Ebook Sale!

Hey, team: we've got an ebook sale running over in our gumroad store!

From today 'til May 4th, you can nab any and/or all of our digital PDF books for 30% off by using the offer code springsale at checkout. This includes both my ebook exclusives -- like my two Headcanon collections of pin-up artwork -- as well as the digital versions of the Underground RPG gamebook and my regular graphic novels.

Everything must go! Except... except it's digital, so there's no actual stock, so I guess it's more like... everything must be digitally replicated over the internet!

We return on Friday with a new comic and a new round of Q and A! If you've got a question you'd like me to answer, just pop it into an email with Q and A in the subject line. See you then!

Where you need to go

Good old Carlyle: sage advice-granting cab driver, low on appearances and high in impact. If you're a newer reader and are unfamiliar with him, there's not much to catch up on! Here's a cheat list of the handful of past strips in which he appeared or was mentioned.

Thanks to everyone who came out to see me at this weekend's talk at Bolen Books! That was a lot of fun. (And a great excuse to chat with the talented and extremely pleasant trio of Tony Cliff, Renee Nault, and Faith Erin Hicks.)

Our next comic arrives on Wednesday. See you then, team!

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

"So is there a particular time period S&F takes place in, other than 'now-ish'? Because Candice's flashback smartphone threw me a loop." - Nicholas

In the 14 years (!) that I've been drawing the comic, just over six years have passed in-universe in the comic. So, depending on which side of those 14 years you count from, the Classic Era could take place as early as 2002 or as late as 2010!

I generally avoid mentioning specific years in the comic, but personally, I tend to lean more towards the "rolling present" interpretation than the one that slowly turns the comic into a period piece. So I guess that's where the smart phone comes from!

"Why didn't Hart possess Hazel at Sam's apartment or the Radio Station?" -Tripp

I think it was just strategic! Sticking with the ninjas was the better long-term goal. And short term, as long as he was possessing the body of one of them, the other two ninjas would be on "his side" in a combat situation. If he had switched into Hazel's body, he wouldn't have any peons to come to his aid, and might even end up having to fight them.

"Was wondering if Brian's cat like form is a personal choice of his or if that's just the way he is? Like can members of Hart and Brian's species pick their shape?" -Sean

That's a good question! I can't say now, but we'll find out a lot more about Brain and his kind in future chapters.

OK, team! I gotta go get ready to head out to Victoria for the Camosun Comics festival and keynote talk! If you're going to be in Victoria yourself this weekend, you should swing on by... both events are free to attend!
