I've been waiting a long time for issue #12 of Adrian Tomine's comic book, Optic Nerve. It'll be available on Wednesday.
Find a local comic shop that sells it. Order it directly from the publisher.
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. Full color, 40 pages

I gobble down each issue of Groo: Friends and Foes faster than our bumbling hero slurps down cheese dip. In issue 4 (out now from Dark Horse), Groo and Rufferto stumble into his old “friend,” Arcadio the Hero, who is working on training dragons to help him look more heroic. Once Groo gets involved, the […]
The field of data analytics can get intimidating, even for business professionals who constantly rely on it. But at its heart, its purpose is to simplify.
