200px-The Maxx (TV series)


The comic book series was adapted into an animated series as part of the MTV program Oddities. It covered Darker Image #1, The Maxx #1/2, and issues #1-11 of the regular series, depicting the introduction of Julie, the original Maxx, Mr. Gone, and later, Sarah. The series included few of the revelations of the characters' origins, however, and did not describe the interconnections between them.

The animation frequently changes styles. In one scene, characters may be rendered in detail but in the next, they may be simplified and cartoonish. Often this is done to show a change in perspective. CGI and even live-action are sometimes integrated in with the hand-drawn animation. Critics such as Richard Matthes have noted how much of the animation is based directly on panels from the comic.

The show was released once on VHS, though missing an episode, then later in 2009 it became available to stream on though only to American audiences. On December 17, 2009, The Maxx became available on DVD exclusively through's CreateSpace "Manufacture-on-Demand" program which contains every episode of the television show and also includes audio commentary on each episode plus interviews with Creator Sam Kieth & Director Gregg Vanzo. Full episodes of the entire season now stream for free on MTV's Liquid TV reboot
