, after her friends persuaded her to post her increasing stack of comics online, she began uploading them through katebeaton.com and her LiveJournal. In December of that year she made the first of two popular batches of history comics, each based on twenty requests she accepted from her readers. She moved to her current website, Hark! A Vagrant, in May 2008.

Time magazine named it one of the top ten fiction books of the year, with Lev Grossman calling it "the wittiest book of the year."
