9781560976547: Der Struwwelmaakies

A new hardcover collection of one of America's most popular weekly comic strips. 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 New York Press, L.A Weekly 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, Der Struwwelmaakies is our third annual hardcover collection and features over two years' worth of Maakies in a beautiful, deluxe, landscape hardcover format that complements the strip's elegant and classical style.

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. This book collects the latest of Tony Millionaire's weekly strips, wherein Drinky Crow, as always, steals the show.

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 series of comics and children's books.

About the Author:

Tony Millionaire lives in Pasadena, California, with his wife and two daughters, where he is currently developing a Sock Monkey movie.

From Booklist:

Like the titles of The House at Maakies Corner (2002) and When We Were Very Maakies (2004), that of the third Maakies collection parodies a historic children's book, Der Struwwelpeter, a nineteenth-century German collection of cautionary tales in verse, best known for its unsettling cover illustration (an icon for comics artists) of a boy with unkempt hair and curly, overgrown nails. Standing in for "Sloppy Peter" on this book's cover are Maakies' alcoholic, superslob antiheroes, Uncle Gabby (a monkey) and Drinky Crow. Moreover, the latest gathering of Millionaire's outrageously scabrous, consummately politically incorrect comic strip sees the duo come--time and again, and one or the other--to much the same end as Struwwelpeter, whose fingers are eventually chopped off. For as you might expect of antiheroes nonpareil, Gabby and Drinky are virtually incapable of success and wind up shot, stabbed, hung, and otherwise rendered food for worms. Which doesn't keep them from coming back for more abuse and further raunchy, unspeakably fatalistic shenanigans. Not for the kids. Ray Olson
