Sam and Fuzzy Q & A:  No References Edition
Got a question you want answered? Just drop me an email with "Q & A" in the subject line!


"Were these chair people chair people by chance live in ceaseless screaming agony after being created by necromancers?" -Tom


Tom is referring to this Exterminatus Now comic (which I will warn you is a little gory)! It was not an intentional reference, no. But I actually do know the dude who made that comic! He often had a booth near us at Calgary Expo.


"[In comic #2808] - was switching from Banjo to Kazoo(ie) an intentional reference or not?" -James


This was not an intentional reference, either... but it really feels like it should be, doesn't it? Maybe it was subconcious?


"Are you going to be doing any conventions at all this year?" -Dave


Er... Maybe? So far, 5 of the 9 cons I was going to attend this year have been cancelled. (Although Emerald City has theoretically been rescheduled in August, rather than outright cancelled... we'll see if that sticks!)


San Diego Comic-Con in late July is my first scheduled convention that is currently still on the books. After that, I have (in theory) Gen Con, the rescheduled Emerald City, Fan Expo Toronto, and Edmonton Expo. But I think it's too early to tell whether any of those events will need to be cancelled, too! Everyone is waiting to see how things are looking by the summer.


I like cons, and they're a huge part of how I make a living, but we all gotta do whatever's in the best interests of everyone's health. (I also have the added layer of being a Canadian... so even after events stop getting cancelled and travel bans lift, I can't personally go to any American shows until the insurance companies are sufficiently confident enough to start selling temporary traveller's health insurance again.)


Just as a side note: extra special thanks to all the folks who have been helping to support me online while I do my best to slog through this cancelled convention season. It's a huge help!


That's all for this week, team. See you on Monday!

Banjo Threeie

 

You gotta watch out for those medium-sized lizard men in particular. (Well, metaphorically watch out.)

 

We return on Friday with our next comic, plus a new round of Q and A! As always, if you've got a question you'd like me to answer -- about our comic, past comics, comics in general, Zim stuff, Patreon stuff, or whatever else -- just pop it in an email with "Q and A" in the subject line.

Leap Year


A little earlier this year, I started a fun little side project on my Patreon, drawing a series of "platformer" video game characters for "leap year". (Because they all jump a lot! Get it? Get it?) 


If you haven't seen any of 'em yet, I've started sharing some of the resulting drawings on my twitter and instagram, too! (And of course, Patreon backers can see a bunch more of 'em, and vote for future inclusions in the series.)


This is a fun and (almost kind of therapeutic) little side project for me. I've been playing platformers all my life -- they're probably my favourite genre of video game -- so I just have a lot of familiarity with the many, many characters who have starred in them over the years, famous and obscure, great and terrible.


We return on Wednesday with our next comic. See you then, team!
