I’ve been surprised that I haven’t seen more discussion on the recent events in Sam and Fuzzy.
Since then, well… stuff has happened. What I’ve really been grooving on are the little vignettes with the blank mask ninja – a rather likeable character – tracing the path they took, prepared to hunt them down for… well, vengeance, death, etc, presumably.
The rest of our time has been occupied by the band Noosehead, which has added a whole pile of new characters to the show. They’ve engaged in hijinks and drama – often instigated by our good friend Fuzzy, who seems to have joined their crew.
But still…. somewhere, in the back of our minds, we’re wondering – Where’s Sam?
Well, guess he’s been right under our noses all this time.
And it works. I mean, once you know what to look for, you can see Sam underneath. Looking back through the archives, you can see some of the signs. Heck, maybe everyone else figured this out months ago, and it was only a surprise to me.
Anyway. Sam’s back. Sam is back!
Where does that leave us?
Sam has the right of it – all the mafia ninjas may have wandered on their merry way, but one still remains, tracking him down. We don’t know much about him, but it seems clear that we’re building up to a showdown.
From there? I suspect we’ll be bidding Noosehead goodbye for a while. While there is still conflict within the band itself, I don’t think it will stay that way forever.
(Also, anyone notice that the person ‘Aaron’ really looks like is Lance?)
Anyway, I can’t really tell where Sam and Fuzzy will be heading in the long run. But I sure as hell am glad that Sam is back in one form or another, and suspect the upcoming showdown will live up to the caliber of story that Logan has been recently cranking out.
So welcome back, Sam. Ninjas and all.
