    1. Adrian Tomine era o menino-prodígio da banda desenhada alternativa americana, as histórias curtas introspectivas com protagonistas diversos (tanto em género como faixa etária e estatuto social) que vem a desenvolver na Optic Nerve conseguiram alcançar suficiente notoriedade para que o artista tenha conseguido ilustrar para o conhecido The New Yorker, não que seja mais válido que fazer bd mas pelo menos tem mais prestigio (ver origem latina da palavra).Neste número de Optic Nerve, o comic [...]


    2. The part where Adrian is in his office talking to himself, saying "Well, fuck it. I'm into "floppies," all right? That's what I like, and that's what I'm gonna do!" and his wife walks in made me laugh out loud. I really liked Hortisculpture too, though am curious why Tomine and Clowes are so obsessed with emulating old newspaper comics. I guess it's all part of the nostalgia surrounding comics or "graphic novels" being (sort of) embraced into the mainstream. Amber Sweet is great. The end is beau [...]



    3. A great little issue as Tomine plays with the format of comics to tell two fun, but very different stories.A lot of indie cartoonists don't bother with individual issues anymore, preferring to put out full books that garner more attention and are a bit easier for non-obsessives to find and read. But Adrian Tomine still loves the old-fashioned indie comics (as he admits in a little strip in the back). His love for the format really shows in this little 40 page issue, which at six bucks still feel [...]


    4. Two pretty darn great short stories and one short autobiographical piece:1. Failing artist/gardener who creates a new art form (hortisculpture) that nobody appreciates, which drives him to distraction.2. Young woman who bears an uncanny resemblance to a porn star, and the ways in which this resemblance affects her life and relationships. 3. Tomine reacting to changes in the field: to publish BOOKS or to continue publishing 'floppy' comics? Funny.As usual, Tomine is astoundingly capable of repres [...]



    5. Looks like Tomine is copying Clowes . Smart move, too bad Tomine can't write. The isolation and snark is getting old. I grew up with optic nerve. Too bad optic nerve didn't grow up too.
