Quite simply there is no moral message behind this comic and there is no complicated plot. The stories are quite simply about a wedge of cheese and a carton of milk’s war against all that is fluffy, nice or just downright irritating in the world. And with quotes like:
‘I dare you to kick that baby into the street!’...‘I shall take that dare!’
there’s really nothing to complain about with this comic – and it is a comic, not a graphic novel because there’s none of that plot, character, structure nonsense.
The only thing that I could have wished for to make this comic perfect would have been to have had more stories (not longer stories as 2 or 3 pages is just right) and maybe in colour. But hey, black and white worked for Charlie Chaplin so that’s not really an issue.
Milk and Cheese should be our role models, putting right what’s wrong with the world and getting legless at the same time...viva là Milk and Cheese!
p.s. if you liked the strange and at times twisted humour, you might want to check out ‘Squee’ or ‘JTHM’ by Jhonen Vasquez for crazy, though altogether darker humour. It’s just one mad tumble down the rabbit hole...

I haven't checked out "Milk & Cheese" for quite some time, but I was feeling nostalgic so I picked up this collection. It collects all the "number 1" issues published by Slave Labor Graphics, "Milk & Cheese #1," "Milk & Cheese's Other #1," "Milk & Cheese's Third Number One," and "Milk & Cheese's "4th Number One"." There are a few extra pages thrown in and an alternate cover for "Milk & Cheese's 1st 2nd Issue."
I'm happy to report the dairy products gone bad are still pretty funny! Sure some of the humor is dated. "Milk & Cheese" lambaste and destroy fads that are long since past, and Seinfeld jokes just don't carry over nowadays, but it is hard to find fault with the "Merv Griffin" skit. A gin-fueled rampage of destruction is always good times, and no one delivers quite like "Milk & Cheese."
This collection is visually designed to pair with Evan Dorkin's Hectic Planet, which is his more "serious" work. You can make a little Evan Dorkin library!
Hilarious dialogue only adds to the mayhem. It's apparent that M&C take their mission, to destroy all idiots, very seriously. The question is: how can Evan Dorkin take essentially the same storyline and make it entertaining over and over again? Believe me, he does it VERY well, and the little comments and asides add immeasurably to the fun. I would prefer to give this 9 of 10, so please forgive the 4.
Now if only he'd start collecting DORK in trade editions. I need more!
This is the trade paperback that collects the first 4 volumes. Collect them all!
