Hidden Gems Sale spotlight: Rich Tommaso
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under sales specials 25 Jul 2008 11:00 PM

Every day in July we're spotlighting books from our month-long Hidden Gems Sale, wherein we're featuring some of our under-the-radar backlist titles and encouraging you to try them by offering them at a nice discount of 25% off!

Today's spotlight features the first major work from Rich Tommaso, a talented cartoonist and former Fantagraphics staffer.

Clover Honey by Richard Tommaso

Clover Honey

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.
