Must 've been sleeping when the news broke that the fine folks at Cartoon Network's Adult Swim had aired a pilot based on Tony Millionaire's brilliant Maakies weekly strip, appearing in a fine alt-weekly newspaper near you (including the Austin Chronicle), earlier this year. Evidently, the Adult Swim folks liked the ratings of The Drinky Crow Show well enough -- Millionaire says they wanted the funniest but also the most depraved sort of stuff -- to take it to a series, debuting next February!

That's just one of the choice nuggets Millionaire shares in this short interview in this week's Austin Chronicle with Wayne Alan Brenner, a pre-game report in anticipation of today's signing and original art sale at Austin Books and Comics.
