pennyarcadeWe welcome back Penny Arcade as a sponsor of Desert Bus for Hope 2018.

Penny Arcade began life as a webcomic under the helms of Jerry Holkins and Mike Krahulik in 1998. Since then, they have grown into a powerhouse of digital entertainment with their own selections of video content, podcasts, webcomics, and the Penny Arcade Expo family of conventions. Most dear to us here at Desert Bus is their founding of Child’s Play Charity, without which Desert Bus wouldn’t be what it is today.

Thank you Penny Arcade for your contributions and support of Desert Bus for Hope!

Jerry Holkins will be joining us at the Lunar Module Mk. 3 on Tuesday, November 15th.

Jerry Holkins is the primary writer of the webcomic Penny Arcade along with its artist Mike Krahulik. Holkins sometimes uses the pseudonym “Tycho Brahe”, the name of his Penny Arcade character.

Together with Krahulik, Holkins created the Penny Arcade Expo beginning in 2004, a series of gaming festivals held in Seattle, Boston, Australia, and San Antonio. He is also a co-founder of Child’s Play, a multimillion-dollar charity which supports a network of hospitals worldwide and US domestic violence support facilities through donations of toys and games.

Have a question for Jerry? Leave it in the comments below.
