The strip is about Maxâ€™s unbridled optimism, and his quest to be the next greatest thespian. He wears his heart on his sleeve for his self-proclaimed leading lady, Janet, and lords his â€˜plannedâ€™ status over his â€˜accidentalâ€™ older sister, Andromeda. His best friend is Klaus, when his ventriloquist doll, Curio, isnâ€™t around. You may notice Curio is based on Alexander from the Middle Ages.
How much has ‘Calvin & Hobbes’ influenced comic makers? Personally I could (and do) re-read alot of it!
This is how Max Overacts works – you want to re-read it, you can go back through the archives, laughing at the same jokes that made you laugh the first time. This is a webcomic with legs. The art is fun and bouncing and the writing is slick and makes you think as well as laugh!
