They’re back! If you’re familiar with Sam & Max, Steve Purcell’s delightfully demented pair of vaguely animal-like things, you’ll be thrilled to your cynical little toes that there is a new Sam & Max interactive webcomic on the Telltale Games site. There’s only one page up at the moment, but get in on the ground floor and sign up to be notified when pages are posted. (The image above is from an older print comic.) You can read the press release here.
If you’re not familiar with the sardonic duo, drop on over to The Unofficial Sam & Max Website, a veritable treasure trove of information on the various incarnations of Purcell’s deranged characters, from comics to games and the short-lived TV show. My favorite, of course, are the original comics and the samandmax.net site features a nice taste on the Ads and Shorts page. It’s an excellent site maintained by Jake Rodkin and David “Metallus” Eggers.
If you can, pick up some of Purcell’s original comics on eBay or wherever you can find them. Sam & Max are my favorite “Funny Animal” comics, and I do mean funny and I do mean “animal”. Where does Max keep that gun, anyway?
