Cautious Fuzz

Sunday, June 7th, 2009

I can hardly believe it’s June already! Has Story Time With Stan! REALLY been going for more than 5 months already? It seems inconceivable!

Already there have been some changes and concessions to the demands of life. Originally, I wanted the site to update 5 days a week … and I still do WANT that. But it seems unlikely that I’ll be able to produce new material quickly enough to make that possible in the foreseeable future.

And speaking of NEW material, I guess a word or two needs to be said about the current story, Cautious Fuzz. It is celebrating it’s 20th anniversary this year, so it really DOESN’T count as “new.” But the fact of the matter is that very few people have ever seen the tale. And, as the saying goes, if you haven’t seen it before then it’s “new” to you!

When I wrote and drew Cautious Fuzz back in 1989, I had the idea that it would make a good premise for a TV show or at least an ongoing series of comics. I even went so far as to layout most of a follow-up story to the one you’re reading now. But then I got this job in Japan teaching English and … well … plans changed.

I’d still like to revisit Droxine and the other members of the band. They continue to show up on my doodle sheets (and then make appearances at Doodle-A-Day.com). I’ve tweaked their looks a bit, but otherwise they’re still the same … still rocking out … and still wildly denying that they are ANYTHING like “Josie & the Pussycats.”
