Scenes From an Impending Marriage, by Adrian Tomine
A tiny little graphic novel that Tomine first gave out as a gift to the guests at his wedding. There are a few funny moments, especially when Tomine and his fiancee are choosing a DJ. Tomine captures the hypocricies and absurdities of the whole process, and he's not as needlessly grouchy here as he sometimes depicts himself (although still pretty grouchy). It's a sparse book, but for $9.95 it's a pleasant half-hour of your life.
