You guys! You guy! Ohmigod! Cartoonist Tony Millionaire and animator Matt Danner are trying to make a hybrid CGI/live action movie based on Millionaire’s Sock Monkey books. Danner—WWE Slam City, Hotwheels—has penned a script and the duo re attempting to line up financing for the film.
It has been far too long since we linked to some art by the great Tony Millionaire, whose baroque penwork evokes pleasant feelings of timelessness. Maakies, his epic ongoing strip, is available online and in this episode, it’s what he claims is a true story. CLAIMS. On the other hand, Millionaire lives a baroque life and anything is possible.
Instant want: Fantagraphics will be collecting Tony Millionaire’s Sock Monkey stories in a treasury edition. The books originally came out from Dark Horse but are joining Millionaie’s Maakie’s collections at FBI.
