I think it’s important to note that the following paragraph contains a link to what the ladies call “pornography”. A lot of people mail me and ask how they know if their webcomic strip is successful. I think that when your merchandise is worn by one of the internet’s most popular models in an erotic photo shoot, you can safely assume you have attained some small measure of success.
Whenever we go to conventions I am constantly surprised by the young kids who come up and tell me they are fans of Penny Arcade. Often times their parents will even be right there with them. I can’t help but wonder if there is some other Penny Arcade out there that these kids are reading. Perhaps they have simply confused me with the creator of some family friendly strip about a little penguin named Penny. I honestly don’t think Penny Arcade is for kids and so I’ve never really felt the need to censor the sorts of things we talk about here on the site. Even so, we’ve consistently turned down porn sites who ask to advertise on the site. I can’t tell you why I think its okay to say in a comic that a man has to kill a dog to have an orgasm, but I won’t run an ad for a site with vaginas. With that said, I can’t help but make mention of the most recent update at SuicideGirls.com. (NSFW!)
WARNING!!!!! You should only follow this link if you want to see a girl playing videogames and wearing a Penny Arcade shirt get naked. Knowing our audience as I do, I have a feeling that’s going to be a lot of you. I should mention that this is not a free show.
