Sam and Fuzzy Q & A: Close Encounters Edition
Got a question you want answered? Just drop me an email with "Q & A" in the subject line!

"Gertrude discussing Sam's romantic life has me wondering - does
Gertrude know Alexa or Candice? Candice in particular - they're both
lady ninjas of about the same age, right?" -Samuel


Despite being such a significant pretense in the comic for nearly two years, Gertrude has interacted with surprisingly few of the other major cast members. Her time in the spotlight was pretty much a long road story with a very small core cast, and once that story was over and the big cast was reunited, she took off! This is as close as she ever got to meeting Alexa or Lance, and this is as close as she ever came to talking to Nicole.

I don't think it's too likely she ever would have had any significant interactions with Candice, either... although I reserve the right to change my mind about this someday if it seems like a good idea! Candice was not actually a ninja for very long, and she was pretty much a lowest rung grunt for most of her career. But Gert came from the ninja mafia's equivalent of aristocracy. (And was kind of a snob about it at the time.) She probably wouldn't have mixed with the peons much.

"I used to have a Sam & Fuzzy RSS, but I got a new computer - and now it's gone! Worse, I can't find it again. Also: having missed on reading Sam & Fuzzy for over a year (without an RSS feed to remind me), the new updates are amazing. And you're amazing." -Charlie

Thank you for the nice words, Charlie. A lot has changed in the comic in the last year, it must be very shocking to come back to!

The link to the RSS feed is actually right at the top of the newspost, in the "feed" bar! It'll have a more prominent menu link in the new site redesign that I swear is almost done, honest!

I'm not sure why, but the RSS feed link doesn't seem to be compatible with all browsers. For me, it works in Firefox but not in Chrome. Any theories, RSS users?

"Any chance of an actual breakout hit single for us to enjoy with our ears? I'd pay money to listen to screw you and your lies, you snake-tongued mobster skull lightning bolt swirly dagger hash radioactive!" -James

Nicole's new single, "Screw You and Your Lies, You Snake-Tongued Mobster *#$%&!", is one of those things that I think will remain more powerful if left to the reader's imagination!

I did once write the music and lyrics to Noosehead's biggest hit, "I Will Eat Your Family", but I never really had the time or collaborators necessary to record it. Alas!

Notes of note

Topatoco has posted their Holiday Ordering Shipping Deadlines! The first deadline is December 7th, which will be the last chance for international customers to place an order using any of our international shipping methods aside from USPS Express Mail International. December 12th is the first deadline for US buyers, and your last chance to use regular USPS First Class and Standard. Be aware!

Hey! Do you love 2D side-scrolling pixely platforming/combat games as much as I do? Then may I direct you to the Tiny Barbarian DX kickstarter! Tiny Barbarian is made by the mega-talented Michael Stearns -- who you may remember from the Dawn of Time webcomic or a handful of great Sam and Fuzzy guest strips like this one -- and it's going to be awesome.

And speaking of cool Kickstarter projects, my pal Ryan North has assembled a pretty amazing choose-your-own-adventure style version of Hamlet that you should definitely check out. I actually illustrated one of the endings for the book -- AKA: the best ending -- and thanks to the success of the kickstarter so far, I get to illustrate a second one too! How great is that?

Ship It

Aw, Gertrude. I have to admit, I missed drawing you and your goofy Mickey Mouse haircut.

Remember, team... if you'd like to receive some Sam and Fuzzy swag in time for the holidays, don't be afraid to place your order early... especially if you want to use the cheaper (ie: slower) shipping options. Topatoco will be posting specific deadlines for each shipping methods and regions soon!

Hey, you are remembering to keep up with Skull Panda, right? There are three new strips a week, carefully crafted by infamous alternative cartoonist Rikk Estoban, with largely unwanted assistance from myself.
