Tony Consiglio was born and raised in Queens, NY by two Sicilian immigrants who happen to be his mother and father. Tony spoke no English when he frst attended school and walked around with his name and address safety-pinned to the front of his shirt. Upon receiving his College diploma from the School of Visual Arts, Tony proceeded to forge his high school diploma under his younger brother Johnny's name so that he could help him get hired at the local utility company. Ironically, Johnny's yearly income is three times that of Tony's best year. Besides gorging himself at family functions, Tony is best known for his comics Double Cross, which semi-autobiographically details his life, as well as his graphic novel 110 Percent. He is currently working on a story that is taking way too long and that he someday hopes to finish. Tony begrudgingly resides/perspires in Phoenix with his wife Chris. It's a dry heat. Yeah, right.
