Synopsis

Collecting the first five years of the world's most riotous comic strip.

Tony Millionaire's Maakies is one of the best and most popular weekly comic strips in America, running in over a dozen of the largest U.S. weekly newspapers including the Village Voice, L.A Weekly and Seattle's The Stranger. The strip is currently being developed for the Cartoon Network's popular Adult Swim. 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, Premillennial Maakies is a newly designed edition of the long out-of-print first Maakies collection, featuring the first five years of the strip, re-formatted in a beautiful, deluxe, landscape hardcover format that complements the strip's elegant and classical style.

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 Maakies has appeared as a series of animated segments on NBC's Saturday Night Live. He is also the creator of the popular Sock Monkey and Billy Hazelnuts books.

Premillennial Maakies , which gathers four previous Maakies collections into one tasty, Chip Kidd–designed package, is packed with social commentary and obscure references—one of the strips even features the artist pondering his own deluded creation.
