Sam and Silo

Written and drawn by Jerry Dumas, Sam and Silo chronicles the comic misadventures of a small-town sheriff and his deputy.

Sam and Silo are characters in the classic mold. They don’t attempt to solve the secrets of the universe. They don’t have profound ideas about politics or the economy or the communications revolution. They just aim to brighten their allotted space in the newspaper each day with a laugh or chuckle.

There is much nostalgia in Sam and Silo, which made its newspaper debut in 1977. The backgrounds often show tree-shaded streets, the town hall and the courthouse, all beautifully drawn. The scenes depict a way of life that is warmly remembered by millions of city folk who grew up in places much like Upper Backwater, the strip’s setting.
