Win a Free Signed Print from Scott Kurtz

Back in April of 2007 when I was starting my trip, I stopped in Dallas to visit my friend Scott Kurtz, who writes I spent a few days in Dallas and he did his April 10, 2007 comic strip about me, which was a real honor.

I’m teaming up with Scott to give away a FREE signed 11×17 print of this cartoon. You should also know that you can get a 11×17 print of each and every PVP comic for only $9.99.

If you are a PVP reader, all you have do to win is leave a comment saying who your favorite character from PVP is, and you are not a PVP reader you really should be. You can atone for yours sins by just naming your favorite cartoon character.

Winner of the Dead Sea mud was entry #23, Jackie.

    Gotta be the G.P. Much love for the Giant Panda.

  4. Shea says:

    Cross between Marcy and Francis.

  5. Brent. [I’m a coffee fueled Graphic Designing MacWhore.]

  6. Brent! Definitly, Brent!

  7. Joe says:

    I always like Max and how he torments Cole

  8. Pete says:

    My favorite character is Butler!

  9. Hunter says:

    I’m gonna have to go with Skull myself, I loves me a big character with a heart.

  10. Tworldcircus says:

    OMG! So funny. Love this and Both of you!

  11. Sarah Sawyer says:

    My favourite character is Scratch Fury. He reminds me of my ginger tabby :)

  12. Jared says:

    I’m going to go with Robbie, I love the lottery storyline and his Butler, Butler.

  13. Brian Hudson says:

    My favorite character has to be Scratch (the cat).

  14. MrJodie says:

    Scratch, of course. What’s not to love? Of course, a shower, every once in awhile, might help.

  15. Scratch Fury is my favourite, if you’ve ever owned a cat, you’ll understand.

  16. mandingo says:

    My favorite character: The Weird Gaming Store Witch–no refunds!

  17. Erik says:

    My favorite character is Sketchy!!!!!!!!!

  18. Charles says:

    My favorite character is Francis, I see a lot of my younger self in him, and he’s also very hilarious!

  19. Katherine says:

    Jade, because of that one strip where Brent comments on how she never wears her hair “up”. That would be me, ponytail all the way.

  20. Erik S says:

    Kirby was my favorite. RIP Kirby.

  21. Sarah G says:

    I remember seeing that comic when it first came out and thinking about how awesome that trip would be.

    I think my favorite character is Francis, for reasons I don’t even know. Second would have to be Scratch.

  22. Mathx says:

    I’d have to say my favorite character is Scott’s dad, with clever remarks, and harsh sense of humor (even if he’s not entirely aware of that himself… :P )

  23. Mike Lane says:

    I was thinking of saying Kirby, in honor of his passing. Having several dogs at home, I related to some of his exploits.

    But, truth be told, I’ve got to go with Kringus. I can’t wait until next year / this year’s episode. I think Santa’s going down.

  24. I like Francis’s robot…

  25. Sherry says:

    Scratch! Hmm…. or Skull’s lazy boozy dad/grandad(?)- point I love when Scratch confronts him in the bar when Scratch is off to ‘rescue’ Skull… So, no, that brings me back to Scratch.

    Scratch Fury ;)

  26. John says:

    One of my favorite (quasi?) PVP characters has got to be Crichton from the time-travelling story Scott did way back when:

    I told you I’m from Betelgeuse, my technology is just indistinguishable from magic!

  27. lherrero says:

    Cole. yeah, i’m boring.

  28. EMM386 says:

    Kirby. He’s too cute when he’s with Scratch.

  29. Scott says:

    Scratch Fury: Destroyer of Worlds. Gotta love the name.

  30. Michael says:

    Brent. It has to be Brent!

  31. Ian says:

    My favorite PvP character is Skull. He is too innocent for his own good.

  32. William says:

    I think my favorite PvP character is the LOLBat, because he represents everything that is wrong with people on the Web.

  33. Chuck Canoe says:

    I actually found out about your blog via that strip, so it’s nice to see this contest up here!

    My favorite character has got to be Butler. The man is like a cosmopolitan superhuman who understands the utility of service.

  34. Richard says:

    My fav PVP character has to be Brent, if for nothing but his relationship with Skull. Scott is the one that got me to Everything Everywhere, and now I’m a RSS subscriber and have enjoyed every post…

  35. Woo says:

    Awesome, Gary. I’m not a regular reader, but should really drop that into my feed…since I get lost in the archives whenever anybody sends me there.

    I guess my favorite webcomic character is Slither, of Boy on a Stick and Slither.

  36. Ryan Ricard says:

    Holy Crap, I didn’t know you had a PVP done on you. That is sweet.

    I’m not a PVP reader unless someone links me to a particularly funny strip, but I’ll keep it webcomic-related and say Annarchy from penny arcade.

  37. Karen says:

    I’m gonna have to go with Scratch Fury. Because I’m fairly sure he’s in league with my cat Boots (the Evil One).

  38. Perry says:

    Being a mac-o-phile, I’d have to say Brent. But the Panda is a close second.

  39. Grant says:

    Favorite cartoon character huh? I would say… Roger Rabbit.. I will have to check out PVP… looks funny!

    Safe travels Gary!

  40. BenSpark says:

    I ‘ve been reading PVP for years and I had no idea that strip was about you, what a doof. I can’t beleive I didn’t put 2 and 2 together. Wow, well, my favorite character is Brent, he’s got some of the best lines.

  41. Susan says:

    Skull, of course! He’s the <3 of PvP!

  42. I am regular reader of PVP and my favorite at this point of time is Shecky.

  43. Trajjik says:

    I’m a big fan of Shecky, despite his dubious behaviour.

  44. kheetor84 says:

    I say that my favorite character has to be, from the beginning, Jade.
