Tony Millionaire comic
Oh My Glob! We've unleashed some of the industry's best cartoonists loose in the Land of Ooo to share their most algebraic stories in their own voices! The first issue is so math thanks to Katie Cook (My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic), Tony Millionaire (Sock Monkey), and Art Baltazar (Patrick the Wolf Boy). You're lumping welcome! This ongoing series will feature radical stories from Jeffrey Brown (Darth Vader and Son), Terry Moore (Strangers in Paradise), Kelly Thompson (Jem and the Holograms), Box Brown (Andre The Giant), and more!
Tony Millionaire’s Maakies is one of the longest-running and most decorated weekly comic strips in America, garnering multiple Harvey and Eisner Awards since it debuted in 1994. Drinky Crow Drinks Again collects over 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 vaudevillestyle humor and a breathtaking line that hearkens 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). Millionaire has won multiple Harvey and Eisner Awards and is also the creator of the popular Sock Monkey and Billy Hazelnuts books.

Dark Horse's sleeper hit of 1998, Tony Millionaire's Sock Monkey returns! Uncle Gabby, the sock monkey in question, and his restless companion The Crow have stumbled upon another delightful curiosity: a bat that's made his home in a little girl's dollhouse! With wide eyes and good intentions, the hapless duo commence a plan to introduce the nocturnal creature to the mouse living in the basement. But you know what they say about good intentions...!
The Eisner and Harvey Award nominee, Sock Monkey,is back! Uncle Gabby the Sock Monkey and his stuffed toy pal Mr. Crow once again yearn for playful mischief. While admiring the myriad trophies in the study, they get their cottony brains together and decide to go hunting. Being small themselves, they plan to hunt small creatures: salamanders, beetles, moths, and the like. After some difficulty with a shotgun, they acquire an exquisite, long-handled butterfly net as their "weapon" and head into the forest. And then, of course, the fun truly begins. Hoopla!
Uncle Gabby and Mr. Crow find themselves aboard a whaling ship at sea, and attempt to build a raft to escape the insane captain. Unfortunately, the captain gets wise and furiously rows after them in his whale boat. A giant sea serpent swirls into the mix, resulting in an old-fashioned Nantucket sleigh ride! If you have any hatches, batten them down, there's a storm a-brewin'!
