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 #8 in a series dating from my university days. Puck ran for three full years in the Silhouette, McMaster University’s student newspaper.
Another bit of a rush job on the drawings, but it gets the point across. This is the second panel to feature Puck’s standard outfit: the vaguely ‘Catholic schoolgirl’ outfit with a micro-miniskirt and a sweater vest. I’m not sure why she wears that same outfit almost all the time, but she does. (All the characters in the strip have static outfits that seldom change, and Puck is no exception.)
The jokes about Puck’s ‘lack of endowment’ pop up periodically. This is the first. Chet never appeared in the strip again. He couldn’t, because he ended up in traction shortly after panel four.
