Like clocks without their springs
Thus ends another Sam and Fuzzy storyline. Next week: sweeping changes, and yet comfortable familiarity! Startling innovation, but reassuring sameness. Don't miss it!
Not a single reader has emailed me about it, but I'm sure at least some of you noticed that I have been using a font to letter the strip since last Wednesday. You may recall a time when I boasted that lettering the strip by hand was faster than by computer, but that statement stopped being true a long time ago. While reading through the entire strip archive, the growing neatness and legibility of the lettering you see are not a result of my writing getting better, but of an increasing amount of time spent touching it up on the computer. Ending this unpleasant, time-consuming process was necessary for my sanity.
The font I'm using was constructed from my writing by extremely dedicated reader Leland Aldridge. It is saving me bundles of time, and I think it looks pretty sharp to boot. Applause and thumbs up, folks.
