Maximortal v. 1 by Rick Veitch, $20. Color cover, black and white interiors, 176 pages. Published by King Hell

Rick Veitch needs no introduction to readers of this site, he's been making beautiful comics for as long as I've been alive, at all corners of the industry. I've always appreciated how solid his cartooning is, nothing ever out of place, organic organization. This book collects volume 1 of Veitch's essential MAXIMORTAL saga. The material collected here was serialized in the 90s, and the story continues today in Veitch's new BOY MAXIMORTAL series, also available in our store.
