Tomine, Adrian – 32 Stories: The Complete Optic Nerve Mini Comics
32 Stories: The Complete Optic Nerve Mini Comics
This was the first mini comic I ever bought, at the suggestion of a lovely comic shop worker in Frankfort, IL. I know, there aren’t too many of those, but it’s a good thing that there was one there because she opened me up to a whole new world. Since I became a mini comic freak after reading these, it’s probably a safe bet to say that these are some of my favorite stories of all time. His allergy to peanut butter still makes me laugh every time I think of it, and there are just a lot of great, insightful little gems in here. Oh, and I sold my run of his mini comics on eBay recently for something like $80 in a fit of extreme poorness (strangely enough, I have another set somehow), so thank you, Adrian Tomine!
