Hi everybody. Welcome to Shinny! We’ll be here every Tuesday morning with a new strip about three very different hockey fans. Let’s jump right in with our first comic ever– a discussion about hockey purity between a father, his daughter, and an idiot.
Thanks for reading. If you like what you see, please help spread the word. Post this mess on Facebook or check us out on Tumblr. Much appreciated! See you back here next week.
PANEL 1: Dad, mad at TV
TV (OS): …The NHL board of governors is considering instituting hybrid icing and new penalties for dangerous hits in this upcoming season…
DAD: What?! This. Shall. Not. Stand.
They’re destroying the game! I don’t even recognize it anymore. What you see now is just a hollowed-out husk of what men used to call HOCKEY.
PANEL 2: Shinny declaring, BF considering
SHINNY: Naw, Dad. They’re just tweaking the game to keep it exciting. If they didn’t, players would adjust to the rules, and it’d be stifling.
BF: Hmm. No, I’m with your dad on this one, Shinny. The magic is gone.
PANEL 3: BF wide-eyed and nostalgic
BF: The puck doesn’t even glow anymore!
