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!
See the next comic (and the next one and the next one and the next one) RIGHT NOW at the new Puck website! Give it a visit for all the latest updates, all here: WWW.PUCKCOMICS.COM
It’s come to my attention that certain readers have been nearly driven to the point of insanity by this interminable birthing story arc, and that fact amuses me to no end. Because nothing amuses me more than beating a dead horse long past its expiry date. Still, take heart, readers! The baby is out at long, long last!
And no, Robert, there will be no afterbirth joke. Instead you get an umbilical cord joke. Because I like to be derivative in new and fresh ways.
For those who will judge Colin harshly for his confusion surrounding the umbilical cord, let me say this: unless you’ve been through this, you don’t know what an umbilical cord looks like, and whatever you think it looks like, you’re wrong. Hollywood will not help you on this either; they’re wrong too. One thing that is weird about a real umbilical cord is the colour: bluish, almost verging on turquoise. And cutting the thing is unsettling too. The nurse hands you tough, bulky scissors that look like they’re made for trimming tree branches, and even with such heavy-duty equipment on your side, it’s not an easy cut. The umbilical cord is decidedly … crunchy.
For those who are wondering, you actually see the baby (and find out the gender) next week. In strip 200. Just like I promised a million years ago.
