He does a weekly strip called MAAKIES and had a couple of comics by Dark Horse called SOCK MONKEY. Tony draws so well It make me mad.

Of course you knew that already, right?
Terry


No I didn't because I've never picked up TCJ. I thought it was just Fantagraphics whoring itself.

I don't want to get into a pissing match about Fantagraphics, but don't let a dislike for them stop you from buying their stuff. I personally feel that EVERYONE I've come across that was in anyway connected to Fantagraphics,(other then artist), was a royal asshole. However that does not change the fact that they printed HEY WAIT..., or The Crumb reprints, or for that matter the wonderful Winter special.

I'll be frank, I normally leave my indy musings on the TCJ board as I find that has a higher percentage of folks who have at least read or heard about the topics at large. "Who is Tony Millionaire?" Either get glasses or switch comic shops, my friend. Semantics can be a dirty word, but I remember a store manager proudly intoning his support for "independents" because he ordered Judge Dredd and Nexus.

I missed your original Winter Special thread Terry, as I don't always poke my nose up here, but I'll pony up my two cents and say that it was a fantastic mixed package. The comics section has only been eclipsed by the legendary Comix 2000 as an anthology. I'll offer more but I'm being called away...

Terry - Don't get me wrong, I like some of the stuff Fantagraphics puts out like Jessica Abell's books, Love and Rockets and a couple others here and there but I don't need to spend however much $$ on TCJ to tell me that.

Isn't this what actual comic book conventions are supposed to look like?


Why don't you try to redirect their interests back towards the kinds of sites they'd enjoy better? That's not to say that there isn't some interesting talk happening.

If you're a fan of great comics, please be like Terry/snoid and don't let the fact that we're gigantic assholes keep you from trying the TCJ Winter Special. There are a lot of really good comics in there, like Tony's and Joe Sacco's. It's a great sampler for people interested in checking out alternative comics. The written parts are notably asshole-free, too, for the most part.

Sock Monkey is a great read, too, and that's done by Dark Horse. I'm pretty sure Diana Schutz is the editor, and she's totally well-liked, so you're safe there. I still think about that page in Volume 3 with the sock monkey running with scissors, and that comic came out more than a year ago. Tony Millionaire's a first-tier cartoonist. Collect them all!

Chris, here's a suggestion for an indy comic you may not have heard about: Supermonster #14, titled "Gloriana Comics" by Kevin Huizenga. It's a very thick self-published comic, $3. I re-read it last night. On the one hand, Huizenga's work is charmingly drawn slice of life. On the other, it's hugely formally ambitious and deeply thoughtful. One story juggles an enormously fun scientific explanation of why the moon turns red and looks big, the narrator looking at that phenomenon, and the narrator talking to his wife about explaining the phenomenon to some other onlookers -- all in the same scene! It's really charming, great stuff, and I think you'll hear a lot more from this cartoonist in the next few years. (PO Box 12299, St. Louis, MO 63157)

Kevin's comic can be seen in part and even ordered at the USS Catastrophe comics site, but they really demand the tactile experience for a full appreciation.
