Your mommy looks tasty

I think the next couple of weeks worth of comics are going to be a lot of fun! We'll meet some new characters, get reaquainted with some old ones... we'll live together, laugh together, learn together. It may all seem confusing now. But before long, you -- the longtime Sam and Fuzzy reader -- will see that there is no reason to panic. Have I ever led you astray before? (Don't answer that.)

Noosehead, as many of you know, have been mentioned in the comic a few times already. I'm going to list all the times I could think of below. You absolutely do not need to have read any of those comics to understand this current story. This information is strictly for the curious:


Noosehead for Sale

Noosehead Live

Also, there is this pinup of the full band that I drew ages ago. I think that's everything! I'm sure a hardcore reader will let me know if I've missed anything.

It's election day up here in Canadia. Canadonians, please remember to cast your ballot. Unless, of course, you're planning to vote for a candidate that I dislike. If that's the case, I don't mind if you stay in today. I'm sure there are lots of excellent programs on the television!

I'm just kidding, of course. There definitely won't be any excellent programs on television.

Yume wo miseru'n da, please, please me

Well, that's that! What did you think of the latest story? It was a little different than my usual fare, but I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. Are you? As always, my inbox is your sounding board.

The webcomic blog Fleen ran a neat little article about my ongoing battle of words with Jeph Jacques. Sigh... even my imaginary webcartoonist feud gets more coverage than my actual comic. But I'm not bitter, because I like Fleen. Sometimes they actually run articles about comic form and technique and narrative structure. I don't think I've ever seen another webcomic blog that does that regularly. It's nice to see a comic blog that actually talks about, you know, the comics.

On Monday, we shift into the next big phase of Sam and Fuzzy. This one has been stewing in the back of my head for a long time -- almost as long as the whole Ninja/Fridge/Candice arc -- and I am pumped that it's finally time for it to hit the internets. See you then!

Jack is Back

Season 5 of 24 is well underway now that the entire four hour premiere has aired. (I use the word "entire" rather loosely, since my local broadcaster accidently replaced ten minutes of episode 3 with ten minutes of election commercials.)

As a long time fan, I'm happy with it... it might have even been the strongest opener the show has ever had. But on this show, the opening is the part that they always get right. The middles and endings, on the other hand, haven't always been up to snuff. Season 4 went off the rails six episodes in and didn't really recover until the final quarter. There was way too much extraneous time-killing filler in the middle. Bad guys, if your conspiracy isn't convoluted enough to fill 24 whole hours, you are on the wrong program!

The final installment of Whatever Happened to Sam and Fuzzy arrives on Friday. See you then!
