Mr B's review

‘Killing and Dying’ follows a plethora of different lives with Adrian Tomine’s signature clean, crisp art style with cutting dry wit. A genius of the format who utilises simple but effective graphic techniques to depict his characters with clarity and devastating humour. A sure hit for Chris Ware fans.

Description

In his first full length work since Shortcomings in 2007, Adrian Tomine has produced another unforgettable collection of stories and characters: ‘Amber Sweet’ shows the disastrous impact of mistaken identity in a hyper-connected world; ‘A Brief History of the Art Form Known as Hortisculpture’ details the invention and destruction of a vital new art form in short comic strips; ‘Translated, from the Japanese’ is a lush, full-colour display of storytelling through still images; ‘Intruders’ depicts a man obsessively trying to find his way back to a former life.

From the master of the small gesture, it is a fraught, realist masterpiece about the weight of love and its absence, the pride and disappointment of family, the anxiety and hopefulness of being alive in the twenty-first century.
