Sam and Fuzzy Q & A: Patron Edition
Got a question you want answered? Just drop me an email with "Q & A" in the subject line!
"I just have to know... how long have you been planning this comic? I had to go back nearly a year to find a clear shot of that wall to see that, in fact, that space has always been empty." -Jeroen
Um... let's just say that, in every shot of Sam's Mafia HQ office, that display case has exactly what it should or should not have had in it at that time. People who go digging might be able to figure out roughly how long that heirloom has been missing and maybe even form some theories about what it was. But you can just keep reading and find out that way!
"I was doing some archive binging and noticed that in this comic, the psychological analysis report of how Keller will respond to the threat of hijacking is signed by Hazel Kim. This makes me wonder... was the analysis done by Brain? It really looks like Brain might be the... brains of this outfit. ...I'm sorry! That joke hurt my head too but it had to be done." -Jake
Yes! This is the information Sam was seen buying from Hazel in an earlier comic. Sam needed to know what alternate routes Keller would use and how he'd react to the threat of a hijacking, and Brain was able to get this information... uh... direct from the source.
"How does Sin have a [committee member] code - was he around many years ago at the founding of the committee, or did he inherit one as well? From who?" -Keith
There are a set number of seats on the committee -- 31 -- and a set number of access codes to go with them. They're all assigned to specific companies, organizations or individuals, and are passed on by a tradition appropriately specific to that. (For example, the Catopian seat is held by a monarch, the Vampire seat is held by a representative selected by the Vampiric council, the Graves seat is held by the current primary stakeholder in a private business empire.)
The committee is hundreds of years old -- and while Sin could be too, for all you know, he definitely wasn't a committee member until sometime in the last decade or two. Mr. Sin inherited his seat and code from a previous member. Who and how may be a fun story for later!
We return on Monday! And not just with a new comic. I'm pretty sure we'll also be launching the brand new Sam and Fuzzy website, too. Woohoo!
