Today's comic is double-sized, because I like finishing chapters on Fridays. Enjoy!
In other news, it's time to announce our next Book Club bonus pack! For those who don't know, anyone who picks up a copy of our latest book, Sam and Fuzzy Are Very Famous, also gets free digital goodies emailed to them throughout the year. Our next bundle sends out in less than two weeks, and features new desktops and classic never-before-seen Sam and Fuzzy comics. You can get a better look at it all by clicking here.
If you've bought a book, this stuff will be sent out to you on March 1st for the low price of zero dollars! And if you haven't picked up a book yet, do so on or before February 29th and this extra swag can be yours too!
This time around, members will also be voting on the subject matter of one of our next bonus pack desktops! Members, if you have an idea or concept for a desktop that you'd really like to see... email them to me now! I'll pick my ten favourite ideas, and include them in a poll that will be sent out with the bonus pack... and whichever idea gets the most votes will be used for a new desktop in the next pack!
Speaking of books... I got a lot of book-related questions this week! So let's... uh... book it up.
Sam and Fuzzy Q & A: Book Book Book Edition
Got a question you want answered? Just drop me an email with "Q & A" in the subject line!
"I'm a big fan of Sam and Fuzzy and own both books. I lent them to my brother when he was flying to another state. He enjoyed them as well. However, now whenever I see him he asks when the next comes out. Any idea when we can expect the third book to hit shelves? Speaking of shelves, do you have any plans to ever have your books carried in more mainstream shops, such as Barnes and Noble? " -Max
Volume 3 is tentatively scheduled for a fall release this year, but since we're still in the midst of the storylines that will be collected in it, I can't say with absolute certainty. It depends on how much longer it takes me to actually finish drawing it all!
"I was going through the archives, and some of your old newsposts (around the first half of the Noosehead saga) talk about the first Sam and Fuzzy book, and links where they can be bought, but the links are dead. Are those books still available? If not, is there any chance you may do a reprinting of those books at some point? " -Ben
Once upon a time, there were two Sam and Fuzzy minibooks, similar to the Skull Panda mini we have now. Alas, aside from a tiny, tiny handful of copies I have horded for special occasions, they are all long gone.
I resisted the urge to reprint them because I'd rather see that material collected in larger, more definitive books. And that is still the hope... although I'm increasingly leaning towards just putting everything pre-Fix Your Problem into one gigantic tome. It is a complicated and expensive project, though, which is why it hasn't materialized yet!
"I'm sure I saw a comic waaaay back showing three Ninja
Mafioso with possessed eyes. I can't find it again, but I think it may
have been around where we see DJ positive get murdered. The point is,
Fridge could only posses one person at a time (otherwise the showdown
with Candice would have played out different), so was there more than
one Demon, and if so where did they go?" -Andrew
I think the comic you are remembering is probably this one, when McMillan fought the three ninjas who had broken into Sam's apartment and become vessels for Fridge!
This is probably the least interesting answer possible, but that particular image of the three possessed ninjas was part of a flashback montage and was meant to be more representative than literal. So nope, there were no other demons involved! Fridge couldn't possess more than one body at a time, but he could hop between them pretty quickly... he probably flung them at McMillan one at a time in rapid succession.
