This strip is #11 in a series dating from my university days. Puck ran for three full years in the Silhouette, McMaster University’s student newspaper.

The point of this one is to quickly sum up the hostile relationship between Puck and her new roommate, Phoebe. (Phoebe, by the way, is the daughter of Satan.) I should really say the relationship is hostile in one direction only. Despite her devilish appearance, Phoebe is simply too friendly to hold a grudge against anyone. Puck, however, initially harbours a deep hatred for her roommate. Later on, they become quite good friends.

At first, I kind of had a plan for Phoebe to be an evil, catty kind of roommate from … well, hell. But as the strip progressed, that plan fell aside and she became this sweet (if kooky) character.

This is another strip that I shudder to look at now. (I know I keep saying this, but some of these early strips REALLY don’t represent my best work – even at the time!) I knew they weren’t good when I was drawing them, but I just didn’t have the time to redo them. Thankfully, the art (along with the jokes) in this series gets better over time. That said, the final panel of this one is still worth a laugh: decent physical comedy, if I do say so myself.
