The Maimed from Transylvania bring Mania to... Lithuania

Today's gag builds directly off of Friday's strip -- a comic you may or may not remember, depending on the average number of brain-damaging activities you engage in over the course of a weekend. (Pro tip: Try to ep it under four!) Fortunately, this is the internet, where back-linking brings enlightenment... and zero-calorie refreshment!

Sam and Fuzzy Q & A: Robot Clone Edition
Got a question you want answered? Just drop me an email with "Q & A" in the subject line!

"I'm now curious what your feelings on Twilight are, since you're doing
a spoof on it now. Spill it (information, not blood)!" -Raynald

I have never read more that two consecutive words of Twilight. And I'm not gonna.

Consider Edwin a parody more of decades of wanky vampire goth romance than of its most recent iteration specifically. That's probably why Edwin looks more like a normal vampire with actual fangs, unlike the vampires in Twilight who don't have AUGH WHY DO I EVEN KNOW THIS?

"So a correction for the latest round of Q&A. Kraze tried to point out an
inaccuracy with the swords that the Ninja Mafia use, stating that real
ninjas used katana. This is only partly true. Ninjas arose from peasants
and farmers with samurai being the preferred upper-crust warrior class.
This means that a ninja could not afford to have a katana made for him and
instead equipped himself with shorter, straight swords. These swords were
cheaper, easier to conceal, and were used in more of a stabbing motion
rather than the hacking swing of a katana. However, there were a few
instances where a ninja could acquire a katana. If he killed a samurai he
could claim his sword, and I wouldn't be surprised if a ninja performing
services for a samurai was equipped with one, as katanas were sharper and stronger. So, the blades used by your ninja mafia are actually fairly
accurate. Not that you needed an excuse, but now you have one!" -Steven

I'll take it! And thanks to the tons of other folks who also wrote in to defend my completely unintentional accuracy. Apparently there are a lot of sword experts in the audience.

"I don't usually read the news posts, so when I actually did today, I was
wondering, who's Shannon?" -Alex

Shannon is my girlfriend, Alex! And you'd know that, if you started reading those newsposts more regularly. You'd also be practically rolling in fascinating links, hilarious one-liners and hot stock tips. Let this be a lesson to you.

"What's the deal with "Robots - Clones - Robot Clones"? Several characters have used that phrase in some way; you've even put it on a T-shirt. Is this going to lead us to some epic story arc, or do you just like messing with robots?" -

It's all just a throwback to Memory Lapse - one of my favourite Sam and Fuzzy storylines. Give it a read-through whenever you've got a moment, and you will find the answer to your question. And also a fantastic soup recipe. (It's all in the subtext.)

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

Shut up I'm looking for boxes.

Seinfeld was right. When you're moving, your whole world really does become boxes. (Scroll down past "the end" for the whole painfully true box opus.)

We return on Friday, with our next comic and another "exciting" round of Q and A!
