Optic Nerve #9
First new Optic Nerve issue in over a year!
The previous issue of OPTIC NERVE was selected for inclusion in the literary anthology THE BEST AMERICAN NON-REQUIRED READING 2002, exposing Adrian Tomine's art to a wider audience than ever before. After a lengthy period of writing and planning, Tomine returns with his longest, most ambitious work to date. With a projected length of over 100 pages, this fictional story examines the troubled sex-life of a confused, obsessive, Japanese-American male in his late twenties, and his cross-country search for the perfect girl. This issue is the first of three chapters.
