About the Author
Evan Dorkin (born April 20, 1965) is an American comics artist and writer. His most well-known works are the comic books Milk and Cheese and Dork. His comics often poke fun at fandom, even while making it clear that Dorkin is a fan himself. As well as his comics work, Dorkin has also written for animation, including (with his wife Sarah Dyer, also a comics writer/artist, married) Space Ghost: Coast to Coast. He also wrote and produced Bring me the Head of Boba Fett, an animated television pilot for Adult Swim called Welcome to Eltingville, based on his own characters. Dorkin and Dyer also wrote some episodes of the Superman animated series, particularly the episode "Live Wire," which introduced a new character of the same name. Additionally, the pair contributed to the script of the 2006 English-language version of the anime Shin Chan. After an initial six-episode order proved successful, more episodes were ordered, but Dorkin and Dyer are no longer working on the series. They had also been developing a pilot for a series entitled "Tyrone's Inferno" for Adult Swim for the last few years, but according to Dorkin's LiveJournal the project is dead. Dorkin has been the recipient of several Eisner Awards, including 2002's Best Writer/Artist: Humor.
Top customer reviews
Evan Dorkin truly has a mind from future, as almost every act from the book mirrors acts committed by today's "Super Fans"; from insane hour long binges of television shows, rage fueled rants on social media sites regarding comics and television, and awful gate keeping that dictates who can and can't been in the fandom.
The Eltingville Club is truly both a love letter and warning regarding fans and all of their craziness.
If you like irreverent humor then you will love this book, it really spears the annoying side of geek culture right in the balls.
