    The simple summary of this book is that Julie decides to leave The Maxx behind to sort her life out and he’s not chuffed about it! Wow, that sounds… boring. There’s some weird stuff about the Outback, which is imaginary or something, Mr Gone, who’s dead but isn’t, some kid with his arm stuck in a wall that’s also a portal, and a flashback issue to Julie’s childhood. But mostly it’s a very muddled and meandering book with little substance for all its self-conscious “artiness”.

There’s some weird stuff about the Outback, which is imaginary or something, Mr Gone, who’s dead but isn’t, some kid with his arm stuck in a wall that’s also a portal, and a flashback issue to Julie’s childhood. But mostly it’s a very muddled and meandering book with little substance for all its self-conscious “artiness”. I liked The Maxx initially because it’s a peculiar take on the usual superhero story. It’s a bit whacky with lots of cartoony animals like the Isz showing up (eyeless gremlins) and there’s some question over what The Maxx is anyway - is he some crazy homeless friend of Julie’s? Her spirit animal? Just a lost kid dreaming it all up? But a lot of those interesting questions get pushed to the side in this third volume of the re-mastered series to be replaced with… ... a whole lotta nothing instead! There are entire issues here where I couldn’t tell you what the point was, like the kid with the arm stuck in the wall - why was that relevant? And what is Mr Gone’s deal anyway - so many pages with this guy sitting against a wall talking gibberish! A random kid who wants to be a supervillain for some reason? The Maxx sulks the whole time while Julie dithers about, as is her wont, until she packs her bags and goes. So. What. Sam Kieth’s art is fine but his and William Messner-Loeb’s script is tedious to say the least. I’m struggling to understand why I should care about anything that happened in this book. The Maxx is an interesting character but without a story to match, it’s the dullest comic to read. Kieth and Messner-Loeb being weird for the sake of it is much too trying to enjoy. This third volume is the worst one yet in a series that continues to decline in quality.

    This was pretty good though the series just gets weirder. Too tired to writer a full review will come back later. Still solid though.

    This volume is where The Maxx really starts to broaden out and tell the stories of other people who don't interact with or barely interact with the main character. It's that aspect which really gives the series legs. When it uses its surreal aspects to comment on the reality of life is when it's at its best.

Sagasti para Mulder Comics: THE MAXX: ESA ETAPA DE LA VIDA EN QUE DEMANDA CAMBIOS DE RUMBO THE MAXX MAXXIMIZED - volumen 3 Por VÍCTOR A. SAGASTI Los giros argumentales que se dieron en la entrega anterior, sirvieron para aclarar qué rol juega THE MAXX en la vida de JULIE. Para terminar de englobar ese aspecto, en esta entrega se muestra el motivo específico a modo de remembranza. La revelación quizás culmine el ciclo de WINTERS en esta saga, pero no significa que la historia finalice; se abren nuevas posibilidades sobre qué camino tomará THE MAXX sin su “REINA DE LA PANGEA”. SARAH tomará la posta como una de las protagonistas. Al tener lazos que la ligan con MÍSTER GONE, genera expectativas en cómo se vayan a desarrollar las líneas narrativas. Al ser parte THE MAXX de un mundo poblado de enmascarados (los antihéroes de los 90´de la editorial IMAGE), algo que ya se abordó en el número anterior, siempre genera mitos esta clase de seres. Partiendo de ese concepto, se verá a unos chicos tomando posición por el que da nombre a la historieta, y otros por MÍSTER GONE con sus esbirros los ISZ. Quedan 4 entregas, con un panorama flamante, el mundo subconsciente y real, variopintos personajes, decisiones de vida, estupor por lo leído, la inocencia de un juego de niños en este cruce de realidades, pero sobre todo, una impecable historia que merecía la reedición del clásico de culto de los 90´, THE MAXX. Publicado originalmente en USA por la editorial IDW en los números de THE MAXX: MAXXIMIZED, 9 al 12 entre los meses de julio a octubre de 2014. El equipo creativo fue: SAM KEITH en la elaboración de la historia y los dibujos. Guiones de WILLIAM MESSNER—LOEBS. Entintada por JIM SINCLAIR. Coloreada por RONDA PATTISON. Portadas a cargo de SAM KEITH y RONDA PATTISON.

    This volume picks things back up, and seems have been intended as an ending to the comic. For those familiar with the MTV television show, the arc presented in that show ends with this volume. Julie leaves Maxx and Sarah/Sara becomes an increasingly important character, being the origin for Mr. Gone. Julie is believable here, and the nature of the "Outback" becomes more clear.

That said, there does seem to be an anti-climatic ending to the story which would have been more "problematic" if it had actually been the ending to the piece. Many who want more conventional comic book narratives and clearer resolution will be disappointed in this volume although I think the storytelling is strong here as is the mythology building.

    Finally the art is starting to work. Does the story make any more sense? No, it keeps getting more weird. Feels like a nonsense ride through Keith's psyche. I think most of the stuff he writes is a bit like this. Am I still interested to know how it works out? Yeah, maybe it will pull itself together soon... Finally the art is starting to work.

    A superhero book that isn't a superhero book. And one that spells out some things in odd ways. He builds up all this mystery and tension only to dispel it almost immediately and bluntly delivered via Mr. Gone. Very interesting. A superhero book that isn't a superhero book.

    The more of this series I read the more I think it was very underrated. It's going to eventually need a payoff that explains the weirdness but to this point it's been a very original story. There's really nothing else quite like this out there, or if there is I'm not aware of it. We are starting to find out more about Mr. Gone and seeing more of the real world. Things are becoming a little more substantial in this volume as far as more real world story and less existential story.
