I liked in that comic that, in the few panels between Max's "death" and him talking telepathically, Sam looked really dejected, which is completely understandable, as you see pretty much the same thing at the end of The Tomb of Sammun-Mak.
It's not hard to think that sadness could quickly spiral out of control to drink, and violence, and drink-induced violence!
