The next month's issue of Booklist reviewed a recent release by a Fantagraphics cartoonist, excerpted below:
Sock Monkey Treasury: A 'Tony Millionaire's Sock Monkey' Collection
by Tony Millionaire
"Millionaire's Sock Monkey comics feature a pair of stuffed toys…who dwell in a large Victorian mansion with their young owner, Ann-Louise…Millionaire's old-fashioned, lushly delicate drawing style is the ideal vehicle for these faux-nostalgic tales, which frequently end in devastation or take a disconcertingly dark turn….While the Sock Monkey strips bear a surface resemblance to classic children's comics, their actual audience is adults who fondly recall the comics of their youth but now require edgier fare."
– Gordon Flagg, Booklist
