Evan Dorkin (born April 20, 1965) is an American comics artist and writer. His best known works are the comic books Milk and Cheese and Dork. His comics often poke fun at fandom, even while making it clear that Dorkin is a fan himself.
As well as his comics work, Dorkin and his wife, Sarah Dyer, have written for Space Ghost Coast to Coast. He also wrote and produced an animated television pilot for Adult Swim called Welcome to Eltingville, based on his own characters. Dorkin and Dyer also wrote some episodes of the Superman animated series, such as the episode "Live Wire", which introduced a new character of the same name. The pair contributed to the script of the 2006 English-language version of the anime Shin Chan, which ran for six episodes. Dorkin went on to co-create Beasts of Burden with Jill Thompson. Dyer has also colored Dorkin's art.
