We’ve been keeping an eye on the Penny Arcade Kickstarter for quite some time. Besides having implications to our potential business model, the Kickstarter has a very specific webcomic creator oriented goal in the Strip Search reality show. The contestants of the show will be pitted against each other in a battle of webcomic creation and business.
If you are an artist who fancies yourself a webcomic creator, you can enter right now. I don’t see why you wouldn’t. The prize is a decent sum of cash and access to the even more significant resources of Penny Arcade. You’d basically be sponsored by the largest organization in webcomics.
That being said, as a non-artist, I am unable to participate. Ryan has entered so certainly wish him luck. The next few comics take place in an imaginary world where I attempt to enter the competition anyway. I’m holding out on you somewhat, with regard to my feelings on the matter. I don’t want to spoil them for you.
