you all remember the post G3 did alerting us to PA bashing MT..

well, check MT. seems Piro reads PA.

From the current status:
"
This isn't friggin Penny Arcade - i can be a whiney bitch and skip comics when i feel like it :P
"

I'm eagerly looking forward to his next rant to see if he says anything more about it.

I noticed that on Monday too, on PA. I was looking forward to see the fur fly - I've been getting more and more disinterested in MT lately. Tycho's comment on MT being a "stroke-mag for pedophiles" is harsh, yes, but that's PA for ya.

There's a bit more to the PA side of it, with Gage saying in first post that day: "You won't ever see me bitching on the front page about how hard it is to make a comic strip."

wow, I hadn't seen that post (didn't scroll down that far)..

Personally, I think MT is doing just fine for me. I like the storyline development and the art is nice. Yes, it can be viewed as a stroke-mag for pedophiles if you take it to an extreme, but there's more to it than that.

As to the inconsistant updates of MT, I don't mind one bit. It's not like I've ever given Piro any money to support him or anything. He's not exactly working for me, so I really can't complain. That, and I tried to be updating my webspace regularly to start out with, but I just couldn't do it so I understand what it's like.

For me, it's the slowness of the plot (as a genre, they way it has turned since Largo left), combined with the irregular updates. I mean, I'm no Update Saint - HMFY is enough proff of that, but that's what I quit AKFT.

In a lot of ways, I haven't liked MT nearly as much as when Largo was with it.

And I wasn't agreeing with PA's comments, was just mentioning them in case you didn't catch them all.

agreed, it was better when it was both of them. It is a shame Largo left.

You see the last paragraph of today's MT? He's continuing on.
