Dork Volume 2: Circling The Drain (2003, Slave Labor Graphics) ****
A/W: Evan Dorkin.
More of the same from humorist Dorkin, whose art has gotten better in the two years since the first volume, and writing seems sharper (and more biting) than ever. Highlights of volume are the return of the Devil Puppet and a longish autobiographical story that packs an unexpected emotional wallop. As with first volume this can be a hit and miss affair, but the hit rate is high, and Dorkin is peerless at what he does. Recommended.
