    The third in a series of collected short stories from Drawn & Quarterly by the legendary Japanese cartoonist, whose previous work has been selected for several annual 'top 10' lists, including those compiled by Amazon and Time.com. Drawn in 1971 and 1972, these stories expand the prolific artist's vocabulary for characters contextualized by themes of depravity and disorientation in 20th-century Japan. A philanthropic foot fetishist, a rat-ridden retiree, and a lonely public onanist are but a few of the characters etching out darkly nuanced lives in the midst of isolated despair and fleeting pleasure. Black-and-white illustrations throughout. 208p.

    "One of the most gifted graphic novelists of our time." --WiredKilling and Dying is a stunning showcase of the possibilities of the graphic novel medium and a wry exploration of loss, creative ambition, identity, and family dynamics. With this work, Adrian Tomine (Shortcomings, Scenes from an Impending Marriage) reaffirms his place not only as one of the most significant creators of contemporary comics but as one of the great voices of modern American literature. His gift for capturing emotion and intellect resonates here: the weight of love and its absence, the pride and disappointment of family, the anxiety and hopefulness of being alive in the twenty-first century."Amber Sweet" shows the disastrous impact of mistaken identity in a hyper-connected world; "A Brief History of the Art Form Known as Hortisculpture" details the invention and destruction of a vital new art form in short comic strips; "Translated, from the Japanese" is a lush, full-color display of storytelling through still images; the title story, "Killing and Dying", centers on parenthood, mortality, and stand-up comedy. In six interconnected, darkly funny stories, Tomine forms a quietly moving portrait of contemporary life.Tomine is a master of the small gesture, equally deft at signaling emotion via a subtle change of expression or writ large across landscapes illustrated in full color. Killing and Dying is a fraught, realist masterpiece.

He has been called 'the grandfather of Japanese alternative comics' and has influenced generations of cartoonists, but, until now, the majority of his work has remained unavailable outside of Japan. The first in a chronological multi-volume series, 'The Push Man and Other Stories' is an eye-opening introduction to the provocative and profound comics of a modern master. Includes a Q&A with Tatsumi. B&W illustrations. 208p.
