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!
@Guest: I don't think I'm going to put the pregnant redhead and the mob boss into an open confrontation because the collateral damage might take out five city blocks. And I can't even comprehend the results of Daphne entering the fray.
@Nobi Wan Kenobi: You know what's funny? If I made this guy look like a real mobster (and in my town, I've known a few), no one would get the joke. They'd be like, "Fat Italian guy? Huh?" By being wildly inaccurate, people get the joke. Weird.
@darknoon: You know, you're right. I really didn't make use of enough mobster cliches. As it is, people may confuse this guy with your average Italian with above-average fashion sense and below-average mastery of English.
@Caseyorourke: I really wanted to use more cheesy mobster dialogue, but there wasn't room. Now you've done it for me. Thanks!
