Well, those of you who were hoping for a Disney’s Hercules reference have got what you wanted! And it was a song sung by a corn-dog selling fairy.
Gosh, this one was a doozie. After completely finishing an almost totally different comic, I realized that I wasn’t happy with it and ended up redoing the whole thing. Thanks to my girlfriend for being my co-writer with this one, I was almost ready to throw the whole concept out before she helped salvage it.
Some of you may be weirded out by seeing actual feelings in your Legend of Maxx comics, but the truth is that I don’t think I could make a comic that remained perpetually nonsensical and unfeeling, and I don’t think I’d want to anyways. Humor will always be at the core of Legend of Maxx, but– as you’ve probably seen before– I also want to incorporate some slightly less goofy story and character development elements as the plot marches on. So to those of you who like this stuff: don’t worry, there’ll be more of it. And to those of you who don’t: don’t worry, this isn’t going to become a drama comic from here on out.
Well that was a really long blog post, but I have one more thing to go over before I bow out: episode 1 of the fan-made Legend of Maxx video series has dropped, so head on over to check it out!
And with that… it’s very late. See you Wednesday, folks!
