I have a stack of mini comics by Max from the past year. I live in Vermont and I am writing this from my native Kentucky and don't have the luxury of referring back to the books. Suffice to say, everything that Max has published this year is toppermost of the poppermost. He uses a pen like some kind of blunt surgical instrument, and can make me laugh out loud and can make me cringe, sometimes, that is to say, all at once. He stands at the corner of Basil Wolverton Boulevard and Rory Hayes Way, and I desire more energy like that in comics.
