Comics Alternative Interview: Evan Dorkin, Part 2

It seems like just yesterday that I posted about a new Comics Alternative podcast, yet here we go again, with Derek Royal and myself presenting the second part of our epic, two-part interview with cartoonist Evan Dorkin. Today we continue on with Evan's discussion of Beasts of Burden, the animal "supernatural mystery" comic he co-creates with artist Jill Thompson. Read some older "Beasts" material online here, and watch for a new one-shot, "What the Cat Dragged In," in comics shops on May 4!

We cover a lot of other ground as well, including the new Lovecraftian "Calla Cthulhu" series he's co-writing with Sarah Dyer (with art by Erin Humiston) for the Stela app. Really, there's too much to try and summarize here; though if you listened to yesterday's show, you already have a sense of how wide-ranging Evan's interests and passions are. Give it a listen!

Oh, and just for the heck of it, here is some of my vintage Dorkinalia collection:

Milk and Cheese fridge magnets, and a die from the WIZARD board game!
And World's Funnest buttons!
