Maxine is a bona fide phenomenon. Her likeness graces mugs, calendars, T-shirts, collectibles, and even a 2.5-foot doll. She's been hailed by the press as the "Mother Lode of laughs" ( People magazine) and "The queen of outrageous" ( McCall's ). Maxine is fresh, funny, odd, and ever-so-deliciously twisted. Maxine's creator, artist John Wagner, based part of his character's tell-it-like-it-is persona on his grandmother, mother, and maiden aunts. "She's been a voice for a silent group of women that are glad that this cranky old woman is finally saying what she wants."

The voice of Maxine comes out as: "My soul's had enough chicken soup. It wants some chocolate." "My idea of feng shui is to have them arrange the pepperoni in a circle on my pizza." "I may be old, but people who look like me always win the lottery." Maxine: Yelling It Like It Is includes all-new, never-before-published material, all in full-color.
