[quote]IDW Returns To The Groundbreaking Series In Multiple Formats

San Diego, CA (July 1, 2013) - Sam Kieth’s The Maxx was a runaway sensation when initially published. Kieth’s exquisite artistry and quirky stories resonated with readers who had never seen anything quite like it before. Exploring the strange relationship between two realities, The Maxx follows the dual identities of a man caught between the real world and a heroic fantasy realm called The Outback. The Maxx ran for more than 30 issues and inspired a popular animated show on MTV.

Now, 20 years later, the striking series is returning to comic shops with fully re-mastered and re-colored printings of the classic stories, and all supervised by Kieth to ensure the highest possible quality. The Maxx: Maxximized will also feature brand-new painted covers by Kieth Additionally, IDW will-for the first time ever-release a series of hardcover Maxx collections. And if that wasn’t enough, there will also be Artist’s Editions enabling readers to finally see Sam’s beautiful and delicate line work as they never have before.

“I want to thank my pal Ted Adams,” said Sam Kieth, “for giving me and some of my books a home at IDW… I hope he doesn’t lose his shirt!”

“Sam, as usual, is self deprecating to a fault,” said editor Scott Dunbier, “he’s an amazing artist and a good friend, and I could not be happier to have him at IDW.”

Kieth will also create a set of three comprehensive new art books called The Worlds of Sam Kieth that will showcase his incredible powers as an artist, but also tell the story of who he is and how he came to be the artist he is. The first volume is debuting at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con International.

The original artist on Sandman, which he co-created with Neil Gaiman, Kieth’s enchanted style quickly grabbed the attention of readers, and his success allowed him to explore his own creations with The Maxx and Ojo. While his career in comics has found him working on some of the most iconic characters, he is arguably best known for creating The Maxx, and IDW is looking forward to being intimately involved in the next chapter of this classic character’s legacy.

Et j’imagine qu’une partie des profits pourra aller à William Messner-Loebs, qui en a bien besoin.
Riche idée, en tout cas, c’est une série vraiment à nulle autre pareille.

Jim

Ah ça je prends.

C’était bien branque, The Maxx. J’en ai un très bon souvenir.

J’avais fui comme tout le reste de la production Image mais il parait que c’était bon. Par contre je me demande si un rythme mensuel, ça va marcher? Il est vrai qu’ils ont déjà essayé des rééditions mensuelles avec Popeye

J’espère que Delcourt (ou un autre) nous proposera la vf. J’adore l’univers poétique de Sam Kieth.

J’ai déjà tout (les débuts en mensuels) puis la parution en TPB. Et c’est effectivement très barje et parfois très confus mais c’est un agréable souvenir de lecture comme seul Kieth en est capable.

Espérons que IDW y trouve son compte parce que c’est quand même une sacrée longue série.

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. [/quote]
