When We Were Very Maakies is our second hardcover collection and features over two years' worth of Maakies in a beautiful, deluxe, landscape format that complements the strip's elegant and classical style. Dave Eggers, the bestselling author of A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius, contributes the introduction to When We Were Very Maakies. Reading Maakies is like reading a beautifully illustrated diary. If you pay attention you can watch the evolution of the cartoonist as he grows from a drunken penniless ne'e'r-do-well to a drunken million-dollar-less som'tim's-do-well.

Maakies has been 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, Chicago Reader, and Seattle’s The Stranger. (It was also a short-lived Adult Swim animated series in 2008.) As written and drawn by renaissance lush-cum-degenerate Millionaire, Maakies features the comical adventures of a drunken crow on the high seas, blending vaudeville-style humor (with plenty of bodily fluids and grievous bodily harm) and a breathtakingly beautiful line that harkens back to the glory days of the American comic strip. Green Eggs and Maakies is our eighth collection and features yet another two years’ worth of Maakies in a beautiful, deluxe, landscape format that complements the strip’s elegant and classical style.

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.

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.
