› Find signed collectible books: 'The Maxx'
The Maxx, originally a 35-comic-book series, is a superhero parody whose costumed crusader is an insecure adolescent, his Gotham City the inexplicable world of sex and violence that adolescents find so attractive-repulsive. The Maxx is huge, purple with yellow claws and an upper plate of gleaming choppers. When down, he is homeless in a dumpster. Up or down, he is often with high-school hottie Julie, whose boyfriend, protector, and pet he is. This setup cleverly chimes with angst-drenched teen fantasies and how teen relationships can look to an observer. Maxx fights an unending battle with Mr. Gone and the isz (eyeless ovoids with needle teeth), and his delusion that he is in "Outbacks," an alternate reality that the whole scenario slips in and out of, hilariously complicates everything. This series will capture your imagination and leave you waiting to read the next volume!! Enter into this dream world call The Maxx. [via]
