“There are people who think that things that happen in fiction do not really happen. Those people are wrong.” @neilhimself
Evelyn Evelyn is the dark and disturbing story of conjoined twins, from their tragic birth during which both their parents and their doctor die, and through numerous dysfunctional “homes”, for want of a better word. The backstory of the musical act of Evelyn Evelyn, who bear a striking resemblance to @amandapalmer and Jason Webley, this graphic novel in 2 parts is illustrated in a beautifully dark gothic/ comic style by @cynthiavonbuhler, and is a compelling and beautiful read, if not an easy one. Trigger warnings: religious fanaticism, child pornography and trafficking, animal cruelty
