Hmm... I wouldn't really call it "racy". (Howard the Duck would be considered that.) It's more irrelevant and suggestive.
It has some cursing (b@stard and d4mn is the worse they would say, but no F bombs) on every other page, suggestive themes, some immature humor, and murder/suicide. Of course, you have your "wanton violence" but most (if not all) of it is either implied or shown off panel.
I still think it's one of the safest underground "irrelevant" comics you can pick up. It's not too offensive if you could take some language and have a healthy sense of humor. There's nothing inside that goes over PG-13.
You do need to know a lot about American pop culture of the 80-90s to fully enjoy all the references, but it is very funny even if you don't know.
But if you are still not sure if you should pick it up, stick with the cartoons. They are funny and pretty faithful to the spirit (just without the cursing).
Have a massive amount of time to write about your favorite comic/videogame/cartoon?
BUT, if you do have a bit of spare time, why not spend it here: The Sam & Max Wiki
You'll be glad you did!
