    Description

    Adrian Tomine Optic Nerve #8 "Bomb Scare" Page 27 Original Art (Drawn and Quarterly, 2001). Alienated high school student Scotty hears about his mother's plans with her new boyfriend, in this page from the acclaimed comic series by Adrian Tomine. Optic Nerve began as a somewhat crudely drawn self-published minicomic, and quickly flowered into one of the best drawn and written "slice of life" comics, now from Canadian publisher Drawn and Quarterly. Tomine's work fits in well with D&Q's books by Joe Matt, Seth, and Chester Brown, but with a quality all its own. This page is in ink, graphite, and blue pencil on Bristol board, with an image area of 10.25" x 16". A second color overlay on velum is attached with tape. Overall Excellent condition.
