Penny Arcade’s ‘Strip Search’ Cartoonist Reality Game Show Debuts [Video]

In an age of increasingly-specific reality shows, it was only a matter of time until a comics-related series joined the likes of Top Chef and Face Off. Today Penny Arcade creators Mike Krahulik and Jerry Holkins have patched that gaping hole in the fabric of reality entertainment with Strip Search, a new webseries following 12 cartoonists as they compete for $15,000 and a year of space at the Seattle Penny Arcade offices.The contestants were culled from a range of styles and experience levels. Erika Moen, for example, is an established creator and has been highlighted on CA a number of times, while Abby Howard’s a relatively new artist with just about 10 months of comics posted on her website.

The idea of a cartoonist-focused series seems like a solid one, and potentially presents viewers with artists whose work they may not have been familiar with prior to seeing the show online.

The full list of contestants is now online at the official Strip Search site, and you can check out the first episode below, with a new episodes slated to debut each Tuesday and Thursday.
