The greatest export of Znorkon 6 is vanity licence plates reading "UR1 STUD"

I love Mr Ackerman. Strips in which he appears really write themselves, and as you can probably tell, I have a blast drawing him.

Sam tired. Too many papers. Trogdor sentences papers to burnination!

I happened to stumble across this website on Saturday. Basically, it's a site devoted to quite a few cartoonists from my neck of the woods... British Columbia! You may have heard of this province from such news stories as "BC Premier gets Blotto in Hawaii," or "BC Premier is Really Terribly Sorry About Getting Blotto in Hawaii."

Anyhow, Bent Comics is full of lots of good comics and comic type things. Some of them have run in the Martlet in the past. You may have heard of the Martlet for publishing such news stories as "BC Premier is Antichrist for getting Blotto in Hawaii."

Yes, I am just kidding. Those newspaper types can be so sensitive!

Copying is a form of flattery

First of all, VOTE VOTE VOTE. Sam and Fuzzy needs about double its current votes in order to crack the base of the top ten. I know there are more than enough of you readers to accomplish this, so pleeeeze give me a hand! I'll be your friend.

In this weeks issue of the Martlet, the University of Victoria's student newspaper, a comic was printed that parodies all of the other comics in the paper, including Sam and Fuzzy. I don't normally read the Martlet too closely, but the crudely drawn images of my own characters couldn't help but catch my attention.

At first I was really excited! Kurt Kobain said it best -- he knew that Nirvana had finally made it when Weird Al Yankovic wrote a parody of "Smells Like Teen Spirit." Unfortunately, this parody was a serious let-down. First of all, the thing was really a commentary on the entire comics section, and on the Martlet as a whole, so there wasn't exactly too much room to mock me specifically. Secondly, other than some really bad drawings of Sam and Fuzzy, there wasn't really any direct commentary on my comic -- at least not that I could tell. Admittedly, this comic was a tad hard to decipher, as it looked like it was drawn by a team of rabid monkeys. Anyhow, this man's scathing parody essentially consisted of: "Ha ha, you're not funny!"

I was crushed. I mean, where's the EFFORT? Sam and Fuzzy is rife with attributes suitable for parody! Please, people, if you are going to parody me, put some effort into it. Don't just cop out... tell me how you REALLY FEEL.

I'm so disillusioned.
