Now that the Pizza Underground tour is over, it feels safe to post about Toby's new comic, Under the Tartufo Moon.
Tartufo, in this incarnation, is basically an extended preview of a longer story, but the existing art is so intricately drawn, subtlety sweet, and grody enough to warrant a standalone existence. ;)
After flipping through a few pages, here are some scenarios that popped up: a tiny Santa with a belt made of dicks — actually, I can’t even go down that road. This comic is quadruple x-rated, and that’s fun; but the real joys of the work are found in the playfully surreal wordplays and landscapes. There’s a sensitivity to Toby’s art that, when fully absorbed, lasts much longer than all the funnies combined.
And if that sounds appealing at all, do what you gotta do, because there’s only 5 copies left.
