In the new, long-awaited Optic Nerve 12, award-winning Shortcomings cartoonist Adrian Tomine returns to the multiple short story format familiar from early issues of the iconic series. 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.

First printing: September 2011.
