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

"What do Nicole, Fuzzy, Alexa, Sin and everyone else doing for Thanksgiving? Does Sam even like Thanksgiving?"-Tom

I've never really thought about it! Sam and Fuzzy takes place in the USA... but of course, I'm from Canada myself, and up here Thanksgiving is in mid-October. So I have a tendency to forget the American version right up until it's actually happening. Maybe that's the reason I've never done a Thanksgiving-themed strip!

I'm sure Sam does his best to throw as traditional a Thanksgiving feast as possible. He seems kind of square that way. I can't imagine it turns out very well if he's the one cooking it, though.

As for Sin, I don't think he has time to celebrate earth holidays. His life is already a non-stop string of self-celebration... there's not much room in there for anything else!

"In strip 1416, it is alluded in Sam's dialogue that he's not alone in the dealing with whatever he deals with business. I guess the question is, are there lots of others whose main source of income is similar to NMS's and are we ever going to see any of these other people?"-Zachary

I think Sam was speaking more generally of anyone whose business or life is firmly entrenched in the so-called "second world". There are certainly plenty of other folks who are aware of the Underground and the various secret creatures, organizations, and species that exist below the physical or metaphorical "surface" of the Sam and Fuzzy-verse. But I don't think any of those people are running an operation that follows the same... uh... "business model" as NMS. (Possibly because it's not a terribly good one!)

"I've a question about Sam's cat: we know it thinks of spatulas, dreams of being catzilla, plays poker, eats people, and so on. We've seen it give birth to a dinosaur, and even move!

Yet, none of this compares with what we've seen on Monday's strip. Aren't cats supposed to always fall on their feet? Given it fell flat on it's face, only one question remains: what the hell is wrong with Butcher"-Bernardo

Well, to be fair, she did land on her front two feet! (Sort of.) They're just a little... stubby, is all.

So... false alarm! Nothing is wrong with Butcher. It turns out she's just an ordinary poker-playing, hand-eating, dinosaur-birthing cat after all.

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

Important information of note: Topatoco has posted their holiday ordering deadlines. If you are looking to score some Sam and Fuzzy swag on or before December 23rd, be sure to check it out... especially if you'd like to use one of the slower, less expensive shipping options!

Other important info of note: Today is the last day of YES Mag and KNOW's 40% off sale! It ends tonight at 9PM PST, So if you're looking to get a cheap subscription to the mags I design and illustrate for... now's your chance!

Alphonso is another "elderly" Sam and Fuzzy character, who has only made a handful of previous appearances. (Which you can find using our character search engine thingy.) But rest assured, even if you haven't read those comics, our current story will tell you everything you need to know about him. Actually, you could argue it already has.

Desert Bus 2011

By now, I'm sure most of you are already familiar with Desert Bus -- where my hometown pals from Loading Ready Run earn cash for Child's Play by 24-marathon-ing through the worst video game ever made.

What you might not know is, if you tune in to the Desert Bus live feed tomorrow at 1pm, I'll be calling in to live auction the original art on the right. This 11 x 14 colour drawing of Yoshi revenge, plus one of our Tanuki Plumber shirts, will go to the highest bidder, and every cent of their bid will go to the charity. Woo!

In other news, we kick off our newest story with what is possibly the most substantial appearance of Butcher the cat in years! Sam's mostly immobile pet was first introduced waaaaaay back in our twelfth comic ever, and was named by Fuzzy shortly thereafter.

Come back on Wednesday for the next part of our story!
