**** (out of five)

PVP is one of the best webcomics around because it’s just really, really funny.

Of course it’s even better if you’re a fan of Starbucks, iPhones, World of Warcraft, Back to the Future, the Dukes of Hazzard, ’70s cop movies, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Friends, Star Trek, the Fantastic Four, Star Wars, Anime, Halo 3 and Twizzlers (mmmm… Twizzlers) — all of which are mixed into the strips in Levels Up, the seventh collection of Scott Kurtz’s classic strip from www.pvponline.com.

Featuring every PVP laugh from 2007, this volume continues to bring the funny, courtesy the fictional staff at PVP magazine — Cole (the beloved boss), Brent (the Apple-obsessed quipster), Jade (the hottest nerdcore chick ever), Francis (the 16-year-old gaming guru) and Skull (the nicest big, blue troll you’ll ever meet).

Highlights of this seventh collection include the origin of the Brent’s nemesis, the Giant Panda; the return of Kringus, the evil Christmas tree (a.k.a. Scratch Fury, Skull’s super-intelligent cat); a murder mystery; and a long-awaited engagement — in true nerd style.
