Optic Nerve #12
By Adrian Tomine
Saddlestitch comic pamphlet, 40 pages / 6.625 x 10.125 inches / full-color.
$ 5.95
Published by Drawn & Quarterly, http://drawnandquarterly.com/
Coming August 17th

In the new, long-awaited Optic Nerve #12, award-winning Shortcomings cartoonist Adrian Tomine returns to the multiple short story format familiar from early issues of the iconic series. These new full-color stories showcase Tomine’s trademark humor and observational skill, making Optic Nerve #12 a great entry point for new readers. “A Brief History of the Art Form Known as Hortisculpture” deftly manipulates traditional comics idioms to tell a story of horticulture, patents, and misunderstood art forms, while "Amber Sweet" is a disconcertingly modern tale about a case of mistaken identity.


The Beguiling notes: I think we all knew that Adrian Tomine was working on something new, but today's announcement of a 12th issue of the series coming this Summer caught us by surprise this afternoon! Excellent news for readers of great comics.

As a reminder, Adrian Tomine will be in Toronto for TCAF May 6-8, 2011. For more info check out http://torontocomics.com/adrian-tomine/.
