I wanted to do a small gag about internet trolls and flame wars and the PC vs Mac discussions is always a good place to start.

Since I grew up reading and later watching the animated series about gnomes and trolls by Wil Huygen and Rien Poortvliet, I decided to get inspired by the trolls drawn by Poortvliet. Well I wouldn’t call this an homage to him – that would be an insult. His art was just that great. But the troll in this strip is inspired by his work (or probably more the later and more simplistic animated series).
