The Maxx

Here are some of the main cast from the comic series and animated mini-series, "The Maxx":The Maxx - big guy in purple, watching Cheers. One of the first lines in the comic is, "It's time for Cheers. Sam and Diane. Norm Peterson. The Coach. And then, after he died, Woody. I don't have a TV now, but that's okay. The shows in my mind are almost always better."Julie Winters - sitting atop Maxx, posed reminiscent of the tender moment on the rooftop when Maxx is clipping her toenails.And Sara/h - (spelled both ways in the comic i've heard) a depressed school girl who wants to be writer.Oh, and don't forget the Dark Isz eating the sofa - the little hench-things of Mr. Gone, the main antagonist. The Shadows i did were symbolic or related to the characters that are in the forefront:The Rabbit: Shadowing Maxx as at one point in the series Julie and Maxx are lead to believe that Maxx is some reincarnation of a Rabbit - Julie's spirit animal. Anyone who's watched the show remember that sad episode with the origin of the rabbit - *scratch scratch scratch*The Leopard Queen: Julie's alter-ego in the other world of Maxx and Julie's minds (The outback!).Mr. Gone: the main protagonist, always taunting Julie with perverted phonecalls and the truth about her past and his involvement in it. He is also revealed to be Sarah's father. Anyhoo ... The Maxx. What can i say? A friggin' awesome trippy, self-aware, almost-superhero-parody, completely-random-seeming comic and animated mini-series (shown on MTV's Oddities, which i would see late at night on YTV and Teletoon - Canadian stations) created in the mind of comic legend Sam Kieth! Sam's my kinda guy and artist. He seems to like the big oafish super-heroes (if there was a team of heroes in a show, i always tended to love the huge muscle-bound lump types, hehe ... or at least the strongest ones like Colossus from X-Men), he must like purple and green because The Maxx is purple, and he is also known for drawing the Incredible Hulk, who's green with purple shorts! He tends to glorify imperfect (as Julie herself quotes, "Actually, i'm pretty flawed. I've got a fat stomach, and chaff marks where my jeans cut in and bad breath from eating all the wrong stuff! And my underarms are stubly!") women who walk around barefoot, paying special detail to the lovely feet. He makes these wild stories that half don't make sense and often don't make any sense at all, yet are intriguing none-the-less! What more could a nerd-boy of my personality want in a comic book series?
