Joe daly dungeon quest 4
Dungeon Quest, Vol. 1 by Joe DalyOne day Millenium [sic] Boy decided to grab his hobo stick, his bandana, and his Swiss Army knife, bid his mom goodbye, and head off on a quest for adventure. Joined by his best friend Steve (weapon: baseball bat; clothing: wife beater, cargo pants and sandals), they soon find themselves in a violent altercation with two other adventure seekers. It ends badly for their antagonists (“Whoa, check it out, dude! You actually knocked this dude’s brain right out of his cranium!”) and Millenium Boy and Steve become the proud owners of fancy weapons upgrades (a crowbar and a steel chain). So on they trek, and the next inductee to their group is the muscle-bound Lash Penis.
And then things start getting weird!
Readers of 2009’s Red Monkey Double Happiness Book will recognize Joe Daly’s delightfully unique stoner/philosopher dialogue and distinctive character designs, but the hilarious over-the-top Role Playing Game action (complete with periodic updates for each character’s status in ten criteria, including “dexterity,” “intelligence,” and “money”) propel this new story into a heretofore unachieved action-comedy realm. By the end of this book (the first chapter of a projected four-part epic), the trio has been joined by Nerdgirl the Archer, Lash Penis has nearly had his arm cut off, they’ve acquired a whole new nifty bag of tricks, and the menaces have become increasingly surreal and lethal. Where will it end?
Stay tuned for Dungeon Quest Book Two in Fall 2010!

In this third book, our heroes complete their learning with Bromedes and are guided towards further quests in Rufford Park and beyond, to the Zuur Plateau. However, they are not yet clear of the hazards of Fireburg Forest. In this third book, by far the longest installment of the series so far pages! What a great initial run of books we've seen from South Africa's Daly, and this one may feature his most potent cartooning yet.

Joe Daly's new comic, Dungeon Quest Book 3, reveals an even more complex level of storytelling from the cartoonist in his ever-expanding, mind-bending swashbuckle of a quest for the Atlantean Resonator Guitar. A giant-sized digest, this volume is double the size of the two previous books, including some amazing supplements and illustrative guides along the way. Joe was kind enough to answer questions about everything from the intricacies of the book to his inspirations and research. This interview was conducted over email in June and July, Eric Buckler: In the beginning of Dungeon Quest Volume 1, Millennium Boy starts in a very normal looking house and the book builds from that very realistic world into a quest with lots of fantastical elements and environments, how did you start to build these elements in? Joe Daly: The fantastical elements were planned from the beginning, of course, or rather than planned they were an inevitability, since the theme of the book is fantasy adventure.
