Dork: Who’s Laughing Now? (2001, Slave Labor Graphics) ***1/2
W/A: Evan Dorkin.
Collection of short (sometimes very short) humour strips from the first issues of Dork.
Scattershot approach to comedy inevitably results in a few mis-fires, but the quality remains high. In particular the “Fun” pages and the stories of The Devil Puppet please. Art is variable, with newer pages showing an inventiveness not present in the earlier work. Rewards re-reading.
