Sampop & Gavsby
is an action-adventure comedy following the exploits of fortune-seeking adventurer Sampop Hooks
and his toon-like sidekick Gavsby Brown
as they delve deeper into the secrets of their unusual--and at times, surrealistic--world and beyond. It's a self-published comic series created, written and illustrated by Gavin Brown and Sam Lishinski in Grand Rapids, MI. Based off its predecessor, a graphic novel called Sampop Hooks, Sampop & Gavsby is filled with various nods to pop culture and art styles that pull inspiration from multiple mediums and genres. Each tale of their exploits is delicately dipped in a well-balanced mix of light-hearted humor and mature adult themes, all of which are drenched in campy action movie nostalgia. Sampop & Gavsby is a good read for those pining for a little wit with their butt-kicking.
