SCENES FROM AN IMPENDING MARRIAGE
by Adrian Tomine (Drawn & Quarterly, $9.95)
Adrian Tomine's new book is quite different from his previous work. Utilizing a smaller format, and more cartoonish style, Scenes from an Impending Marriage documents, in several smartly staged and well told scenes, some of the humorous drama before Tomine's wedding. Here you'll find a lot of honesty and a frequently hilarious exposé of an often overwhelmingly stressful event. This is pure Tomine and a joy to read. Highly recommended.
