I kinda like how quiet and reflective this cover is. The original version was a typical action pose.
But I like this introverted cover now better.
Though Maxx has humor and nonsense, there are some deeper issues in there. Though he's a grown homeless man, the Maxx reminds me of how withdrawn we all feel during adolescence, crap happens, and think were crazy, told we'll grow out of it once were adults.
In the series, i wanted to validate Maxx neurosis, in effect, say:
" Yes Maxx, it's true, things may seem crazy . . . but the pain was real. "
