Penny Arcade Book Tour

When they're not crashing castles or finding hominid aliens, Jerry Holkins and Mike Krahulik are crafting a webcomic called Penny Arcade. The comic covers all things pop culture and has garnered quite a following (there's even a Penny Arcade Expo which, this year, will be in Omnicomic's backyard in Boston). Everyone that follows anything are always excited when that serial is put into a compilation, and The Splendid Magic of Penny Arcade: The 11 1/2 Anniversary Edition is such a compilation. Holkins and Krahulik have compiled their strips into this book and every chapter "gathers into a coherent beam of savory trivia, strange facts, formerly mysterious origins, biographical information, interviews, inaugural conventions, an unlikely charity, and comic strips." Yeah, it's definitely worth the $16.32 on Amazon. The dup are embarking on a book tour to promote the book, which started February 23 in Seattle and ends March 31 in St. Louis. Check out all the stops in between after the jump.
