Sam and Max

Sam and Max are a pair of comic book characters - Sam a dog, Max a "psychotic rabbitty thing" - who occupy a parody of a kitsch USA filled with pointless Americana and junk food living.

They are private investigators (well, Freelance Police).

The comic books are laced with dark, nihilistic and surreal humour. The series was created by Steve Purcell[?] and published in bits and pieces under several different titles and by several different publishers. Most of the bits were collected in a collection entitled Sam and Max: Surfin' the Highway. The series spawned an animated series, which showed on the Fox Network in the US and Channel 4 in the UK, and a graphical adventure game, Sam and Max Hit the Road. In August 2002, LucasArts announced a that a sequel to Sam and Max Hit the Road would be released in the first quarter of 2004.
