About richtommaso

My name is Rich Tommaso. I've created a slew of original comics for Image, Dark Horse Comics, IDW, Top Shelf, and Fantagraphics Books. The one thing I never got the chance to do in my 25-year career was to create an anthology magazine. A slick comics magazine, very much in the spirit of the golden age of comics (when practically EVERY comic book was an anthology). The apex of which were the titles produced by EC COMICS. A periodical filled with comic serializations of the sci-fi / crime / horror / war / western variety. 

Publishers today are fickle when it comes to producing an anthology series--featuring multiple comics and printed in a magazine-sized format. So I've decided to do it here, all by myself...

Welcome to my new comics magazine, BLACK PHOENIX. Here at this Patreon page you will get to see a magazine unfold, cover to cover. It will feature: each volume's cover, long-running and short-form comics, single page illustrations, fake movie, toy, and beer ads. Contents pages, indicia pages, check lists, articles, interviews, cut-out subscription ads, and of course, a back cover illustration--basically, everything that would normally go into an illustrated magazine of this sort. New and unpublished comics material from illustrious cartoonists of our time, VALIS, ELMEER, RIFIFI, who, incidentally, are all one and the same (my nod to Moebius and Heavy Metal magazine). Now, an entire issue will take me more than just a month to complete--it will be like an issue every 4 months. But, every week you can expect to see about 2-4 pages of comics material.

For any questions or comments you can DM me at: https://www.instagram.com/richtommaso/
Goals
64% complete
If I can reach this amount monthly, i can possibly create more art and put out my magazine in a much more timely fashion.
