Cartoonist Tony Millionaire posted the last installment of his comic strip Maakies Thursday, Sept 6.
You can see the strip at maakies.com.
The comic strip about Drinky Crow, a crow with a bottomless appetite for booze, and Uncle Gabby, was notable for featuring a frequently inebriated bird and lovingly drawn sailing ships from bygone years.
Yes, already it’s better than Peanuts.
It’s also better than Dick Tracy, which featured a detective who spent many panels looking at his watch when he could have been drinking from bottles labeled “xxx”; better than Calvin and Hobbes, which was about a boy who played with an imaginary tiger when he could have been guzzling booze and calling heavily made up women “wenches” on pirate ships; and waaaaay better than Doonesbury, just because how couldn’t it be.
So long, Maakies, best comic strip ever. We’ll miss you.
