The Maxx is giving you the Finger!since issue number one

Hello folks, fear not, I am not through with updating this blog just yet. Just loosing steam is all. Been busy catchin up on my comics reading lately and took most of my time. I got to do this piece tonight after I helped a good friend scan his cool sketches to put up on his blog. It’s almost midnight and I am sleepy but fortunately I finished this baby up. For the uninitiated, this here is the Maxx, Sam Kieth’s most popular creation and one of my all time favorite read in comics. A homeless guy who thinks he is a rabbit and is Julie’s spirit animal (if I am not mistaken). that protects her from the outside and the metaphysical world that they happen to exist upon and all the wierd things in between panels. I just don’t why I like this big lug but early on when this character came out of Image I’ve been constantly updating on it and all things Sam Kieth in general. His comics are not your run of the mill type. Veering more on the indie and not the superheroic.


Just an update, Captain N12 release will be hopefully this end of July 20o9 as scheduled and I am asked by the great Motmot to help him out in the dialogue bit over the week and psyched up on that but unfortunately I am still unable to do some sequentials and all I got to contribute to the release will be a pin-up as stated on my previous post, a bad thing, geez. Lazy/coward me I suppose but atleast I get to contribute something to SDR Comics in general. I wonder how the Suede is doing 🙂
