MAKING LIGHT OF NUPTIAL NARCISSM

At the behest of his soon-to-be wife, Adrian Tomine set out to create a wedding favor for their guests that would be funnier and more personal than the typical chocolate bars and picture frames. What started out as a simple illustrated card soon grew into a full-fledged comic book: a collection of short strips chronicling the often absurd process of getting married. A loose, cartoony departure from Tomine's previous work, Scenes from an Impending Marriage is a sweet-natured, laugh out-loud skewering of the modern marriage process, including hiring a DJ, location scouting, trips to the salon, suit fittings, dance lessons, registering for gifts, and managing familial demands. The most personal and autobiographical work of Tomine's career, Scenes from an Impending Marriage is a charming, delightful token of love.

A cute little book poking fun at wedding planning. If you enjoyed Something New: Tales from a Makeshift Bride, you'll enjoy this little book, too.

Nice little book. Small black and white drawings, small print. Adult content, realistic, unremarkable. Vanity publication.

A very cute, teeny-tiny little book. Tim and I are fortunate to not have to deal with the mixing of two cultures or unreasonable requests from our parents, but the rest of this book is pretty spot-on! This was originally created as the couple's wedding favor (wow!) and I'm impressed. Ours will not be this cool.

This small short hard-cover comic book is also a bit short on creativity or insight. It was a pretty straightforward presentation of what couples go through preparing for a wedding. For a incisive comic book about marriage see Jules Feiffer's Marriage Is An Invasion of Privacy. It's wonderfully funny and very perceptive.
