Readers pick best webcomic: A penetrating look

Although they totally forgot about Quincy, the dyanmic duo at Penny Arcade managed to capture the spirit of PlayStation's Home quite aptly in just three strips. Thus it's with (we presume) bittersweet agreement that A Penetrating Look was voted best gaming comic this week. Second and third place go...

Readers pick best webcomic: A Trick of Retrospective

For quite a while, it was a virtual tie between it and xkcd's Flash Games, but in the end Penny Arcade's homage to Mega Man 9 A Trick of Retrospective took top honors in this week's webcomic wrapup. As one commenter quipped, the fourth panel -- the one with all the screaming and angry swearing at t...

Readers pick best webcomic: A New Creative Outlet

It was a landslide victory for wecomic wrapup newcomer Cross Platform, whose comic A New Creative Outlet took almost 40% of the vote. (Be sure to also check out the previous comic, Not-So-Secret Identities.) The site is still being prettified, so here's hoping we'll get permalink pages for each com...

Readers pick best webcomic: "I bought a video game ..."

This week's winner in the webcomic wrapup doesn't even have a true name: we just made one up. (In retrospect, we wonder if our original name "Popsicle Sunshine" would have fared as well.) Dork Tower's entry is actually a bit unfair, as it dates back to 2001. It's just sad that (a) we didn't original...

Weekly Webcomic Wrapup revisits the classics

Digital Unrest's Chris Simmons originally made this comic in April 2006, and we subsequently crashed his servers. The strip has bee remade this week with new art and, given that it never got a fair shot last time, we're going to throw it in again this week. Thanks for the trip down memory lane, Chr...

Readers pick best webcomic: Impressions of Nintendo's E3 conference

Let's be honest: Shigeru Miyamoto would never post on Joystiq, and if he would, we'd like to think our response would be something wittier than ":(". So while we object to The Slackerz' totally false characterization of us, we are required by Blogger Law to award it webcomic of the week. A very clo...

Weekly Webcomic Wrapup gets a Reality Check

Personally, we think still drawing comics at 25 would elicit quite a joyful expression. Here are our picks for the week's best game-related webcomic. Polling after the break; be sure to vote for your favorite! Seven Words (MNC) Selective Service (Penny Arcade) Worser and Worser (Dueling Analogs) Vi...

Readers pick best webcomic: The Unhorse

By a rather large margin, Penny Arcade's "The Unhorse" took the top spot in this week's webcomic wrapup. And we're sure all those voters were rooting for the horse, right? Right? Second and third places go to Fanboys and Digital Unrest, respectively. Thanks to everyone who voted, and be sure to let ...

Readers pick most Super Effective webcomic

Joystiq readers love Scott Ramsoomair. Like, love love. Anything the VG Cats artist touches pretty much shoots to the top of the webcomic wrapup by default. So his spinoff strip, Super Effective, unsurprisingly took very top honors this week. Second and third place go to 2P Start and Digital Unrest...

Readers pick best webcomic: Make it double

That initial glitch in the webcomic wrapup polling didn't affect the final vote. VG Cats' Poké-strip (as in comic strip and not ... eww) was given the rather dubious award for week's best game-related webcomic with quadruple (make it quadruple!) the vote of second place. Runners up include D...
