The Chicago Public Library recently established a partnership with online content sharing service Hoopla, which among other things means I suddenly have access to several thousand old comics I've never read before, including most of the back catalog of Dark Horse, Top Shelf and Boom! Studios. This latest one, the legendary absurdist comic book Milk and Cheese by Evan Dorkin, first started getting published my junior year in college, which is nearly a perfect age to start reading this kind of sma ...more

I couldn't really take the collected works. Fine individually, but a bit grating all together.

Milk and Cheese: Dairy Products Gone Bad by Evan Dorkin is a graphic novel that will be released on December 21 2011. This hardcover volume will contain the collected works from the series, everything released between 1989 and 2010. This Eisner Winning comic is about two drunk and violent dairy products that insult and beat down just about anyone that crossed their path. Some have dubbed this comic a book of idiotic genius.

Evan Dorkin is a cartoonist I admire. I've picked up just about everything he's done since finding his Pirate Corps series back in the day.

Milk and Cheese was a project I liked a great deal in my twenties, but now as a grown-up, it was arduous to make my way through this collection. It goes for such easy targets, is filled with such juvenile spite, and ultimately fails as a property that has anything to say to anyone outside of folks who are young and angry and fourteen years old. Yeah, early o

You know that saying that too much of a good thing is never good for you? Try consuming milk and cheese in large quantities and see what happens. I’ll be waiting while you’re finishing up in the bathroom.
Strangely, the same thing applies to Milk and Cheese by Evan Dorkin. Mostly because on its own Milk and Cheese is a very cool concept: an angry, violent, foul-mouthed anthropomorphic piece of cheese and carton of milk hate on everything– drugs, porn, alcoholism, standup, comics, elitism, etc. T

I think I saw this mentioned in a comic I was reading by Scott Allie saying that this was the best thing Dark Horse ever published. Seemed intriguing. I'm still not really sure what to make of this. I will admit I found it funny at times and I appreciated some of the cultural references though I also know some of them from the earlier strips definitely went over my head. As far as social commentary, I felt it was often spot on but also kind of unnecessary. I didn't find any of the messages to be ...more

I may have gone into this with expectations too high. A comics podcast I listen to has been raving about this for weeks so I checked it out. It can be really funny, but much of the humor is really of its time (a lot of the book was written in the 90's) and doesn't hold up too well. Also, these are not the kinds of strips you can really read back-to-back. The jokes get pretty repetitive so if you do pick this up I suggest reading it in short bursts instead of in one or two sittings like I did. In ...more

It's Milk & Cheese. It's awesome.

Some are complaining that it's a one joke strip. OF COURSE IT'S A ONE JOKE STRIP! It's a really good joke, and I doubt you'll find as much truth in other books that you find under that one Milk & Cheese joke. I doubt Dorkin would want to admit to the amount of truth in this book. Having all the work in one place really shows Dorkins evolution as an artist. It's also laugh out loud funny.

So don't read it one sitting, savour it over many sittings. Savour th

Repetitive, violent, repetitive, angry, violent, violent, repetitive, angry...

This got so mind-blowingly old I had to put it down. Too bad, because visually the book has lots to offer. 2/3 is as far as I got, and I probably could have ended at 1/3. No bueno.

Fun stuff. The brevity of each story (which range from 1-8 pages) and the one-note nature of the characters make this ideal bathroom reading.

This isn't the greatest comic I've read. It just seems like it's trying to hard to be funny. Milk and Cheese got a couple chuckles out of me with their crazy antics, but that's about it.

Loved the over the top humor when I was younger. Comes off as a bit much collected in this volume.
