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!
Starting April 1st, a vote for Puck on TWC gets you access to printable Paper Doll Puck! It was all the rage in Victorian England, and that’s what I call a recommendation! A new outfit pops up every week in April, so VOTE!!!
Puck wasn’t the only one who didn’t know Colin’s last name until now. In preparation for this one, I had to give Colin a last name. Then, about a week ago, I suddenly developed a strong hunch that he already had a last name, and that it was stated only once on the old website or in one of the old comics. I also seemed to remember that it was ‘MacTavish’ (or ‘McTavish’) but I couldn’t prove anything. After carefully poring through all of the available documentation, however, I found that no last name had ever been mentioned for the poor guy.
So one glaring hole in the continuity has now been addressed. Though I don’t think it was a hole that bothered anyone, because I never once had anyone ask what Colin’s last name was. It seemed fitting to me that Puck never bothered to ask that question either.
Upon seeing this comic’s visuals, my wife’s eyebrow raised. “That’s a whole lot of argyle,” she noted.
“Too much argyle?” I asked.
“For me? Yes. For Puck? No.”
I guess that means I’m on the right track.
