i detect a slight hint of jealousy coming from lynda...

and who does the brown tail and blue boot belong to? i thought it might've been one of the loup garou crew, but while one of them does have brown fur, he was barefoot...barefootpaw...barepaw?

No 'wolf in particular, just a random Wolvertonian. And it's actually a hi-top sneaker. Didn't really think about it before, but yes, all the members of Loup Garou are barepaw. Probably because they'd originally been drawn 'way back when'. I think the first footwear I put on a 'wolf had been Floyd, from the resurgent drawings that directly inspired the comic.

Re-reading your comment it seems you meant Warren or Zevon. Those two were created for the comic. Both are shown barepawed as well. They're not at the WCM concert - they're busy loading up the bus for LG to take off after it.

not all of them; one was wearing sandals in the prior panel - the black-furred, green-eyed wolf who was on the piano in chapter 17

Wow! Yes, you're correct. Apparently I decided to give Woofer double strapped sandals this time and forgot about it. He doesn't have them when he's playing the keyboard at the concert.

At first I thought you might have meant the 'wolf pushing the piano in panel 3 of page 223. But he's got low cut bolt sneakers. Incidentally, this 'wolf can also be seen on page 22 at the concert, same panel as when we first see Zevon. This 'wolf's not random, though. He's a character who existed at the very beginning (in the "Werewolves Playing Pool" picture I drew) who has yet to make his way into the comic other than these cameos. As far as pushing the piano, he's just helping out WCM. If you're curious about his name, a little detective work will reveal the answer, as he "appears" on another page as one of the responses to Talbot about the raccoon on page 154.

no, i meant the wolf in the last panel on this page

the one pushing that piano has what looks like orange fur - or i guess ginger would be a more appropriate term - not brown

also, next random question...can wolves get sick, or are they immune to diseases/illnesses like most RPG depictions of them tend to have them?

I've thought of the answer to this long before the current state of the world. Their ability to renew/regenerate themselves each time they shift negates/erases any virus or disease they contract. So, in essence, they cannot get sick or diseased.

I should also mention that 'wolves who remain in their wolf forms "all the time" generally revert to human and back to wolf at least once a month so as to rejuvenate themselves because this activates their "nigh immortal" power, a.k.a. regenerative longevity (as mentioned on Page 39 'Really-O!') They don't HAVE to shift each month, but in order to not age at a normal rate they must. It's up to individual 'wolves. [Also, regenerative longevity is akin to puberty - a biological process that kicks in on its own when a certain age period is reached. RL starts circa 25 years old.]
