Sock Monkey: Into the Deep Woods by Matt Danner and Tony Millionaire - Inside Page

To see and hold a physical copy of Tony Millionaire and Matt Danner's upcoming Sock Monkey book, Sock Monkey: Into the Deep Woods is to harken back to a childhood spent surrounded by stacks of hardbound, lovingly-put together storybooks filled with lushly drawn black and white ink etchings.

Here is our first look at this beautiful hardcover, a fresh advance copy sent from the printer. The large print interspersed with beautiful, detailed black and white illustrations will capture the imaginations of kids, making this a solid page-turner as well as a fun book to read aloud this fall! You can pre-order the book now for a late October delivery.

Sock Monkey: Into the Deep Woods by Matt Danner and Tony Millionaire - Excerpt
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under Tony MillionairepreviewsMatt DannerComing Attractions 19 Sep 2014 12:30 PM

In these first nine pages of Tony Millionaire and Matt Danner's upcoming Sock Monkey book, Sock Monkey: Into the Deep Woods, Uncle Gabby appears to be dreaming about how he came to be a sock monkey living in the house of Ann-Louise. In a shifting dreamscape perspective, he gooes from a monkey with a toothache, to a fallen monkey's tooth next to an orchid, to a freshly-sewn sock monkey with a hidden monkey's tooth embedded in its breast pocket, beginning to flicker to life.

You can download and read the whole 9-page, 1 MB excerpt here, and check out our book listing page for more previews and to pre-order your copy! Sock Monkey: Into the Deep Woods comes out in October.

2014 Labor Day Sale

As the leaves begin to turn shades of red and orange (or fall straight off and green depending on where you live), backpacks are dusted off in preparation for a new load of textbooks, and we move into fall, we figure you could use some cause for celebration. How about our Labor Day/Back-To-School Sale? We've got great titles of all-ages, young-adult, and non-fiction titles at a whopping 40% Off from Saturday, August 30th through Monday, September 1st!

Batter Up, Charlie Brown! by Charles M. Schulz Chocolate Cheeks by Steven Weissman 21

For your wee ones, how about our gift-sized, baseball-themed Peanuts book, Batter Up, Charlie Brown? Or, for something a little cheekier, there's Steven Weissman's Chocolate Cheeks. For the baseball fans who want a bit more history mixed in, try 21: The Story of Roberto Clemente by Wilfred Santiago

Unlovable Unlovable 2 Caricature

School can be anything you make of it, especially you don't give a damn. For the guy or girl that knows everything, try Unlovable 1 and 2 by Esther Pearl Watson. She may only break wind and not hearts, but Tammy Pierce is unstoppable. For some short stories from all walks of life, ugly and less ugly, grab Daniel ClowesCaricature, often compared to to Nabokov for their complex naturalism and sense of humor.

Ghost World  Celebrated Summer Night Fisher
Is cutting class altogether a common memory for you? How about a classic Fantagraphics alternative comic, sure to win even the most jaded of hearts: Daniel ClowesGhost World (now in its 20th printing) is for you. Already have it? Try the male version of Ghost World, Celebrated Summer by Charles Forsman, that came out in 2014. Night Fisher by R. Kikuo Johnson also follows the teenage trail of growing up and growing apart.

Giraffes in my Hair Mess Everything The Squirrel Mother
Cutting class was too weak? You just dropped out all together? Damn, you might enjoy Giraffes in My Hair, a Jack Kerouac-style story lived by Bruce Paley and drawn by his partner, Carol Swain, all about the summer of '67. On the cusp of flunking out with a drug habit, A Mess of Everything by Miss Lasko-Gross, is an intense and raw look at her own high-school experience. If you're looking for more personal and semi-autobiographical comic stories look no further than The Squirrel Mother by Megan Kelso. It also contains stories about the idea of America and American history, such as a trilogy of short pieces about Alexander Hamilton.

Rebel Visions Pretty in Ink Daniel Clowes Reader
If history is your school-time jam, then grab a copy of Rebel Visions by Patrick Rosenkranz, a history of the alternative cartoonists. Want something even more focused?  A history of women cartoonist will suit you just fine in Pretty In Ink: North American Women Cartoonists 1896-2013 by Trina Robbins. Or the Daniel Clowes Reader, featuring most of Clowes' work and papers on the overriding motifs and themes.  

Black Images in the Comics  American
Consider some new books about comics as an assignment for a graded discussion. Black Images in the Comics by Fredrik Strömberg walks through comics, old and new, to enlighten the audience about the hideous caricatures racism produces so that we may never stray there again. Best American Comics Criticism compiled by Ben Schwartz features the best essays on comics from Chris Ware on Rodolphe Töpffer, Dan Clowes on Mad's Will Elder, The Daily Show's John Hodgman on Jack Kirby and more!

Clouds above Barnaby 1 Sock Monkey Treasury

For those who wish to rise above it all and forget that school ever existed, The Clouds Above is an all-ages full-color romp with a boy and his cat by Jordan Crane. Meanwhile, Barnaby by Crockett Johnson plays with some imaginary creatures including his fairy godfather. Or for something that feels a bit older, more Victorian The Sock Monkey Treasury by Tony Millionaire is for you.

The Last Rose of Summer 
Finally a little prose by Monte Schulz, the novel The Last Rose of Summer. With the Great Depression looming, three strong-minded women related by marriage form an uneasy household in a Southern town.

So clean up on some comics to read while the kids are out at school or to distract you from the textbooks you SHOULD be reading.

Thursday, September 4th

The beautiful people at the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library and Museum are hosting a lovely evening with the mad Maakies creator, Tony Millionaire. Beginning at 7 pm in the Jean and Charles Schulz Lecture Hall on the Ohio State University campus. Tony will be in conversation with the library's engagement coordinator, Caitlin McGurk, discussing the only two things worth discussing, life, and cartooning.

Millionaire's breadth of work has spanned many years, through many mediums. From original syndicated title Maakies, to the well beloved Sock Monkey series, and the Cartoon Network Adult Swim show, "The Drinky Crow Show". The recently released Sock Monkey Treasury collects the wonderfully victorian-stylized adventures of Uncle Gabby and Mr. Crow in their first complete book.

Don't miss this chance to hear a unique journey, from a unique man, whose influence can be felt in almost all aspects of our culture. This event is also wonderfully FREE and OPEN to the public!

Panels
Saturday 1-2pm Tony Millionaire In Conversation With Caitlin McGurk (This panel is sponsored by Comix Revolution)

For twenty years, Special Guest Tony Millionaire has been making waves with the seasick adventures of characters Uncle Gabby the sock monkey and Mr. (Drinky) Crow. Millionaire's nostalgic comics Maakies and Sock Monkey defy era and expectation, at once awesomely intricate and terribly crude, sometimes best for the tots and at other times for the sloppiest of sailors. Join us in a conversation with Millionaire and Caitlin McGurk of the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum in an exploration of this pioneering cartoonist's career.

Sunday 1-2pm Seduction of the Innocent with Tony Millionaire, Liz Prince, and Tucker Stone.
 Moderated by Marnie Galloway (This panel is sponsored by First Aid Comics) 

Comics are still for kids?! While the comics medium has grown up in the eyes of the public, of course there are still creators making work for younger audiences. What is the inspiration for creating work for a younger age group, and how will authors stay connected to new generations who will be born in a world of digital entertainment? CAKE organizer and author of In the Sounds and Seas, Marnie Galloway will lead a panel discussion with the multi-faceted Special Guest Tony Millionaire (Sock Monkey), Liz Prince, author of the upcoming memoir for teens, Tomboy, and Tucker Stone representing Special Guest Nobrow Press.

Debuts:
Bomb Run• Bomb Run and Other Stories by John Severin, Harvey Kurtzman & Will Elder One of the most fruitful collaborations in the history of comics resulted in taut, gritty war stories. The team of Kurtzman and Severin was one of the most fruitful collaborations in the history of comics. Together with inker and friend Will Elder, whose own obsession for detail perfectly heightened the impact of every line, they produced 34 war stories in just under three years. This book includes: the Roman empire; the Revolutionary War; the American-Indian Wars; the Alamo; the Civil War; World War I (in the trenches and in the air); World War II (in the Pacific and in Europe, including the D-Day invasion); and the Korean War.

 

Twelve Gems• Twelve Gems by Lane Milburn omewhere in the outer cosmos, beyond reckoning or observation, the mysterious Dr. Z has enlisted three space heroes, to search the galaxy for the fabled Twelve Gems of Power: the hulking alien-brawn Furz; the deadly sabre-wielding Venus; and the soft-spoken canine technician, Dogstar. With wall-to-wall humor and action in Lane Milburn's debute graphic novel from Fantagraphics; this is one of the most action-packed and funny books of the year!

 

 

 

Amateurs

• The Amateurs by Conor Stechschulte Two butchers arrive at work to find their shop empty of meat and their minds empty of how to do their job. As customers arrive, events become increasingly disastrous. A surreal, debut graphic novella of horror and humor with one huge, hanging question. This often hilarious, enigmatic, and uncomfortable book establishes Stechschulte as an exciting new talent. 

 

 

 

 

So come one and come all! Say hello to Jacq Cohen, working the booth, and special guest Tony Millionaire! The beautiful CAKE banner at the top was made by Chicago's own Chicago's own, Carrie Vinarsky.
