The bad kind of hugging

The story of Chompy is probably one of the most well-liked in the Sam and Fuzzy archive. It's one of my favourites, too. Chompy's full origin story can be found here. It can also be found in sexy, eye-friendly dead-tree format in the first Sam and Fuzzy book. (The one with the tabloid magazine parody on the cover.) Finally, the single strip explaining how he came to live with Rikk is right over here.

It was also a lot of fun to be working with Rikk again. I still had Mr. Estoban and his brainfork fresh in my mind after using them in the original bonus story for book two. The real Rikk gets a little grumpy about how goofy I depict his cartoon counterpart, but honestly, I think it's a lot closer to the truth than he'd like to admit!

Phoenix Wright is seriously addictive. And the cast and storylines are so memorable and thoroughly developed, much more so that you usually see in a videogame. (Especially a handheld game!) It kind of feels like you're playing a videogame adaptation of a TV show that doesn't exist. No wonder this game has earned such a sizeable cult following.

I particularly enjoy the way that Phoenix never settles for just proving his client is innocent. No, he always manages to prove who the real criminal as well, even though he is only a defense Attourney. My mother says it reminds her of Perry Mason. I wonder if they ever got that show in Japan?

We talked our way through city lights

The story of Sam, Candice and Rikk spanned an entire year's worth of comics. Rikk's recap will equip you with everything you need to know about that story, but if you want to check it out first hand instead, it's right there in the archive. Just start here and get ready to press the "next" button a lot!

After much patience and searching, I finally secured a copy of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attourney without having to mortgage my house. (Hyperbole; I don't even own a house.) I wonder what actual lawyers think of this game. I'm sure it's too far removed from actual court proceedings to feel like work for them... but would the game actually be fun? Or does the fun rely to heavily on it being a novelty for the player to pretend to be a lawyer and shout "objection" a lot?
