Fairy Tale: As Julie is spring cleaning, Mr. Gone entertains us with a little child-like tale of Julie's traumatic up-bringing, and the little sickly rabbit that scrape, scrape, scrapes, which she keeps hidden under her bed. She learns lessons from her absentee father's denial, and her mother's unflinching willingness to face things that Julie (and Maxx) would rather avoid all together.

    Coming Up Comics - Timothy Merritt Aug 13, 2014

    And while I love the story here and all its psychological psychedelia, its Kieth's artwork that leaves me floored on every panel. This man can draw anything, but it's the choices he makes that make him such a great artist. He might use a thick marker and draw rudimentary children's drawings, or render an image so detailed and full of depth you will forget to keep reading further. For those of you who missed this during its original run, discover a gem in The Maxx: Maxximized. And anyone who is already familiar with The Maxx will be enamored by the remastered art, overseen by Kieth himself. Pick up the book today, and join me in a descent through this beautiful madness.

    Unleash The Fanboy - John McCubbin Aug 12, 2014

    Something that we're nearly always guaranteed is great art (with fans of the original series being able to reiterate that). In this issue Kieth gives us a mixture of tones, with his usual quirky style in the present, with a slightly rougher tone during Mr. Gone's tale. The dynamic layouts of both give the energetic flow that has made The Maxx stand out visually, with the strange creatures being a joy to witness. The stand out thing in this remastered version of The Maxx has to be the colours, with Ronda Pattison pastel like tone being perfect for this series. Read Full Review
