Drinky Crow may be the drunken star of the weekly comic strip Maakies, but more often than not, he plays straight man to the hapless ape, Uncle Gabby. Here is the newest collection of Tony Millionaire's strip, never before published in book form. The suicide jokes may come less frequently than in earlier years, but the comedy and superb drawing style are at their peak, as is the volume of triple-X cartoon booze consumed. Catch the new animated The Drinky Crow Show on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim starring the voices of Billy West, Dave Herman, Becky Thyre, and Tom "Spongebob" Kenny.
Maakies features the comical adventures of a drunken crow on the high seas, blending vaudeville-style humor and a breathtaking line that harkens back to the glory days of the American comic strip. Designed by publishing's foremost graphic designer, Chip Kidd, Maakies with the Wrinkled Knees features over two years of strips in a beautiful, deluxe, landscape hardcover format that complements the strip's elegant and classical style.
“Sick humor and peerless draftsmanship.” — Ray Olson - Booklist
“You can lose yourself in Millionaire’s ornate black-and-white world, one that draws on the clam shacks, widow’s walks, and majestic three-masted schooners of his boyhood Gloucester home.” — Mike Miliard - The Boston Phoenix
“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
