Each absorbing chapter in Maxon: Art Out of Chaos recounts Maxon's agonizing journey to mature into a fiercely independent innovator whose are and writings are as provocative and colorful as they are complex and imaginative.

Excerpts from Maxon's writings, anecdotes from his brother R. Crumb, plus a gallery of Maxon's stunning artworks crown an inspiring story of a man who candidly bares his world to us through ink, oil, metal, word, and word.
