View Full Version : New comics on the way?

Take a look at this post (http://forums.adventuregamers.com/showthread.php?t=4037) over at Adventure Gamers' forums... Or don't bother, I'll quote it:

Hey guys. At Comic-Con today, I asked Mike Mignola (the Hellboy guy) about Steve Purcell. Mignola said he had dinner with Purcell last night and that he's planning to publish a Sam and Max book, sort of a "best of" compilation which reprints a bunch of old strips and (more importantly) contains new material. Mignola doesn't know what publisher he's going through (which means it's probably not Dark Horse as previously rumored; since Mignola is signed to Dark Horse, he'd probably know if that was the case). Anyway, exciting news all around.

So that's pretty cool. Hopefully I can get confirmation on this and some more info. If so I'll be posting news about it soon.

I wonder how much it'll be - my compendium has seen better days. Still, I hope there's more than a page or two of new stuff.

excellent news Jake, kudos

I suspect there'll be more than a page or two of new stuff. I don't remember Mignola's exact words, but it sort of seemed like there was a good amount of material Purcell had been working on.

Fantastic news! A collected Sam & Max volume I won't have to pay 40 for over eBay. What's more exciting, brand new Sam & Max stories! Best news in weeks.

Also, great that Chris got to meet Mike Mignola, that guy is very cool and a great talent at comics (as you'd expect, him being a mate of the incredibly talented Steve Purcell). Some year I need to go to Comic-Con.

Wow, a lot of people are coming out of the woodwork to talk about this.

I wonder if I'll see Mr Metallus...

Go on ebay or one of those online comic sites, I doubt you'll find it in a local store.

Hassle Andrew over and over until he finally gives in and sells you one.

Is this comic the same as Spudvision? Or is Purcell puting out two books?

08-24-2004, 05:25 PM
Spudvision isn't a comic. It's a book filled with little bits of art (concept and stuff, I guess) and... yeah. It's not all Sam and Max, ya know?

This other book is different from visions of potatoes.

Not that there's anything wrong with a tater's vision.
