    Is it just me, or does anyone else find these comics inane?

    I liked how comic 2 transitioned to comic 3. Overall though I sort of agree; there is too little content for me to bother following this.

    Ghetto Goose's unfunny Fallout Community Comic was funnier (anyone remembers that?).

    I bet BS has to approve each comic.

    It's as stale as stale as a dead fish can be.

    It's just way too slow. Today's comic could lead to something interesting, but we have no way of knowing, and it's not interesting in itself. Then next week we'll just get another three panels which may or may not promise something more.

    What Per says is spot on. This could be funny read in sequence, as one story, or maybe with quick updates. This way it's really yawn

    I remember GG, but no comic. Link?

    I actually liked this one the most yet. Something cheesy about the Vault Boy's expression and line in the last panel.

    Penny Arcade is overrated. And this series shows why.

    Uhm... no. Don't. I'm serious.

    Mike Krahulik is a pretty gifted cartoonist but the writer is just awful around 99% of the time. He typically writes an unfunny comic, and then an even less funny news post explaining it. I wonder if he even tries or if he just realizes he's a completely talentless parasite attached to his skilled partner.

    The guy is also pretty much a racist bastard if you ever visit his forums as well.

    I thought that last one was kind of funny, not amazingly overly funny but just kind of "heh" funny.

    I thought the whole freaking out on the king puppet being killed kinda of humorous.


    6/10 including every comic so far.

    Yeah please elaborate because i have watched their work for like 4 years and i haven't got any impression of racism yet?

    Then again, im not that interested in their forums and sometimes the newsposts break my brain because English isn't native to me and the guy uses alot of flashy words for effect...
