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 #78 in a series dating from my university days. Puck ran weekly for three full years in the Silhouette, McMaster University’s student newspaper.
We march ever closer to the last strip of the original run. Puck continues her funk. Wearing only her undies. Nothing says “funk” like various states of slovenly undress. And drool. Like I’ve said before, this comic series should have won an award for most nudity.
