The Cool Adventures of Puck-Man was a comic strip created by the Dozerfleet founder back in 1994. It was the first comic strip to be saved for any length of time, and marked the beginning of the collection that would eventually evolve into Dozerfleet Productions.
In the fall of 1994, the Dozerfleet founder was in 5th grade. The class had access to a lot of the hockey equipment at Holy Trinity Lutheran School. Two hockey balls that were specific to the 5th and 6th grades, however, had developed cracks in them. These cracks allowed so that when the orange balls were squeezed from the sides, they looked like Pac-Man.
The class held a competition to determine whose drawing of "Puck-Man" would be the winner and would get the designation of being the accepted class mascot. The Dozerfleet founder contributed heavily to the artwork, but was ultimately turned down for the final drawing after his art submissions were stolen. The thief never confessed as was never revealed. Steve, a classmate, won the contest in lieu of the event.
Nevertheless, the Dozerfleet founder persisted to make a comic strip and short stories about Puck-Man and his world. This strip was completely disposed of when the collection evolved into Flamingo Entertainment.
Puck-Man is a hero on a sports-themed planet who saves the day by devouring gangsters that look like miniature hockey sticks. Much of his world was inspired by that in Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog.
The hero of the series was known for many adventures in which he would rescue children from the hockey stick gangs and would even get transported by rays from special guns to random locations. His one weakness was coleslaw. A creature made out of this material, known as the Coleslaw Creature, became the archnemesis of the strip.
Puck-Man would eventually settle down with his feminine counterpart.
For a time, he fought crime while wearing a Zorro mask and employed cruelty to vent his anger. This short set was dubbed The Meaner, Nastier Puck-Man. It was made in response to some of the experiments being done with Batman in the comics world at that time. Puck-Man returned a few times as a ghost to aid Golf-Man.
