We do like Tony Millionaire's Maakies, yes we do.

For almost two decades, Tony Millionaire's Maakies has been 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. (It was also a short-lived Adult Swim animated series, The Drinky Crow Show, in 2008.)

As written and drawn by renaissance lush-cum-degenerate Millionaire, Maakies features the comical adventures of a drunken crow on the high seas, blending vaudeville-style humor (with plenty of bodily fluids and grievous bodily harm) and a breathtakingly beautiful line that harkens back to the glory days of the American comic strip. Green Eggs and Maakies is our eighth collection and features yet another two years' worth of Maakies in a beautiful, deluxe, landscape hardcover format that complements the strip’s elegant and classical style.

"In his surrealist impulse and draftsman’s brio, Millionaire is the closest thing we have to George Herriman of Krazy Kat." — John Hodgman, The New York Times

"Tricking brains and blowing minds has been Millionaire's modus operandi for years, which is why his existential antihero Drinky Crow spends a good amount of time trying to destroy his own." – Wired

Tony Millionaire on Funny or Die
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under Tony MillionaireThings to seetelevisionart 17 Jun 2013 10:59 AM

Maakies and Sock Monkey cartonist, Tony Millionaire, continues to be funnier than you on paper, in person and on film. This weekend Funny or Die released the video The Edge of Alligiance featuring Millionaire as George Washington on Mount Rushmore. If this made you spit out your cuppa joe, check out the older Fun With God where Millionaire plays who else but God? Keep your eyes peeled for our San Diego announcements so you know when Tony Millionaire will be signing books at our booth!

"Graphically elegant, done in a style reminiscent of early comics masters like Winsor McCay and Johnny Gruelle (who drew Raggedy Ann); the content, on the other hand, comes bubbling up from a part of the imagination that polite cartoonists lock away." – Charles McGrath, The New York Times

"So glad you and your family like Father Ted. You've already thanked me with the entertainment you've given me over the years. In fact, the show might not have been quite the same if I hadn't discovered Maakies all those years ago." – Graham Linehan

Maakies

Soar on drunken wings of joy! The new Maakies book is almost here! Green Eggs and Maakies is on the menu for June with another two years of strips by comics' biggest rapscallion, Tony Millionaire, presented once again in widescreen hardcover format. Drinky Crow, Uncle Gabby and the whole gang are back for more shipboard ultraviolence, more drunk driving calamities, more unnatural fornication, more vomit, more poetry, more dubious remedies, more putting things in their mouths that don't belong there, and more laughs, all in Tony's beautiful, peerless penwork.

Name a better comic strip this century. You can't do it! Dig into a steaming 12-page excerpt, and pre-order your copy right here.

Colbert and Tony Milionaire

Just a cool note that some of our artists' work has been appearing on The Colbert Report and The Daily Show. It's friggin' awesome because you (dear reader) have been with us for a long time, supporting the likes of Tony Millionaire or our political comics, this is Janet Hamlin's first book with us, and now they are showing up on your computer monitors or TVs or Google glass. Above, Steve Colbert ran a picture of Tony Millionaire's cover to the classic Moby Dick. Below is a clip of Jon Stewart on The Daily Show discussing Guantanamo Bay detainee, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, and his reaction to courtroom sketch of himself by Hamlin. Hamlin was the only media allowed to visually document the trials from 2006-early 2013.

 Janet Hamlin's work also appeared on The Colbert Report last month in a piece on censorship of the Guantanamo Bay courtroom trials with Stephen Colbert. You can pre-order her book Sketching Guantanamo from us today. Enjoy the twisted system that is American justice in action.

 One day we'll have some of our creators on there, showing off their amazing work and our sensuous book design.

Gangway for Tony Millionaire's Sock Monkey Treasury
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Tony MillionaireComing Attractions 1 Mar 2013 2:55 PM

Sock Monkey Treasury
(not final cover)

The Comics Reporter let the monkey out of the bag: in November 2013 we'll be publishing Sock Monkey Treasury: A "Tony Millionaire's Sock Monkey" Collection! This big fat hardcover collects all the Dark Horse Sock Monkey comics, the Uncle Gabby graphic novella, The Glass Doorknob storybook, and The Inches Incident graphic novel. These comics have been hailed as modern all-ages classics and we're delighted to bring them to you in a single, sure-to-be-gorgeous tome.

The precocious sock monkey Uncle Gabby and his innocent pal Mr. Crow are the heroes of this funny, unsettling and endearing collection. Follow them as they try to find a home for a shrunken head, play matchmakers between the bat in the doll's house and the mouse in the basement, unlock the mysteries of a glass doorknob, hunt salamanders, try to get to heaven, and much more.

"Like Joe Strummer, like Prince Buster and more grandly, John Wayne, Mark Twain and Lewis Carroll, some aliases simply announce the true personality and imaginative potential of the bearer. Tony Millionaire is no exception..." – Elvis Costello

"Tony Millionaire is making misanthropy feel good again." – Andy Richter

"Tony Millionaire is worth a thousand Tony Thousandaires." – Conan O'Brien

"I think Tony Millionaire can only do important things." – Dave Eggers

Designer Jacob Covey is putting the final touches on our newest Tony Millionaire strip collection Green Eggs and Maakies and it's off to the printer any moment now for release in May. Look at this gorgeous cover! Look at it! We like it on a boat. We like it with a goat.

And go ahead and pre-order a copy why don't you?
