One of the many cool things about Mighty Max was that each playset had a comic dramatizing the action on the back of the card. This very cool Flickr group has preserved most of these in digital form, as has the awesome French Mighty Max wiki. I’m posting them here partly to help preserve them (in case one of our sites goes offline someday), and partly because it’s a pain in the ass not being able to view all of these in one place.
Unfortunately, while the wiki does have almost all of the comics, it failed to keep the “The Story So Far” text box preceding each, which provided the context for the adventure. So the comics feel more like non-sequiturs than they normally would.

HORROR HEAD COMICS
BATTLE MAX COMICS
Sadly it seems no one preserved the comics from the big playsets. Shame.
Thanks for sharing, loved the toys. Got soo many and still have some :)
I’d love to see the collection if you have an online photo gallery.
Hi Mike, I’ve just found the packaging for the large playsets, all but the first one (Skull Mountain) I can take some photos and email them over if you like? I don’t have a scanner at home I’m afraid.
I have a feeling I also have some of the small set backing too.
Sure! You can send ’em in a zip file to my yahoo email and if they look good I’d love to post ’em on the site.
I’ve sent a Dropbox link to the images. They’re not amazing quality, but I just wanted to show what I had and then I will get scans at work of the ones you’d like. Cheers, Edd
I used to have the comic for Fire Alien, the recolor of Ice Alien.
How much different was it from the Ice Alien comic?
Hi! I am making a research? Do you know the name of the comic book artists of those short comics? Thanks in advance
You’d have to join the Mighty Max Archives and ask someone there. That’s a bit too obscure even for me!
is there a community which does discussion/trades about mighty max?
I think the Mighty Max Archive is the only one outside of Facebook. The only Max group I’ve seen on facebook is Tales from the Skull Mountain.
Fantastic to read these again after more than two decades! I used to keep all these cards until my parents threw them out, so I remember them quite well. Wonderful work, thank you!
i shoulda kept my packaging as well…
