#85 – Reach

The trees in my childhood neighborhood were sprinkled with kites and frisbees and shoes and all sorts of toys. Many of them stuck up there by accident. Some of them thrown in frustration. A good many of them were there in a failed rescue mission to get one of the other toys unstuck. They became little clusters of bright plastic shapes. Just hanging out and enjoying the view as the sun gradually removed all of their color.

Today’s Max is in between yawns.

*Note: When this strip went up on April 1st the comments below were moderated to hold back any mention of the joke. That’s why you’ll see so many people think they are the first one to point out it was April Fool’s day.

    Isn’t this Maximumble, not Biff?

    1. Asuyuka says:

      April Fools =P

    2. Bait says:

      No, this is Biff.

    3. Shadowlord9k says:

      Check your calendar.

    4. Kree says:

      You must be mistaken, this is Biffimumble! 😛

    5. Sven says:

      Check the date. 😛

    6. Kbman says:

      You’ve just figured out Blue’s Clues!

    7. Richard says:

      Think of the date, Michael.

    8. ZeoViolet says:

      Think carefully, Michael. What’s today?

    9. Darren says:

      April 1st 🙂

    10. Mystery Fish says:

      It certainly is. But, isn’t this April 1st? 😉

  3. Tekaramity says:

    Chris is veeery sneaky when he hides comments like this! >=(

  4. Chuck says:

    Michael, do you know what day it is?

  5. BiggerJ says:

    Simple logic dictates that if you want Maximumble, go to where Biff should be.

  6. ato784 says:

    Happy April Fools day!

  7. Kitkun says:

    It’s that time of year again…

  8. Haggis says:

    Protip Check the date.

  9. Loraxxe says:

    No, it’s April 1, is what it is. Chris always jokes around. Many goats are usually gotten, because he blocks revealing comments for a day. Maybe this one too, we’ll see.

  10. Gwid says:

    So there WILL be April Fools Maxees (I was going to leave it as Maxis, but that’s kind of already taken. So Maxees it is).


  11. BlueKitsune says:

    This reminded me of Kleyman from The Neverhood!

  12. Drew says:

    No Michael, he’s combining the two comics into one, to be posted here. Did you miss the blog post?

  13. -2! says:

    Happy today again!

  14. Stranger says:

    Check the date, dude.

  15. -2! says:

    Wow, so much detail! And colour two. This is really nice! My only quarrel is what is with the eyebrows?

    1. AdmiralMemo says:

      It’s April Fool’s so Chris swapped the Maximumble and Book of Biff strips.

      1. -2! says:

        I knew that. See my comment I previously posted saying “Happy today again!” I enjoy joining in the fun and faking the fact that I was tricked, so in fact I April fooled you! 😀

        Also Book of Biff is my favourite comic, and I have no quarrel with the eyebrows.

  16. Arjan says:

    @ Michael, check today’s date 😉

  17. zeldadude says:

    Yes. Yes it is. But hey, he was probably trying something, I thought the same thing when I saw biff.

  18. Carrie says:

    Cool! A multi-panel biff comic! Didn’t think I’d ever see one of those 🙂

  19. Cinematic says:

    Clever Chris, are we to expect a crossover in the future where Biff and Max meet?

  20. Tal says:


    of April that is.

  21. ... says:

    Michael… consider what day it is.

  22. MoonHitler says:

    I’m just happy his eyes aren’t visible. That was creepy.

  23. VoodooChicken says:

    I had so much crap on our roof, including a library book my mom checked out for my baby brother! That thing stayed up there for months before I admitted what I did.

    Me and a few friends used to play with an Aerobee that would consistently find the only tree in 500 yards of open field. So we started carrying these toys called Ugly Balls which were balls with ugly faces on them. They were cheap and so we didn’t mind losing them if they got stuck in the tree trying to get the Aerobee out. Of course since we wouldn’t mind losing them, they never got stuck in the tree.

    He probably got the stretching ability from the new google motion feature.

  26. Megafan says:

    LOL I love how they are switched today 🙂

  27. RFor Redonk says:

    HOLY MOLY! A multi-panel Biff strip!

    I was out with a friend watching him fly his model airplane, and it got stuck in a tree. He really wanted to get it out because a) It’s an expensive model airplane. b) As soon as the remote is shut off, it starts incessently beeping (meant so if it got lost in tall grass it’d be easy to find.) We threw some metal blocks at it — no good. We tied string to it to try to “hook” it — actually got some string around it, it shifted a little bit but no good. Finally, he got a pellet gun and we started taking turns firing at it (making sure there was nothing past the tree to hit). One pellet did go through the wing, but that didn’t dislodge it either! He pre-apologized to the neighbors since it was going to be beeping for at least a day. I bet it’s still up there.
