What I’m reading – 32 stories

This is a collection of Adrian Tomine’s Optic Nerve, a mostly self-published mini-comic that he started in high school. This fact was a surprise to his future editor at Drawn & Quarterly, since his work was already mature. (I mean to say, sophisticated, not naughty.)

This is actually a revised collection. Tomine was not thrilled with the slickness of the first collection – it was too unlike the roughness of the original mostly Xeroxed issues. So this is a boxed set of that contains reproductions of the these publications.
