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!”

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.

"Ted Stearn's Fuzz and Pluck passes more life and humanity than most humans." — Gary Panter
 
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." — David Mazzucchelli
 
"Another highly qualified addition to the Fantagraphics roundtable of Haute Couture." — Chris Ware
 
"Fuzz and Pluck is like Luis Buñuel, Samuel Beckett, Lewis Carroll, and Abbott and Costello having a circle jerk in Ted Stearn's brain." — Kaz
