Double Eisner nominee (for his acclaimed Recidivist #3, which SPIN Magazine also called one of its "favorite things" in January) and all-around hot cartoonist Zak Sally leaps into Ignatz fray with the first issue of the ongoing Sammy the Mouse series. Rollick with Sammy and his pals Puppy Boy, H. G. Feekes and Him as they walk around, have epileptic seizures, talk to disembodied voices, drink liquor in a bar the shape of a giant baby, and scare the living hell out of each other. The artwork on Sammy the Mouse will be created using a sophisticated two-color process Sally already showed off to fine effect in a recent MOME, making it one of the most visually arresting of the Ignatzes.

"One of the best crafted comics I read all year... There's something about Sammy the Mouse which affected me in a very visceral way, and I'd be completely dishonest if I said this wasn't my favorite comic of the year. I suspect more people will come around to my way of thinking as more issues are released. In the meantime, you'll probably agree that, at the very least, it's a very good comic." – Dick Hyacinth, "Best Comics of 2007"
