Well, here it is: the beginning of the end. This strip starts the last storyline of the original run, which ultimately concludes at strip #80. I know that eighty strips may seem a small number, and looking back on it, I suppose it is.

The strip ended when I graduated from university. There was a certain natural closure there.

So here we have Puck wrestling with the big question about university life: is it really worth it? And trust me: I wrestled with this same question all too often. Suffice it to say that I didn’t particularly enjoy university. Still, there were parts I liked, and I’m glad I went. The part of university that I liked the most was probably Puck.

I’m also glad that I eventually graduated.
