Sam and Fuzzy Q & A: Battlevoid Edition
"What happened to Invader Zim 49? Wasn't it supposed to come out on Wednesday?" -Dave
Ooh... it was delayed! I actually didn't realize they never announced the delay, until the old release date arrived and folks started asking me where it was. But I've checked with the publisher, and they told me the new release date is February 19th!
For those who don't know, issue 49 of Invader Zim is the final chapter in a big four part story that I wrote called "Battle Void"! It's actually been quite a while now since I finished the script, so I'm really looking forward to seeing the big finale land in readers' hands. This was my favourite thing that I've written for Zim so far, and I'm glad to hear that folks have been enjoying it!
(And for those who enjoy my Zim stuff, I'm happy to report that you can look forward to more in the future!)
"What will become of Sam and Fuzzy Six Years Earlier and Sam and Fuzzy Race to the Bottom? Personally, I'm a big fan of dead trees." -Justin
Dead tree editions will be Kickstarting soon! It'll be a two book "Race to the Bottom" set that collects the Six Years Earlier mini-volume and all of the giant Race to the Bottom volume. (The first book collects Six Years Earlier, Social Hacking, Crossed Wires, and Unfixable; the second book contains Deep Down, Rock Bottom, Brain Damage, Fix Your Problem, and the various side stories that ran between chapters.)
I am hoping to have the Kickstarter ready to launch in mid February! I actually thought I might have it running by now, but it is taking a little more time that expected to prep. (Since it's a two book set, with both hardcover and softcover versions, there's a lot of front and back cover art to draw!)
"If Jess ran into her parents outside the slug homeland would she even recognize them??" -Alan
Probably not. And they might not recognize her, either! They've seen her in her human form before, but they haven't seen a lot of humans in general, so we probably all kinda look the same to them.
That's a wrap for this week, team. See you on Monday with our next comic!
