PVP Goes Bananas
$12.99 US (Paperback)
**** (out of five)
PVP may be one of the funniest web comics around, but there is also a much deeper side to it.
Oh sure, there’s video game, sci-fi and pop culture gags galore, but above all, PVP is about teaching readers to watch out for the dangers in the world.
This fourth collection of the monthly Image Comics series, for example, warns of the perils of the flirty-ness of your girlfriend’s (sometimes hotter) sister, the risks of growing a big, fat moustache and how caffeine, no matter how much fun it is being up 22 hours a day, is a drug.
In between all those informative allegories, creator Scott Kurtz manages to pack in enough gaming geek gags, sexual snickers and gas-related guffaws to make this book essential reading for anyone who needs to get their laugh on.
