The latest collection of Millionaire’s weekly comics strip features the high-sea adventures of an inebriate crow, a stuffed monkey, and many others.
Tony Millionaire’s Maakies is one of the longest-running and most decorated weekly comic strips in America. Drinky Crow Drinks Again collects more than 200 Maakies 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 vaudeville-style humor and a breathtaking line that harkens 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).
