A bone to pick

Mr. Ackerman's original design -- which I did my best to recreate accurately in this story -- always reminds me of how much I was into Bone back when Sam and Fuzzy first started. Ackerman's general body proportions were definitely inspired by Lucius, as best as I could recreate them in my own art style. (And of course, Fuzzy's eyebrows were inspired by the Bone characters!)

The Bone series is one of my all time favourite comics, and the final two volumes were released while I was working on the first two years of S&F. So it was very much at the forefront of my mind at the time.

Anyhoo, come back on Monday for our next comic, team!

It's Lance! Is Lance the only character in S&F who is a canonical smoker? I honestly don't remember.

I like how this comic pokes fun at Sam's old-fashioned-cartoon-character gloves... something that would only seem weirder and weirder as my art style evolved. (Which is why he eventually lost 'em!)

In other news, I've drawn a few more new inked drawings! I've been posting them to my twitter... here's the most recent ones:

Come back on Friday for our next comic!

Fridge Origins and Patreon Bonuses

The "Self-Review" story was designed to serve as an introduction to the main cast of Classic-era Sam and Fuzzy... a new "first" story! But it wasn't meant to retell, overwrite or retcon any of the existing comics in "Volume Zero", which it takes place after.

Thus, "Fridge" -- the demonic entity living in Sam's refridgerator -- is already in place and settled in when he's introduced here! It didn't feel necessary to try and explain why he was there. After all, his original Volume Zero origin was barely explained anyway. From Sam and Fuzzy's perspective, Fridge just IS.

Of course, the full story behind Fridge's origins were ultimately fully explored years later in the "Six Years Earlier" storyline. But at the time I was writing this Self-Review story, I had finished figuring out what that origin was. So, I peppered his brief appearance here with vague references to those future reveals: that Fridge was not actually "Satan himself", and that he was waiting for something... namely, an opportunity to fix his ailing health so that he could abandon the appliance he was forced to take refuge in.

In other news: a metric ton of new bonus content is up now on my Patreon for this month, including a bunch of fun spooky art, and a slew of new 18+ comics and illustrations for Saucy Hippo backers.
