This short comic book is made up of brief comic strips Adrian Tomine wrote/drew about his upcoming marriage to his wife Sarah. They take in things like planning for a wedding DJ, sorting out the wedding invites, worrying about what to wear, etc. In short the banal details of planning for such an event.

I love Tomine's work usually but this book (originally done as a party favour for the wedding guests) isn't as interesting as he and his nearest and dearest would like you to think. It's the usual stuff people who are planning a wedding go through and nothing more.

The book is also a really small hardback with about 48 pages. Cute and dinky, it's a great little gift if you were going to Tomine's wedding but as a comic book it's ordinary and unimpressive compared to his usual work.

Fans of Tomine's other work may be a little surprised by this offering: a sweet, fast and loose collection of strips about his and his wife's preparations for their wedding, created as a party favour for their guests. Tomine's art actually benefits from the off-the-cuff manner of the work, possessing an energetic spontaneity that his more considered works lack. The small, palm-sized nature of the book makes for an attractivce package, and it would certainly make a lovely gift for those who don't normally read comics.

I saw this in The Economist recently and checked it out on Amazon. It is funny, hits exactly the right spots, and the male and female characters are just so typical. Everyone who has borrowed it has bought a copy for themselves. Just enjoy - it makes fun without malice.
