Sam and Fuzzy Q & A: Robot Clone Edition
Got a question you want answered? Just drop me an email with "Q & A" in the subject line!
"In this comic, the ninja mafia noobs have gray on the forehead parts of the masks. Are they just colored differently from true ninja mafiosos? Or are they like shadows or something from reduced coverage?" -Anthony
The grey patterns on their masks, as well as the numbers on their arm bands, are to denote their cadet status. (And relative ranks as such!)
Side trivia: since she was a relatively new recruit, I am retroactively interpreting the triangular marking on Sexxica's mask as the indicator of the final rank held prior to becoming a fully-fledged rank-and-file mafioso.
"What's up with the last 6 or so Q&As being the "Candlestick Maker Edition"? The Candlestick Maker must be really important!" -Jonathan
Whoops! My goof. But don't worry! I've gone back and hastily renamed several of them with the first things that popped into my head.
"Are Carlyle or Sid ever going to make a comeback in the series? I'm quite frankly surprised Carlyle isn't apart of the secret world-ruling council. Seems like a natural fit for him." -Johnny
He may be deserving, but I think Carlyle is too strong a force of all that is pure and good to associate with the likes of those scoundrels on the committee. (And on a more outside-the-comic level, Carlyle is a character that works best when handled delicately and primarily symbolically, so I wouldn't want to reintroduce him into the comic without having a really compelling purpose.
As for Sid, he is definitely a character I'd like to check in again with someday! But it's all about finding the appropriate place -- if there is one -- in the current story. We'll see!
That's a wrap for this week, team. See you on Monday!
