Review of 'Killing and Dying' on 'Goodreads'

5 stars

The thing about short stories are that rather than intruding on the character, you’re simply using your keys to be in their apartment when they’re not home. Adrian Tomine’s sense of timing in when to choose to enter and with precision describe these diverse people’s lives is outrageously good – and then to draw such suggestive and different panels to illustrate the work approaches perfection.
