SHORTCOMINGS, 32 STORIES reviewed by PopMatters

“Truth Against Truth: The Work of Adrian Tomine” / PopMatters / Monte Williams / July 7, 2009

Adrian Tomine has a gift for capturing body language and facial expressions, with the result that his characters often say more in a silent panel than most comic book characters say with an entire bloated word balloon. And oh, the things they say; characters in Tomine’s comics share a trait with characters in the films of Todd Solondz, meaning they’re some of the most authentic, believable assholes and screw-ups in modern fiction.
