Because he says that he is unable to post due to some trouble or another.<P>'This has to be my favorite of any comic you have ever done. A whole, however long it was, leading up to you bashing the fuck out of Penny Arcade. I hate that comic so much. Not only because it is unfunny, but mainly because my gamer friends find it so funny. They say people don't understand it. But I explain the comic to them, then explain why it is not funny. And they keep on liking it! Every Penny Arcade comic pretty much boils down to "Video Game reference!" "Unfunny reply to video game reference" "Lets go play Quake 3!". For some reason people find it funny because they think they are 'getting' it. But they are just 'getting' an unfunny reference. People 'get' math. MATH IS NOT FUNNY. '

I never said I had any problem with the creator of Penny Arcade. I just really dislike the comic. And I really hate when people tell me it's because it's "Too inside" or that I "Don't get it." I am on the inside of gaming, and I do get it. Getting it doesn't help it become more humorous. Sort of like Anthrax.<P>-=ConcreteLobotomy=-

PA <I>the comic</I> is nothing great for me personally. I like the drawing style a lot, but it's essentially an editorial cartoon for the gaming industry, and it embodies a certain attitude. (Wang.) The PA rants, though, are classic humor.<P>What Lee is doing is something different again. The whole gaming-comic genre is really irritating to the serious Web cartoon artist. (Yes, I'm suppressing a giggle here.)<P>And this storyline is hands-down the funniest thing Lee Herold has ever done. I keep rereading it. It's genius.<P>------------------
