If you'd like to order the new comic series from Max Bemis, Evil Empire, you can do so here.
Told through the perspective of an underground rapper named Reese, Max Bemis’ gripping story explores a scenario in which we watch modern society gradually evolve (or is it devolve?) into an evil empire.
Jason Tate on 01/05/14 - 11:14 AM
Max Bemis' next foray into comics will be Evil Empire, a 16-issue series from Boom! Studios launching on March 5.
The series finds a controversial rapper named Reese rising up to fight a growing menace that threatens to turn a world very much like our own into the type of oppressed society found in numerous sci-fi tales.

Max Bemis will make his debut with Marvel Comics, penning a story in November's A+X #14. This will be his first work for a major publisher. The artwork is below.
The story, which features a team-up between the Superior Spider-Man and Magneto, is described as Bemis as being "high concept."
"It can’t just be like, 'Let’s just take the Hulk and Spider-Man and put them against this particular bad guy and they find some creative way of beating him,'" Bemis said of the story. “How do you take a team-up and make it more of a psychological study than an action piece? All of the ideas I pitched had that sort of element to it."

Back when Andy Jackson of Hot Rod Circuit got married, Say Anything frontman Max Bemis gifted him with a cover of the band's "At Nature's Mercy." The parties have agreed to share the track with fans as a bonus track on the vinyl re-issue of Hot Rod Circuit's 2007 album, The Underground Is A Dying Breed. You can listen to the cover right now in the replies, and then order a copy of the record when they go on sale today at 1:30 from Enjoy the Ride Records.

Max Bemis' song shop has reopened for business, now with the option of having Sherri Dupree Bemis appear on your song.
Hey y'all... just wanted to say as we approach the 2013 opening of Song Shop that it has been a great honor being able to do this project for the past 4 or 5 years. As of now we have sent out about 3000 songs (crazzzzy) and I couldn't be more proud of the reactions we've been getting. It's beyond fulfilling and I am so thankful to get to know all of you so closely. Many of you guys know my wife Sherri and I are about to have our first daughter, Lucy- even though technically when you buy a song you're paying for a service, you're also giving us as a family a huge...

At last night's Rarities release show in Austin, Max Bemis announced a handful of updates. Max and Sherri's daughter Lucy will be born within the next few weeks or so. The Perma record is almost finished and will be released in fall. Lastly, Bemis has written half of the next Say Anything record, calling it his darkest, most twisted material. The band will hit the studio to record it after the Perma record is out.

Max Bemis is writing a comic called Polarity.
From the ArticleThe series also mirrors Bemis' own character arc that he lived: "finding out I have bipolar, dealing with the disease, being in denial that I had it, screwing off and then eventually taking responsibility of it," he says. "That was sort of a drama in and of itself, so in crafting this main character, my goal is to create the ultimate archetype of a guy like me dealing with this." [...] With each issue, Bemis is also including a free download of a new original song that, when collected the others, be part of a four-track EP soundtrack for the series.

Forbes sat down with Max Bemis to talk about his "song shop" project.
From the Article“I feel I’m getting to function almost as a pseudo therapist for kids,” he says. Song Shop allows Bemis to create a direct connection to the most passionate fans, those who would gladly spend a little more cash for a unique connection to their favorite act, and it’s a business endeavor that has a lot of spiritual gratification. While the fans certainly feel more connected to Bemis hearing him sing about whatever issues they were struggling with or random thought they wanted him to sing, it also helps Bemis connect to those who love his work: “I really write and play the songs imagining someone hearing...

Say Anything frontman Max Bemis wrote an essay on his definition of anarchy.
Creating Anarchy Is For The Greater GoodI am a fairly passive, overly analytical and neurotic Jewish guy with almost no set political beliefs or attachments and a seemingly tame lifestyle. I spend most of my time reading, playing music and hanging out with my wife. Gone are the days of wanton self-destruction and flagrant drug use. Thankfully, I've pulled myself out of a couple of pretty Sid and Nancy-esque relationships and now rest comfortably in a loving, supportive one. I sit around and play with my dogs a lot and live in a very conservative, slow-paced town in Texas. So why is it that at this stage in my...

At this point, we've all decided to listen to Max Bemis through thick and thin, in sickness and in health. For nearly ten years, the Say Anything mastermind has won over fans through all kinds of sounds, and will do it again with the release of Anarchy, My Dear on March 13th via Equal Vision Records. I had the chance to chat with Max, where we talked about the new record, "Admit It Again," ...Is A Real Boy, Perma (his band with wife Sherri Dupree-Bemis), and the future in general. You can read the feature right here.
