32 Stories: Special Edition Box Set
In 1991, Adrian Tomine self-published the first issue of Optic Nerve. Consisting of three sheets of paper, and with a print run of twenty-five, it was a less-than-auspicious, largely unnoticed debut. In the following three years though, Optic Nerve developed at a startlingly rapid pace: the artwork and writing evolved with each story, production quality improved, page counts increased, and by issue seven sales had reached 6,000. In 1994, Drawn & Quarterly took over the publishing duties on Optic Nerve, and the original seven stories were sold out and left out of print. 32 Stories presents those rare, early editions.
