Adrian Tomine’s illustration of Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom for The New Yorker.
Has anyone read any of Adrian Tomine’s Optic Nerve work? It’s mostly realistic poignant slice of life short stories. I haven’t read them all but the stuff I have read, I enjoy very much.
I’ve read them and think they are great. Issue #12 came out last year and it was one of the best comics for me in 2011.
The most recent one I read was #11. I think it’s a shame that he isn’t better known. There are a lot of fans that are obsessed with making superheroes “adult” or “realistic,” but Tomine’s comics actually ARE realistic.
