MegaFuzzy Original Art Auction

Don't forget... the MegaFuzzy art is up for auction until Monday! The winner will receive both the original 11x14 art and copy #1 of the final colour print.

And just like we did with the Bat Fuzzy art auction, I'll also be including an original sketch of any Sam and Fuzzy character you like... only this time, you can cast them as the gaming character of your choice. (Or not, if you don't wanna.) Last time, superheroes were the theme, and we wound up with Detective Morris and Officer Cooper as the Question and Batwoman. I'm really curious to see what I end up drawing this time!



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

"Soooo, when is the next volume of Sam and Fuzzy books coming out? Also, what happened to the emails with cool goodies in them?" -Franklin

The penultimate chapter of "Sam and Fuzzy Are Very Famous" is the one you are reading right now! The next chapter will be the grand finale of book 2, which I'll start putting together the second it has concluded. With a little luck, it should be ready in time for this year's San Diego Comic-Con!

As for our Book Club bonus packs, don't worry... I'm working on the next batch as we speak! I should be able to announce them extremely soon.

"Is there any way I can persuade you to make an appearance at the Boston Comic-con in April? Or would that put you too close to Mr. Jacques?" -Mike

I'd love to... but alas, my limited time and travel budget restrict my trips over to that side of the continent to a select few. (Which is why my con schedule is generally so west-coast heavy!) Maybe next year, though. I know Shannon is dying to go to Boston someday, and I wouldn't mind checking out the city myself!

"I've been reading Sam and Fuzzy regularly since somewhere around 2005. Alas, after one too many crowbars, my memory isn't it used to be. The only character I recognize in the background of this strip strip is Pintsize. I feel like I should know the names of others, but they're just not coming too me. Am I right? Can you help? Because that would just make my day." -Jessica

Don't feel too bad! I generally avoid sneaking Sam and Fuzzy characters into the underground crowds, since most of them wouldn't really have any reason to be there. The few existing characters who do appear in that strip (and the two that follow it) are generally continuity outsiders... Pintsize, Professor Pangolin, and a few ancient, long-unused characters of mine. The rest were just drawn at random!

But hey... two strips later, we did see Mr. Gillespie! He's Sam and Fuzzy's most constantly beleaguered and frequently cameo-making small businessman. He seems to have gained a metal plate in his head since the last time we saw him, which I'm sure will only adds to his mystery and legend. I like to think of his tragic, tangental story as one the audience writes in their own heads.

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

Ratfist

One of the many cartoonists I had the good fortune to talk to at ECCC this year (however briefly) was Doug TenNapel. Doug is probably best known as the creator of Earthworm Jim, but he's also the author of nearly a dozen wildly inventive and completely gorgeous black and white graphic novels. (Creature Tech and Iron West being my personal favourites.) And now, he has decided to throw his hat into the webcomic ring with Ratfist -- a superhero comedy that's completely bent in the best possible way. If you like completely absurd long-form comedy adventures -- and face it, you wouldn't be here if you didn't -- you should definitely check it out!

In other news, don't forget... the MegaFuzzy original art is currently up for grabs on ebay! The auction closes on Monday.

ECCC

Thanks to everyone for another great Emerald City Comic-con! As always, I had a great time visiting my cartooning comrades and meeting plenty of Sam and Fuzzy readers both new and old. Sometimes alarmingly old! (Thanks for reminding me that I've somehow gotten away with doing this for nine flippin' years!)

The new Mega Fuzzy went over pretty well. But don't worry, non-ECCC-ers... I made a second batch just for you, which we'll be putting up for sale online in a week or two. And as is tradition, I'll also be putting the original artwork up for auction, starting later today. I'll post a link here as soon as it goes live!

edit

The Mega Fuzzy art auction is now live! Winner receives the original art, plus a copy of the print and an original sketch. Check it out here!
