I know Tony Consiglio from The Ink Panthers Show podcast where he usually drops in every now and then and completely livens up the episode with his funny stories, brilliant comic timing, and quick wit. It’s a shame the podcast is now twice-yearly (or thereabouts) instead of weekly or even monthly because Consiglio’s stories remain some of the most entertaining podcast episodes I’ve ever listened to.

Like the Ink Panthers hosts Mike Dawson and Alex Robinson, Consiglio is also an indie comics arti

Looking over the other reviews here on Goodreads, it's pretty obvious that Tony Consiglio's "110 Perc(ent)" is a pretty divisive book. Its story of three older woman and their fanatic love for a cheesy boy band called 110 Perc(ent), the way it disrupts their so-called "real" lives, can come off as somewhat mean-spirited to some but I believe Consiglio has a genuine sympathy for his characters. I'd be willing to bet that Consiglio, like most comic creators, has his own obsessive passions and this ...more

Having been a hyper-fannish person at a point, I can really relate to the women in this book. Yeah, they're at least ten years older than me at the youngest, but it doesn't change the devotion or understanding of what that devotion can bring.

Consiglio focuses about 1/3rd on the negative results of hyper-fannishness and the other 2/3rds showing the shades of gray, not just in the hyper-fannishness but also in the lives of two of the three women who make up the narrative. Why do women far beyond

A random find at a used bookstore, the quotes from Alex Robinson and Ivan Brunetti sold me. A great surprise, funny, humane and cruel in equal measure. I'll be tracking down the rest of Consiglio's stuff if you need me.

What an original and interesting comic! It definitely made me feel sad and irritated and then glad and angry - all of these things for these female characters.

I think a lot of these reviews suffer from expectations. I read the book as part of the Ink Panthers podcast book club, a show where Tony is a frequent guest. I knew what I was getting into, and this wouldn't be a straight ahead story about a boy band.

I enjoyed the art, I liked the story and found the whole thing enjoyable. It was dark with several characters behaving atrociously. I liked that each of the main characters had a satisfying character arc - some going up but others going down. I wou

Pushed as a comical story, I was very disappointed when I realized it's a drama.
The 3 main female characters are potrayed as pathetic, middle aged women going through a mid-life crisis by obsessing over a teen boy band.

Although I enjoyed the book, the brutally painful portrayal of the verbally abused wife and the graphic portrayal of the perv, were a little hard for me to handle. This book is definately for a mature teen or older audience.

I should have loved this--it was about adult women who are fanatics about a boy band. I love teen culture and so this should have been right up my alley. Instead, it was just OK. Maybe that is b/c the characters were not great. They were generally just stereotypes of 50-year-old women. I basically read it in one sitting though, so it was compelling enough to stick with it.
