Sam & Max have returned to cause more trouble as a syndicated comic strip! The detective duo's brand of off-kilter humor and sarcastic violence is no longer confined to the fringes of the comic book world. Soon they will be rubbing elbows with Too Much Coffee Man, Sparky the Penguin and other infiltrators of quality on the cartoon pages of distinguished newspapers.

Check out http://www.atlargefeatures.com/purcell/sample1.html to see a sample strip of Steve Purcell's six-foot, suit-wearing dog (Sam) and the rabitty-looking thing (Max). If you like the strip, email the @Large Features
Syndicate and your local paper demanding more!

Fizzball anyone?

Oh, Joy! Another well-drawn, funny strip that won't be appearing in my local paper! Just like Mutts and Liberty Meadows and Fox Trot(well, I like it...)and...

Sounds like the worst newspaper ever. Try this: http://www0.mercurycenter.com/comics/
It's the comics page of my local newspaper, which carries a daily two-page spread of comics. yeah, you do have to submit some info for a "passport," but it might be worth it.

Yeah, it's great to hear that Purcell is working up a new strip. And if I remember correctly, it's only going to be a Sunday strip -- which is as it should be for Sam & Max.
