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 #49 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, the university’s president.
This is by far the funniest of all these Satan gags. It’s the little things that make it good: the evil pose of satisfaction, the Cheez Wams, the scurvy. Scurvy just strikes me as a really funny affliction. Perhaps it’s the connection to pirates, or the fact that it’s pretty much been eliminated the world over. Something about scurvy just makes me laugh. Even the name is funny. Now that said, I’m sure someone with scurvy will see this, and then I suppose I’ll be a horrible person.
Cheez Wams, by the way, make a few repeat appearances in this comic strip. They first appeared way back in strip #1.
