Kickstarters and Slipcases

Whoops! I accidentally uploaded this comic a little early on Sunday. Sorry for the confusion!

In other news: 9 days remain to back the Sam and Fuzzy Kickstarter! And we've got some pretty fun stretch goals for the rest of the campaign, including... yes... a slipcase for hardcovers 3-5!

We've already secured a slipcase for all our brand new Hardcover 6-7 sets, and 1-2 already come with one! So I would love to go back and make a case for 3-5 so that every hardcover has a slipcase home.  If we can do it, it will be included with all our Complete Saga/New Series tiers, and also available for existing hardcover owners to buy as an add-on!

The image up above shows how all three cases would look together, should we be able to make the third (middle) one. Pretty slick, right? And we've got a bunch of other potential stretch goal additions, too. (At the moment, we are very close to unlocking that Timeline one, which is awesome.)

Ok! That's all for today! But come back on Wednesday for our next comic. See you then!

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

"Great to reminisce over all these years of Sam & Fuzzy & Trevor. I couldn't help linking Trevor to X-Men's ForgetMeNot, a character that has been on the X-Men since the early days in most of their seminal moments - any reader not remembering that just being an occurrence of his power breaking the fourth wall. Did you read those comics? Was there any inspiration? Who was I comparing Trevor to?" -Carlos

I haven't heard of ForgetMeNot before, but he sounds interesting! A few other folks have asked if I was inspired by other "forgotten character" or "lame cast addition" metacharacters like Larry from Pinky and the Brain, Poochie from the Simpsons, or even Mr. Poopybuttholefrom Rick and Morty.

But to be honest, the Trevor character and story was really inspired primarily by, well... Trevor. I touched on this a little last week, but Trevor was an old, old idea for an S&F character that I just never found a place for in the Sam and Fuzzy webcomic. Now that the story is over, thinking about poor old Trev -- and how he ultimately never made it in -- inspired the idea of a little story about a character who has no reason to be there. (There's also one other thematic idea that helped inspire this story, which should become more clear next week.)

"So I see Trevor has now inserted himself into the classic era... So tell me... has he, in fact, stolen bonus’s magic time-travelling sombrero and gone back to the classic era to insert himself into Sam and Fuzzy’s old lives in order to prevent them from being mind controlled by their canned pork?" -Soren

Haha! No sombreros! I don't want to spoil anything, but this isn't a time travel story.

(That said, while this story is sombrero free, I did do a very stupid little bonus comic for Patreon about Bonus getting a different famous S&F hat.)

"For how long have you been wanting to write these Trevor bits?" -Catherine

Honestly, not very! The idea for this story came to me extremely recently. I thought it might be fun to write a couple new "Classic"-era comics to while I was running the Kickstarter for the final Sam and Fuzzy books, so I took some time to brainstorm possible ideas and this is what came to me. And I liked the idea so much, I wrote a complete little story about it! And I'm having a blast making it. (As you can probably tell.) I love Trevor, lol.

That's all for this week, team. Come back on Monday for our next comic.

A big catch

I think this might be the first time I've ever drawn Sam and Fuzzy and Trevor in a boat. See? There are always new horizons to discover for Sam and Fuzzy and Trevor, even after 17 years!

It's hard to believe, but today is the official halfway mark for the Sam and Fuzzy kickstarter... two weeks down, two weeks to go. At this exact moment, we're just about to cross our next stretch goal, adding a bonus Skull Panda section to the last book. Thank you so much to everyone who has been able to support the project so far, especially during such a difficult year. With two weeks to go, my plan is to keep adding more fun bonuses and additions, and make your books the best books that I can.

We return on Friday with a new comic, and a new round of Q and A. See you then!
