If you’ve been living under a rock or, you know, just don’t follow geek news there has been yet ANOTHER kerfuffle with the dudes who run Penny Arcade. I’m starting to think my friend Josh was right when he said “it’s like they’re trying to burn their empire to the ground.”
There are many people who have described the situation and the problems surrounding it far better than I ever could and I urge you to read some of the following links. I? Will be talking about the situation tomorrow on the vlog (because I promised I would).
There are A LOT of great articles out there still being published about this so expect this post to be updated as I find and want to share more.

Obviously this list isn’t comprehensive so if there are any links you think I should add to it, definitely let me know–either leave a comment or send a message through the contact form.
NOTE: All of the articles I’ve read so far have been, as you can probably tell from the titles, about *NOT* supporting PAX any longer. If you’ve found, written or know of any articles/videos/etc that explain why to KEEP supporting PAX I definitely want to read those too. I want to get opinions and insight from every side I can. Thanks!
UPDATE 9/6: The new links are more supportive of Mike and PAX. Brandi’s and Zulahni’s are definitely worth reading!
