Trevor suffers from the daily challenges that we all go through; an ATM that won’t give you your money, lecturers from hell, 3am cramming for tests, cold pizza and lunatic friends. He is subject to all the social dilemmas, temptations and conflicting choices which make up the pattern of modern society. The strip is basically about the inter-relationships between various characters in different situations.
The characters in the strip appeal to a wide range of readers, and fit into almost any social, domestic, business or other circumstances. This gives the strip as a whole considerable depth, as well as great flexibility.
