Comics are happening

Guys, guys, A Lesson is Learned but the Damage is Irreversible has returned from the dead, ready to delight once more! It was, and still is, one of my favourite webcomics, so I'm pretty thrilled to see Dave and Dale back in action.

And speaking of webcomics, have you seen this relatively new one, Rachel and Penny? It's a super fun and beautifully drawn story about a rock star and her manager. Go check it out!

And of course, if you still have a moment after all this other comic oggling, be sure to congratulate Skull Panda on his new career.

Holiday Deadline Alert: Tomorrow (Tuesday the 11th) is the last day to order Sam and Fuzzy swag by USPS First Class/Standard or International Express and be sure to receive it by the 24th! After that, pre-Christmas delivery for international buyers can't be guaranteed by any method, and American customers will have to resort to speedier shipping methods. Be AWARE!

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

"Do you ever accidentally call Edwin that other fictional vampire name?" -Rory

What, you mean Dracula? Yes, constantly!

"You've mentioned before that you plan more in "broad strokes" than in minute detail, so my question is this: How often do you go back and re-read your previous chapters to pick up on foreshadowing you didn't even know you made?" -Matt

Honestly, almost never! Any foreshadowing you encounter is probably either intentional or, in a couple of cases, accidental. I don't generally go back to find nuggets that I can retcon into foreshadowing, if you know what I mean. That can come across as a little forced.

Foreshadowing works best when you don't overdo it and stick to the big stuff. And the big stuff is the stuff that's planned! (Perhaps in strokes that are a liiiittle less broad and more meticulous than I give myself credit for.)

Usually when I'm skimming through old comics, it's to remind myself of more mundane things, like what a particular character's name was or what side of a door the knob was on. I don't generally going digging to check plot elements, because as massive and convoluted as my plot mayb be, it's essentially hyper-internalized at this point. (And if you spent as much time thinking about it as I have to, you'd probably have it hyper-internalized too!)

"Hello Sam, this may be the most stupid question you have ever been asked but, could you try to get more exposure to your comic as I feel that not enough people know about it lol. Pretty much all I wanted to say, keep up the great work!" -Lucas

Ha! I'll do my best, Lucas. Of course, I'm always encourage more people to check out Sam and Fuzzy... but ultimately, I'm just a lone artist and only have the time and cash to do a fairly limited amount of self-promotion.

Instead, I have relied pretty heavily on my readers and my fellow cartoonists to help spread the word and encourage new folks to give the comic a try -- and fortunately, that has gone pretty well so far! I'm lucky to have the audience I've got, and the privilege of making a solid living as a cartoonist. But a bigger audience and a better living is certainly something I'll keep striving for!

Anyhow, speaking of making comics for a living... I'll be back on Monday with another new one! See you then, team.
