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!
This strip is #7 in a series dating from my university days. Puck ran for three full years in the Silhouette, McMaster University’s student newspaper.
I shudder looking at this strip now. The panels are quite poorly drawn, and the characters are seriously off-model and inconsistent. Oh well. As I’ve said before, I drew most of these strips in a serious rush.
This is about the furthest extent of ‘university humour’ as it was used in the strip. I tried to shy away from ‘academic comedy’, but it slips in now and again. This one takes a pot shot at the Humanities (which, if you’re confused is the broad category which includes literature, history, anthropology, sociology, philosophy, etc.). I was, as you can guess, a Humanities student.
