At the behest of his soon-to-be wife, Adrian Tomine set out to create a wedding favor for their guests that would be more funny and 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 token of love.
Adrian Tomine is the author of Shortcomings, Summer Blonde, Sleepwalk and 32 Stories. He is a New Yorker contributor and lives in Brooklyn with his wife and daughter.
