Maxx is a purple-clad superhero living in a cardboard box. His only friend is Julie Winters, a freelance social worker. Maxx often finds himself shifting back and forth between the "real" world and a more primitive outback world where he rules, and protects Julie. Mr. Gone, a self-proclaimed "student of the mystic arts" seems to know more about Maxx and Julie and their strange relationship than they could ever guess, but he's not exactly telling all....not yet, anyway.

The comic book series that the show is based on had a sequel volume. This new run is set in 2005 and brings back most characters from the original run, while adding new characters and plot and world elements. The story now focuses on Sara, who's now 10 years older, and Iago, villainous monster from the Outback with a list of people it wants to kill including characters from the original story. See more »
[Sara's holding a gun to her head]
Ok, heres the point in the story where I have this cathartic revelation that suicide's wrong, that life's worth living and everything'll be OK. Yeah, right. And that's why this story doesn't work!
[Throws the gun down]
'Cause I just don't buy it.
Nobody buys it, but that's not why you go on.
Because things'll change. You'll change.
What about right now?
Right now, you wait.

Sam Keith's The Maxx is a twisted animated journey into the subconscious. And on MTV no less. True, MTV is not a great place for good shows (besides Beavis and Butt-head), but this is one of those few exceptions.
The Show is about an odd superhero called Maxx who goes back and forth from the real world and the dream world called the Outback (not the Australia one). The plot gets a little confusing as episodes go on, but for someone who isn't a teenie bopper watching MTV, it's heaven none the less. Great animation, great drama, and great entertainment. A++
