On one level Maximortal is straight up satire of Superman's fictional and real lives. The Maximortal arrives on Earth as a baby, is discovered by two kindly farmers and (as a baby with god-like powers) promptly kills several hundred people before being imprisoned by the army/5(9).

THE MAXIMORTAL is not your typical comic book. This is a thought-provoking dreamlike tour de force in comics format. The ideas and themes Rick explores are many: super heroic figures, collective thought, war, power, the publishing industry, Hollywood, the mistreatment of comics creators and much much more.5/5(3).

"The Maximortal" though is more than that, it is many things at once: a thinly-veiled story of how Superman's creators Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster get screwed by a publisher/mogul similar to Walt Disney by owning the rights to their works and getting filthy rich off it; it is a pointed satire featuring Truman, Oppenheimer, and the Manhattan/5(22).

Take The Maximortal, which like Crypto Zoo is published by Veitch’s own King Hell Press. A Nietzschean fable about the dark societal impetus of the Superman (here named “True-Man”), the book deftly weaves together the splitting of the atom, the early history of superhero comics, and a vision of what would have happened if a super-powered being actually appeared on this earth.

The Maximortal arrives on Earth as a baby, is discovered by two kindly farmers and (as a baby with god-like powers) promptly kills several hundred people before being imprisoned by the army.

Meanwhile an unscrupulous publisher steals the character True Man from two struggling cartoonists and proceeds to make millions from their ideas while they live in poverty/5(8).

Publish your book with B&: Boy Maximortal continues the story of True-Man, now a teenager hiding from an increasingly desperate military while trying to come to grips with powers far beyond those of normal men, all played against a backdrop of the sleazy underworld of comic book publishing/5(22).

The Maximortal is clearly rooted in the comics of the golden age and his representations and particularly his painstaking inking reflects this heritage. Moreover, Veitch employs a variety of inking styles in order to reflect shifts in tone and narrative, from the fine, clearly delineated lines of Sidney Wallace's studio and offices, to the impressionistic brushwork of the book's occasional fiery infernos.

The Maximortal soars both as a heady exploration of how the genre has continued to swing back and forth along the continuum of shit and sublime, and a damning testament to how the comics business. Equal parts heart-wrenching and horrifying, this superhero deconstruction is both a gripping tale for graphic novel enthusiasts and a perfect starting point for those new to the medium.

Veitch. The Maximortal. [Rick Veitch] -- "Super weirdness. A strangely compelling parable about the unknowable source of creative thought moving violently through the inventors of our modern myths."--Tucson Weekly. The Maximortal arrives on Earth as a baby, is discovered by two kindly farmers and (as a baby with god-like powers) promptly kills several hundred people before being imprisoned by the army.

Meanwhile an unscrupulous publisher steals the character True Man from two struggling cartoonists and proceeds to make millions from their ideas while they live in poverty/5.

This edit will also create new pages on Comic Vine for: Beware, you are proposing to add brand new pages to the wiki along with your edits. Make sure this is what you intended. THE MAXIMORTAL is Veitch's deconstruction of the superhero, and it's an uncomfortable look and not for the younger audiences.

If you're expecting standard superhero stuff, this is the wrong trade paperback, brother/5(3). Maximortal is the ultimate Superman apocrypha.

It's a book that deals with fiction as reality. It covers the Cold War, the dropping of the atomic bomb, and even tells the story of Siegel and. Description.

Also includes an expanded and updated “Curse of the Superman” essay by Veitch. This is the question that lies at the heart of Drew Magarys debut novel, The Postmortal. Told through what is essentially a series of electronic diary entries written by a man named John Farrell, The Postmortal chronicles the near-future where a cure for aging has been discovered and humanity has taken its first tentative steps toward immortality/5.

Far from resting on his Laureate, Veitch is still making lots of comics, including a new graphic novel, Boy Maximortal Book 2, available now on Amazon. According to the blurb: According to the blurb: The startling saga of young True-Man accelerates faster than a speeding : Heidi Macdonald.

The Maximortal by Rick Veitch Book Resume: Seven years before The Amazing Adventures of Kavelier and Clay, Rick Veitch married the larcenous history of the comics business to the outrageous themes and characters of his infamous Brat Pack universe, creating one of the most startling and uncompromising visions of the super-hero archetype ever put to paper.

The One, The Maximortal, Brat Pack, Boy Maximortal: Number One, and Boy Maximortal: Number Two. "The book may not be for everyone, but for readers who might find themselves getting a little overstuffed by the same-old same-old in comics, THE MAXIMORTAL is the perfect antidote." THE MAXIMORTAL tells the tale of an idea so perfectly suited to an age that it makes itself manifest in reality.

The Maximortal is a being from outside our time and space who takes on the persona of True Man, a comic book hero with immense powers that he tries to use for good. This issue picks up his story in the s when he has taken on a new boyish body.
