Webcomic: Puck

Puck is a weekly webcomic that started as a comic strip of the Mc Master University newspaper starring Robin "Puck" Goodfellow, an ancient fairy of lore whose lives changes when someone leaves a dog girl named Daphne on her doorstep and starts attending the university to "increase her earning power." There she meets Phoebe, a hot she-devil and daughter of the university president, who just so happens to be Satan, and Colin, her boyfriend.

The series is divided in two; the first part happens during Puck and company's university years (the original run of the strip in black and white); the second part occurs after a time skip of 10 years (the real time between the last strip and the restart).

Puck provides examples of:

  • Art Evolution: Considering that there was a real time Time Skip of 10 years is expected to see the art become more sharp.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Phoebe and the waitresses in "HOWLERS", Puck too in a couple of strips because she is pregnant and her clothes don't fit.
  • Be Careful What You Wish For: When Puck needs a job Phoebe tries to get her one in Howlers as a waitress but she couldn't get herself to do it and says that if there was a position where she didn't need to wear those outfits or being inside the bar she would take it, there is one, as the mascot Howlie:
    Puck: I asked for this torture, didn't I?
    Phoebe: Almost by name!
  • Berserk Button: Puck is VERY sensitive when it comes to her appearance.
  • Colour-Coded Emotions: Coloured halos often appear around characters' heads, indicating various emotions. The most common one is the 'red halo of rage' which encircles Puck on a regular basis. When she's feeling warm or maternal, the halo is pink. Shock is shown through a yellow halo, and sickness or uneasiness is often green.
  • Morning Sickness: Puck suffers from morning sickness in the early stages of her pregnancy.
  • Longest Pregnancy Ever: Due to the weekly updates of the strip, Puck's pregnancy actually spanned over two and a half years in real time, testing the patience of all but the most diehard readers.
  • Wacky Cravings: Puck develops cravings for French fries in the middle of the night. And blood.
  • Nude Nature Dance: Puck does a nude nature dance in the middle of her university campus after going crazy and attempting to return to a natural, unburdened state.
  • Expressive Ears: Puck, Phoebe and Daphne all have ears that emote something fierce.
