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 #42 in a series dating from my university days. Puck ran weekly for three full years in the Silhouette, McMaster University’s student newspaper.
And so begins the nudity saga. This strip is the first in a short, four-part running gag about Puck starting a nude protest on campus.
Anyway, this whole thing developed out of the endless requests for more thong bikinis in Puck. I ended up saying, “No, Phoebe doesn’t appear in a thong, but she will appear STARK NAKED in coming strips.” Even Colin ends up baring all.
I’ll state here that drawing naked people comes very easy to me. I spent A LOT of time drawing nudes in life drawing classes during my late teens, and I guess it left an impression.
