This is where we used to live
The old apartment! Boy, it's been a long time since I had to draw this sucker. (A copy of the omnibus has been living on my desk for the last little while so I can dig for appropriate reference material.)
Did you know: in the original strips, there were almost no shots of Sam and Fuzzy's apartment building from the outside? Prior to today's strip, I'm pretty sure this is the clearest view we ever had of the front door. To current me, that seems like madness... establishing a sense of setting is so important! But at least it means I've learned one or two things in the last 14 years.
Also, unless I'm terribly mistaken, we never saw their actual apartment number. So I've made one up! (There was a reference to it being four floors up, though, which is why it's a 400 number.) See... we're learning SHOCKING SECRETS ABOUT THE PAST already!
Come back on Friday for a new comic and a new round of reader Q and A. (If you have a question you'd like me to answer, just pop it in an email with "Q and A" in the subject line.) See you then!
