Rich Tommaso sets up another round of comics

Rich Tommaso set up his own webcomics site about a year and a half ago so that he could post his comics; despite an Eisner award for his work on Satchel Paige: Striking Out Jim Crow and numerous other accolades, he has had trouble selling his work to print publishers. Which just goes to show you what a bunch of losers they are, because Rich’s work is beautifully drawn and his stories are well told.

Anyway, if you haven’t seen his site, or if you have but it’s been a while, now is a great time to check it out because he is launching two new stories, Dry County and Yearling. With just a cover and one page up of each, it’s a bit hard to see what Dry County is about, but Yearling is clearly a superhero comic, and it has a female lead. Tommaso says it’s going to be like a crime novel: “Like a Batman Detective comic, only my hero would actually DO SOME INVESTIGATING.” What could possibly go wrong? I can’t wait to find out!

Rich’s stuff is always beautiful, and is well-published in Europe; it’s the American market he’s had trouble selling to. I think he may be doing a book through BOOM’s new lit-comic GN imprint Boomtown, though that might just be rumor.

These are great; thank you for this article.
