As for this comic…

My wife caught a glimpse of the fourth panel zoomed in on Tracee while I was working on it. She was slightly alarmed.
HER: Gah! Tracee’s showing her boobs to someone? Who’s Tracee showing her boobs to?
ME: Uh, you’ll see.
HER: Is she showing her boobs to you?
ME: What? No! I’m not a character in the comic, silly.
HER: But is she showing her boobs to you in your mind.
ME: (Awkardly long pause) No.
At that point she walked away.

For the record, the suspiciously happy painter in the background of panel four does bear a strong resemblance to me. Not intended, of course. Consciously, at least. (Though I don’t wear ascots and berets on a regular basis. Which is a shame, really, because it looks simply smashing!)

Whoa, check it out! Plot! We haven’t seen stereotypical mobster Tony Bruno since his ill-fated attempt to run for mayor, but he’s never far from our hearts. He’s only back for this one comic, though, so get your fill of pinstripes while you can!

As for this comic…

I sometimes write jokes that maybe only five people on the planet will find funny. This is one of those. For those who don’t know, Richard Burton was an actor who famously married Elizabeth Taylor … twice.

For those of you who are wondering about the nature of the ‘ruse’ mentioned in panel one, I don’t really have any answers. Makeup? Magic? Who knows? It’s Hollywood, man. They’re creative.

Initially my concept was that Taylor would have sold her soul to the devil for eternal youth, but that didn’t sit right with me. What I know of Elizabeth Taylor tells me that she would not sell her soul to the devil for anything. She would, however, marry him and give it an honest try before divorcing him a few years later. She’d totally do that.

As for this comic…

. I am aware that the significance of this revelation loses its potency if you don’t know who Elizabeth Taylor is, and I’m sure some insanely large percentage of my readership doesn’t know who Elizabeth Taylor is, but I don’t care. She’s only quite possibly the second most famous actress ever to come out of Hollywood. Google her.

Those who do know who Elizabeth Taylor is will be wondering about the logistics of all this, but it’ll be explained soon.

I was on the fence whether to have the portrait out of frame, or whether to actually try my hand at drawing a real person adapted into the Puck style. In the end I opted to be brave, though I’m not entirely sure the result is a success. Oh well. When you’re trying to draw one of the most beautiful women the world has ever produced, you have to expect some level of failure, I guess.

As for this comic…

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.

VOTING INCENTIVE: DAPHNE GOES EXTREME!!!!!!

Alas, I’ve been running a little late on the voting incentives because of the time I’ve been spending trying to generate the Puck book. (It’s been a bit of a nightmare, but it’s coming together at long last.) That said, remember to vote on August 1st to see the Liefeldian Puck comic cover with all of the characters, including 90’s comic Colin.

As for this comic…

I felt like something a little summery for the first week of July. Those of you who have been around for a while (or those of you who have seen the downloadable beach day wallpaper from the store) may recognize that this is Daphne’s standard bathing suit.

How come characters in comics always have those double-scoop ice cream cones? Have you ever seen real people walking around with those? I mean, they’re sort of impractical. Anyway, who am I to buck tradition?

The Liefeldian Daphne is now up! Go vote on TWC to see the best of what the 90's has to offer!

As for this comic…

Another bit player come in for a brief showing! It’s Tyler (formerly Taylor), Daphne’s quasi-boyfriend but not really! We haven’t seen him since #158! I felt it necessary to softly bring him back in, because a few of the future story arcs will feature him a bit more.

I want to stress that Daphne’s final line does not mean that she’s Catholic. I think Daphne would be just the sort of person to carry around a bunch of stuff from a variety of world religions, just in case they were useful for some plot or scam. You just never know, right?

VOTING INCENTIVE: PHOEBE GOES EXTREME!!!!!!

Sorry guys. I couldn’t get the time to quite complete the next in the series of Liefeldian Puck portraits, so you get a few more days to see 90’s Phoebe. The new one will be up shortly! (It’s already drawn and inked on paper, but I’m currently in Quebec City with no scanner, so you guys will have to wait!)

As for the comic...

The Hotdog Guy returns! Mainly because we haven’t seen him in a million years, and he had to show up sooner or later. Puck doesn’t seem to be eating the hotdogs when she goes there, I’ve realized. The last two times, she’s managed to crush them in uncontrolled rage. Waste of a good hotdog if you ask me.

Next week, it’s back to Satan’s mansion as we check in on the craziness over there! Yay!

NEW JULY VOTING INCENTIVE: PHOEBE GOES EXTREME!!!!!!

Have you ever wanted to see Phoebe reinterpreted as an Image comic circa 1993? Of course you didn’t! And that’s why I’m here to make your non-dream a reality! A vote on TWC gets you a glimpse of Liefeld-level majesty! Check back every week this month as I 90’s-ize all of the primary Puck characters!

As for this comic...

Not a ‘funny ha ha’ strip, perhaps, but I wanted to more clearly illustrate the type of woman Puck’s dealing with here.

And I’m aware that the punch line plays on a pop culture ref that’s older than most of my readership. Sorry about that. But if you’ve never heard the song, so yourself a favour and go check it out here. You hear that sound, young’ns? That’s called music.
