New comic launches today!

Exciting times in internet comic land, friends! Tower of Babel, a brand new comic by Shannon and I, launches today on Shiftylook! Two new pages will go live at 6am, pacific time, with a new page added every Friday, Sunday and Wednesday.

(Comic will be live at 6am pacific time)
Like all the comics on Shiftylook, ours is based on an old Namco game -- in this case, a pretty obscure one. It's about a young lady named Minnesota, who is... uh... reluctantly persuaded to follow in the footsteps of her famous adventurer grandfather. (The protagonist of the original game.) Also, there's a talking rat with a mustache. I think if you're a Sam and Fuzzy fan, you'll probably dig this too -- especially if you're curious to see me do a comic in terrifying, forbidden full colour.

Of course, while all this is happening, Sam and Fuzzy will keep on trucking too! The next comic arrives on Friday. See you then!

The shiftyness is nigh

All right! Tower of Babel, a brand new comic by Shannon and I based on a little known Namco arcade game, will now be launching this Wednesday on Shiftylook! Best of all, the comic will now be running three days a week instead of two, with a new page going up every Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday. I hope you are looking forward to it!

And of course, Wednesday will also bring a new Sam and Fuzzy. So basically, there are a lot of comics in your future. See you then!

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

"Are all the erasers human? If so, why are they allowed to know about the underground?" -Sean

Because their enforcement work takes place primarily on the surface, most of the Erasers are going to be human. (Or at least species that can pass for normal above-ground.)

There are lots of humans who know about the underground! They are just a minority in comparison to the number of humans who don't. Some of them are crooks, some of them are employees of underground organizations, some of them are forcibly quarantined as a result of status quo violations... there are plenty of reasons to be down there. Knowing about the underground isn't a crime. Those who do just need to continue keeping it a secret from the general population.

"My question is: Which one of the characters is Jewish? because, i mean at least one of them has to be Jewish, right? maybe not hasidic or something but at least a secular Jew, right?" -Johnathan

With extremely rare exception, Sam and Fuzzy has rarely explored the cast's religious views (or lack thereof). I'm generally fine with that, but it does kinda create the impression that none of them have religious views at all, which probably isn't true.

Long story short, you're not likely to get a direct answer to your question unless it becomes narratively relevant. Ditto for the casts' ethnic backgrounds or familial heritage, beyond what's obviously from the names and visuals. There's no point committing to definite answers to those questions until the story needs me to. Otherwise I'm just limiting future-me's story options!

"I've gotta know, what is/are blessfist(s)/ing? (How do you punctuate...) I feel like I'm missing out on a very important holiday tradition." -Allison

Well, first you take a huge

until the end of January!

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