Summary:
" ... Deftly rendered character character sketches. In these narratives, we see a keen expanding intelligence at work"--Wired.

"Worth reading just for Tomine's eloquent restraint and literary leanings"--The Boston Phoenix.

For the first time ever, Adrian Tomine's remarkable stories from the fast four issues of his breakthrough comic book series Optic Nerve will be collected in one sharply-designed edition! Featured here are 16 stories by this prodigious 23-year old talent, from the title story about a man and his failure to come to grips with his failed relationship to the Eisner-nominated "Pink Frosting", a vivid and unsettling glimpse at the suggestion of violence murmuring beneath the surface of everyday life. As with Art Spiegelman's hugely-successful "Maus", this book transcends the limiting "funnybook" genre. Through a series of crisply-drawn stories, Tomine often focuses on the intricacies of human relationships and his almost restrained, understated approach has led more than one reviewer to call him the "Raymond Carver of comics."  Read more...
