After last week’s interlude we’re back with a new strip all about old-timey team names, and the tendency for fans of the good old days to mythologize excessively.
Welcome to week three of Shinny! This week we learn that the lessons of hockey are universal, abstractable to all corners of life. In this example, we learn that the role of enforcer/thug/goon has meaning in responsible parenting.
Week two already! Let’s delve deeper into the relationship between Shinny and her boyfriend, an enthusiastic young man who is blissfully unaware of certain hockey protocol. For example: there are certain gifts that should not be given to fans of teams who have not won the Cup.
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.
Russian Machine Never Breaks is proud to announce the debut of our new webcomic, Shinny!
Brought to you by writer Peter Hassett and illustrator Rachel Cohen, Shinny! is a weekly comic all about hockey fandom. It’s the story of how hockey breaks and mends hearts, how it brings people together and smashes people together, and how there’s a place for everyone in it. Plus: hockey jokes.
