In 1992, Dyer created and began distributing the Action Girl Newsletter, a review zine listing zines and mini-comics created by female writers and artists. Her first comic book credit was for coloring the cover for Pirate Corp$ #5 (December 1992).
Dyer launched the all-female comics anthology Action Girl Comics in October 1994, which showcased comics and mini-comics by female artists and writers, as well as Dyer's own Action Girl series. In addition to her work with comics, Dyer has self-published manuals and articles on topics ranging from zine publishing to cooking to making clothing, all firmly rooted in DIY philosophy.
Dyer worked with her husband, Evan Dorkin, on the pilot episode for Welcome to Eltingville in 2002. The couple 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. Dyer has also colored Dorkin's work including the cover art for several ska compilation albums in the 1990s. Dyer wrote for Space Ghost Coast to Coast, Superman Adventures, and Batman Beyond.
