Bat Fuzzy Returns
edit: The prints are now on sale!!
Today is the day! My Topatoco friends inform me that the "Bat Fuzzy" limited prints will be going on sale later today. We've only got a limited number of them, and I'm not sure how quick they'll go, so if you really want one... well... don't put it off too long!
And now, back to our regular scheduled programming!
Sam and Fuzzy Q & A: Guys-I-Can't-Answer-Your-Questions-About-Hazel/Brain/Eric-Theories-Those-Would-Be-Spoilers! Edition
Got a question you want answered? Just drop me an email with "Q & A" in the subject line!
"Do we ever get to see how Alphonso met Butcher?" -Angelica
Probably not! But we will be seeing Alphonso again. Scout's honour!
"When does the story of Sam and Fuzzy officially take place? Is the current story, for example, set in the year 2010?" -Alex
Sam and Fuzzy takes place in a kind of "rolling present." At any given time, the "present day" portions of the comic are meant to be happening right now, with everything that came beforehand placed accordingly. That's why I tend to use qualifiers like "ten years ago" rather than specific dates.
Of course after awhile, all those references to powdered wigs and betamax tapes are going to start getting a little suspiciously dated!
"Are you going to do more Bat-Fuzzy comics, or was the one with the backstory the only one? I love the idea of Sam as Robin! " -Maddie
You never know! Bat Fuzzy has been added to the reservoir of concepts we dip into whenever I want to run some non-story-related "filler" strips... but there is a lot of competition in that reservoir. Bitey and Skull Panda can get pretty vicious.
"What is your favourite Marvel character?" -Lizzy
Spider-man! Sorry, that's probably a pretty boring answer. I just really like the character!
I don't read a lot of super hero comics these days, but I do still follow Ultimate Spider-man and Brubaker's Captain America. In the reasonably recent past, I also enjoyed Bryan K Vaughan and Adrian Alphona's Runaways, and Mark Waid and Mike Wieringo's run on Fantastic Four. (Wieringo was a great talent that we lost much too soon.)
Also, not really a super hero book, but... I miss Nextwave.
That's it for this week. See you on Monday!
