Are you disappointed by the dearth of comics-themed reality shows out there? (Comic Book Men on AMC doesn’t count.) Well, Mike Krahulik and Jerry Holkins of Penny Arcade fame are rectifying that as a mere spinoff of their wildly successful Kickstarter campaign.
Introducing Strip Search, the reality game show for web cartoonists! Krahulik discusses the project at IGN, and the premiere episode airs (online) today. You can prepare by meeting the contestants, two of whom I follow regularly! Erika Moen I’ve featured here before, and Ty Halley is another autobiographical webcartoonist with snarky observations about mental health, agency, laziness, etc.

Besides those two, there’s 10 other unknown quantities that I’m excited to get to know! We’ll laugh with them, we’ll cry with them, and at the end, only one will remain! This is the wackiest thing ever.
