Here's an enhanced jpeg of a photocopy of a photocopy I sent to Steve Purcell in 1981. I'm such a fanboy! There will be follow-up images in the next few days, so it actually makes sense to LABEL this post! WOO HOO!

Cool. That book is pretty hard to find these days, at least for a decent price. I'll wait for the reissue of the collected works, which will hopefully be coming out soon. The old paperback of the collected works is going for upwards of $300 right now!

The craziness is that this was a pretty low profile book in the 80s, but was really beautifully drawn and very very funny. How many issues were there? Like, 3? 4?

So what's up with this Sam and Max videogame thingy?!

Oh, and out of peer pressure, I revamped my blog too. And stole your orange.

Funny you should post this. I just saw a review on TV of the latest episodes of the "Sam and Max" computer game serial.

Me, I gots every Sam and Max issue (except the "Dirt Bag Special"), the collected paperback, a Sam & Max car window sticker, three official VHS tapes of the animated TV show and the Lucasarts computer game in original box.

Boo-yah.

It looks like Steve Purcell has started posting a new full-color Sam & Max comic online: http://www.telltalegames.com/community/comics/samandmax/issue-1

It's pretty cool, the art is devoid of text until you mouse over the panels.

Actually, looking at it again, the date is 2005, so I guess it's a couple of years old. Still cool stuff!

Cartoon?!

How out of it can I be.

Well, if you don't watch cartoons on Saturday morning, you have a good excuse for not noticing there was a "Sam and Max" show on Fox Kids many years ago. It wasn't aimed at adults like "The Simpsons" or the Adult Swim stuff -- it was marketed and shown like any other kids cartoon. Steve Purcell's involvement is a bit hard to figure out. The look is very faithful to the comic, and I think he was credited with writing a couple of the stories, but the majority were credited to other people.

The show wasn't a hit and was cancelled after one "season."
