Upcoming furry comics for November 2007 (Previews only)
OK, this is a month late, but I almost finished it before I was distracted by a new job in another state. I was almost done, so I figured it was worth finishing to get the information on record. Do NOT let its lateness keep you from getting *Sam & Max: Surfin' the Highway*.

SEP073888F Classics Illustrated Deluxe Volume 1: The Wind in the Willows sc, 6"x9", 144pg, color $13.95
SEP073889F hardcover $17.95
by Kenneth Grahame & Michel Plessix
'The Deluxe line within the Classics Illustrated relaunch presents full-length adaptations, true and respectful to the originals, with the expansive number of pages allowing for the entire novel to be fully adapted. The first volume presents graphic novelist Michel Plessix's lush adaptation of The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame. The artwork is in aquarelle, with thin, precise, detailed lines. Plessix breathes life into Mole, Rat, and Toad (of Toad Hall) as they picnic on the riverbank, indulge in Toad's latest fad, and get lost in Wild Wood. The pacing is masterful -- each panel lingers just long enough to make you appreciate the simple pleasures of life as the original novel. Available in hardcover and softcover editions.' See
http://www.papercutz.com/classics/windwillow/willowhome.html for some sample pages. Nice work.

In addition to all contents from the 1995 original (including "Monkeys Violating the Heavenly Temple," "Bad Day on the Moon," and "On the Road"), the new edition contains extra Sam & Max content from the last decade and an updated cover.' Sam & Max are among the best furry comics ever: not just hilarious but gonzo hilarious. To get a taste of the insanity, check out http://www.telltalegames.com/community/comics/samandmax/issue-1. You have to hover the mouse over the panels to get the dialogue. Highest recommendation.
