You know the drill: you get a box of cheap chocolate and it's got a legend telling you what's what, but what's REALLY in those chocolates? Puck's got the answers! Vote for Puck on TWC to find out!


As for this comic…

This one qualifies as the only Puck strip to ever actually make my wife laugh out loud. She's not a laugher by nature; she'll smirk, or say “That’s funny,” but real laughter is rare from her. In honesty, I guess it's rare from me too. The number of comics strips I’ve read that have made me (even momentarily) laugh I could probably count on one hand. But when my wife saw the pencils for panel three (just the image, without the speech bubbles added), she actually, legitimately laughed. I'm proud of that.

I have to admit that I love brass knuckles – the concept, not the actual brass knuckles. I love what brass knuckles say about a character: not that said character wants to kill, not that he wants to necessarily win a fight (I think you’d go with a knife or a gun for that), but that he wants to beat his victim to a bloody pulp with his fists more effectively. On that level, it's a weapon I respect. I also like the fact that brass knuckles are super-illegal in many places, including places where concealed hand guns are totally 100% acceptable. Places like the state of Texas.

If anyone would ever carry brass knuckles in a Coach clutch, it would be Tracee; I feel very certain of that. Some of you might wonder where, exactly, Tracee got that clutch from, given the fact that we haven’t seen it in any panels up to now, and the answer is… cartoon space. Believe it or not, I actually planned for her to not be carrying the clutch in earlier scenes, because I thought it just made the whole thing funnier.
