Issue 54 – The Maxx: Tricking 8-Year Old Kids Into Feminism Since 1993

The Maxx - He's like Purple Hulk but... Homeless?
The Maxx – He sure looks deep and nuanced, right?

On this episode, the gang reads the first four issues of The Maxx. He looks like a weird, purple Hulk with an overbite, but he’s a lot deeper than that! We swear. Why won’t you believe us?!?

Read along: The Maxx Vol 1

After reading Darryl’s beloved Death’s Head 2 last time, we dip back into Sly’s childhood for The Maxx. Even though it seems like a goofy dystopia, this book apparently introduced Sly to feminism. Does it hold up? Or is our protagonist just a damn snowflake, polluted by our liberal SJW culture? Darryl is really unconvinced if this book is a subversion of an inversion. Phil actually likes a book we picked for the show? Ryan loves this book even though he missed pretty much the whole plot. And is that… Sly apologizing for being salty? It can’t be!


Content Warning: This book heavily features sexual violence against women.

Theme: Max Power From The Simpsons
