“You won’t want to miss this two-volume comic. Cynthia von Buhler’s artwork makes this seem like a stop-action animation. You can almost hear the twins as they tell their stories and sing their songs. It’s a life of tragedy, but one that holds much interest for fans of the weird and wonderful. Be sure to pick up your copy.” – Kimberly Lynn Workman, Fandomania

Enthusiasts of genuine tragedy and celebrity intrigue, gird your mental loins for an authentic tale of unbelievable hardship and epic catastrophe!

This wholly true and accurate account details the extraordinary lives of Evelyn and Evelyn, a darling but unfortunate pair of conjoined twins who brave extreme circumstances of calamity and adversity, such as: the bizarre and bloody night of their birth and subsequent orphaning; their early years on a chicken farm; shocking encounters with depraved gentlemen; life in the circus; the terrible fates of their dearest friends; and concluding with the sisters’ rise to international fame via the internet, as told with astounding eloquence by musicians Amanda Palmer and Jason Webley, and documented in gorgeous detail by the artist Cynthia von Buhler.

Comics Bulletin

•Comic book website

“Done in the "Dark Cabaret" style, Evelyn Evelyn is reminiscent of Emily the Strange, A Series of Unfortunate Events and the dark humor of Tim Burton and Edward Gorey. The influences are abundantly clear.”

Neil Gaiman

•Author of Sandman and American Gods

“Cynthia von Buhler … brings delicacy and charm to a story that contains tragedy and darkness. Her illustrations have the simplicity of great children's illustrators, but they tell a story that could only exist because adults are foolish and confused and sometimes evil.”

Publishers Weekly

•Publishing trade magazine

“This is a graphic novel that needs to be experienced, and with von Buhler’s stunning, dark but clever illustrations, this phantasmagorical journey is a memorable one. Indeed, the story serves as an insightful metaphor about the dark corners of human experience, and, perhaps more importantly, the small slivers of light that illuminate them.”
