Sam and Fuzzy Q & A: Time Edition
Got a question you want answered? Just drop me an email with "Q & A" in the subject line!
"So is there a particular time period S&F takes place in, other than 'now-ish'? Because Candice's flashback smartphone threw me a loop." - Nicholas
In the 14 years (!) that I've been drawing the comic, just over six years have passed in-universe in the comic. So, depending on which side of those 14 years you count from, the Classic Era could take place as early as 2002 or as late as 2010!
I generally avoid mentioning specific years in the comic, but personally, I tend to lean more towards the "rolling present" interpretation than the one that slowly turns the comic into a period piece. So I guess that's where the smart phone comes from!
I think it was just strategic! Sticking with the ninjas was the better long-term goal. And short term, as long as he was possessing the body of one of them, the other two ninjas would be on "his side" in a combat situation. If he had switched into Hazel's body, he wouldn't have any peons to come to his aid, and might even end up having to fight them.
"Was wondering if Brian's cat like form is a personal choice of his or if that's just the way he is? Like can members of Hart and Brian's species pick their shape?" -Sean
That's a good question! I can't say now, but we'll find out a lot more about Brain and his kind in future chapters.
OK, team! I gotta go get ready to head out to Victoria for the Camosun Comics festival and keynote talk! If you're going to be in Victoria yourself this weekend, you should swing on by... both events are free to attend!
