* AbortedArc: Towards the end of the comic's run, a number of side stories began to be told, including one about Glory and another that featured Mickey and Dude from the ''Friends of Maxx'' spinoff. Both of these ended on a cliffhanger, and Kieth chose to end the comic rather than resolve either of them.

* {{Deconstruction}}: The comics and the animated series often deconstruct many superhero related tropes, such as TheCowl and WorkingClassHero (The Maxx is even referred as such by one kid in the sixth episode of the series): Not only The Maxx constantly fails to save people from Mr. Gone, his vigilante actions only cause him to end in jail, forcing July to bail him out. Ultimately, most of the actions done by the main character as the superhero fail to have the same effect they would have in a more conventional comic book.

Added DiffLines:

* WillNotBeAVictim: Julie takes this attitude as a way of coping with her traumas, holding that people have no one to blame but themselves for their suffering. It makes her a poor social worker, as she has nothing but contempt for most of her clients, and she cannot sustain a healthy relationship with anyone, including [[spoiler: her own son.]]

*NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished: Most of the time, the efforts done by The Maxx to protect the people from the city only cause him to end in jail.

Sam Kieth's very strange [[TheNineties 1990s]] series from ImageComics lasted for 35 issues (March, 1993-February, 1998). In 1995 it was adapted into a short and generally very faithful animated series on Creator/{{MTV}}.

->''And me? Old Mr. Gone? Only ''I'' can see that the secret which unites them could destroy them. I could be helpful... Bah, screw it. I think I'll have some fun with them first. [[EvilLaugh Mwa-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-hah!]]!"''

As the story goes on, the role of protagonist shifts from the Maxx to Julie to [[spoiler:Mr. Gone's daughter]] Sarah James, who was introduced early in the storyline... but all the characters are ultimately part of the same story.

* AdaptationDecay: The setting was licensed for a module for the obscure ''Heroes & Heroines'' RPG. It included none of the psychodrama of the comic, and was instead just a standard good vs. evil story of the player as the Maxx trying to save Julie from Mr. Gone, before he sacrificed her to become the ruling wizard of a mystical fortress in the Outback.
