One thing that stood out in this comic book were the millions of what can only be described as "mouth monsters". They had no eyes, and were basically just mouths with scrawny arms and legs attached. I remember tracing one of the mouth creatures. They were so cool looking to me, I just had to learn to draw them! If only drawings could be used in Google searches. The creatures looked something like this...
I remember the hero of the story fighting hundreds of these creatures at a time. The whole bizzare world was just covered in them. There's one large panel where the hero is looking out into a valley or desert or something and there are just millions of these creatures crawling everywhere. I do believe our hero sneaks around the home of a giant version of one of these mouth monsters. The giant's home was like any other, it had a kitchen, sofa, dressers, etc.
These mouth monsters inspired one of my own creations, a cute little man-eating plant.
Am I just crazy? Did such a comic exist? I may be doomed to never know.
Perhaps my vague descriptions have sparked one of your memories? Do you too have vague childhood memories of long lost mystery comics or toys?
Now that I know this comic is The Maxx, it's very clear that this childhood made-up superhero I call "Mayhem" was clearly inspired by The Maxx!
