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 Tomine's 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 Tomine's career, Scenes from an Impending Marriage is a charming, delightful document of the little moments leading up to the big day. Praise for Adrian Tomine: 'Tomine is, trust me, superb.' Sam Leith, Daily Telegraph 'Near perfection . . . Tomine is a superb graphic novelist.' Daily Telegraph 'Visually stunning . . . absolutely essential.' Independent on Sunday 'Rendered with uncluttered beauty, the dialogue is so convincing that you can almost hear the characters speak, and it is alight with truth.' Neel Mukherjee, The Times
