By this time you should have figured out the cover gag and how it's a play on some cover genre and a way for Gabe to show off various art styles. You knew that right? Anyways, collection of comics, reviewing them, here we go:

The comics - Small movements of the Wii controller are all that are necessary, the chuwero (a solid joke I've stolen at least twice so far and gotten real life laughs out of), FF12 plays itself, armadeaddon (the one with the mall zombies), World of Starcraft (they've stopped peeing!) the first Franzibald stuff, Lexii (buy us some lexuses) and apparently this was the year Kingdom hearts game out... or something, so there was some good stuff there.

Bonus Content - A semi-playable class/race called the witchalock, 3.5 ready, enjoy

A fantastic leap in quality over book 6 June 29 2011
By PixelatedPope - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Before I discuss book 7, we need to talk about book 6. I'll be honest, I was a little disappointed with book 6. I won't go into detail (if you want to go read reviews on book 6, they are pretty accurate), but the print quality and overall book design left a little to be desired. So I was a little apprehensive about ordering book 7 without reading some reviews first. But, being a long time Penny-Arcade fan since about 2000, I wanted to support Mike and Jerry's efforts regardless. So I purchased, hoping for the best.

When book 7 arrived, I was really excited to see the return to the quality that is present in books 1-5. The overall image quality has been increased, the silly fonts for the comic titles were nowhere to be seen, the odd placement of comic commentary on the opposite page of the comic was gone, the awkward white-space around single comic pages was replaced with watermarked characters. I would probably need to hold book 7 next to one of the first 5 to really be able to see the stylistic differences, if there are even any present. But overall, the sense of quality is present throughout the entire book.

If you are a fan of Penny-Arcade already, you probably don't need to read the rest of this review.

2006 was just a great year for the comics. There was a lot going on with the recent release of the Xbox 360 and the upcoming releases of the PS3 and Wii. Couple that with some awesome Cardboard Tube Samurai comics and the spectacular Armadeaddon Fanservice Extravaganze, and it's not hard to justify the 10 dollars. Of course Jerry's commentary is, as always, interesting and funny to read; giving insight into comic origins and commentary on how things penny-arcade once criticized publicly are now the norm (such as when EQ2 was being given away for free).

The bonus content at the end covers some of the fiction behind The Song Of The Sorcelator. Accompanying it are several original Sorcelator comic strips that did not appear on the web. It's a nice little addition to an already great book.

A definite buy for any Penny-Arcade fan. Seriously, why are you still reading this? Just purchase it already.

It's Penny Arcade, so read with caution... then laugh with abandon! May 27 2012
By Jason G - Published on Amazon.com

Look, it's Penny Arcade. If you aren't clear on this, go to:

[...]

And read a few strips. If you don't like juvenlie humor, blood, gore, and occasional necrophilia jokes... don't buy this. If, however, you don't mind all that and want the best comic available about video games, video gamers, and their lives - written in a satirical bent - then DO buy this, and support these guys.

Cheaper then the PA store! Aug. 26 2011
By Kristopher C. Hunt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I started buying the Penny Arcade archive books because there were huge chunks of time when I stepped out of webcomics, gaming, and even snarky cartoons. Be Good, Little Puppy covers all of 2006 of the archives and has bonus material not seen on the website. If you are into the ironic fashion of reading hard copy versions of digital comics this book suits you fine.

I really do enjoy the books more than the site now. I've read all the comics before, but I don't remember them by the time the book comes out. The commentary is thoughtful and well-done, and there is something for every comic. It's real added value and not just a token feature.
