“It’s the story of a kid named Tommy Centro, his friends, and one really bad psychopath motherfucker.”
Why paraphrase when writer Jakob Free can sum it up like that? That’s the story of the webcomic series Tommy Centro, which Free and artists Jon Cairns, J.D. Faith and Daniel Irizarri have been serializing for the past year at TommyCentro.com. The series, now 50 pages into its long-form story, follows Centro on the trail of a murderer known as the Enigma Killer, and the complications that ensue with the involvement of friends, family and a retired vigilante named the Roman.
After making his comics debut in a back-up story in last year’s Prophet #32, Puerto Rican artist Daniel Irizarri follows that up with his own rebellious creator-owned strip Renegade Sex Machine that he’s releasing online for free.
Irizarri’s story mixes the promise of Transmetropolitan and Blade Runner with the visual impact of Invincible‘s Cory Walker going through a Alphonse Mucha phase. This first 12-page installment, dubbed “Track 1″ by Irizarri, is the first in a series the artist plans to release on a bimonthly schedule.
