It’s back to our old pal Tom Spurgeon at The Comics Reporter, for the news that Fantagraphics are preparing a collection of Tony Millionaire’s Sock Monkey character for later this year.
Spurgeon reports that the company are planning for The Sock Monkey Treasury: A Tony Millionaire’s Sock Monkey Collection to come out towards the end of 2013, and will collect together stories totalling 344 pages. Of those, eighty will be in four-colour.
Millionaire has a close relationship with Fantagraphics, and Associate Publisher Eric Reynolds is quoted by Spurgeon:
Tony Millionaire’s Sock Monkey is one of the great characters in comics. I’ve been reading these books to my daughter since she was three. She has an antique Sock Monkey given to her by Uncle Tony himself. So it is not without a large dose of personal pride that we have acquired these books.
