Volume six collects the Friends of Maxx miniseries. The first issue tells the story of Dude and Mickey's relationship woes while the next two tell about Ira's release from prison and his uncle trying to teach him how to be a man.
While I dug these stories, they just weren't the same. There was very little connection to the Maxx I know and love. Aside from that, the stories were really good. The relationships depicted within were very realistic and relatable, and, honestly, probably the best writing in the entire series. Just not what I was looking for.
