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 #62 in a series dating from my university days. Puck ran weekly for three full years in the Silhouette, McMaster University’s student newspaper.
This is, in my opinion, one of the funniest strips in the whole series. (Now watch that no one likes it after I’ve said that; oh well.) So many things really work in this strip. There’s the name ‘Colnan’, which I find unreasonably humorous; there’s the picture of Colin showing off his mighty delts; there’s the very fact that he’s deluded enough to willingly roll up his shirt sleeves when other human beings are present. All funny.
Colin’s the sort of guy I wish I was: the type so convinced of his own magnetic charm that girls almost buy it.
