Comics Alliance on OPTIC NERVE #14

“Comics Alliance on OPTIC NERVE #14” / Comics Alliance / John Parker / May 20, 2015

There are only a few true pillars of alternative comics left standing, and Adrian Tomine’s Optic Nerve continues to produce amazing stories at a rate nearly double the frequency of Neutral Milk Hotel albums. Yes, Optic Nerve is entering its twentieth year of existence with its fourteenth issue, but that rarity only adds to the uniqueness of the experience it provides. Each of Tomine’s short stories is suffused with emotions occurring just beneath the surface, and even though no character is outwardly showing how they really feel, you still know exactly what they’re thinking. That kind of subtlety just can’t be found in any mass-produced alt comic dumping out an issue a year.
