PvP, also known as Player vs Player, is a webcomic, written and drawn by Scott Kurtz, which by 2005 was receiving around 100,000 unique visitors per day. On February 1, 2007, it became the subject of its own animated series. The comic chronicles the adventures of a fictional video game magazine company and its employees. It features many running gags that are actually references to running gags from other media (television programs, films, games, cartoons, etc.). A popular but often controversial figure in the field of online comics, Kurtz is usually willing to share his opinions about comics and gaming culture in his blog, which is hosted on the same website as his comic strips. Originally, PvP focused on video gaming and the larger 'nerd culture' including comics and RPGs. 1UP.
