Sock Mon­key Trea­sury By Tony Millionaire [Fan­ta­graph­ics, $39.99]

Animation Magazine - - Frame- By- Frame -

Late-night an­i­ma­tion fol­low­ers may know Tony Millionaire (ne Scott Richard­son) as the man be­hind the short-lived Adult Swim se­ries The Drinky Crow Show, but comics afi­ciona­dos have been swoon­ing for years over his clever Maakies and Sock Mon­key comics and pic­ture books. This month, Fan­ta­graph­ics has put out an awe­some hard­cover col­lec­tion, which in­cludes all 12 is­sues of the Eis­ner Award-win­ning comic book, which was orig­i­nally pub­lished by Dark Horse Comics from 1998 to 2007, as well as the graphic novella Un­cle Gabby (2004) and the il­lus­trated sto­ry­book The Glass Door­knob (2002). We’re sure you’re go­ing to trip over the orig­i­nal Un­cle Gabby and Mr. Crow’s ad­ven­tures, which in­clude find­ing a home for a shrunken head, play­ing match­mak­ers be­tween a mouse and a bat, hunt­ing sala­man­ders and, yes, even try­ing to get to heaven! As a bonus, Fan­ta­graph­ics has also thrown in the full-length Sock Mon­key graphic novel The Inches In­ci­dent, in which an adorable play­thing starts act­ing like a Chuckie doll! Aaah, sub­lime mad­ness, in­deed.
