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

"In light of recent comics ending, like the good doctor McNinja, how do you stay motivated to create these extensive and elaborate stories?" -Alex

Mainly, I'm motivated by the fact that this one still isn't done yet! Ha! I have been slugging away at the same story that started waaaaay back in Sam and Fuzzy Fix Your Problem. We're on what will eventually be the sixth and final book in that story now, which is exciting, but there's still quite a ways to go. (It's a long one!)

Otherwise, well... telling stories is my favourite thing to do in comics! It's why I drifted away from gag strips all those many, many years ago. I think, though, that once this particular story is finally complete, I will probably tackle a smaller tale for my follow-up. They can't all be enormous ten-year-long epics.

"On the subject of Mr. Sin:
He's a creature from somewhere off this planet; He's extremely knowledgeable of advanced scientific technologies; he's as deviant as they come: Does this mean that he's a scientist of a species that's generally despicable, a despicable member of a species that is so advanced even it's con artists know advanced science, or does he happen to be a money-grubbing scientist of a different species?" -Alexander

I think Mr. Sin's technical know-how, although very impressive by Earth standards, was probably not particularly out-of-the-ordinary back home.  The way Sin talks and acts, to me, betrays like a man... er, space gopher... with an inferiority complex and a desire to be a big fish in a small pond.

"What cons are you going to be at this year?" -Mike

Glad you asked! I'll post them up top as they draw closer, but:

Emerald City (Seattle)
Calgary Expo
TCAF (Toronto)
VanCAF (Vancouver)
Anime Expo (Los Angeles)
Gen Con (Indianapolis)
Fan Expo (Toronto)
Rose City (Portland)
Edmonton Expo

That's a lot of dang shows, isn't it? Ha!

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

We return on Friday with the next part of our story, and also a new round of reader Q and A! As always, if you've got a question you'd like me to answer, just pop it in an email with "Q and A" in the subject line.

Meanwhile, if you enjoy some random bonus marker art, I've been posting a few marker drawings I've made of various critters from my friends and I's current D&D campaign. You can see 'em over on my tumblr! (Or on my twitter, if you like your drawings interspersed with random one-liners.)

February Patreon Rewards are Up!

Ah, Monday the 13th. Whenever you arrive, I always think of Garfield. (Thanks, brain, for your uncanny ability to remember totally irrelevant information from my childhood, but not where I keep the spare USB chargers.)

In other news... the Sam and Fuzzy Patreon has been updated with this month's backer rewards. All backers have until Wendesday to vote for this month's bonus fan art and pin-up pieces! There's also a brand new issue of Sam and Fuzzy Extra for Extra-level backers, and a big batch of new marker illustrations and kinda saucy Valentines-y Dev and Sam flashback pin-up for Art Vault-level backers. That's a lot of dang stuff! Enjoy, and thanks for all your support.
