4.0 von 5 Sternen Insightful, entertaining, and poignant, 16. Februar 2000
"32 Stories" really works on many levels: as an insight into the artistic evolution of Tomine, as a showcase for his talents (ranging from wacky illustrations to downright sobering dissections of failed relationships), and as a collection of stories exploring the realities of isolation in modern life. While "Allergic" is many fans' favorite strip here (no doubt due to its offbeat, exaggerated artwork and sadistic humor), Tomine *really* shows his talent in stories like "Smoke," "Train I Ride," and "Haircut," which combine his considerable story-telling abilities with cutting, poignant images that tell a thousand words. Stories like these also serve nicely as prototypes for the later, more sophisticated Optic Nerve comics that Drawn & Quarterly would release.
Please do smaller merchants and independent distributors a favor and order this book from your local bookstore, or directly from Drawn & Quarterly.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Tomine is the literal visual counterpart to Raymond Carver, 3. August 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Okay, I'm bias. I have a crush on the man but that doesn't mean you can't enjoy Adrian's work. He brings about bittersweet narratives that are not unlike Carver's own. '32 Stories' collects the mini-comics he put out in the early 90's. These are the stories that made me confess undying love for his work...(give me a break, I was 14 and melodramatic.) This collection defintely shows the great range Tomine can work with and will easily become a book that you will reccomend easily to friends.
'Sleepwalk' contains his more heavy-hearted work and '32 stories' carries his more cynically humorous self published endeavors with his comic, Optic Nerve. I highly reccomend both.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fun read, 1. Mai 2000

I first heard of Adrian Tomine from my comparative literature professor. His stories contain real-life characters that readers can relate to. Some of his stories are sad, and others are funny in a painful way, and still others are just humorous. Adrian Tomine is an original artist and he is one of my favorites. Sleepwalk is also a great compilation of his stories, but I haven't finished it yet. One of the stories in sleepwalk made me cry.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Definitely worth checking out, 28. Juli 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Sleepwalk, overall, is the more consistent and better collection, but some individual stories in this one - particularly the last one, the lovely "Grind" - stand as some of Tomine's best work. Please be aware that the storytelling here has more in common with Raymond Carver or even (maybe) James M. Cain than, say, the styles of Stan Lee or maybe (even) Neil Gaiman. Cool intro by the author as well.

5.0 von 5 Sternen mmm mmm good, 14. September 1999
Von Ein Kunde
you can watch Adrian Tomine's work mature in this book drastically...it goes from bad silliness to incredible...incredibleness. Some of the stories in the middle and towards the end are just...wow. It's sad his drawing style got a lot straighter and neater...we can see here his early scratchy sketchy wild artwork along with some great stories like "Smoke".

5.0 von 5 Sternen The greatest comic book for the adolescent and adult reader, 30. April 1998
I bought this book a few years ago upon reading some outstanding reviews. The hype was all true. Adrian Tomine is amongst the best independent comic book writers and it shows in a collection of some of his best work. For anyone who went through the pain and agony of highschool and life itself, this book is for you.

I am stunned by tomine's mastery of graphic storytelling, all the hype is deserved. Understated and incisive.
