Don't know if anyone noticed yet but the first sam & max comic is up. Not too much there right not. Pretty much just a teaser but still cool. Hopefully we'll have something more by christmas.

    What impressed ME was the way Purcell's art style has evolved. Reading the late eigties/early ninties comics, yeah, there's humour, but there's also obnoxious, blinding colour (often out of the artist's control, i know) and busy backgrounds that occasionally detract from the oomf of the dialogue or the point of the panel. Sometimes they were funny, sometimes they were stupid. If the way this strip is drawn is an indicator of the way they all will be, i think we can say Sam & Max has improved by leaps and bounds. i mean...woah... pastels and carefully drawn "roughsketch" backgrounds? That's something you'd nevvvver see in those old comico/fishwrap books.

    Take a look at the grave in the background. It looks like it's written "Sam & Max" there. Actually it looks like "Sam & Max" that much that there really can't be another option.

    Wonder when the comic will be put on www.samandmax.com. It's showing the same church, but no cartoon.

    Saving to hard drive? Hm, I guess good old prtscr would work with some cutting and pasting? But you'll miss the nice mouse-over thingy.

  • good find :) it does look like it says sam & max

    Samandmax.com will also host the comics. I might download all the images and make a full version in Flash sometime.

  • If the comics are anything like the old comics chances are there'll be some sort of random excuse for them to be underground. They won't be dead just underground for some peculiar reason possibly involving mole people. Like the time where they were on the moon with the explanation being "By the way, Max. That was a brilliant idea, stuffing the muffler with thousands and thousands of match heads and igniting them thereupon providing adequate thrust to break free of the Earth's pull" (From Bad Day On The Moon. Geeze I'm a Sam and Max geek).

    Seriously though, Woo! Sam and Max are back! Does this give anyone else a shiver down their spines?

    I never read (most of) the original comics, so I'm just excited to see these :D

  • The whole changing panel thingy is very nice and all but for some reason the changed panel doesn't actually load until I run the mouse over the top of it and wait a few seconds. Maybe it doesn't do that in IE but I like Firefox much more.
