Sam and Fuzzy Q & A: Belated Monday Edition
Got a question you want answered? Just drop me an email with "Q & A" in the subject line!
"Do you have the dreaded swine flu?" -Myles
Nope! The bug that kept me from doing the Q and A on Friday was of the quick and brutal variety. I was feeling pretty much fine again the next day. No cause for alarm!
"So now that no one is actively trying to murder Sam... did he ever tell his old friends (Lance, Alexa, Andrea, Ackerman, etc.) what was going on? (And did he ever finish paying off that taxi?)" -Richard
Yup! You can actually see the start of that conversation back in this comic. I'm sure he's had lots of chances to expand on the subject since then... especially since N-M-S is currently renting Alexa's upstairs office.
As for the taxi, I'm pretty sure Sam managed to pay it off while he was working for Noosehead. Sure, he wasn't earning much of a salary... but it wasn't much of a taxi, either.
"When Sam and Fuzzy were on the run from Black's men, they had help from Aaron and Ox from Fuzzy's ninja squad. So why was Commander Scott on the opposite side when his original platoon was in danger?" -Jordan
Probably because Scott hated his squad... not to mention most of the Ninja Mafia command! After all, they did make him into a table. When Black was recruiting traitors, Scott was likely the first in line.
"Have you thought about how you’d eventually like to end Sam & Fuzzy? I hope its not for very long time, but I know that the comic has to end eventually, and I just want to know that, when it is over, it will get a proper ending instead of just a sudden halt of updates like so many other comics that have hurt me in the past. " -Danny
I generally think about each era of Sam and Fuzzy -- the taxi/bookstore years, the Noosehead saga, and now the N-M-S stuff -- as it's own distinct comic. And just like it's predecessors, the current comic will gradually build to a definitive and (hopefully!) satisfying conclusion.
After that, I'll launch the next one! It might be a new Sam and Fuzzy story, or something focusing on other members of the cast, or something completely different and unrelated! We'll see what makes the most sense when the time comes. It's still much too early in our current story to be worrying about the next one. (I know I have a reputation for obsessively planning ahead, but even I'm not that organized!)
That's all for today. See you on Wednesday!
