Tony Millionaire's Maakies is one of the best and most popular weekly comic strips in America, running in over a dozen of the largest U.S. weekly newspapers including The Village Voice, L.A Weekly, Chicago Reader, 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, Der Struwwelmaakies is our fourth collection and features over two years' worth of Maakies in a beautiful, deluxe, landscape hardcover format that complements the strip's elegant and classical style. Reading Maakies is like reading a beautifully illustrated diary. If you pay attention you can watch the evolution of the cartoonist as he grows from a drunken penniless ne'er-do-well to a drunken million-dollar-less som'tim's-do-well. Drinky Crow, as always, steals the show.
"Millionaire is a great master of the old-time free-wheeling comic strip, and this work takes full advantage of every last bit of the medium. Transporting, irreverent and unique, all beautifully drawn." – Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"Buy this damned collection, a priceless 91-strip artifact smartly designed by Chip Kidd: it's a gem of outrage in a sea of vacuous noise." – Rain Taxi
