21 Portraits from Tony Millionaire’s ‘500 Portraits’ [Preview]

On sale now from Fantagraphics is 500 Portraits, a very handsome hardcover volume collecting more than two decades of pen-and-ink portraiture by Tony Millionaire, the award-winning cartoonist of Drinky Crow’s Maakies and Sock Monkey. The book contains, as advertised, 500 drawings of wildly diverse real-life figures from the realms of comics, music, film and history, not to mention animals and fictional characters as well, many of which first appeared in esteemed publications like The Believer and The New Yorker.

Fantagraphics provided ComicsAlliance with a hefty and beautiful preview of some of 500 Portraits’ comic book-related subjects, including visages of Hergé, Popeye, Danny Hellman, Johnny Ryan, James Kochalka, Charles Burns, Daniel Clowes and Chris Ware.In support of the book, Millionaire will attend exhibitions of 500 Portraits material at two comics stores later this week: Floating World in Portland, Oregon on Thursday, January 5; and the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery in Seattle, Washington on Saturday, January 7. Be sure to stop by those events if you’re in the Pacific Northwest.
