Image Comics presents a surprisingly honest and touching account of a trans girl surviving through sex work in Seattle. The Pervert is an unflinching debut graphic novel that is preoccupied with work—what we put into our work and what it takes from us.

Continuing the narrative begun in the Eisner-nominated comics magazine Island, The Pervert features painted colors by Remy Boydell and the writing debut of Michelle Perez.

Michelle joins us for a discussion that ranges from public policies around sex work to the art of slice of life comics and the importance of trans naratives.
