Adrian talks Optic Nerve at SPX

Watch here: Small Press Expo / November 25, 2012

Adrian Tomine's comic book series Optic Nerve, initially self-published while the artist was still in high school, marked the emergence of a prodigious new voice in comics. His crisp visual depictions of contemporary culture are married to a similarly incisive narrative style that sharply delineates the elusive shadings of flawed personalities. His recent books include the graphic novel Shortcomings and Scenes From an Impending Marriage, as well as the latest issue of his still-ongoing Optic Nerve series. Tomine will discuss his work with critic Dan Kois.
