Maximo: Beauty Is Only Sword Deep


Dreamwave Previews the First Maximo Comic

November 2003 –

Maximo…the two-fisted, sword slashing warrior from the wildly successful Capcom video game comes to life in the printed pages of comics by Dreamwave Productions. Beau Smith, writer of the up and coming Capcom Video game Maximo II, writes this series. Maximo finds himself once again called on to save a kingdom from the clutches of evil. This time evil comes in the form of Skabb and his legion of decaying demons of death known as The Rot. This comic brings all the action of the video game and gives the readers an extra layer to the story of Maximo!


Maximo is a perfect tie in for new non-traditional comic book readers. It will appeal to those that love comic books, video games, as well as role-playing games. People that enjoy films like Lord of the Rings, Reign of Fire, Jackie Chan, and Indiana Jones will also be very pleased with Maximo.

Check out the preview pages of this all-new comic by writer Beau Smith (and penciller Alan Wang (TRANSFORMERS: GENERATION ONE, ARMADA and Darkminds). Wang shares: “Maximo was such an amazing game and I’m really excited to have this oppurtunity to be the first to translate Capcom’s infamous Maximo franchise into a comic book. With Beau Smith at the helm, and Maximo 2 just around the corner, this is going to be a very exciting yeah for all of us here at Dreamwave and Capcom. Maximo, Beauty is only sword deep…”
