Sam and Fuzzy Q & A: Shapeshifting Edition
Got a question you want answered? Just drop me an email with "Q & A" in the subject line!
"Is Jess the only shapeshifter? If not is she the only shapeshifter we're aware of?" -Sean
I've never had much of a chance to explore the world of shapeshifters in the comic itself... but I got to dig quite deep into their species and culture in in The Underground! (Available now physically and digitally!) The first chunk of The Underground is basically a giant lore-filled guidebook to the history, people, species, places, and organizations that make up the world of Sam and Fuzzy. Shapeshifters included!
Anyhow, as the guide reveals, there are other shapeshifters, but their community is staunchly isolationist. Only a handful of shapeshifters leave their secret homeland to live among the other cultures of the Underground. (And those that do are generally viewed as kooky eccentrics.) So there aren't a ton of them running around.
That said, there is one other minor S&F character who is secretly a shapeshifter in disguise. Their identity is also revealed in The Underground! It's a fun easter egg for people who pick it up, so I won't spoil it here.
"So last time we saw Aaron he was running around Ninja Mafia HQ. The same HQ in which a Ms. Jess Star works. Did they uh, bump into each other? Maybe?" -Tom
Now, now, Tom... guest strips are NOT CANON. Even when they are as cute as that one! I think at this point, Aaron and Jess still haven't met. Amanda sure makes it look like they'd probably make a cute couple, though!
"Is Jess' assistant Fuzzy or Bonus? Even though this setup would be a classic Fuzzy scheme, I found him too happy to be the actual Fuzzy." -Carlos
It was Fuzzy! He was just very excited about the $1 bra he planted on set before they started shooting.
That's a wrap for this week, friends! Come back on Monday for one last adventure with Baker before we kick off our next chapter. See you then!
