Optic Nerve 12

Optic Nerve #12 is out!

Don't "wait for the book to come out, then download an illegal scan and read it on your phone" you guys!
In this new, long-awaited issue, award-winning Shortcomings cartoonist Adrian Tomine returns to the multiple short story format familiar from early issues of the iconic series.

"Amber Sweet"
 These 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.
“A Brief History of the Art Form Known as Hortisculpture”
On top of these two stories, and for a full "cool, nostalgic, retro" effect, it comes with two pages of letters to the author and a "pointless, dashed-off autobio strip to fill a few extra pages" (except it's the contrary of pointless or dashed-off).
