This careful attention to detail is indicative of his approach to storytelling. He has an incredible ability to capture universal fears in a handful of minimal panels – the fear of failure, the uncertainty of what we dedicate our careers to, and the everyday terror of navigating our lives. In the final section we get a glimpse into Tomine’s family life, with the beginnings of his relationship with Sarah, now his wife. While on a date, the pair sit opposite a couple who are coincidentally discussing his graphic novel Summer Blonde. It transpires that while the woman is a fan, her boyfriend most certainly isn’t. They eavesdrop as the irate stranger dismisses Tomine’s work as “Gen-X pseudo-profundity” and his writing as “pure writers’ workshop bullshit”. Sarah flies into a rage defending his honour, barely persuaded by Tomine to leave the restaurant. As they depart, he realises she is the woman he wants to marry.
