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

"So. . . Is Detective Morris really Hazel Kim? Or at least a relative of hers?" -Corina

I like this theory! It's fun. And I certainly don't blame you for thinking that. They do have kind of similarly-shaped heads! But they are definitely different people. Actually, here's a little piece of trivia for you... that's a young Morris in the top left corner of this comic. Surprise!

Relatives? Also a fun theory! Alas no, not in this case. But that said, Detective Morris is related to former-main-cast-member Getrude Dupont. She's her aunt! So it's still a small world (after all.)

"In this comic, Sin implies that "Fuzzy" was a pseudonym for Fuzzy/Eric in the past. So when Hazel "first met" Fuzzy in the dumpster she chose to call him Fuzzy because it was convenient? Does this retcon your previous retcon of how Sin knew Fuzzy's name?" -Tom

Pretty much!

I still think Hazel called our tiny protaganist "Fuzzy" in the alley primarily as a play off of what he said, without even realizing he would adopt it as his permanent new name. I just added the wrinkle that now, as we learned in last Monday's comic, "Fuzzy" was also one of many pseudonyms Hazel used for Fuzzy/Eric when they used to work together.

And yes... as you and many others guessed, I worked in this piece of minute trivia to address my most famous and frequently discussed super-embarassing continuity error! Why does Mr. Sin call Fuzzy "Fuzzy" and not Eric when they are first reunited, and why is "Fuzzy" (presumably) the name on the Blamco Toys licensing agreement? Now you know! Now let us never speak of it again.

PS: Never actually sign a contract with a pseudonym. It's probably not a good move.

"Was it Hazel on the blurry background on the 4th panel of this
And - it doesn't hurt to ask - were those a shark and a wolf on the previous panel?" -Carlos

That is indeed Hazel -- and in the previous panel, Rexford and several other members of the committee. But their "appearance" was strictly symbolic, my friend! None of them were actually present, riding in the neighbouring teacups. It was just an excuse to use an interesting visual device.

All right! That's another week in the can. Come back on Monday for our next comic!

I'm glad so many of our Book Club keeners are excited about the new desktop! Poor old sad dinosaur pirate seemed like the kind of thing that would be appreciated by the Sam and Fuzzy hardcore. (Maybe now he will cheer up a little.)

A few folks have asked whether purchasing the Book 2-pack, rather than just Volume 2 on it's own, will still qualify them for the Book Club. The answer... is yes. Aggressively yes. By all means, please buy both books. Buy all the books. I support you in your decisions.

We return on Friday for a new comic and a new round of Q and A! Got a question you're dying to have answered? Just pop it in an email with "Q and A" in the subject line.

A new year of Book Club bonuses begins on September 30th!

For those of you who are new around here, allow me to fill you in! Last year, we created a little book club for all the folks who bought a copy of our first book. Every couple of months, we sent them a new free bonus pack of digital comics and other goodies. Well, we have a new book out this year, so we're doing it again!

The first Book Club Bonus Pack for Sam and Fuzzy Are Very Famous will be sent out on September 30th! Everyone who has bought a copy online on or before September 29th will receive it automatically. (If you bought it at a convention, just drop me an email and I will help you out!)

Our first bonus pack features a pair of new desktop backgrounds in a variety of resolutions. One is based on the cover of the book. And the other -- which is the one I know a lot of you will be really excited about -- is a painstaking recreation of Fuzzy's infamous sad pirate dinosaur painting. (I may eventually sell a print of this sucker, if anyone is interested... but for now, Book Club members can enjoy the free desktop!)

I'll also be including a bundle of never-before-seen early Sam and Fuzzy comics. Like, pre-webcomic early. This bundle is particularly relevant because it contains the first few pages of an abandoned story about... Fuzzy becoming a sitcom star! It was one of the last comics I drew before rebooting the series as the webcomic you know today.

Anyhow, that's the bundle! It mails out September 30th. Enjoy, book owners!
