  1. GAMEBOY says:

    Why am I imagining Penny revealing herself to be an extremely intelligent and technologically advanced android sometime in the future?

  2. JorickHorn says:

    Wow. I think it would actually continue to exist beyond that point, but only because penny, instead of going to look for it, just grabbed it from the future. It’s like she created a brand new one by ripping apart spacetime.

  3. MrGBH says:

    Life must be so easy for her. Forgot her homework? Here it is! Locked herself outside her house? Oh look, here are the keys!
    I must find access to this power somehow.

  4. Alex says:

    Well, she’s not perfect, it just hasn’t been evident yet. :)

  5. Jackie-O says:

    lol if i was anymore awake, i think that this would make my brain hurt

  6. Sir Sniper says:

    uh, well, hmmmm…….You know what, I’m just gonna not question it.

  7. LesPaulGuy says:

    Are you basing her guitar off of a specific model? It looks kinda like a Fender Stratocaster, but the headstock is different.

  8. Trypno01 says:

    I can’t tell if this is paramount to breaking the fourth wall or not. And how is the tuner in the third panel when it’s being handed back and forth between the second and fourth? So strange, I wish I was a webcomic sometimes

  9. Alex says:

    The guitar is kinda based on a strat because that’s the kind my roommate plays, but the different headstock is more because it’s easier for me to draw .
    Penny takes the tuner from panel 4 into panel 2. It appears in panel 3 through the passage of time until she hands it back to herself in panel 4.

  10. Kellan says:

    There goes Penny again…

    I wish I could break the Space/Time Continuum. That’d make life easier…

    Or destroy the universe…

    Meh…Win/Win situation.

  11. Zt107 says:

    Breaking the fourth wall and some laws of physics, i wonder if that tv weight myth affects webcomics

  12. Mr. Dude says:

    penny looks like someone i know… i’m getting inexplicably turned on now. gottago!

  13. MrGBH says:

    Mr. Dude, Penny’s sixteen. SIXTEEN! That’s just wrong.

    Unless you live in England, in which case it’s perfectly alright.

  14. K says:

    I definetly stared at those two panels for a long time… I need to figure out how to tap into that power too lol

  15. JorickHorn says:

    Mr. GBH, Mr. Dude could be 19 or less. That’s well within standard creepiness age. (standard creepiness: (Older/2)+7 (round down to nearest whole) = minYounger or ((Younger-7)x2)+1 = maxOlder )

  16. Alex Goold (only wishes he was the creator) says:

    I am somehow too shy to comment on any of the other pages, but:
    A) I love love LOVE your comic, totally awesome!
    B) This is so awesome, i don’t think many webcomics would look or feel quite as awesome doing the same thing, love the time/space traveling Penny! But not in the way Mr. Dude does.

  17. Dylan says:

    ITS AN ENDLESS LOOP OF DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!!!!!!!! I think Penny has the ability to Travel through time although im sure there is some kind of Paradox Theory on what would happen if she did.
    and MrGBH.
    If he was also in Alabama or Texis it would also be alright or in most “developing” (Third World) Countries for that matter because in Texis the age of Concent is either 16 or 14 I can’t really remember it it was something that made me Cringe at the thaught of, and Alabama pritty much has the same laws (I’m being sterio typical here and mean no offence by what i say with this) as most 3rd world or “developing” countries.

  18. iSaint says:

    Holy Infinite Loop Batman.

  19. Zt107 says:

    So penny is some how going to have to get a newt tuner because the one in this comic is now stuck in the time-space continuim. I dont really think thats worth it.

  20. Ricky says:


  21. Skiine says:

    This trips me out. Alot.

  22. MrGBH says:

    @ZT107: But the next time she needs a tuner she’ll just get one from another future Penny.

    And I don’t think anywhere in America has an age of consent of 14. The only places I know of are France and Belgium. And the vast majority of America has it at 18.

  23. pks says:

    Truly excellent, I love the Penny-power strips

  24. Zt107 says:

    @MrGBH: still some dimension of Penny has to buy one to start the loop.

  25. corjoth says:

    O.o i have this nagging feeling ive done something like that….about a week ago i couldnt find something put my hand down on a cleaned off table and it was jst beside my hand…then today i put it down on the table (still bare) and with no-one home but me it dissapeared>.>

  26. noname says:

    MrGBH, the vast majority of America has it at 16. One state has it at 13 or 14, though, and until recently it was 12 in the Netherlands.

  27. A Jedi says:

    Looks like Penny once again demonstrates her ability to break the Forth Wall when no one is looking, maybe that has something to do with it. Just speculation.

  28. Nyahm says:

    Penny is pretty awesome, she like can interact with the artist and she can see all space and time and go back to it and everything…it’s just cool.

  29. Tom Evianot says:


    Please read that before making “educated guesses”.
    Thank you.

  30. A Velociraptor says:

    Brain…..broken….reality undone

  31. Emily says:

    That’s spectacular. Utterly spectacular.

  32. Vayne says:


  33. hWill hWheaton says:


  34. deeznuts says:


    Because you’re fucking gay.

  35. ThatOneGuy says:

    sometimes when I’m tired I see speech bubbles above peoples heads as they speak, Penny has harnessed this ability, and she’s taken it several steps forward, it’s called ‘webcomic power’ all gingers have it

    she’s like, some sort of god of webcomics, all breaking reality and stuff, she has to do a cameo in my life so she can teach me this stuff

  36. Crestlinger says:

    And there goes the 5th wall.

  37. NK_Nutter says:

    Who divided by zero?!

  38. Lizzel says:

    the fourth wall is Penny’s bitch

  39. freak with a pen says:

    that just blew my mind

  40. Zephi says:

    No really I did…
    I MEAN IT>>>>>>>>>
    Really it was funny.
