Sammy The Mouse Book 1 by Zak Sally. $14. 96 pages. Printed by hand by the author. Published by La Mano.
Looking for 'the great American novel of comics'? Well, this is it. If you haven't read Sammy The Mouse before, it's time to remedy that. The series has been published in different formats over the years, but these hand printed books that Sally produces out of his La Mano studio offset press are the way to read them, a true vibrating piece of art. There is NO ONE in comics like Sally, to call him a 'great storyteller' doesn't really get at it. These are cartoonists' cartoonist comics, but into another dimension. Highest possible recommendation.
