A sidesplitting collection and great gag gift Aug. 6 2007
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The fourth, full-color collection of strips from the popular webcomic series Penny Arcade, Birds Are Weird continues the tradition of utterly irreverent, largely video game-themed humor. Due to severe cursing and the occasional phallic reference, Penny Arcade is not a comic for young children or the easily offended; and yet its humor has that irresistible effect. Bonus sketches, short text vignettes and a paragraph of extra commentary for virtually every strip enhance this anthology, offering new insights into Penny Arcade's random madness even for readers who have already seen the strip's archive online. "'Yeah, so I was looking at iPods today. I thought about you.' 'Oh yeah? Pretty great huh?' 'Oh yeah, real good. Then I got it up to the register, came to my senses, and bought a thirty dollar discman instead.' 'Yeah but the iPod doesn't skip.' 'Neither does this. It's cushioned by about three hundred and eighty dollars in cash.'" A sidesplitting collection and great gag gift, especially for the technogeek generation.

The best one yet July 22 2007
By fdisk - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is the best so far of the Penny-Arcade books. It's full of great art, jokes and notes by the writer from cover to cover. Highly recommended as a must own for any Penny-Arcade fan.

Brilliant, Inspired, Freakin' Hilarious! Aug. 12 2007
By D. Powers - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As with the last three volumes, this book delivers exactly what it promises: a year's worth of side-splitting, laugh-out-loud comics. Holkins' writing is, as always, uncompromisingly witty, and Krahulik's art improves every year.

The only noticeable improvement to the compilation would be a little extra material in the rear of book. The full color, full page art included in the previous volume blew me away, and it would be nice to have something that breathtaking in all of their publications.
Hilarious! May 14 2008
By Jennifer Bennett - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I had read Penny Arcade now and then in the past, but didn't follow it on a regular basis - then while browsing the comics and manga section of the bookstore, the title of this volume just jumped out at me, as I am a cockatiel owner who loves birds in all their weirdness.

The title of this book (even though the contents have little to do with birds :) ), plus my passing interest in Penny Arcade, and great love of video games made me decide I needed this book. And I enjoyed it thoroughly. I love the art, I love the gamer humour, I love Gabe's Appendix... in short this book is a lot of fun. Highly recommended for fans of gaming and Internet culture. I plan on collecting the rest of the volumes in the very near future!
Great for catching up with the archives Oct. 4 2009

Funny, because it's Penny Arcade, and a great way to catch up with the archives while standing on the bus. My only complaint about these books, is that while the written commentary reveals a lot of what they were thinking/doing in retrospect, I feel like it sometimes doesn't give quite enough context.
