Staff Reviews

If you love Adrian Tomine's Killing and Dying, why not go back to the beginning? These stories are unnerving, dark, quiet, and intriguing - perfect for cultivating a fine sense of alienation during a sweat-filled summer.

— Bonnie


Collecting the first four issues of Adrian Tomine's acclaimed comic series optic nerve, this book offers sixteen concise, haunting tales of modern life. The characters here appear to be well-adjusted on the surface, but Tomine takes us deeper into their lives, subtly examining their struggle to connect with friends and lovers.
