DC & HBO Max unveil digital comic series
June 16, 2020
Three new comic book superheroes feature in a new original digital comic book series titled To The Max, published by DC, in collaboration with HBO Max.
To The Max feature stories about ordinary people achieving their maximum potential when they transform into extraordinary superheroes with the help of another new character, Max the dog.
These new comics also celebrate the recent launch of the new HBO Max and are full of Easter Eggs and nods to much of the 10,000 hours of content currently available on the streaming platform such as Friends, Game of Thrones, The Big Bang Theory, Scooby-Doo and more.
Free to download starting, this initial launch of the digital comic includes three 8-page chapters featuring everyday people, Hector, Brian and Olivia (‘HBO’), who meet Max the dog, gain access to different superpowers and become able to teleport, shape shift, fly and save lives around the world.
“We are thrilled to partner with the amazing team at DC to present this creative, personification of HBO Max as a team of powerful comic book superheroes,” said Robert Greenblatt, Chairman, Warner Media Entertainment and Direct-To-Consumer. “These fun, original stories depict a diverse range of ordinary individuals who are symbolic of the depth and breadth of programming that is available on the platform, driving home the message that HBO Max has something for everyone.”
“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!”
