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.

From the Back Cover:

EAT MY SLIPPER DUST

If you want a shoulder to cry on, pull off to the side of the road.

And you thought you knew everything about her! Maxine: Yelling It Like It Is brings new meaning to the work "attitude." In this over-the-top collection of one-liners and all-new Maxine narratives, the lean, mean griping machine lambastes everything from fast food to feng shui. Maxine dishes out her philosophy to anyone who will listen: "My soul's had enough chicken soup. It wants some chocolate." She's an American icon for closet curmudgeons everywhere who are delighted to have this cranky old woman as their spokes person. Her Crabby Road comic panel is read every day by millions nationwide.
