In this specially priced, extra-length comic, artist SAM KIETH and writer CHRIS RYALL transport you to a dystopian near-future Japan, where spectral, once-human husks prey on the unfortunates who couldn’t find salvation in the skyscraper-like trees that now dominate the decimated landscape. A discredited scientist works furiously to find a cure, until a one-eyed orphan girl and her pet, uh, urp, force him to rethink everything he knows…
Another great all-star one-shot to benefit The Hero Initiative, the charity that helps comic-book creators in times of great need. Sam Kieth provides an all-new Maxx story, his first in nearly 20 years; Mike Grell takes us on a journey with his classic creation, Jon Sable, Freelance. There will also be several ‘Hero in action’ one-page stories, featuring real-life events where Hero Initiative made differences in comic creators lives!
Sara’s ‘Horse’ Maxx takes her on a journey through a childhood maze of blankets draped over lawn chairs and there she discovers Artie/Gone in a surreal hallucination. Meanwhile a thug named Pablo picks the wrong dumpster to squirt mustard into… as the threat of the Yellow Slug looms.
As the Hooly bears down on Jungle Maxx and Julie in the inner world of the Outback, in the real world a greater trauma threatens Maxx as Julie grapples with whether or not to move out and leave Maxx… forever.
While Julie’s stuck in the bathroom thanks to her morning sickness, Sarah and Maxx’s minds become melded, and Maxx now knows what he must do. He journeys to Julie’s Outback where-amid a sea of skulls-he finds the Leopard Queen. Together they travel to a distant volcano, and while staring into the flaring lava, Maxx’s memories come flooding back to him.
