Sam and Fuzzy Q & A: Vampires, Cyborgs, and Ninjas Edition
Got a question you want answered? Just drop me an email with "Q & A" in the subject line!
"Why exactly is Sam not wearing any sort of disguise? I mean, it's obvious that people recognise him for who he is in this city, and 2 people have already called him out. As far as I can tell, Sam isn't that stupid. After going to all the trouble to make a new identity, isn't it kinda obvious that you shouldn't come looking exactly like the guy you're trying not to be?
This might have become more obvious since you first sent me this question, but: Sam isn't wearing a disguise because he doesn't have to wear a disguise! As far as the law is concerned, he's a different person now... such is the all-reaching power of the committee. (As we've seen before with Mr. Sin.) He is legally untouchable, at least as far as his past life is concerned, so no matter how many people recognize him, he can't be arrested for anything the "old" him did.
Now, if Sam was looking for a fresh start, then sure, he'd probably throw on a disguise and try to start a new, unrecognizable life. But I don't think Sam is looking for a fresh start. I think he's looking to pick up exactly where he left off, and flaunt his ability to do so in a bitter and sarcastic fashion.
"I couldn’t help to notice, that you drew Fuzzy as the Tequila monster from Questionable Content… and I know you guys are webcomic-friends so… my question is… who copied who?... I mean, I’ve heard some stories about web comics using the tequila monster… but never knew who really invented it… (other than the tequila god itself of course…)" -Avael
The tequila monster is all Jeph's! Fuzzy was strictly temporarily filling-in for the real tequila monster. The idea was suggested in the livestream chat while I was doing the "New Jobs" Sketch-Off, and since Jeph is one of my oldest webcomic bros, I thought it'd be a fun thing to do. And it was!
"Have you ever considered adding hilarious alt-text to the comic, like with Dr. McNinja?" -Harold
It's not something that's set up in my current archive system... but we are in the process of building a brand new Sam and Fuzzy site! (HONEST!) So maybe... in the future!
