A new oversized (12" x 7") hardcover collection of one of America's most beloved weekly comic strips. Tony Millionaire's Maakies is one of the most popular weekly comic strips in America, running in over ten of the largest US weekly newspapers, including the New York Press, New Times Los Angeles, and Seattle's The Stranger. 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, The House at Maakies Corner features a year's worth of Maakies in a beautiful, deluxe 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 (Millionaire is a tremendous fan of both). Millionaire has won multiple Harvey and Eisner Awards and Maakies has appeared as a series of animated segments on NBC's Saturday Night Live.

Millionaire is a great master of the old-time freewheeling comic strip, and this work takes full advantage of every last bit of the medium.
