After Laying on the couch and feeling sorry for himself, being spied upon by some isz... Maxx plunges down the proverbial rabbit hole, and encounters the "Crappon in the Hat," tries to save a fish, spills some beans, discovers a little girl (who's a developmentally stunted version of the Jungle Queen), then struggles to make sense of it all... and finding himself on Julie's couch again.

    Comic Bastards - Steve Paugh Mar 19, 2014

    It's been a real hoot revisiting The Maxx, and not just because infamous issues like this bring about a heady nostalgia. This is a book – and indeed an issue, as weird is it is -that holds up, even after all these years. It's a strange place to take an already strange series in its fifth issue, but it proves its nerve and resolve to be different. Not a lot of books then – or now – can say the same thing.
