Clique this

Did you know our pal Amy has started a new comic? It is called Clique Refresh, and it is about dealing with internet friends, ferrets and adult problems in various combinations. You can read it right here. And you should!

Meanwhile, for those who are interested in art-nabbing, some of the original drawings from our last Sketch-Off are still available. Here are my favs of what remains:







There are a couple of others as well, though. You can see 'em all in the gallery here! If you spot one you'd like to buy, just drop me an email. (As is sketch-off tradition, they are $25 for the black-and-white pieces or $50 for colour.)

Gottacon starts this Friday. Hope to see some of you there!

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

"Will you be at TCAF this year? Will you have the omnibi? (not omnibuses, omnibi.) " -Sebastian

I will indeed! And yes, I should have at least a few copies of the Omnibus in tow at most of my shows starting with Emerald City. (It's tricky to bring too many to any single show, though, since they are huge and weigh a bajillion pounds!)

"I notice your arch-nemesis has a metal album. Which band is better, Deathmøle or Noosehead?" -Keith

Well, Deathmøle does have one pretty big advantage, in that the music actually exists! Noosehead, on the other hand, is as good as you imagine them to be. I personally always pictured them as a loud-yet-commercially-appealing nu-metal act, which doesn't necessarily bode well for the quality of the music. But maybe that's not what they sound like at all. For the true answer, LOOK INSIDE YOUR HEART.

"As a longtime reader, sometimes I do still pine for the long forgotten characters of older eras of Sam and Fuzzy. As the creator do you ever miss your older creations too, and which ones do you miss writing the most?" -James

It can be really hard to let old characters go -- especially the ones I really like! But in a story-driven comic, it happens. In some cases, like Sidney, the character reaches the end of a very definitive character arc, and I just don't have much else to say about them, so I don't mind letting them go. In other cases, I do miss working with them and really want to revisit them, but they don't have a logical role in the current story. Gertrude is one of my favourite characters, so she's a good example of that. It was really nice to finally bring her back last volume! But I'm glad I didn't try to cram her in earlier.

We return on Monday with a new comic! See you then, team.
