Country of origin:
Like a lot of other series in Europe, Sammy started in Spirou
magazine. The series turned out to be quite successful and was transformed into a series of albums. There is currently 37 albums published from Dupuis Publishing. Despite its success, Sammy has not yet been transferred for other medias like cartoons or merchandize.
Sammy was originally written by Cauvin and drawn by Berck. In 1996 Berck retired and the artwork was handed over to Jean-Pol (Jean-Paul van den Broecke).
