"Well, I've been with the Maxx since issue #1. Hadn't seen much of Mr. Kieth's work before that, but could recognize the big feet anywhere. I got most of the early Image #1 issues and sometimes they were awful, but in this case it paid off. I've been along for the ride ever since and have even gone out and obtained a Maxx action figure, bag o' Isz, and the Maxx bust to decorate the top of my desk. I've even got the Maxximum Sound cassette and the Glow in the Dark #1 that came along with it. Been a member of the Outback for about 7 months now (as of 4/21/98)."
