Adam Cadwell names SCENES FROM AN IMPENDING MARRIAGE best comic of 2011

“Best of the Year ” / Forbidden Planet Blog / Adam Cadwell / December 22, 2011

1 – Scenes From An Impending Marriage by Adrian Tomine (Drawn & Quarterly).
Although this had a spine, you could never call it a graphic novel, it’s a comic. Tomine hones his wryly amusing observational style and draws seemingly effortlessly in a looser style that suits it really well. It is somehow curmudgeonly and sentimental all at once. It’s an honest and sweet story of Tomine and his wife made for the guests at their wedding and never intended for publication. I feel lucky to have been able to read such a personal work of art.
