I'm not going to pretend this book makes any sense. But it is funny as all heck. It's about ... well ... a dog and a rabbit-like creature who operate as "freelance police," going around town and stopping crime where they can. You may be familiar with the Sam & Max CD-ROM game from Lucas Art. I mean, either way, how can you not buy a book that has the line, "Oboy! It's the colorized version of Citizen Kane... oh, my mistake--it's just the Flintstones."From Booklist:
Sam, a trenchcoat-clad hound, and Max, described as a "small rabbity thing," the anthropomorphic heroes of the cult comic book collected in this volume, are a far cry from the benignly humorous critters of traditional funny animal comics. Their outlandish cases take them from ancient Egypt (where they confront pyramid-building aliens) and the moon (which they rid of giant cockroaches) to the local supermarket (where they encounter an ectoplasmic manifestation from the spirit world). But their nearly plotless adventures are basically just setups for letting the trigger-happy pair commit senseless but hilarious havoc that both parodies the violence pervading contemporary pop culture and updates and escalates the entertaining catharsis of classic animated cartoon mayhem. Purcell adds to the hilarity by working in hundreds of background gags that evoke the heyday of Mad comics. Sam and Max are probably less known in their comics incarnation than as stars of a popular video game. This collection gives their video audience opportunity to check out their original appearance in comics. Gordon Flagg
