The Strangest Coloring Book Of All Time? Tony Millionaire’s Sea Monsters From Boom! Studios

by Hannah Means Shannon

Boom! Studios have announced a new coloring book featuring the work of a comic artist from their Archaia imprint. Tony Millionaire’s Sea Monsters Coloring Book is going to be a “nautical softcover collection” of illustrations by Tony Millionaire, of Sock Monkey fame, featuring his characters.

Arriving in stores in September 2018, the book will feature over 40 black and white illustrations.

Tony Millionaire says:

This book is dedicated to Jim Campbell. A number of years ago a guy named Jimmy sent me a copy of a Maakies strip of mine; he had colored it with colored pencils. I had been taught the Fine Art of pen & ink drawing by my grandfather and I thought it sacrilege to color a drawing that was not meant to be colored from the start. He proved me wrong, the comic strip looked wonderful, so I hired him to color a graphic novel I was working on. Now Jimmy has a great job working freelance for big shot comics companies and he’s written, drawn and colored a few books himself. A Rising Star, born from the humble womb of Coloring in Books!

Print copies of Tony Millionaire’s Sea Monsters Coloring Book will be arriving  for sale in September 2018.
