Many of you were worried that Phoebe might meet a violent end in previous strips, but I reminded you of the fact that this is fiction, where (to quote Wilde) the good end happily and the bad end unhappily. The innocent are thus never mangled by Puck, while the scheming lowlifes like Colin are fair game. We sort of knew it was coming. So did Colin.

Ah violence: how I’ve missed drawing you!

I would take a moment to explain that Puck has the strength of ten full-grown men when she’s angry, but I don’t think I need to do that because (from my experience) that rule applies to ALL women.
