Roan Zone


It's Roan! When last we saw Roan (at least chronologically speaking), he was busy getting the crap kicked out of him by Hazel. (Not that you need to know about any of Roan's previous appearances to understand this particular story.)


We return on Friday with our next comic, and a fresh round of Q and A! As always, if you've got a question you'd like answered, just pop it in an email with "Q and A" in the subject line, or hit me up on twitter.

Star attraction


I gather this is a suprisingly common misunderstanding. (Sorry, Marcy.)


In other news: a new month's worth of digital bonus goodies have been unleashed over on my Patreon! There's a bunch of fun new artwork and behind-the-scenes content for our S&F Extra backers, new marker art for Art Vault backers, and 6 new 18+ comics and illustrations for Saucy Hippo backers. Check out the Patreon site for more info! (Rest assured, nsfw content is confined to the Hippo tier... you won't see it unless you wanna!)

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


"Back in the day, Jess used to wear glasses but now she doesn't (well, most of the time most of the time). Why did she get rid of them? Was she going for a sexy urban chic thing with fake glasses, or does she buy contacts, or does she use her shape shifting abilities to manipulate the curvature/thickness of her cornea to fix her eyes? Or does she just constantly bump into walls off panel?" -Tom


Jess' glasses were strictly a fashion statement. (She definitely doesn't need them to improve her vision.) To be honest, the main reason she rarely wears them anymore is that they are kind of annoying to draw! Because her eyes are already often partly obscured by her hair, throwing the glasses into the mix just adds one more overlapping layer of visual noise. So, narrative reason: changing fashion. Cartoonist reason: laziness.


"Will we ever see Trevor again?" -Max


Nah.


"How has your experience of the virtual conventions gone so far? I can see that everyone is trying to supply the best experience they can during the pandemic, but how is that working out for you in particular? You have a particularly excellent selection of things we can buy - are we still buying even though we can't be there?" -Alice


 

Alice, this is an interesting question, so I will be brutally honest! In my experience, these virtual conventions have, at best, only generated a tiny handful of extra online sales. Alas! I think the problem is, the vast majority of convention business is selling to casual fans and idle browsers. I think it's very difficult for conventions to recreate that kind of shopping experience online. So generally speaking, that's a part of my income that has just disappeared.

 

Fortunately, the con customers who are also actual S&F readers are much more reliable! And I have definitely seen some of them switch to supporting me online because they know they won't be able to see me in person this year. But generally speaking, these are the folks who don't need a virtual con to remember I exist... so I've seen that increase in online support spread out pretty evenly throughout the year. It has been nice to have that extra support coming in for my online store, my Patreon, and of course the Kickstarter!

I don't know if anyone will ever be able to truly recreate the sales magic of a convention online. But I'm very fortunate that I also have such an established, supportive online fanbase. With the loss of cons, they have been saving my butt even more than usual this year!


Ok, friends, that's a wrap for today. But come back on Monday for our next comic!
