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 Tomines previous work,Scenes from an Impending
Marriageis 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.
