Tony Millionaire’s Sock Monkey is one of the great all-ages comics properties of the new millennium, spawning plush dolls, TV appearances, lunch boxes, Zippo lighters and more. Now, for the first time, all twelve of multiple Eisner Award-winner Tony Millionaire’s acclaimed Sock Monkey all-ages comic books (1998-2007, originally published by Dark Horse Comics) are collected under one cover, as well as the full-color graphic novella “Uncle Gabby” (2004) and the full-color illustrated storybook, “The Glass Doorknob” (2002), ready to be devoured by a new generation of young readers. 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. The book also includes the only full-length Sock Monkey graphic novel, “The Inches Incident.” Inches the doll was the cutest in the whole house and loved by everyone. Then one day... Inches turned EVIL! What will Mr. Crow and Uncle Gabby do? Beloved by adults and children, Sock Monkey harkens back to a time when comics actually were for kids.
“For all its laugh-out-loud edginess, the lovingly illustrated, Victorian-era antics of Millionaire’s protagonist playthings are always moving, often sentimental and never forced. The effect makes the work a sort of spiritual successor to Calvin and Hobbes, a tribute to both the keen light of imagination and to its cloudiest corners.” — Aaron Ragan-Fore - Eugene Weekly
“Containing more than ten years of Sock Monkey and Mr. Crow adventures, Millionaire’s Sock Monkey Treasury is a must-have for any fan. It’s a fantastic look at Millionaire’s style evolving over the years, with finely detailed art and coloring. The stories are entertaining as they are macabre, and Uncle Gabby and Mr. Crow are in top-form throughout. ... It’s wonderful to see all these stories together in one graphic novel.” — Cameron Hatheway - Bleeding Cool
