Transcript Edit

Panel 1

{Tycho and Gabe are sat in chairs opposite to the interviewer as silhouettes. Gabe has his hands raised slightly. Box at top.}
Box: After months of meetings with CEOs, Penny Arcade had secured the exclusive right to create comics about videogames.
Gabe: It just seemed like the right time to jump onboard the exclusivity bandwagon.

Panel 2

{Zoom into Tycho. Gabe and interviewer off panel.}
Tycho: There are... Excuse me, heh, were a lot of gaming comics. Trying to compete on quality was a huge pain in the ass - now we're pretty much it. Most of them have turned to creating earnest, diary style comics.
Interviewer: {off panel} How does this help readers?

Panel 3

{Zoom to Gabe. Gabe has his hand raised slightly. Tycho is off panel.}
Gabe: Oh, it doesn't. This is actually super bad for them. Our work was never terribly good to begin with, and now there's no incentive to improve. I doubt we'll even have punchlines anymore.
