Synopsis

The very first Maakies compilation of every strip appearing from its inception in 1994 through to 1996. Millionaire focuses on the adventures of an alcoholic and suicidal crow, mixed with shockingly elegant depictions of nautical adventures. It's all uncannily crafted with Millionaire's breathtaking line, which eerily reproduces the feel and spirit of earlier classic newspaper strips. Designed by Millionaire and Chip Kidd, whose art direction and packaging of Batman The Complete History ensured his place as one of the all time greatest book designers.

He'll devote a series of panels to beautifully rendered riverboats, while the next entries feature a roving band of ear mites who take up residence in Drinky-Crow's rotted, sun-baked skull and ask him to describe the afterlife (""like being strapped to a tornado of pain,"" he responds).
