Rich Tommaso is the talented young cartoonist who started off in mini-comics, wrote and drew a 4-issue series for Eros Comix (Cannibal Porn) and has now completed his first major work: a 120-page graphic novel. Clover Honey is the story of Abigail, an aspiring hitwoman out to prove her value to the family. She braves the wilds of Newark, exorbitant parking rates, traffic jams, and bad hair days to track down Trevor, her former mentor, who is on the lam with a big briefcase of mob dough. It reads like a collaboration between Jim Jarmusch and Quentin Tarantino, with its quirky humor, contemporary characters, and unflinching violence. A feast for readers looking for intelligent genre fiction in comics, Clover Honey is a gangster story that concentrates on character. Tommaso designed the look of the page with a combination of bold, fluid brush strokes and stark white highlights against solid gray background; the book is virtually two colors throughout.

"...displays a handsomely quirky drawing style and an incipient talent for emotionally complex storytelling." – Publishers Weekly
