Comic News:
Maxx Gets Collected
By Brian Jacks


Sam Kieth's beloved series The Maxx returns this August in THE MAXX BOOK ONE TP, the first in a series of collected editions from Cliffhanger Productions.

"I've been looking at these old issues, and the truth is, I don't see what the big deal is," says Kieth. "Seriously though, Scott Dunbier and WildStorm have committed to a first-class reprinting of the full run — all 35 issues — and since it has been ten years, it'll be nice for people who grew up on the stuff and for new readers to put on their bookshelves."

"The Maxx was the first quintessentially Sam Kieth book," says WildsStorm Group Editor Scott Dunbier. "All those wonderful idiosyncrasies and quirks — not to mention bell-bottoms — that we all loved in ZERO GIRL have their roots in The Maxx. Sam's stories, with nifty dialogue at the start by William Messner-Loebs, were endearing journeys that threw super-hero comics a big-league knuckleball, and I mean that in the best possible way."

THE MAXX BOOK ONE TP collects the first six issues of The Maxx, originally published by Image Comics, which spawned The Maxx animated series on MTV. THE MAXX trade paperbacks will go on to collect the entire run of the original series as well as several related projects from the same period.

THE MAXX BOOK ONE TP is a 144-page Cliffhanger trade paperback, and is scheduled to hit store shelves on August 6 with a cover price of $17.95 U.S.
