Volume six collects the Friends of Maxx miniseries. The first issue tells the story of Dude and Mickey's relationship woes while the next two tell about Ira's release from prison and his uncle trying to teach him how to be a man.

While I dug these stories, they just weren't the same. There was ver... ...more

Sam Kieth creates such a twisted, darkened vision of the world we live in, yet it is wholly accurate.

The fragmented, fragile states of the characters is mirrored in the fluctuating artistic mediu... ...more

The series ended with Volume 5 and was fantastic! Stoked to find the TV show to re-watch. This volume is just a few extra stories that are only marginally relevant to The Maxx.

A veces me sorprende mi poca capacidad de retención.

More about Mickey and Dude, and a whole new story in the "Friends of the Maxx" issues. I'm glad that they left the end of Volume 5 as the actual end. Good read, great art, as always. Twisted goodness, as always. :) ...more
