Whew! I'm just putting the finishing touches on one of the bonus goodies that all our Book Club members will be receiving. It's a gigantic desktop image based on Nicole's article in RAGE magazine, with a sneak peek at Nicole's redesign for this volume. If you'd like a copy yourself, just pick up a book before Sept. 22nd. Everyone who does will get their own digital copy, and one lucky buyer will win the 11 x 14 original artwork! Woo!

I am super happy with how the art turned out! But as you'll see, I was a little indecisive about the colouring. Because of that, members will actually be getting two versions... the authentically "metal-mag-esque" original, plus a crazy vibrant pop art variation. Here's a sneak peek:

There must always be a Litchfield

This next chunk of the story features a rare cameo appearance by a character from another strip -- the notorious Litchfield, from Brian Carroll's Instant Classic! What can I say? It's not the sort of thing I usually do, but this story had a particular role to be filled and Litchy was the absolute perfect candidate -- especially considering he and Rikk's past relationship is already well documented. I couldn't resist!

That said, I'm going to treat old Litchfield like I would any brand new, never-before-seen character... so even if you've never read Instant Classic, you'll have no trouble getting introduced and following the rest of the story. But man, if you haven't read it... go read it! It's a great comic.

PS: Thanks for the loner, Bri!

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

Here's the latest round of reader questions! I answered them yesterday, back when I was still 27. Looking at them today, I can't relate to the answers at all. Was I ever really that young and naive? Amazing!

"A question regarding the book club: what about those of us that bought the book at comic con? Are we still in the club even though you don’t have our e-mail addresses?" -Jonathan

Absolutely! If you bought the new book from me at Comic-Con or Anime Evolution, drop me an email and I'll make sure you get the bonus goodies on Sept. 22nd, too. Just remind me who you are, or send a photo of the book. It wasn't that long ago, I'll remember you!

"If I get a book in a few months and exclusive stuff has already been given out, will I still get it or will I miss out?" -JayCee

You'll still get all of the future batches of bonus stuff, but yes, you would miss out on any of the ones that have already been given out.

But don't worry... there's still lots of time to get in on the first batch! If you are keen on the wallpaper pack (and a chance to win the Nicole art), just make sure you place your order by Sept. 22nd. Marketing!

"I notice that the webcomic's image files have their respective chronological eight-digit-number as names. So, what will you do after the 99999999th comic? Are only the following files going to be named differently, or will you keep the entirety of files uniform and rename the previous ones too?(Just asking because the second option would seriously mess up my bookmarks)." -Joe

Joe, at my current rate of production, I won't reach comic #99999999 until 651,017 years from now. In other words, you are absolutely right to start worrying now.

"What's happened to Fuzzy's time traveling hat? " -Jeremiah

Happened? Whatever it is, it isn't going to happen for another 24 hours.

"What's your favorite Toto song?" -Jeremiah

Man, that is a tough question. It is so hard to pick between that one and the other one.

Just kidding! Toto sucks. That's actually why Marten and I broke up.

That's a wrap for this week! Our story continues on Monday. See you then!
