"The graphic novel about the mokey who follows a man around."
There's this scary graphic novel I read a few years ago about a man who is being followed around by a monkey. The monkey doesn't say nothing, but just stares at the man. The man is the only one who sees this monkey. Then he starts to go crazy.
If anyone can ID this graphic novel for me, I'll appreciate it.

at home, in some box somewhere. It's another physiological horror thriller. This one has no words in it. Just pictures and it's quite spooky. This group go into some cave and one by one bad turn of events happen. Another tense read.
Anyways, I think that book might be made by the same author as the book i'm trying to find now.
Once I find it, i'll recommend you guys to read it.
An English clergyman named Jennings confides to Hesselius that he is being followed by a demon in the form of an ethereal monkey, invisible to everyone else, which is trying to invade his mind and destroy his life. Hesselius writes letters to a Dutch colleague about the victim's condition, which gets steadily worse with time as the creature steps up its methods, all of which are purely psychological. The title refers to Hesselius's belief that green tea was what unsealed Jennings's "inner eye" and led to the haunting. Emanuel Swedenborg's book Arcana Coelestia (1749) is cited on the power of demons.
Can't find any info on graphic novels based on the story.
I'd never heard of it before last night, but in an interesting act of synchronicity it was mentioned in Jess Nevins's backup feature in 'Fatale.' Fatale is itself an awesome monthly occuult/noir mashup comic book that (like its predecessors from the same creative team) regularly features Nevins writing about pulp history in the back. This month's column was on the origins of the 'occult detective' subgenre; 'Green Tea' was mentioned specifically. Great stuff.

Thanks a lot to you and B9.
I also like to thank Josh Simmons who also ID the book for me. I emailed him and he replied saying...
I'm pretty sure you're talking about "Green Tea" by Kevin Huizenga. Great story. First printed in Orchid (published by Sparkplug), then in Kevin's collection Curses (published by Drawn and Quarterly). I think those are both out of print......"
