Sam and Fuzzy Q & A: Mystery (Wo)Man Edition
Got a question you want answered? Just drop me an email with "Q & A" in the subject line!
"Hang on... did you just mention your comics in book form in last week's Q&A? I always thought you were never going to do a book as your comics are too long. Have you just revealed your secret future plans?" -Andrew
That's the plan! I've been writing our current saga with the express intent of translating it into a set of books. "Inhuman" is the last chapter of what will be the first book, which I hope to get published in time for San Diego Comic-con. And if you go back and read the previous stories of Volume 5, I think you'll probably see the structure of that single book peeking out from behind the various stand-alone stories.
(Please do not think this plan means that I've given up on collecting all the previous volumes on Sam and Fuzzy, though! Ideally, there will eventually be a second set of books that contain that material. But one step at a time!)
"Who did Fuzzy find Hazel talking to?" -Eleanor
Apparently no one! But, uh... the story isn't over yet!
"Has anyone guessed who the person that Hazel has been secretly talking to is yet?" -Becky
I have seen at least one correct guess in my inbox. But keep in mind, Sam and Fuzzy encourages only the finest in rampant, completely outrageous speculation from its readers. Therefore, the guesses I've seen so far have included:
- pretty much every character that has ever appeared in the comic
- a brand new character (or characters) that we've never seen before
- some sort of spirit, demon or other intangible entity
- Hazel herself (now we're talking!)
- Robert Boyle (too obvious)
Thanks to everyone who has taken the time to send in their crazy theories! They're all canon in my heart. (Especially the one about mind-controlling wigs.)
"How do you get your ink drawings so clean on the computer? When I scan my ink drawings the paper comes in grey and theres usually pencil lines I tried very hard to erase everywhere. What do you do to make it just white, black and grey?" -Spencer
This is a question that keeps popping up every now and then! You can find an extensive explanation of how I get crisp black and white scans waaaaay back in one of our first Q and As. (As for the grey, I add that part afterward in Photoshop!)
That's a wrap for this week! We return on Monday with more comics. See you then!
