The Loneliness of the Long-Distance Cartoonist

£16.99

Through a series of exquisitely observed autobiographical sketches, Adrian Tomine explores his life in comics – from an early moment on the playground being bullied, to a more recent experience, lying on a gurney in the hospital, and having the nurse say ‘Hey! You’re that cartoonist!’ it’s self-deprecating, honest, and above all else, humorous. As he mines his conflicted relationship with comics and comics culture, and people at large, he once again animates the absurdities of modern life and how we choose to live it.
