    If you're a fan of the character and the artistic style you'll definitely find something to love here, but as I can attest to, it's not a book that everyone will get the same level of enjoyment out of. Read Full Review

    Look here's the thing. I'm almost certain that if I went back and read the last 4 issues in a row, this issue would still barely function as a conclusion to a story. I think the long delay here was not just the art. I have a feeling this one took a long time to write, and then the end result of that wasn't great. This issue is mostly full page splashes. How that real estate could have been used to tell a better... Actual story, we'll never know. But this miniseries is a let down for me as someone who enjoyed Maxx up to a point, then enjoyed the ambition behind its latter half, and wanted to enjoy this. It's just not good and you have to be blind as a bat to come away from this with a positive outlook.
