The history of American comics is, in many cases, a history of partnerships--Siegel and Shuster, Lee and Kirby, Eastman and Laird . . . the list goes on and on. One such partnership was the Connor/French team, which co-created Fuzzball & Scuzzball and their supporting cast back in the 80's. This duo might have gone on to do great things in the comics world, but sometime in the early part of the 21st century French left it all behind for the glamorous world of online fortune-telling.

Recently, though, I posted The Valentine Card Caper, and it made me want to get the team back together. I knew I wanted to do a series of comics about Creature the Creature, and who better to collaborate with than the man who created Creature? I asked D.F. French to come out of retirement and write some comic scripts for me. He agreed, we tossed ideas around, and, I'm happy to report, the old magic came back in no time.

And so today's comic was written by D.F. French and drawn by me, Leighton Connor.

Next Week: The Connor/French team continues its dynamic comeback!

I almost forgot to mention--the other reason I asked D.F. French to write some scripts is to save myself time, so I could fit another art project into my busy schedule. That other art project is a collaboration between me, Matt Kish, and Joe Kuth called Seeing Calvino. My first illustration for it, the city Dorothea, just went up.

Because Seeing Calvino updates every Wednesday, Fuzzball & Scuzzball will now be updating on Thursday instead of Wednesday. Today's strip is not late; everything is going according to plan.

It has truly been an honor to raise my head from the sands of despair and once again collaborate with my old partner, who now looks way younger than me. Switching the focus from drawing to writing was an intimidating prospect, and I am elated to see the end results are just as successful as the products of our previous form of making comics together. Kudos to Mr. Connor!
