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 #59 in a series dating from my university days. Puck ran weekly for three full years in the Silhouette, McMaster University’s student newspaper.
Oh, where to begin? This strip shows serious signs of what I’ll now call “chibi disease.” For no reason whatsoever, the characters’ heads began to grow larger. It was a weird change in style; it only lasted for a few strips, and then it was gone as quickly as it had arrived. The weirdest part of the whole thing was that I DIDN’T EVEN KNOW THEIR HEADS WERE HUGE. Honestly.
A friend of mine looked at this strip when it was published and said “What’s wrong with you? Her head is enormous.” I had to do a double take. Giant headism is an irritating tendency in my drawings that I have to fight even to this day. I have no idea why.
You’ll notice Daphne is playing on a PS1. The game she’s playing is obviously a rip-off of Twisted Metal 2. Oh, how I loved that game.
