"Shortcomings" part 3 of 3
In this long-awaited conclusion to Adrian Tomine's three-part epic, the story leaps across the country, taking place entirely in New York. All of protagonist Ben Tanaka's worst (and most amusing) traits are brought to the fore as his obsessive quest reaches a fever pitch. His best friend, Alice Kim, finds herself at an unexpected crossroads in her life, forcing her to make several life-altering decisions. But whatever happened to Ben's girlfriend, Miko Hayashi? That and many other answers are revealed as our protagonists walk and talk their way through the streets of Brooklyn and Manhattan, all delineated in Tomine's evocatively pristine style.
Final part of a three part story. Continued from issues 9 and 10.
After flying to New York to confront Miko, Ben discovers she has begun a new relationship and is not interested in reconciling. Meanwhile, Alice finds love with a woman named Meredith, and decides to move away from California.
