Bonus Pack 4
It has arrived! Our new Book Club bonus pack -- which includes a pair of new desktops and a never-before-seen early comic featuring a prototypical take on the nefarious Fridge character -- will be emailed out later today. If you placed an online order for our first book at any point in the history of mankind, you'll should receive the whole shebang automatically and free of charge. Thanks for your support!
(And if you wanted in on the new goodies and missed the ordering cut-off, don't panic... just pick up a copy of Fix Your Problem sometime in the next couple of days and drop me an email, and I will hook you up.)
Look at this thing! My pal J.J. -- he of the Canadian web editorial cartoon institution Filibuster -- put together an epic splash pin-up featuring pretty much every major character from Fix Your Problem. And I didn't even ask him to do it! That's friendship, man.
You can see the whole thing (and I recommend you do) by clicking the image below!
In other news... our ultimate Fix Your Problem Book Club Bonus Pack mails out on Wednesday! If you would like to nab this last set of rare comics and exclusive desktop backgrounds, just pick up a copy of our first book by Wednesday! Everyone who has got a book will receive this swag automatically later this week, free of charge. Woo!
Sam and Fuzzy Q & A: Eric Edition
Got a question you want answered? Just drop me an email with "Q & A" in the subject line!
"Is that the 'Overkill is just one of my many modes' and a werewolf in the Monday/Wednesday strips?" -Tom
Pretty much! That is a werewolf, and a similar (albeit not the exact same) robot. There are a lot of groups (and species) from throughout Sam and Fuzzy history represented on the Committee. And a few of the members themselves have appeared (or at least been mentioned by name) before.
"Counting the votes in comic 1433, I saw RIGHT-LEFT-RIGHT-LEFT-RIGHT-LEFT-LEFT-LEFT. How was it a tie?" -Charles
It's a montage, my friend! That's just how eight of the members voted. The committee has many others! In fact, after having to draw them all so many times over the last two weeks... I might even say too many.
"Even though he fell to his death in the 'Showdown' storyline, Mr. Blank returned for a cameo in 'The Big Cheat'. Any chance we might see other departed characters (e.g., Mr. Black, Candice, or 17th-century chemist Robert Boyle) show up? " -Harold
Probably! And in one case, definitely. But not for quite awhile. (And don't worry... as in Mr. Blank's cameo, they won't be magically springing back to life or anything.)
In the nearer future, some other equally familiar but significantly less dead faces will also be turning up. Can you guess who? You might be able to, if you have been paying attention!
"Did you know that Brandon Sanderson (author of the Mistborn trilogy and the man hand-picked to finish the last Wheel of Time books, among other things) is apparently a fan of yours? (Considering I'm a big fan of both you and him, I find that really cool.)" -Matt
I did! Brandon is super nice guy, and a pretty serious webcomic fan to boot. He was reading way back in the early days of Sam and Fuzzy. I actually have a signed copy of his very first book, Elantris, that he kindly sent me when it was released back in 2005. (And I was finally able to return the favour at last year's Comic-con, when we were launching Fix Your Problem!)
That's a wrap for this week. Come back on Monday to find out what the heck is going on!
