More About the Author

I was born in the fishing town of Gloucester Massachusetts, a town full of fishermen and seascape painters. My grandparents were artists, they taught me how to use ink pens and oil paint. My grandpop showed me lots of old newspaper comics he had saved, old ones, Roy Crane, Lionel Feininger, Winsor McKay. When I was in college I discovered R. Crumb and S. Clay Wilson. I drew a lot of perverted comics, until one day I discovered George Herriman, the grandfather of American comics. The true master. People often ask me if comics are "art." Whatever, I don't care what you call them, but when you're immersed in a collection of Herriman Sundays you understand what they're getting at.
I love funny comics but I love moving, emotional, poetical comics, too. Preferably a mixture of both.

I've been reading Maakies for years and years, back when it appeared in the Tuesday Comix installment of Word.com, which is not the Word.com of today. Back then, I used to gobble up Maakies and Sock Monkey books with much delight, and still return to them, but haven't bought anything in a long time, because parenthood has made me the stingy crab I am today. Well, I saw Mr. Millionaire hawking the book on the Maakies site, and for whatever inane reason, plunked down my card and picked it up. The net-net? If you're a Maakies fan, you'll love this book. So many clever ideas; so many great panels that truly are exemplary illustration (I particularly enjoy page 64); so many laughs. A perfect interruption to dull responsibility.

This is another great addition to the Maakies volumes. Tony puts a lot into his drawings. If you never have seen anything by Tony Millionaire take a look on the internet.

I have reviewed four other Maakies books and four times I've given out five stars but not with this one and I'll explain why.

Fantagraphics produces some of the most wonderful comic collections that include lots of extras including information about the artist and the characters. I generally leave with the feeling that I got more than my money's worth but in the case of Maakies I'm feeling unsatisfied. The book is less than 120 pages with only one comic per page. This is common with Maakies although there have been compilations that are about double the size. Tony Millionaire is an artist who moves to the beat of his own drum so he might include a strip in a foreign language or one that is just illustrations set to a poem or even entire strips devoted to photos of tattoos of Drinky Crow so the actual number of humorous Maakies cartoons that most people are looking for is far less than 120. At one point in the book the text and drawing seemed to get very sloppy and he redid the same comic two days in a row with the second being a cleaned up version of the first. His defense was that he was too drunk when he created the original comic. I'm never quite sure if he's joking around with his claims of drunkenness.

I consider Tony Millionaire a genius but his humor is definitely not for everyone. It is just about the crudest, vilest humor I have ever read. He includes all kinds of inside jokes that I assume only he and his circle of friends understand. He apparently will let other people write a comic strip including children whose comics generally make no sense at all. Sometimes all this self indulgence can be at the expense of the reader and I might give up on Maakies were it not for the fact that when he's on he can create some of the most riotous cartoons ever.
