Scenes from an Impending Marriage Cover

 

Review-A-Day

"Adrian Tomine, the graphic novelist who created Optic Nerve, sketched a series of comic strips to be given to their guests as wedding favors, depicting what he and his fiancee were experiencing in preparing for their nuptials. These cartoons were recently published as the book Scenes from an Impending Marriage, and, while it represents something of a departure from his usual material, the result is still 100 percent Tomine." Gerry Donaghy, Powells.com (Read the entire Powells.com review)

Publisher Comments:

MAKING LIGHT OF NUPTIAL NARCISSM

At the behest of his soon-to-be wife, Adrian Tomine set out to create a wedding favor for their guests that would be funnier and more personal than the typical chocolate bars and picture frames. What started out as a simple illustrated card soon grew into a full-fledged comic book: a collection of short strips chronicling the often absurd process of getting married. A loose, cartoony departure from Tomines previous work, Scenes from an Impending Marriage is a sweet-natured, laugh out-loud skewering of the modern marriage process, including hiring a DJ, location scouting, trips to the salon, suit fittings, dance lessons, registering for gifts, and managing familial demands. The most personal and autobiographical work of Tomines career, Scenes from an Impending Marriage is a charming, delightful token of love.
