8 Weeks Until PAX: The Best of Kara

While looking at a calendar today, Rosalind and I discovered that it’s exactly eight weeks until Penny Arcade Expo (aka PAX) in Seattle, WA. What better way to celebrate our fast-approaching weekend of geeky awesomeness than with a Penny Arcade countdown. Starting today, we will focus on something we love about Penny Arcade.

We only thought it appropriate that since this blog is dedicated to the girly side of geek that we first focus on one of our favorite girl gamers: Gabe’s wife Kara. So today we present to you our favorite Kara-centered strips from the Penny Arcade comic. Enjoy!

We’ll start you off with a classic, Larvae.

And then an oldie, but a goodie, Gabe: 0, Kara: 1

Polygonous Polygamy reminds us that every girl has been a little worried that her boy is more into his character than her?
Just for fun, One Part Swash, Two Parts Buckle is one that features Tycho’s wife Brenna instead:
A Classic Scenario is my favorite Kara strip! That may or may not be because Chip is also one of my favorite Disney characters.
Rosalind’s favorite is this gem, He’s Got Legs, probably because she can relate to it!
There’s plenty more, but you’ll just have to check out Penny Arcade to see them!

    The spider one is probably my favorite. My wife and I both love Larvae, because that exact scenario is why I couldn’t make it to Pax East this year.

      Yeah, my husband has actually sent me photo text’s of bugs he wanted me to come home and kill, so I ask him if they are wearing his shoes often! Too bad about Pax East, but awesome that you’ve got a little one to train!

    1) PAX looks fun (probably more fun the more of a gamer I become)…

    2) Love those strips. It’s fun when they bring in the girls, adds a little variety. 🙂
