Till I came across this interview with Evan Brian Doyle, published today on Animation Insider, I had no idea a kid attending the Science and Engineering at the Yvonne A. Ewell Townview Magnet Center was a published author. "It's weird," he says. "I'm the only published author in my class." Which is, um, yeah, weird. And the book? It's titled Evan Brain! Adventures of a Delusional Kid Superhero, which Evan co-wrote and illustrated (with his mom) and keeps getting compared to ... this can't be right ... Calvin and Hobbes? That we'll have to see for ourselves, but the book's been out since October, and, from the looks of the Web site, the family's looking to build an empire outta Evan -- from greeting cards to magnets to T-shirts. I am falling so behind. --Robert Wilonsky

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
