Scott Kurtz on PvP, Part One


by Zack SmithFor what started out as an innocent online strip about video games, PvP (aka Player Vs. Player) has proven to be a groundbreaking work in comics. Not only is it a hugely-successful long-running creator-owned humor series, but it’s also one of the most successful webcomics ever. Each day, an estimated 100,000 readers follow the adventures of Cole, Brent, Jade, Francis, Marcy and Skull (and their various friends and enemies) as they riff on both pop-culture and each other.
Now, we’re doing a four-part look back at the series with creator Scott Kurtz, who’s telling the history of the strip in his own words.
