Containing more than ten years of Sock Monkey and Mr. Crow adventures, Millionaire’s Sock Monkey Treasury is a must-have for any fan. It’s a fantastic look at Millionaire’s style evolving over the years, with finely detailed art and coloring. The stories are entertaining as they are macabre, and Uncle Gabby and Mr. Crow are in top-form throughout. ... It’s wonderful to see all these stories together in one graphic novel.

•Literary review magazine

This handsome omnibus collects all 12 of the Sock Monkey comic books, plus the picture book The Glass Doorknob (2002) and the melancholy graphic novella Uncle Gabby (2004). 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.
