Illustrated story of musical Siamese twins.

The Long of It

Conjoined twins were born in the 80’s in a small town in the middle of nowhere, USA.  The mother dies at birth and the doctor who delivered them is mortified by their unique connection.  So, he does the first thing that any small town doctor would do – find a powerful tool that will rip them apart.  No worries though, they miraculous get saved and their journey in life continues until the meet Amanda Palmer and ason Webley on MySpace who decide to produce them.

The Thoughts about It

Un-freakin-believable! YOU ALL!  I totally heart Dark Horse Comics.  So far this is a two for two win on what they publish.  But Evelyn Evelyn?  Really? Ah-MAY-zing.  And AMANDA – freakin- PALMER?  Is there anyone else cooler? I truly don’t think so.

Now here’s the thing, I am not going to give anything else other than the summary that I – er – summarized above BUT I do want to tell you that I did some research about the Evelyn Evelyn tale and lordy it is SO meta.  Sure, sure, Amanda and Jason deny being Evelyn Evelyn and I most absurdly believe them in this alternate universe.  Because, you know, E & E ? They’re an entity of their own.

Quickly close the window of this review and run – RUN – to the nearest book buying plaza and pick this zinger up.  And anything else you see Dark Horse comics publishing.  I know I will.

And for your viewing pleasure if you need to wait on the purchase.  (*nudge* uh, why?) watch some E&E talent.

  1. The only person possibly more awesome than Amanda Palmer is her man Neil Gaiman. :) I will definitely have to pick this up.
