Tony Millionaire’s Maakies is one of the longest-running and most decorated weekly comic strips in America, garnering multiple Harvey and Eisner Awards since it debuted in 1994. Drinky Crow Drinks Again is the followup to Green Eggs and Maakies, and collects over 200 strips from the past half-decade for the very first time! Featuring the comical high-seas adventures of a booze-soaked corvid (they don’t call him “Drinky” Crow for nothin’) and his equally-soused simian pal (Uncle Gabby), Maakies blends vaudevillestyle humor and a breathtaking line that hearkens back to the glory days of the American comic strip. Maakies suggests a contemporary collaboration between E.C. Segar, creator of Popeye, and seafaring novelist Patrick O’Brian (Master and Commander). Millionaire has won multiple Harvey and Eisner Awards and is also the creator of the popular Sock Monkey and Billy Hazelnuts books.

My eyes get lost in the beauty of Tony Millionaire's drawings, his humor cuts me apart. It's a cool feeling, funny beauty, it's my favorite feeling. Tony Millionaire is funny and pretty. MAAKIES is booze for the soul.  Pendleton Ward

“Even when Millionaire draws a psychiatrist blowing his brains out, he renders the man’s suit with gorgeous linework. He takes a great deal of care in the presentation of sophomoric and stupid humor.” — Paste Magazine

The new book includes more than 200 strips from the past five years collected for the first time, all ready to have you ignoring life-saving alarms because you're laughing too hard. Just make sure to read it in a safe environment, just in case.” — Hollywood Reporter

“Millionaire’s commanding illustrative skills are put to full effect here on seascapes portraying billowing waves and majestic ships as well as lushly rendered depictions of flora, fauna, and architecture. That Maakies has sustained this level of inspired foolery for more than two decades is a testimony to the boundless extent of Millionaire’s vast creativity and benign depravity.” — Booklist
