Ok! Here's the part of the story where it starts to get a little weird.
MEANWHILE: The Sam and Fuzzy Kickstarter has entered it's final week. And I'm happy to report that we crossed a new stretch goal yesterday! That means that a special Sam and Fuzzy timeline feature will now be added to all editions of the final book.
I'm super excited about this one! As you all know, after 17 years of story and world-building, Sam and Fuzzy built up a pretty elaborate continuity. I think it's going to be really satisfying to see it all plotted out in timeline form! In particular, I think it's going to be really interesting to see the important personal milestones of various characters (ie: the year Sam was born, the year Dev started college, the year Hazel met Brain) charted alongside the major events of the S&F universe and the Underground.
Sam and Fuzzy has always avoided specifying what actual year the "present" is, so to preserve this, I'll mostly be identifying the years with an internal numbering system, like you've occassionally seen me use for Q and A answers here. Sam and Fuzzy met for the first time at Christmas in "Year 0", and had the first year of their adventures together in "Year One". But the timeline will span hundreds of years, from the creation of the Committee all the way to the series finale. (And of course, most importantly: it will include the life of famed 17th century chemist Robert Boyle.)
Thanks for all your support, everyone! It's super exciting to unlock this addition... and of course, it's also pretty exciting to see us push ever closer to our Hardcover 3-5 Slipcases and Art Gallery goals. 7 (and a bit) days to go!
That's all for today. But come back on Friday for our next comic!
