Andy feels uninspired and unmotivated with where his art degree will take him and decides to drop out in his final year. His parents, however, won’t let him lie around and pressures him to go out and find a job if he won’t be continuing with his education. Between figuring out his future and longing for Yumi, his art school crush, Andy feels even more lost than ever. That is until he lands a job offer working at a zoo in which he is the exhibit. In another dimension.
What a delightful read! This graphic novel is fresh and funny, sarcastic and witty. The drawings are simple, yet detailed. While reading Tune, I almost imagined that there was some shred of truth to some of it with how poignant and seemingly accurate Derek managed to capture the life & feelings of an art school student. What an interestingly sci-fi turn this story takes, which also leaves off with the reader wanting more of what happens to Andy.
I loved the writing and the art of Tune. Absolutely a new fan of Derek Kirk Kim’s and any fans of Scott Pilgrim and that similar witty writing will love this graphic novel too!
