Drawn And Quarterly Kicks Off Weekend Of Arts Comics Publishing News With A New Optic Nerve
I'm not certain how much publishing news there will be over the weekend at the Toronto Comic Arts Festival, but Drawn And Quarterly let slip a nice one to start the extended weekend out: there will be a 13th issue of Optic Nerve. The all-time alternative comic book by Adrian Tomine will release a new issue in conjunction with this Fall's Brooklyn Books Festival, where Tomine will be a special guest.
As much as Adrian Tomine has had a lot of success packaging his work into books, I think I love that material best as issues of Optic Nerve, and I hope the series never goes away. The last issue was published in September 2011.
