All throughout June, we’ll be paying tribute to Baywatch, that awful show from the 90’s! Because hey, if Hollywood is doing it… Get your beach on and vote for Puck on TWC! And remember, this idea came from THE PATRONS! Patrons on Patreon who pledge $5 or more a month get a personal say in what incentives are coming your way! If YOU want to put your two cents in, then my HEAD ON OVER TO PATREON and join the select club!


As for this comic…

For some of you who previously said, “I hope this isn’t where this arc is going,” guess what! It’s going there!

To clarify (because I mentioned it before but it should be said again), what follows is largely autobiographical. The next arc is based on real life experience. Which I suppose you can consider a bit of a spoiler, because yes, Colin comes out the other side okay, because I obviously lived to make this comic. But fear not: for those worrying that this is a tonal shift too drastic for a comic like this, I’ll be keeping it suitably ridiculous as I am usually wont to do.

I learned from TV Tropes that Puck loosely falls into the genre of ‘Life Embellished’, where the core themes and stories are basically based in real life, but there’s a heavy overlay of crazy, wacky crap on top. So sometimes the stories hook more toward the embellishment; other times, they hook more toward life. This one’s just more the latter.

And for the record, the doctor did not offer me monster truck stickers after telling me. I did, though, immediately go out to the toy store and buy a large red Lego truck after the diagnosis. I explained the reasoning to my wife later that night: “Well, today wasn’t all bad,” I said. “On the bad side, I was diagnosed with cancer. But on the plus side, I got a Lego truck.”

Sometimes I have impeccable logic.
