Jive Magazine has posted an interview with Mike Krahulik (AKA Gabe) and Jerry Holkins (AKA Tycho Brahe), the creators of Penny Arcade.
"“When we started the comic strip, we were both right out of high school. We had an apartment and we were playing a lot of games. We had s*** jobs we had to go to and we would do the comics as sort of a hobby. In the middle of the night we would draw them,” recalled Jerry. “After both of us got home from work.”"
