New digs

Hi, team! and welcome to the new website. We put a lot of work into this sucker, and I'm really excited to share it with you.

Enormous thanks are in order for Ashton for coding the new archive system backend, and for MichaƂ for converting my initial caveman-esque html-and-tables version of the site into proper CSS. (And as for the actual graphic design, team, you can blame me for that..)

The big new feature is the Table of Contents dropdown, which shows you where the chapter you are currently reading falls in its respective book and series. But there are a bunch of other changes, big and small, designed to give the comic pages more breathing room while still making space to feature other stuff. Hope you dig it!

Emerald City Comic-Con starts this Friday! Hope to see you there, Seattle.

Emerald City Comic-con

Emerald City is upon us this week, friends! If you're going to be at the show, you can find me at the Topatoco booth, which is right smack in the middle of the sky bridge that connects both exhibition halls.

As usual, I'll be hanging out and signing stuff for the duration of the show. And Topatoco will be selling a broad array of cool Sam and Fuzzy stuff, including a limited quantity of both versions of the Omnibus. So if you're looking to pick one up, be sure to swing by!

The launch of the brand new Sam and Fuzzy site is still imminent, but has been put briefly on hold while we sort out a couple of small technical issues. I will keep you all posted! In the meantime, enjoy today's comic, and come back on Wednesday for the next one. Woo!

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!
