From the author of the “Doodle-A-Day” comics series, and co-author of “Dorkus and the Affairs of Lord Willing” comes a new collection of cartoons, “Slap Happy Jenkins.” 174 full-color cartoons so wild, they’re guarenteed to drive you completely slap happy!
I’ve known Wes Jenkins for well over 30 years and when I say this is the greatest cartoonist I’ve ever met, obviously I haven’t met many cartoonists. But his stuff is brilliant and I think the guy is a genius. I just wouldn’t trust him with my car, kids, dog, or a matchbook. Please buy his book before he kills again.

Wes is one of the seventeen most interesting people I have ever met. His take on the world will make you laugh out loud. If I were you I would buy the book, fill your mouth with milk and then go to a 4th grade science fair and rent yourself out as a volcano.

Slap Happy Jenkins is wonderful stream-of-dada comix commentary from a veteran silly person and cartoonist! Wes Jenkins’ graphic guffaws are perfect for any devotee of the Kliban-Larson-Piraro school of inspired pictorial lunacy! HIGH-ly Recommended!

We’d like to apologize for the confusing headline, which seems to suggest that you might read The 37 Cartoons You Should Read Before You Die, the astounding cartoon collection by Norman Dog, before you die again – that is, after some previous death. This is of course impossible. What we mean, of course, is that you should read it again, before you die. I apologize for any confusion.
And if you’ve never read “The 37 Cartoons,” (and have an iPad) this is your chance to read them again for the very first time! This cartoon classic (now with a new cover) has been reformatted, remixed and optimized for the iBooks format.
