Review: Milk and Cheese: Dairy Products Gone Bad by Evan Dorkin


SUMMARY FROM GOODREADS.COM:
A carton of hate. A wedge of spite. A comic book of idiotic genius. The Eisner Award-winning dairy duo returns in this deluxe hardcover collecting every single, stupid Milk and Cheese comic ever made from 1989-2010 along with a sh*t-ton of supplemental awesomeness. This has everything you need! Don''t judge it - love it! Or else!
MY TAKE:

I find sarcastic and mean comics and cartoons entertaining sometimes, so I really thought I would enjoy this. However, for the most part, I didn't really get the sense of humor.

Milk and Cheese: Dairy Products Gone Bad is a collection of comics written by Evan Dorkin from 1989 to 2010. The illustration style reminds me of Monroe from MAD comics. It's mostly in black and white, but there are a few colored covers and comics included.

There were some funny lines and wordplay, but for most of the book, I wasn't really laughing. There were some swear words and a lot of rude jokes. I wasn't angry, though. I was just confused. The plot and dialogue of most of the strips did not make sense to me. I guess it appeals to a certain kind of humor.

Thanks to NetGalley and Dark Horse Comics for the e-copy.

THE GOOD:
  1. It's irreverent.
  2. It has a lot of personality.
  3. It tries to be witty.
THE BAD:
  1. It can be very rude.
  2. The sense of humor may not appeal to everyone.
FAVORITE QUOTE/S:
Whaddaya mean we can't come in! It says here you serve fine cheeses!
READ IT IF:
  1. You like the illustration style of Monroe from MAD comics.
  2. You have a morbid sense of humor.
  3. You like slightly offensive cartoons.
