(W) Adrian Tomine (A/CA) Adrian Tomine
14 brings Adrian Tomine's multifaceted, expressive cartooning to a new peak with a short autobiographical strip and two stories. "Killing and Dying" is about a father's struggles to be supportive: it centers on parenthood, mortality, and stand-up comedy. "Intruders" depicts a man obsessively trying to find his way back to a former life by revisiting places he once knew. Optic Nerve
14 will appear on the twentieth anniversary of Tomine's beloved comic book series, in whose pages the landmark graphic novel Shortcomings
was first published. Each story in Optic Nerve
14 reveals new dimensions to Tomine's unique visual sensibility and complex, character-driven stories.
