Comics in Transit
I'm busy prepping for this weekend's Rose City Comic-Con! But I still have a little extra something fun to share with you all.
As Patreon Art Blog backers will already know, Cloudscape invited me to draw a comic for the City of Vancouver's Comics in Transit program! Basically, they're putting giant comics in bus stops around the city for the next few weeks. Here is mine, which -- if you're local -- you can go see for yourself on the Northeast corner of Fraser and 28th!
It was pretty fun to draw a comic that I knew would be printed so HUGE! And I'm pretty happy with how this one turned out... so much so that I was actually thinking of making some posters (at a somewhat less enormous size) to sell online. Would anyone want one? Let me know!
Sam and Fuzzy Q & A: Mostly-Ignoring-Today's-Shocker Edition
Got a question you want answered? Just drop me an email with "Q & A" in the subject line!
"There've been a lot of references to the robot faction of the Committee lately. Are we going to learn more about them in the future?" -Amy
Yes! They will be prominently featured in an upcoming story. But you can also learn a whole bunch about them right now in the Underground RPG gamebook's extensive guidebook to the Sam and Fuzzy universe! There's a ton of info about all the Committee factions and species in there.
"In this comic Devahi can't turn off the Buddy Bear army because the voice identification isn't recognized. But Jes Starr is right behind her. Does her shapeshifting allow her perfect vocal mimicry as well?" -Peter
As you've now seen, yes she can! I figured some people would see that coming, but that's OK. If it feels plausible enough to guess, then it's probably plausible enough to not feel like a cop-out. Ha!
"I thought Sin’s head… skull… body-helmet cracked when Sam hit him with that fire extinguisher? I’m not seeing that crack anymore." -Jake
Sin's robot head has a horizontal seam there -- the top of his head is a sealed "door" that he can open to get in and out. Sam's attack slightly dislodged the door, so I tried to communicate that by making the seam slightly visible up close or from certain angles. I was maybe more subtle about where I did or didn't depict it than I should have been, but I only wanted it to look a little damaged, not trashed.
But still, uh... a little damaged was enough for Brain's purposes, I guess. Yikes.
Come back on Monday for our next comic!

As usual, it take all the exclusive art and behind-the-scenes stuff that was posted on the blog over the last month and combines it into one keepsake PDF. Thanks for your support!
We return on Friday for our next comic and a new round of Q and A! If you have a question you'd like answered, just pop it in an email with Q and A in the subject line. I can't answer 'em all, but I do my best!
