5.0 out of 5 stars A great little book, 1 May 2008
This review is from: Little Nothings Vol.1: Curse of the Umbrella v. 1 (Paperback)
This is a collection of a series of one page autobiographical musings in comic strip form, originally published in Trondheim's French language online blog. As the title ("Little Nothings") suggests, the strips seem very slight at first, but thanks to having a hundred of them collected, they actually manage to gain some cummulative power and offer quite detailed insights into Trondheim's life. And he's just a regular confused guy, so don't worry, you'll most likely be able to relate. The book has stuff about family life, adopting cats, vacations, winning the grand prize at a comic con, playing with your childrens toy lightsaber, watching ER on tv, meeting strange people in the street, and lots of anxieties and paranoia about modern life. The artwork is quite beautiful, with lush watercolors. The book is pretty much essential for people who like down-to-earth autobiographical comics, and it will most likely still be a good read for everyone else. Recommended!
