It’s a bird. It’s a plane. It’s HBO Max?
Three new comic book superheroes are taking it to the “max” in the brand-new original digital comic book series titled: To The Max. The comics are a partnership between DC and HBO Max.
The three characters are everyday people who are transformed into superheros by a special dog named, of course, Max.
To The Max: Hector – When a schoolteacher finds a mysterious device it sends him flying into an incredible outer-space rescue mission. Cover art by Jim Lee, penciled by Scot Eaton and written by Ivan Cohen.
To The Max: Brian – A scuba instructor is transformed into a superhero who must save innocent people from a deadly storm in Singapore. Cover art by Jorge Jimenez, penciled by Hendry Prasetya, and written by Ivan Cohen.
To The Max: Olivia – A down-on-her-luck standup comic is all that stands between her audience and gun-toting criminals who plan to rob a Las Vegas casino. Cover art by Amanda Conner, penciled by Laura Braga and written by Ivan Cohen.
The comics are chock-full of easter eggs to much of content streaming on HBO Max such as Friends, HBO’s Game of Thrones, The Big Bang Theory, HBO’s Sex and the City, Scooby-Doo and more.
“DC and HBO Max both share in the belief that great storytelling is one of the most powerful ways to engage and connect with people,” said DC Chief Creative Officer and Publisher Jim Lee. “We are excited to share these new and original stories of Hector, Brian, Olivia and Max with the DC fans, and all fans of great entertainment content. These are superhero stories at their core, but they are also a pop culture scavenger hunt for the most media savvy!”
To The Max digital comics are available for free with participating digital retailers, including DC UNIVERSE, DCComics.com, Apple iBookstore, Google Play Store, Kindle, Nook, Hoopla, Overdrive and in the DC Comics app, ComiXology app and Madefire app for iOS and Android.
