The Red Monkey Double Happiness Book available at comiXology

The Red Monkey/Double Happiness on ipad

Fantagraphics and comiXology introduce a new cartoonist to the digital comics realm: South African Joe Daly! If mystery and comedy are what you crave, you'll want to download The Red Monkey Double Happiness Book by Joe Daly. Set in sun-drenched Cape Town, South Africa, this book features two full-length stories, "The Leaking Cello Case" and "John Wesley Harding," rife with mystery, suspense, action, adventure, conspiracy theories, cool cars and excellent weed. Daly brings a refreshingly original -- and utterly hilarious -- voice to the comics medium, a dry, deadpan wit anchored in everyday reality combined with unnervingly deranged plots, rendered with a hyper-detailed, half-realistic and half-cartoony Tintin-style crispness.

For $16.99, you get 118 pages of color comics by a new master of the medium. Get your Daly fix today!

Daly panels

"Working... in a comic realist mode reminiscent of, say, the old TV series The Rockford Files (Daly's Cape Town looks a lot like shorefront Southern California), Daly couldn't be any more entertaining. His visual-narrative skills are impeccable, his ear for naturally funny dialogue nothing short of astounding." - Ray Olson, Booklist

"[The Red Monkey Double Happiness Book] is basically Hergé by way of The Big Lebowski with a little bit of Repo Man thrown in for good measure.... very funny..." -- Chris Mautner, Robot 6
