Who says geeks can’t laugh at themselves?
On the surface, PVP, a popular daily web comic strip, seems to target video game-playing, comic book-reading, Star Wars fans — otherwise known as geeks.
But when you have over 250 consecutive strips to read, as in PVP Vol. 2: Reloaded, the truth becomes evident: PVP isn’t a niche strip, it’s a strip for anyone who likes funny.
PVP’s creator Scott Kurtz is blessed with a gift for subtlety and uncanny comedic timing that will have you laughing out loud at the day-to-day lives of the staff of his fictional video game magazine.
Reloaded features sidesplitting strips on alien abduction, feminism, Mac vs. PC, gorillas in heat and the death of a superhero.
