To commemorate the impending 10th anniversary of Superman the Animated Series, Toon Zone News and the have teamed up for an interview series with an assortment of people associated with the show or the tie-in Superman Adventures comic book series.
Evan Dorkin and Sarah Dyer have accumulated an extensive pedigree in the world of independent comic books, both independently and as a team. Dorkin’s work includes the long-running Dork and Milk and Cheese comic books, while Dyer’s Action Girl Comics anthology/’zine showcased a variety of female cartoonists to create “girl-positive and female-friendly” comics that were not anti-boy. The two made the jump into animation writing with a gig on Space Ghost Coast to Coast, and have also done a pilot for Adult Swim (Welcome to Eltingville, based on Dorkin’s Eltingville comic strip).
Toon Zone News and the World’s Finest Online caught up with Dorkin via e-mail and with both Dorkin and Dyer in person at the MoCCA Art Festival in June to ask them about their episodes of Superman the Animated Series and the four issues of the Superman Adventures comic book they collaborated on.
