Optic Nerve #12 has shown up on a few "best of the year" lists.
The A.V. Club:
"Adrian Tomine is one of the medium’s masters of the short form, and the new Optic Nerve contains one for the canon in “Amber Sweet,” a beautifully brittle story about a young woman who discovers that she resembles a famous porn star."
Comic Book Resources:
"...It's the other story, 'A Brief History of the Art Form Known as Hortisculpture' that's the real gem, as Tomine explores in humorous fashion the travails of attempting to create art and the nagging underlying feeling that you are completely ill-suited to do so."
"Generally, getting 12 issues of a comic book over 16 years is not a great average, but when the book you're getting is as good as 'Optic Nerve,' you'll wait as long as it takes and you'll like it. Published by Drawn & Quarterly since 1995, 'Optic Nerve' #12 was released this year and with it, yet another wonderful peek into the mind and heart of one of the best creators in the business."

We are offering a set of exclusive prints featuring two of Tomine's most elegant and evocative images, signed and numbered by the artist.

In addition to the two prints, all orders will include a small original sketch by Adrian Tomine, personalized to the name of the purchaser.
