A comic by Sam Kieth, something of a parody on the stereotypical superhero story. Extremely confusing, yet equally awesome, the comic was so good that, when made into a show on MTV, it was decided to have too much quality and was cancelled, just like all the other good shows on that network. The Maxx was a deluded homeless man who believed himself to be a superhero, and deemed himself the protector of a social worker named Julie Winters. Constantly moving between two realities -- our world, and one called "The Outback" -- Maxx became increasingly confused about his own identity, and as it would turn out the only one with the answers was the serial rapist and murdering sorcerer Mr. Gone, his sworn enemy. Damndest thing.
The Maxx is no longer in print because there is no justice in the world.
