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!
According to the rules of fashion, redheads are apparently never supposed to wear pink. Puck is the type of girl who breaks those rules.
By the way, for those familiar with the old university strips, this does signal the return of the hotdog guy – in a slightly different format.
No offense to the Jesus fans out there, of course. (Honestly, I think the Jesus fans all got scared off this comic long ago by the prominent role of Satan.)
CHECK OUT THE INCENTIVE: MAY THE FOURTH BE WITH YOU!!!
May the Fourth has passed, but that doesn’t mean you should miss your chance to see the Puck gang in ... attire. It may or may not feature a metal bikini! (Okay, it DOES feature a metal bikini.)
Though this particular incentive pic isn’t available through voting on TWC anymore, you can purchase the pic from the store. It’s only a buck for a set of five voting incentives! That’s what I call a deal!
Puck’s now on Facebook, so if you’re a Facebookian and you want reminders about strip updates and incentives and such, click that ‘like’ button HERE!!!
@Oz: Maybe your chin lives its own soul-stealing alternate life when you're sleeping.
@Half Moon: You want Psychotherapy Hotdogs? So the hotdogs ARE the psychotherapy? Wow. Must be high quality meat.
As for Puck's outfit, is is DEFINITELY not from Phoebe. I know this for certain. Reason #1: Phoebe never wears skirts or dresses. She will wear hip-hugger jeans, tight track pants or daisy dukes, but never a skirt or dress (except in one tongue-in-cheek voting incentive pic). Puck, on the other hand, never wears pants. Ever. She wore shorts in one strip and didn't like the experience.
Beyond that, this outfit passed the ultimate test of Puck appropriateness: my wife looked at the comic and said, "Cute outfit." My wife and Puck share very similar clothing tastes, so if my wife would wear it, it's Puck approved!
@Greg White: Puck will remain unemployed at least until the kid pops out. Hard to start a new career when you're pregnant.
@Lilyblack: I'm glad. I think most reasonable fans of Jesus would be able to recognize the spirit of fun that I try to employ in my pseudo-religious references. I think. I use my wife as a barometer. She's a minister's kid.
@Rook13: I'm so clued out that I had to ask my wife what 'pk' meant. She knows because she's one of them. Anyway, I'm glad that you recognize my largely well-meaning, humorous intentions and don't take offense. I don't want to offend reasonable fans of Jesus. And unreasonable people, well, there's usually no avoiding offending unreasonable people of all stripes, so I just aim to keep the reasonable people happy.
@msfcatlover: I'm glad that SOMEONE is happy about the return of hotdog guy. Most people seem to have forgotten about his existence.
