I wonder which ninja that could have been? I guess we'll never know.

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

"When the original Ninja Emperor got allegedly murdered by Sam, did anyone on the Committee feel bad? Like, was the Emperor super best friends with Cowboy council guy, or was he despised by Vampires for hogging the emo and blending-in-the-shadow scene. Was Sam also on the run from the cowboy mafia, vampire mafia, etc while running from the Ninja Mafia?" -Tom

I don't think the Ninja Emperor was particular well-liked by the rest of the Committee. In particular, Paxton -- aka the cowboy hat guy -- was someone he spent a significant amount of time feuding with over the band of Wazu-la.

The original, pre-Fridge-possession emperor hasn't been discussed too widely in the comic. We know that Mr. Black thought he was an unqualified aristocratic buffoon, and we know that he had a serious love of fine things and trinkets. The Underground RPG (book / ebook), which takes place when he's still alive, has a bit more info about him -- he's described as a foppish playboy more interested in wealth and finery than the day-to-day operations of the Mafia. 

Long story short, the old Ninja emp was a regal dude who didn't care much about policy and was activelycombative with other Committee members. I suspect no one was particularly sad to see him go.

"Why do you make these massive omnibuses instead of chapter-by-chapter comic books? You could crowbar someone over the head with one of these! Mmmm… Crowbars." -Jake

Individual comic issues, at least physically printed ones, never felt like they'd make much sense for me because the vast majority of my physical comics are sold online and sent to people by mail order. The average Sam and Fuzzy graphic novel breaks down into 20-30 regular sized comic books, and it's a lot more expensive to mail someone 30 individual smaller books than one large one.

I do sometimes wonder, though, if I should try breaking the books up into individual issues to sell them in digital comics marketplaces, like Comixology!

"Maybe I missed it, but seeing some of the Committee members in a nonstandard gathering makes me realize that I have no idea what the official meeting schedule is. Is it by request? Is it every Tuesday? Is it at the new moon, but only during hockey season? I don't know why it matters, but I need an answer!" -Simon

Let's invent canon RIGHT NOW! I think they meet twice a month, unless something urgent comes up. Sound good? Yeah... yeah! That must be it!

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

Bday Bonanza

Thanks, everyone, for all the kind anniversary wishes! Lots of folks have been taking advantage of the free Vol. 1 ebook / cheap ebook bundle special we're doing, which is awesome. I mistakenly said it would last until "April 6th"... I of course actually meant June 6th, which I'm sure most of you assumed. That's next Monday, so have at it!

In other news, let's all look at this beautiful animated promo my pal Tyson Hesse made for the new 2D Sonic game, Sonic Mania! Tyson's take on Sonic is basically my favourite version of the character... he has so much personality!

We return on Friday with a new comic and a new round of 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!

Sam and Fuzzy Turns 15

It's true, friends... it's the 15th anniversary of the launch of Sam and Fuzzy!

(Well, technically Saturday was the 15th anniversary, but there's one thing that's been true since day one, it's that Sam and Fuzzy don't work weekends.)

It's hard to believe that it's been 15 years since I posted the first S&F comic online. It was a whole different world online back then. No Youtube. No Facebook. I think I actually uploaded the first chunk of the archive using a 56k dial-up modem. And uh, yeah, I guess the comic itself was pretty different back then, too.

But here I am, still at it! And here you are, still reading it. It's been my privilege and pleasure to bring you all the saga of Sam and Fuzzy all this time. (Sorry about that one update that was a day late. I had appendicitus.) I've had a ton of fun, particularly as we've hitall the big climactic story stuff that's happened over the last year and into the next!

Anyhow, in celebration of this momentus anniversary, for the next week you can download the Sam and Fuzzy Fix Your Problem E-book -- the first ebook in the current series -- for FREE. (And the rest of the e-book series is available in a big bundle for 60% off!) Feel free to download it for yourself, or share it widely with anyone in your life that you think might enjoy it.

We return on Wednesday, with a comic that will probably actually have Sam or Fuzzy in it! See you then.
