Sam Kieth's own quirky brand of brilliance has been wowing fans and inspiring cartoonists for more than 25 years. As one of the earliest creators for Image Comics, Kieth created The Maxx - a homeless superhero who lives in a box. Both Maxx and his social worker friend, Julie, share adventures in both the real world and in "the Outback," a fantasy realm inhabited by their jungle-inspired totems. In this new edition, each page has been scanned from the original art, remastered, and completely recolored under the watchful eye of Sam Kieth. Collects issues #1-4.
