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 #75 in a series dating from my university days. Puck ran weekly for three full years in the Silhouette, McMaster University’s student newspaper.
The Phoebe date story concludes. And Phoebe remains forever single, for the fans’ sakes. (Kind of like Jackie Chan. Ever hear those stories about Japanese girls committing suicide in the 80’s because Jackie Chan started dating someone? Then they decided that Jackie could never publicly date anyone? Well, it’s not quite that big a deal here.)
Now, I have to explain the word ‘tuque’ here. A tuque is a Canadian term that refers to a knitted winter hat. I thought that all English-speaking countries used this word, but I’ve since found out that this is not the case. It’s pronounced ‘tewk’ (rhymes with ‘puke’) and I think it’s a good word. Pity it’s not more widespread.
