Adam Thirlwell on Killing and Dying in WSJ

“Adam Thirlwell on Killing and Dying in WSJ” / Wall Street Journal / Adam Thirlwell / December 11, 2015

"...Talking of which, for pure innovation, chutzpah, and so on, I loved the graphic novelist Adrian Tomine’s book of stories, Killing and Dying.” Naturally, (I mean, this is Tomine, after all) there are marvels of delicate cartoon characterization—but what I also revelled in was a corresponding precision of language: like the title of the title story, where the various senses of killing and dying ricochet off each other."
