The Pervert [book, comic]

The Pervert [book, comic]

THIS IS AN OWNVOICES BOOK THAT IS A GRAPHIC NOVEL ABOUT A TRANSGENDER SEX WORKER WRITTEN BY THE SAME. IT'S OKAY, IT'S MOSTLY JUST A BUNCH OF SHORT COMICS OR JUST DRAWINGS WITH A LITTLE BIT OF NARRATIVE. THE MAIN CHARACTER'S STORY IS PRETTY MUCH WHAT YOU THINK IT WOULD BE,  THE OLD GUY'S ARC AND BACKSTORY IS MORE INTERESTING GENERALLY BUT NOT TONS AND TONS HAPPENS IN THE 156 PAGES OF THIS THING. IT'S ALL GENERALLY AN OKAY STORY. MEH.

PS. OKAY, BUT THE PART THAT IS SOMETHING IS THAT I THINK THE ARTIST COULDN'T DRAW VERY MUCH SO A TON OF THE CHARACTERS ARE COPIES OR POSSIBLY JUST TRACINGS OF OTHER CHARACTERS AND HOLY CRAP THAT ELEVATES PART OF THIS STORY. LIKE THE GUY ASKING FOR A THREESOME IS JON ARBUCKLE, THE GUY ON THE DATING APP IS OWL FROM MOG, MEGG AND OWL, THE COCAINE GUY IS TOP CAT, THE HOMOPHOBIC MECHANIC IS CHARLIE BROWN, THE NICE CANADIAN BOSS IS VERY VERY MUCH A TRACING OF CLIFFORD THE BIG RED DOG. AND A BUNCH OF OTHER PEOPLE THAT WERE DRAWN IN STYLES THAT DIDN'T MATCH THAT CLEARLY WERE SOMETHING LIKE THAT, BUT I COULDN'T IDENTIFY. I DON'T KNOW, THAT PART WAS ABSOLUTELY GREAT.
