That's right... high-resolution, drm-free, pdf-format Sam and Fuzzy ebooks are now available for purchase! I know a bunch of you have been asking for these, so I'm happy to finally oblige.
And of course, for those of you who prefer traditional dead-tree format... we've got those, too!
I've also made our previous bonus pack of desktop and mobile backgrounds available for purchase, for those of you who missed it. It can be had for a donation of a dollar or more. (I'd like to do more of that kind of thing!)

"In the last two panels of Wednesday’s page, Hazel refers to Fuzzy as, well, Fuzzy. I thought his name had been Eric prior to the memory loss, and since this is a prologue, wouldn’t that be the only name Hazel associates with him?" -Luke
There's been a bit of confusion about when this story's recently completed flashback took place. Understandable, since Sam and Fuzzy's history is complicated and has been presented non-linearly! Here is a rough break down of events, in chronological order.
-Hazel, Brain and Eric work together as a team of thieves for many years
-Hazel and Brain erase Eric's brain for unknown reasons
-Eric wakes up in a dumpster. Hazel pretends not to know him, calls him Fuzzy, and runs away
-Fuzzy tracks down Hazel and convinces her to make him her partner
-Hazel grows annoyed that Fuzzy isn't much like Eric
-Hazel abandons Fuzzy
-A couple of years later (in the flashback you just read), Hazel unexpectedly stumbles across Fuzzy again and hides before he can see her. (Fuzzy will not see her again until a decade after she abandoned him)
Does that help clear things up? By the time the events of this recent flashback occurred, Hazel has accepted that Fuzzy and Eric are essentially different people. (Perhaps with some frustration.) So that's why she calls him Fuzzy when she sees him. The only person who still refers to Fuzzy as "Eric" is Brain, and he only really does it to taunt him.
"Are there mermaids in the sam and fuzzy universe?" -Sean
There is definitely intelligent sentient sea life. That's all I want to say at this point!
We return next week, with new comics for all! See you then.
