Acclaimed cartoonist Adrian Tomine (New York Drawings, Shortcomings) returns with a dazzling new issue of his two-decade-long comic book series! Optic Nerve #13 features three complete stories, each distinct in their tone and visual style. 'Go Owls' is a dark comedy about 12-step programs, drug dealing, and minor league baseball. 'Translated, from the Japanese,' illustrates the diary of a young Japanese mother, caught between two countries and hovering on the precipice of divorce. 'Winter, 2012" is an autobiographical glimpse into Tomine's home life and his ongoing struggles with the modern world. Throughout Optic Nerve #13, Tomine channels contemporary zeitgeist and vernacular to produce flawlessly designed, compellingly readable stories.
