Comments: The Outback of the Maxx is a desolate place it looks weird as does the Maxx.
Sam Kieth’s art is beautiful in his style and is easy to recognize. He does have a way of making his drawings stand out. Plus they have a touch of strangeness to them.
Batman and the Maxx find themselves trapped in the Outback. As they chat Batman learns about how strange this Outback is. Is it even a real place or only in the mind?
This story gets you thinking does everyone have their own personal Outback? Does Batman? This adventure these two are on is the strangest thing ever. The Batman seems to be catching the Maxx’s personality.
In the Outback fish fly through the air. Which here is normal.
Batman and the Maxx find themselves working together but to achieve what? They have no idea how to return to the normal world.
These two super-heroes are totally different from each other and you would not think they would match up so perfectly but Sam Kieth does just that with them. The art, of course, is weird and oh so wonderful to behold.
