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!
Pavlov must have known his fair share of redheads.
So the Puck timeline and our real-life timeline intersect (however briefly) and I’m enjoying the inclusion of some seasonal gags. As you can clearly see.
After viewing this comic, my wife has concluded that pregnant chicks should never, ever wear cable-knit sweaters. Ever. I personally think it’s kind of cute. Besides, Puck needs to wear outfits like this: outfits that solidify Puck’s title as the whitest white woman on the face of the planet.

I just read through your FAQ and you mentioned you are a high school teacher now. Do your students know you make Puck and if they do, do they give you the metal sign for creating such and awesome peace of narrative?
@Lilyblack: I wasn't thinking so much in terms of complexion as I was Puck being culturally white. There are few non-white people who would ever wear such an outfit. And if they did wear such a thing, they would qualify as being white in spirit.
@Hitokiri Akins: Well, it's not a carefully guarded secret, but it's guarded enough that it's never come up. As I've said in my FAQ, it's just insurance against the odd unreasonable parent who might be offended by my creations.
Besides, as you implied, most students do not care about (or even vaguely comprehend) their teachers' personal lives. As far as most students are concerned, teachers finish the school day, climb into their hermetically sealed bubbles at the back of the class, and then emerge fifteen minutes before class starts the next day. We are mindless teaching automatons to them.
But seriously, one of the alternate reasons why I don't talk about Puck in class is the fact that doing so would shift the class from focusing on the subject and the students' learning to focusing on me. Teachers should be, in my opinion, not teaching lessons about their own greatness. It should all be about the subject and the students, in my humble opinion.
