Bundled Extra/Let It Begin: Optic Nerve #13 To See Comic-Con Debut In Advance Of July 31 Store Drop


Drawn and Quarterly sent out word this morning that they will have copies of Adrian Tomine's Optic Nerve #13 on hand at this weekend's Comic-Con International. The latest comic book in the lauded series will then hit more widely with a store drop on July 31st with a launch event scheduled for Bergen Street Comics on August 1.

One of the great things about Comic-Con International for attendees is that you find yourself stumbling across a few comics that you didn't know were coming out. Last year I witnessed a number of comics fans and creators agog that copies of Gary Panter's Dal Tokyo were on hand. I like this sort of thing, although always, always, always: if you've ordered it to buy from someone closer to home, I urge you to honor that commitment. Still, I think it's an overall good. Ideally you'll buy one for friend, pick up your copy at the corner store and then get a third copy to have signed at one of Adrian's signing. Optic Nerve is the last of the traditionally-pedigreed, comics-format alternative comics from that golden era of the early to mid 1990s, and we should cherish every issue.
