Puck originally started as a university newspaper comic way back in the prehistoric days of 1998. It was reborn in 2011, and is now running weekly, in color. You can see the original run of eighty strips AND the new colour strips all here!
BIG NEWS!!! THE PUCK BOOK IS READY AT LAST, DAMNIT!!!
It’s been many months in the making, but I’ve finally got the Puck book up and ready for orders! It’s in color, it’s big, it’s beautiful, and it’s only $24.99! It includes +200 comics and a bunch of never before seen extras documenting the early stages of Puck’s creation. For instance, did you know that at an earlier stage of development, Phoebe had goat legs? And for a brief period in history, Puck and Phoebe were a pair of futuristic buddy cops? It’s all in the book!
I sometimes write jokes that maybe only five people on the planet will find funny. This is one of those. For those who don’t know, Richard Burton was an actor who famously married Elizabeth Taylor … twice.
For those of you who are wondering about the nature of the ‘ruse’ mentioned in panel one, I don’t really have any answers. Makeup? Magic? Who knows? It’s Hollywood, man. They’re creative.
Initially my concept was that Taylor would have sold her soul to the devil for eternal youth, but that didn’t sit right with me. What I know of Elizabeth Taylor tells me that she would not sell her soul to the devil for anything. She would, however, marry him and give it an honest try before divorcing him a few years later. She’d totally do that.
