Fantastic news, Sam & Max fans! After more than ten years of being out of print, Telltale Games and Sam & Max creator Steve Purcell have joined forces to bring back the Surfin’ the Highway comic collection. Best of all, it’s being updated as a special anniversary edition featuring 26 brand-new pages, a redesigned cover and an author’s note, and it’s on pre-order now in two versions. Comic stores and Telltale will both offer a $19.99 paperback, which is scheduled to ship on February 25th, with a signed, limited edition hardcover version set going on sale this spring for $49.99 exclusively from Telltale’s website.

But that’s not all. Anyone who places an order for the Surfin’ the Highway collection through February 29th will be gifted a free download of Sam & Max Season Two’s first episode, Ice Station Santa. Also within that same time frame, those who purchase the complete Season Two collection in tandem with the comic will receive a 25% discount, cutting the price of all five episodes down to only $26 total! Oh, and one more thing. An all-new Sam & Max Highway Surfing Poster Print just went on sale as well, so don’t forget to check that out.

“Thank Telltale for poking and prodding me to finally re-release Surfin’ the Highway,” says Sam & Max creator Steve Purcell. “Since the mid-90’s edition has become scarce, I wanted to revisit the design of the book and have fun with the idea of it being some rare ancient volume. It’s great that new fans can now find the book and folks who don’t want their rare vintage edition mangled can stock up and start indoctrinating their friends. Flipping through the bound pages, I couldn’t help but blurt out, ‘This makes me want to draw comics again!’ Fortunately, no one was close enough to hear.”
