Sam and Fuzzy Q & A: Political Edition
Got a question you want answered? Just drop me an email with "Q & A" in the subject line!
"Have you ever tried doing a political cartoon?" -Alex
I don't think I have! There are certainly some Sam and Fuzzy comics that comment on political issues -- and of course, one particularly infamous old strip that comments on comics-that-comment-on-political issues. But I don't think I've ever drawn an actual, proper editorial cartoon that directly comments on a specific real life political issue or event. Not really my thing, I guess!
"So is Herb Z is a parody of John K? lol" -FeMo
Not too directly. He's meant to be kind of a broad parody of "troubled genius" creators from that particular era of "creator-driven" cartoons. John K, unfortunately, has proven to be such a completely reprehensible dude that I would honestly find it too depresseing to parody him or his gross behaviour specifically.
"Which of the new cast members is your favourite?" -Rex
I assume you mean, like, the new folks from the club? (Cynthia, Ruby, Alicia and Vulfie?) Honestly, I think I am still learning the answer to this question! As is often the case, I am learning a lot about them as I write them. Sometimes characters surprise you!
That's all for this week, team. But come back on Monday for our next comic!
