Any comics fan watching MTV in the mid-1990s knew about "The Maxx." The 13-episode animated series based on Sam Kieth's surreal comic aired from April-June in 1995 during MTV's "Oddities" and presented a nearly word-for-word, panel-for-panel recreation of the first volume of the Image Comics series.
The MTV mothership recently made all of the episodes available to watch online, and I'd be lying if I said it didn't make for one heck of a distraction during my workday today. Here's the introductory episode of series, with the rest of the first season available in the MTV.com video archive.
Seriously, folks -- I'd almost forgotten how cool this series was. Do yourself a favor and watch 'em all again.
