  • 32 Stories Special Box Set Definitive Edition


Between the ages of seventeen and twenty, Adrian Tomine self-published a series of "mini-comics": small, hand-assembled booklets that he wrote, drew, and distributed himself. Entitled Optic Nerve, these comics were comprised of short vignettes and stories which displayed a youthful energy, an unabashed sense of experimentation, and the first hints of the distinctive, realist style that Tomine would go on to perfect. This special edition of 32 Stories presents those rare, early mini-comics for the first time in archival facsimile form: all seven issues in their entirety, faithfully reproduced and collected in one box.
