The webcomics community seems like a pretty cool bunch, specially when they all pitch in and help each other out. One of my favorite webcomics, PvP Online
, often features guest artists to fill in for creator Scott Kurtz when he's away at some convention or just down with some bad bug. Just recently, he coralled the immensely talented Ramón Pérez, the genius behind Kukuburi
, to do a guest strip
while he was down with the flu.
That's nice, you say, but what's this got to do with World of Warcraft
? Well, see, Gabe from Penny Arcade (aka creator Mike Krahulik's alter ego) apparently picked up some kind of bad bug
during their PAX
or Penny Arcade Expo, and some well-known comic folks such as Bill Amend
and Kris Straub
stepped in to help. The highlight is that World of Warcraft's
art director, Samwise Didier
, the man largely responsible for the look and feel of many of Blizzard's games also pitched in
It has nothing to do with our favorite game, but it's freaking Samwise doing a freaking Penny Arcade strip! I mean, I don't really have to explain why I'm posting this, right? One of our favorite WoW
icons doing a guest strip on one of our favorite webcomics (that occasionally tackles WoW
) is so full of win it almost makes Saurfang cry. These sort of crossovers are so cool, you almost wish these webcomic creators would get sick more often. Ok, not really, but you know what I mean.
