Daily OCD: 10/12/09

Online Commentary & Diversions:

• Review: "Where has Joe Daly been hiding? ... The Red Monkey Double Happiness Book... brings us... a tasty blend of cleanly detailed art straight out of Herge, hipster stoner humor and a couple of mysteries that work just as well in Cape Town as they would in the Los Angeles of Robert Towne's Chinatown or Ross Macdonald's Lew Archer stories." – John Mesjak, my3books

• Review: At Robot 6, Tom Bondurant gives his impressions partway through The Red Monkey Double Happiness Book: "So far I've gotten through the relatively-short first story, 'The Leaky Cello Case,' and found it to be nice and laid-back, if a little talky. ...Daly's style is quite appealing, and his use of color really brings his panels to life."

• Review: "[Kevin] Huizenga uses cartoon language to diagram the fuzzy chaos of mental insomnia with absolute clarity and precision [in Ganges #3]. He’s also really made the Ignatz format his own, with stunning use of limited color." – Bill Kartalopoulos, Robot 6 (same link as above)

• Plug: Kevin Schulke gives a quick overview of The Complete Peanuts 1973-1974

• Events: At ICAF, University of British Columbia professor Toph Marshall will discuss "Presocratic Philosophy and Hornschemeier's The Three Paradoxes" — more info at Paul's blog

• Events: Lilli Carré will debut a new animated short at the Citizen Jane Film Festival in Columbia, MO this weekend — more info at Lilli's blog
