Is there something better than this issue of The Eltingville Club? Probably. It’s only my second issue of the book and it’s the last one ever. Supposedly.
Because this comic, which comes so long after the first I forgot Dorkin was doing another, is worth the wait. Dorkin puts a lot of work into the art. He puts a lot of work into the writing. His visual pacing of the jokes is phenomenal. The only problem with this comic is choking from all the laughter. It might have even hurt at one point, I was laughing so hard.
The issue takes place ten years after the previous one. The club members have all grown up, all developing further into comic fandom thanks to the Internet and life decisions. Questionable ones, usually.
Dorkin does a great job finishing Club. It’s great in whole, in scenes, art, dialogue; it’s awesome.
