Dog Vine

I was just realizing today that I've never mentioned this here before, but... did you know I'm on Vine? Because I am on Vine! I use Vine pretty much exclusively to share videos of my award-winning dogs. (I gave them the awards.) But I guess in theory I might post something comics-related there someday, maybe? Well, probably not. But they ARE cute dogs.

We return on Friday, with a new comic and a new round of reader Q and A! As always, if you have a question you'd like me to answer, just pop it in an email with "Q and A" in the subject line!

Sam and Fuzzy Extra and Holiday Deadlines!

Hi friends! Two quick notes for you today.

Note the first: tomorrow the last day Americans can order Sam and Fuzzy swag by Standard mail and recieve it in time for Christmas. After that, y'all will have to splurge for a quicker shipping method to get it in time! (Meanwhile, Wendesday is the Priority Mail deadline for international buyers!)

Note the second: a brand new issue of Sam and Fuzzy Extra is now available to everyone backing the Sam and Fuzzy Patreon at the $5 "Art Blog" level! If you're a backer, you can find it -- and all the previous issues -- in my Patreon activity feed. (Each issue collects a month of art blog posts... sketches, behind-the-scenes stuff, and exclusive drawings and illustrations!)

All right! Come back on Wednesday for more flashback antics. See you then!

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

"So did Fuzzy not sign his name Eric in this comic, or did everyone just play along with the fact that it was under a different name?" -Leann

This was, I'm sorry to say, the one major continuity flub in Sam and Fuzzy history!

When I came up with the idea that pre-amnesia Fuzzy had a different name (Eric), I didn't think about how it would contradict that story! Clearly, that contract has to be signed "Fuzzy", or else everyone reading it would have reacted very differently when they saw it. But since it was signed by pre-amnesia Fuzzy, it should have said Eric!

To fix the flub, I introduced this relatively mild retcon, where Mr. Sin reveals that Hazel and Fuzzy used pseudonyms when they worked for him on the original Buddy Bear project (and on other sketchy endeavours). "Fuzzy" was the alias that Eric used on that job, and possibly some other ones as well.

"Um... didn't you say your new pinup thing would be out 'this fall'?" -Alex

I did, I did! I'm sorry. I keep getting hijacked by other stuff! The second pinup ebook is made entirely of new material, so it wound up being a lot more work than the first one. But it's almost done. Really!

If you're impatient, I've posted a bunch of preview pictures (as well as some cut/alt ones from the first book) in the Secret Art Vault, for folks backing the Patreon at the art vault level.

"Is Carlyle secretly Sam from the future?" -Camurrant

No, but that was a popular fan theory at the time.The idea is somewhat... uh... explored... in an exclusive bonus comic Rikk Estoban drew for the Sam and Fuzzy Omnibus! (Which you can by physically here or digitally here.)

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