Comic duplication

Posted 22 September 2007

Is anybody else noticing that Penny Arcade and Ctrl+Alt+Del comics sometimes share very strong similarities? Check it out:

Tiger Woods game faces
8/31 Pendulous And Vile
8/31 The Game Face

Halo 3 tie-in ads
9/14 Alien Genocide Is Thirsty Work
9/14 Marketing Blitz

I like to see originality in my feeds, guys. I'm not going to sit around trying to figure out which comic was published first, or whether there was an external third-party source for the ideas. I just want to see comics that don't look like copies of each other.
