Adrian Tomine - Killing and Dying (2015)

"Brooklyn-based cartoonist Adrian Tomine has been drawing professionally since he was in high school. Now, at 41, he’s an in-demand illustrator whose work regularly graces the covers of the New Yorker and classy Criterion Collection movie re-releases. ... His new collection of short stories, Killing and Dying, is about as pure an expression of that love as an artist has produced during the recent boom in literary comics. Far more diverse in style than anything yet from the notoriously meticulous artist, Tomine’s six stories about people striving and failing span four years of the author’s life, and mark a significant change in the way he works. They’re also very funny. ..."
