Sam Kieth brings back The Maxx to face the Dark Knight

unnamed (10)

Happening soon, as an awesome dream come true for Batman fans who remember well The Maxx, from the classic comics and MTV animated series.

Now both will meet, as Batman / The Maxx: Arkham Dreams is set for comic stands, as a joint venture from IDW and DC.  The original creator of The Maxx and famed artist of many great comic stories, Sam Keith will return to tell this story through his unique visual art style and storytelling.

Batman / The Maxx: Arkham Dreams is set for a five-issue miniseries comics event. The first issue of Batman / The Maxx: Arkham Dreams will debut this September, with covers by Sam Kieth and Jim Lee.

“Doing a Batman and Maxx crossover is like a family reunion with my favorite brother and our really cool cousin,” says Sam Kieth. “You never want it to end… or at least I hope you won’t!”

When a devious new doctor at Arkham Asylum conducts unconventional forays into the human psyche, he kicks off a disastrous chain reaction by experimenting on Arkham’s newest patient: The Maxx! The city of Gotham soon begins to merge with the Outback, The Maxx’s psychedelic mental landscape. It’s up to Batman to save Gotham and all of reality… but only by joining The Maxx on a trip into the darkest depths imaginable: the twisted minds of Batman’s greatest enemies!

“It’s always a pleasure to work with Sam Kieth,” says editor Scott Dunbier. “He puts his heart and soul into his art, and gives you something truly unique in the process. We can’t wait for people to see this!”

Look for Batman / The Maxx: Arkham Dreams #1 in comic book stores everywhere, this September.
