A taut, unsettling exploration of sexual perversion, Rich Tommaso's PERVERSO! drives you straight into the mind and life of a "bad girl" photographer obsessed with his work. The pornographer, known only as Roy, is desperately seeking a more fulfilling sexual lifestyle than the one he has with his dull, uninterested, lush of a wife. But when his wife up and leaves him one day, he begins to feel more lost than free. Even his fantasies behind the camera begin to revile him--especially when a certain new "model" arrives at his studio. This is the second in a trilogy Tommaso has planned about "camera shy" men trying to create a more desirable world within their art form. So, keep watching, if you so desire!
Rich Tommaso was a student of The Joe Kubert Art School where he learned many techniques that he still today puts to use in his comics. He learned other things there that he would never put to use in his comics as well. He quit school after his first year there, never being interested in a career drawing superheroes and instead spent many years making pizza while trying to find more personal things to write and draw about. In this area, he has been mildly successful, sometimes focusing his stories upon his own life experiences, while other times falling back on just "making things up." He's worked for many companies such as: Fantagraphics, Top Shelf, and Dark Horse and became fed-up with bouncing around from one to the other until he finally found a home in 2003 at Alternative Comics.
