I started playing the Miles Edgeworth game on the plane-ride to Orlando. I'm a big fan of the Ace Attorney series, and in general, I've been enjoying this latest iteration. Edgeworth is a great character, and it's a lot of fun to see him thrust into the spotlight.

But boy, was I surprised to find out that there were no actual trials in the game! Mechanically, there is still just as much of the traditional testifying, cross-examining and objecting to be had, but it's all done outside the courtroom, as part of a pre-trial investigation.

It just seems like a bit of a missed opportunity, especially considering that all the previous games have had you take the role of a defence attorney. Now here you are, playing as video gaming's most famous cravat-wearing prosecutor, and you never actually get to... you know... prosecute anyone? In the words of Phoenix Wright... "step-ladder!"

Er, or "objection." Whichever!

Who is this person? What is going on? If you find yourself asking these questions, I suggest you acquaint (or re-aquaint) yourself with this storyline!

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

"I'm a young artist and a long time reader. I admire how your comics have developed and I'm curious about it's developed for you. Maybe you always wanted to be a cartoonist, but were you always passionate about it? Where does the work ethic come from? " -Sage

I honestly couldn't tell you where the work ethic comes from, Sage. But I was producing ridiculous quantities of comics for years, long before I ever put anything online. I'm talking literal thousands of pages of (borderline unreadable) cartoons, even when I could only convince a handful of unfortunate friends and family members to read them.

Of course, that was before the internet... before there was any real way or expectation that a child or teen cartoonist could reach a larger audience at all. You just had to draw comics for the love of drawing comics. And that's exactly what I did, because I guess I just really flippin' love drawing comics!

"So... is anybody going to mention Aaron's robot hand to Dev?" -Riley

I'm not sure! Maybe she already knows. After all, Aaron did use the screwdriver to help verify the extra Fuzzy's robot-cloniness. Uh, somehow.

"Any progress on those mugs you mentioned a while back? I'm looking forward to buying one." -Anket

Ah, yes... our vanishing ninja mug! Sadly, we've had a bit of trouble tracking down a manufacturer that can produce the mugs with the disappearing/reappearing design effect at the quality and quantity we want. But we're working on it!

Failing that, though... how many of you would be interested in purchasing a regular, design-always-showing mug with the same wrap-around graphic? Let me know what you think!

"So how come Sam wasn't aware that X and Y were Fuzzy's new body guards? Doesn't he check his staffs timesheets or look over the accounts? (Assuming Fuzzy is paying for them.) Surely they are too loyal to go freelance!" -J

Fuzzy probably just approached them told them that Sam had approved their reassignment. I imagine appropriate quantities of persuasive ability and raw stupidity were present on either side of that conversation equation.

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

Orlandoes what Canadon't

I'm back! And after a few days of meticulous research, I can confirm that Orlando does indeed still have theme parks in it. No need to thank me!

It feels good to be back in the homeland. But I won't be home for long! Can you believe that Emerald City Comic-Con is only a couple weeks away? I hope you can, because believing in things is important. Trust me, I know. They sang at least five different songs about it at Disney World, and if you can't trust singing dudes in animal suits, who can you trust?
