You can burn your paper fingers in the ashtray

It was only a few weeks ago, but if you either missed Mr. Blank's first Vignette or simply forgot about it already, you can read it right here.

I've decided to try and do something about my ridiculous backlog of non-urgent emails. I'm utilizing a radical new idea called "replying to them." My goal is to respond to an entire month's worth of neglected messages every day or two. It sounds vaguely admirable until you find out the month I just completed is August of 2005. Those emails are 8 months old! Isn't that sad? When I write my responses, it feels as though I am travelling back in time.

I'll be the first to cast stones, I don't let sleeping dogs lie

For some reason, Fuzzy's dialogue in panel two really reminds me of Ryan Estrada's comics. I'm not really sure why, but hey... at least it gives me an excuse to plug Ryan's work. (Ryan is awesome.)

I kind of think it would be fun to have a t-shirt that said "When will society stop oppressing me with its unattainable standards?!?", but I'm not sure that I'm the man to make it. What kind of graphic would you pair with that phrase? Whenever I try to think about it, all I can see is tractors. And I'm pretty sure that doesn't make any sense.

It calms my nerves to see that most of you have been digging this Noosehead-related material. It's always a little scary, unleashing something new and unusual on your established audience, but I try my best not to let that fear ever inhibit me from drawing what my brain tells me I should draw. Anyhow, things are about to get even weirder next week, so be sure to tune in on Monday. Until then, have a lovely weekend!

Here's to the message you made of me

I had a lot of fun putting together today's strip. There's not a lot of call for these sorts of comics in Sam and Fuzzy, mind you. But whenever I get the chance to draw a happy, comfortable couple just goofing around with each other, I always have a good time doing it. I guess deep down inside, I'm actually a huge sentimental mush-bag.

Wait... did I just admit that to thousands of internet readers? No, of course I didn't. That was a typo. What I really meant to say was... I love violence. Also, conspiracies. And that's precisely why the special two-hour presentation of 24 on Monday was so awesome.

We're now exactly half way through the show's fifth season, and it still shows no signs of dropping the ball. In fact, it's quite the opposite. Watching the show, you really get the impression that the story is actually going somewhere definite... that the writers actually have a plan and aren't just making it up as they go and padding it out with lame filler subplots. Everything is tying together so well, it is vaporizing my memories of the fourth season's abysmal midsection and so-so ending. This year, they are on fire!
