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 #54 in a series dating from my university days. Puck ran weekly for three full years in the Silhouette, McMaster University’s student newspaper.
This strip was one of the ‘summertime’ strips that appeared in the infrequent monthly summer issues of the Silhouette. (I always tried to keep the strips vaguely seasonal.) I knew I wouldn’t be able to top Phoebe’s thong from strip 27, but I didn’t want to disappoint on her summer wardrobe, so I had her change from the usual outfit to the halter top and short shorts you see here. Looking at it now, her outfit is actually almost a uniform for girls on most campuses whenever the temperature is above freezing. Puck gets an outfit change too – one of the few in the series – though her ensemble is definitely less stylish than Phoebe’s.
