Finally read my copy of Sammy the mouse #1 from 2009 (I am often very guilty of having eyes bigger than my reading time).

It's a nice black and white expressionist style with the characters being based on Disney characters like Mickey Mouse, Pluto and Donald Duck but being altered enough to avoid copyright infringement so it the original characters are only really echoed.

It's a really misery-fest with the entire cast existing on a spectrum of alchoholism. Sammy is agoraphobic and depressed, Puppy Boy suffers from seizures and cannot articulate or share what is thinking and working on.

The world is cold and uncaring and the main order of business for anyone in it is to endure their suffering.
