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!
The next few comics delve (lightly) into Phoebe’s history, which is a subject readers have expressed interest in.
It is my firm belief that ‘winning’ people (whether that winning factor comes from looks, athleticism, money, charm or all of the above) often turn out to be obnoxious human beings unless they taste what it’s like to be a loser at some point in time in their lives. Whenever I meet an alpha-type adult who is also considerate and kind, I often find that they grew up poor, or awkward, or ugly, or shy, or all of the above.
That’s not to say that you can’t be a winner from birth and turn out a decent human being, of course. It does happen. But it’s an uphill climb.
