"Sam in New York" is a multi-media project consisting of two graphic novels ("Sam in New York" and "The Book of Joel"), an illustrated anthology of short stories and comics ("Sam in New York: The Anthology"), and an upcoming free-to-play visual novel (for mobile and computers).

In the graphic novel "Sam in New York," you experience life (with all its twists and turns) through the eyes of Samuel "Sam" Abramov, a rambunctious young man torn between his parents' desire for him to be a professional and his own love for the stage. 

"The Book of Joel" is a graphic novel about Sam's friend, Joel Farber, an introspective, morose young man with a rich yet turbulent inner life. It focuses on Joel's thought processes and emotional growth as he forges an unbreakable bond with his childhood friend, Malka.
