Desert Bussing

Today, I have made the trek to Victoria to visit my friends at Desert Bus! I will be popping in to DBHQ sometime this afternoon... and will even be driving the fabled virtual bus myself, starting at 4pm PST! I'm only doing an hour long guest shift, which is nothing compared to the insane 24-hour shifts the Loading Ready Run gang have been taking. But their generous donators have paid good money for their suffering, and I would hate to interrupt it for too long!

In other news, here's a sneak peek at one of the bonus goodies our Book Club members will be receiving in mid December. This desktop -- which is actually based on a new disappearing/reappearing "magic" mug that we'll be selling through Topatoco -- features nearly every major ninja mafioso the comic has ever seen. (Although in some cases, they haven't been seen for a long, long time!)



All our Book Club members will receive this desktop -- plus some other exclusive desktops and a never-before-seen classic comic -- on December 16th! If you want to join too, it's easy... all you have to do is pick up a copy of Sam and Fuzzy Fix Your Problem before the 15th. (And don't worry... if you've already bought a book, you will get them too!)

edit: Also, don't freak out or anything, but three new shirts just went on sale!

Desert Bus for Hope

Yep... It's that time of year once again! Desert Bus for Hope... where my friends from Loading Ready Run raise money for Child's Play by playing the most boring video game non-stop, 24 hours a day. Your donations will buy toys and games for children's hospitals around the world, and help extend my friends' torture. It's win win!

Sam and Fuzzy Q & A: Card Edition
Got a question you want answered? Just drop me an email with "Q & A" in the subject line!

"While I love email as much as the next person, I still find handwritten cards to carry an extra bit of sentiment that an email doesn't convey. Last year I got some from Chris Hallbeck's "The Book of Biff" and they were a big hit. I'd love to send a Sam & Fuzzy themed one this year. So will you be offering a Christmas Card for sale in the next week or two?" -Ryan

Yes! We actually have a few Christmas card designs that will be going on sale at Topatoco in the super-near future. I'll be sure to mention it here as soon as they are available!

"Are Dr. Love's ears supposed to be Dr. Crab's scrunched up 'shoulders'?" -Miles

Yes!

Well, that was easy. Here, let me answer your other question.

"Also, does your M/W/F schedule ever annoy you? Isn't it aggravating that you can only advance the story a little bit every other day as opposed to the fast paced method of Andrew Hussie, who can post seven long conversations between four characters, three plot twists, and a major story push (via an amazing music accompanied flash montage) all in one day?" -Miles

Sometimes! But usually, I don't have time to be aggravated. I draw the equivalent of at least six pages of comics every week, or 24 every month... that is a lot by almost anyone's standard, and is pretty much as fast as I can possibly go!

It's true that other formats would allow me to move through the story faster -- and man, I love me some MS Paint Adventures -- but that's not the kind of comics I like to make myself. What can I say? I like having lots of pictures and as few speech bubbles per panel as possible. (Today's comic excepted, of course!)

"The 1337'th comic is coming up fast. Are you doing anything for it? It will be next friday. :)" -Nick

Sorry, Nick. Let's just say that it took me ten minutes to remember why 1337 was a special number in the first place. That probably answers your question right there!

That's a wrap for this week! See you on Monday!

Swag

I think we may be on the verge of unleashing some of our new mug and shirt designs. I will keep you posted here (and on twitter) as soon as it all goes live!

And just a reminder... anyone looking to get an original art commission in time for the holidays should get in touch with me soon. If you're interested, you can find more info about it here.
