Summer Blonde, by Adrian Tomine

Here’s a collection of short stories in graphic format. Stylistically, they owe a great deal to Dan Clowes, of “Ghost World” fame. There are no gimmicks or superheroes here; just four short pieces that demand to be taken seriously as literature. Tomine’s tales are rooted in loneliness and angst, and work well in the comics format.
