As Simpsons creator Matt Groening says, “This epic tale of a hapless li’l bear and his defeathered friend is why I love comics. All hail the peculiar Fuzz and Pluck and their creator, Ted Stearn!”

• Winner, Best Series at the 2014 Angoulême Festival (French edition).

Pluck, an irritable and featherless rooster, and his best pal, the awkwardly unsocialized but lovable teddy bear known as Fuzz, met long ago in a garbage truck. A tenuous if decidedly co-dependent friendship between Fuzz & Pluck followed, sending them on a series of not-so-heroic adventures.

But now, we find them on a ramshackle barge, slowly drifting out to sea. How did they get there? How will they escape? The answer lies in the book’s title, but the true fun is in the picaresque and often Swiftian adbsurdities that our heroes find themselves in along the way. Ted Stearn’s work is rich with pathos, wit, farce, existentialism and drama. Sometimes cruel but always funny, like a
Winnie the Pooh for adults.

•Writer/ Artist Asterios Polyp, Batman: Year One

Ted Stearn’s farcical tale for survival is as cruel as it is funny, as absurd as life itself. This is a remarkable, beautifully drawn book by one of my favorite artists.

Fuzz and Pluck is like Luis Buñuel, Samuel Beckett, Lewis Carroll, and Abbott and Costello having a circle jerk in Ted Stearn's brain.
