This book is out of print but is collected in its entirety in the omnibus volume Drinky Crow's Maakies Treasury.

Tony Millionaire's Maakies is one of the most popular weekly comic strips in America, running in over ten of the largest U.S. weekly newspapers, including the New York Press, New Times Los Angeles, and Seattle's The Stranger. Maakies features the comical adventures of a drunken crow on the high seas, blending vaudeville-style humor and a breathtaking line that harkens back to the glory days of the American comic strip. Designed by publishing's foremost graphic designer, Chip Kidd, The House at Maakies Corner features a year and a half's worth of Maakies over 96 pages, presented in a beautiful, deluxe hardcover oversized landscape format that complements the strip's elegant and classical style. Maakies suggests a contemporary collaboration between E.C. Segar, creator of Popeye, and seafaring novelist Patrick O'Brien (Millionaire is a tremendous fan of both). Millionaire has won multiple Harvey and Eisner Awards and Maakies has appeared as a series of animated segments on NBC's Saturday Night Live.

2003 Eisner Award WINNER: Best Writer/Artist — Humor

"Cartoonist Tony Millionaire's double-decker comic strip Maakies tosses all notions of highbrow and lowbrow into a blender and comes up with a nice fruity daquiri." – The Stranger

"Reading Tony Millionaire's darkly luscious comics is like losing that still unacquired bitter reality taste for a moment, or is it that it becomes so ripe and sharp in my mouth that my tongue swells up and I can't breathe?" – Andy Dick
