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 #34 in a series dating from my university days. Puck ran weekly for three full years in the Silhouette, McMaster University’s student newspaper.
Here’s another glimpse into the office of Satan, who also happens to be the University’s president. As you can probably tell from looking at the Vice-o-tron 9000, I have a real thing for dated technology. I like all those dials and buttons and flip switches that they had on 50’s-era sci-fi robots. Notice the pitchfork antenna: a little devilish flourish.
I’ll let you decide whether the Vice-o-tron 9000 was actually designed to give read-outs on all campus sin or whether it was just designed to explode. I suppose it really doesn’t matter in the end.
I just noticed that I went out of my way with the backgrounds on this strip. Not even a line to vaguely suggest the existence of something behind the characters – that’s a new low, even for me!
