In one of the many meet and greets user Silkcuts
has had with Jeff Lemire he asked: "So, what is Buddy exactly? I honestly tried to figure it out and you know I mean no disrespect since I love your work, but I can't figure it out." Jeff laughs to what Silkcuts just said and replies, "It's okay. I originally had him as a sheep, but changed him to a Donkey, so he is a Donkey." The two of them laughed a little more and no tension occurred from what Silkcuts gambled could of been an awkward and/or offensive moment.
Current State of Buddy
With the events of issue #17 of Sweet Tooth we learn Buddy is the son of Tommy Jepperd
. Jepperd is currently under the assumption Buddy is dead, but in truth is in custody of Abbot
- Buddy was originally a Sheep when Jeff Lemire came up with him
- Buddy's first word was "D-DA?" It was our belief Buddy could not speak until that moment.
