"It's my second year of college, I'm a Junior, with 3 majors (Biology/Psychology/Theater (yes, they go together!)):) which means I'll be in school for 5 years. I know none of that goes together, but hey, I'm special;) I always thought (by images I'd have in dreams) that my spirit animal was a panther or dove (re-occuring images) but if I think about it more of Maxx Mythos I'm going to say a Penguin. I had a stuffed one that I always had to sleep with, and got made fun of when I brought it to a sleep-over. My isz may be tiny fat people...I guess representing a lack of self-confidence."

How The Hell I Ended Up In The Outback: "I met Shaun Struble (aka, Li'l Depressed Boy) in the #tmbg channel on irc about six months ago. We have become really good friends since then, and he finally turned me on to the idea of being on this list like a month ago."
Claim to fame: "i had a pen pal ad published in issue...26, was it? i dunno. I didnt get much response. *shrug*"
Maxx Background: "While in search of something interesting to read one day about five years ago or something, I stole issue #1 at random from a stack of my brother's comic books. Little did i know what i was getting myself into. I had never really enjoyed reading comic books before in my life, but im glad I chose Maxx #1 instead of gen thirteen or something. I became addicted to Maxx immediately, but could never find any other issues in stores around here until the tv series became popular. As soon as i did, i caught up on missed issues and opened a box at the comic store just for Maxx so that i wouldnt miss any other issues. In between issues, i began to collect other Maxx related paraphernalia, including the Clayburn Moore statue and christmas ornament, a poster from the tv series that i found at an art store, an Image comics tee shirt with Maxx on it (along with all the other Image geeks), the card set, of which i am only missing six cards and cannot find anyone who still sells them to complete the set (anyone with tradable doubles should e-mail me immidiately), the action figure (white is), and an extra black is i got from a friend who is in the Mc.Farelane toy club. He is glued to the dashboard of my car and his name is Darth. I still haven't managed to score a tape copy of all the tv episodes, but thats next on the list."
Other comics: "It took me until this past september to actually come to grips with the reality that I would probably not be seeing Maxx again for awhile. It wasnt until then that i really started getting into other comics. I had collected random issues of a few books over the time i was reading Maxx, but it was never the same. First of all, i will never find annother book quite like Maxx, and second of all, its hard to find anything worth reading that can collect frist run prints from the begining, which has always been a requirement of mine in collecting anything. I borrowed all the Sandman graphics from a friend and read those, I collected all the issues of Johnny the Homicidal Maniac and Squee which I LOVE, but they are no longer releasing new issues of. I also collected some random issues of bone, Strangers in paradise, and the tick. Havent been able to get into anything quite as much as im into Maxx though."
Favourite Authors: Neil Gaiman, Terry Pratchett, and Douglas Adams.
Music: "Fave band of all time: THEY MIGHT BE GIANTS. other than that, i like Moxy Fruvous, Soul Coughing, Negativeland, Weezer, The Rentals, david bowie, Tori Amos, and an endless list of industrial/techno/electronica artists."
Movies: "i couldnt pick an all time favorite, but i love The Labrynth, Kids In The Hall: Brain Candy, MST3K, Weird Science, The Breakfast Club, and Better Off Dead just to name a few. If a movie was directed by any of the following, i love that too: Luc Besson, Tim Burton, Quentin Tarrantino, Kevin Smith. Im a movie buff, though. this list is short because i dont want to use up too much more space with this bio."
Other Hobbies: "I love computers, i was a band geek in high school (only female in marching battery), i love my friends, i hate american sports, i love movies, music, art, and literature. I love clubbing and raving, but im not your conventional "lets get fucked up and spend twenty five dollars to go to a techno party that we wont remember in the morning" raver. i catually go to be with friends and hear the music. I am also a CARTOON FINATIC! (Dexters Lab, Johnny Bravo, Cow And Chicken, Powerpuff Girls, Space Ghost [coast to coast and cartoon planet], Gumby, Ranma 1/2, Fushigi Yuugi, and other various american, brittish, and japanese animation.) I was raised a video game goon as well. I love Square Soft role playing games and most other games in which your mind is challanged. I cherish a Playstation, a Nintendo, and a Super Nintendo. I loathe Sega and Nintendo 64. I have only found one PC game to which i have ben able to become addicted, and that is Neverhood."
Aspirations In Life: "i am going to art school for computer animation right now. when im done with that, i may go to georgia state for radio broadcasting at night. I have always dreamed of working for Square Soft, and just recently decided that i would like to work on the staff at Dream Works. I am also good at putting my opinions into words, so i could be an editorialist or a movie critic, too. I love to play vibraphones, and i also sing. i could be in a band. my goal in life is to always be able to have a number of open career choices."

Spirit Animal: Two African Swallows carrying a coconut (for the time being)
Claim to Fame: "I had a letter printed in the Three Oranges issue, which was also mentioned in the indicia (Pigpoop). Of course, none of my family or friends understand how cool this was for me."
"I am a 22 year old student at the University of Oklahoma majoring in architecture. I have lived in Oklahoma since I was four years old. I'm pretty sure that my isz would look like strange, misshapen Barbie dolls. This is a symbolic thing for me, and has NOTHING to do with the fact that I collect Barbie dolls. It's all a huge coincidence. The Maxx is really the only comic I read. I happened to have seen it on the shelf at my local drugstore one day. They had #1 and #2, and I had never heard of this new company -- "Image". The natural born collector in me had to grab the first issues of this new comic by a new company, and then I got hooked on the story, and then they stopped carrying it and I missed quite a few issues, and then I moved to Norman and am buying it from a comic book store here."
Name: Sean (Captain Plastic)

Spirit Animal: "Whatever it may be, it's currently irritated with my inability to link to an activity/goal that is really suited to my personal qualities."

"I was first introduced to The Maxx when Image first came into existence. I was then an avid Marvel collector and was anxious to grab anything this new comic company had to offer. I still own 8 copies of Darker Image #1 plus The Maxx #1 Glow-in-the-Dark and **almost** every issue from #1-35. I'm sorry to say I have yet to pick up the Friends of Maxx series. Anyway ... The Maxx is the **only** comic I still collect and I plan to be around for a while."
