(W) Adrian Tomine (A/CA) Adrian Tomine
Killing and Dying is a stunning showcase of the possibilities of the graphic novel medium and a wry exploration of loss, creative ambition, identity, and family dynamics. Adrian Tomine's gift for capturing emotion and intellect resonates here: 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. "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. In six interconnected, darkly funny stories, Tomine forms a quietly moving portrait of contemporary life, creating a fraught, realist masterpiece.
