    Maxx busts into the series by emerging from his cardboard box home and saves an attractive woman from her would be attackers. But when the cops show up all they find is a large purple homeless man in a purple suite. Unfortunately with the Maxx in custody it leaves the attractive woman open for Mr. Gone

    While in police custody Maxx slips into the Outback and under attack by a throng of Is. With one quick swipe the Maxx frees himself and we get our first look at the Leopard Queen.

    Maxx’s social worker Julie receives two phone calls; the first is a disturbing voice that Julie takes for just some ‘creep’ the second informs her of Maxx’s incarceration. Now free the Maxx and Julie spot a suspicious looking figure using phones in an unusual way.

    We also see Mr. Gone enter a laundromat and leave him as he attacks another girl.


    • Also published in Ash Can versions, and a Glow in the Dark variant cover.

    The Cover I've never been a fan of the first issues cover. I never felt it conveyed anything of the subtly and humour you are going to be treated to inside. It looks like yet another masked super-hero, with a ridiculously over developed body and a blood splash to show this is a little more brutal than your usual Marvel/DC gay romp through the park.  The Story Like many people, I suspect, my first experience of Sam Kieth's The Maxx was from the MTV show that took the comic and reproduced the fee...
