Sam and Fuzzy Q & A: No Questions About Carlyle Until Next Week Edition
Got a question you want answered? Just drop me an email with "Q & A" in the subject line!
"At the moment, there are 685.5 book pages of content (I counted) released for Race to the Bottom, and there's still a ways to go before the conclusion, which could easily push it to over 800 or even 900 pages. At the moment, the longest Sam&Fuzzy book in print is the Omnibus collection of Under the Influence and Ruined Everything, with a total of 808 pages. Is there a chance that Race to the Bottom could need to be split into two books due to length?" -Dawson
I don't think so! The longest book so far though is actually the Noosehead Omnibus.. it's 848 pages! So it'd take over a year of additional S&F comics to get to that level. If I did need to split it though, I would. I'd probably make a little companion art book, and put some of the extra side stories -- like this Conscience Cat one -- in it to get the count down.
That said... I'm not sure what you included in your count, but quite a few of the comics I've posted between Race to the Bottom's chapters are actually being collected in the VOTE DOG book I'm kickstarting right now, rather than the next Sam and Fuzzy book. All the President Dog stuff, the Baker the Corgi comics, the more recent Butcher or Buddy one offs... if it's pet related and it's not in a book yet, it's going in VOTE DOG.
That will help keep S&F Vol. 6's length under control! And it also lets me make a rad book of animal comics that has almost no overlap with the S&F books. (So if you like those comics, be sure to check out the kickstarter... because that's where they are all going!)
"I just finished reading through the archive (got to have everything fresh in my mind for the ending) and I wondered, how precisely do you remember it all?
I spend way more time than the average person thinking about Sam and Fuzzy! An individual page that takes you a few seconds to read takes me hours to make, after all, so it burns in there pretty good. That said, I forget stuff all the time! But when I do, I can just look it up. Ha!
