This weekend is the date of the very first PAX East, the East Coast version of the wildly popular PAX Prime, the Penny Arcade Expo.  In honor of the con, and in gratitude for its geographical proximity, we have dedicated this week’s PowerGrid to the most obscure characters to ever appear in the comic.

And we don’t mean Twisp and Catsby, or Mr. Period, or Charles.  No.  Really obscure.  All of these characters have been in at least two comics, but most of them no more than that.  Some of them have had a legacy much larger than their list of appearances would suggest.  Some… not so much.

See the whole Power Grid.

Susana Polo thought she'd get her Creative Writing degree from Oberlin, work a crap job, and fake it until she made it into comics. Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
