Sam and Fuzzy Q & A: Contractual Edition
Got a question you want answered? Just drop me an email with "Q & A" in the subject line!
"So did Fuzzy not sign his name Eric in this comic, or did everyone just play along with the fact that it was under a different name?" -Leann
This was, I'm sorry to say, the one major continuity flub in Sam and Fuzzy history!
When I came up with the idea that pre-amnesia Fuzzy had a different name (Eric), I didn't think about how it would contradict that story! Clearly, that contract has to be signed "Fuzzy", or else everyone reading it would have reacted very differently when they saw it. But since it was signed by pre-amnesia Fuzzy, it should have said Eric!
To fix the flub, I introduced this relatively mild retcon, where Mr. Sin reveals that Hazel and Fuzzy used pseudonyms when they worked for him on the original Buddy Bear project (and on other sketchy endeavours). "Fuzzy" was the alias that Eric used on that job, and possibly some other ones as well.
"Um... didn't you say your new pinup thing would be out 'this fall'?" -Alex
I did, I did! I'm sorry. I keep getting hijacked by other stuff! The second pinup ebook is made entirely of new material, so it wound up being a lot more work than the first one. But it's almost done. Really!
If you're impatient, I've posted a bunch of preview pictures (as well as some cut/alt ones from the first book) in the Secret Art Vault, for folks backing the Patreon at the art vault level.
"Is Carlyle secretly Sam from the future?" -Camurrant
No, but that was a popular fan theory at the time.The idea is somewhat... uh... explored... in an exclusive bonus comic Rikk Estoban drew for the Sam and Fuzzy Omnibus! (Which you can by physically here or digitally here.)
That's a wrap for this week, team! See you on Monday.
