(Also, check out the dates on these drawings. Creative work takes a LONG time.)
@JoshuaACNewman That film was in development for a long, long time. One delay after another, I recall. There was even a time when Mel Gibson was going to play Max before another delay caused him to bail.
@WardenRPG no shit.
One of those drawings is from 1997.
@JoshuaACNewman Wow! And George Miller used all that time to perfect the script bit by bit by bit.
@WardenRPG Man. He sure did. And it so was intensely topical when it came out.
